Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I realize, per this meta thread, that a recalc is soon happening for everybody -- any way I can tell of it has already happened, for myself or any other user?

Looks like it may have happened for Jon Skeet -- he's 160K right now and I'm pretty sure he was around 144K earlier today (I track "half of Jon Skeet's rep" as a pragmatic watermark for "Stack Overflow Elite";-). Mine, however, seems to still be 79.3K (so, by not dramatically changing via the recalc, it's "dropped" below the magical "half of Jon's rep" watermark;-), while, per the rep-report, I should have 88.3K (above the half-of-Jon's-rep watermark again!-). So I think my recalc hasn't happened yet.

But, how can I tell? In either my own case, Jon's, and others'? Any suggestion welcome, thanks!

No idea how they're ordering this, I have a lower user ID than Jon's but still no recalc. – Kev Mar 21 '10 at 5:50
@Kev: Marc explicitly did a rep calc for himself and me. – Jon Skeet Mar 21 '10 at 8:11
@Jon - ah gotcha. – Kev Mar 21 '10 at 8:46
It seems to be rolling through the sites right now. – Ether Mar 22 '10 at 0:39

I will announce more on the blog on Sunday; even for the users who "have" a recalc, it's not quite right since it has bugfixes but not the +5 question dynamic.

Although it is true that for the referenced users, the question vote reduction is not going to matter a whole lot as they get the vast amount of their rep from answers anyhow.

OK, tx, can't wait for it to be Sunday (less than an hour to go, here in PDTland;-). – Alex Martelli Mar 21 '10 at 6:06

Blame me. I kicked off a few manually last night. As noted this doesn't include the 5/10 q/a - but that isn't a big factor for page 1. I believe that the rep-report should indicate where you are currently (88341). I can do a pre-emptive recalc for you if you like.

Edit: to avoid confusion, I finished page 1 column 1. So of course while all of us fully understand that rep is meaningless, and would never spend any energy or even button-clicks tracking it, we now all know where (on that scale of meaningless) we sit ;-p

I've checked, and a recalc on column 2 would not shuffle anyone into column 1, so I've stopped there.

Thanks Marc, yep I see column 1 all renormalized now, thanks! – Alex Martelli Mar 21 '10 at 16:06

There have been several good suggestions made to notify users after their rep has been recalculated.
