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

My reputation report shows:

** total rep 9434 :)

Yet, on my SO banner, the rep shows as "DVK 9,432●5●33"

Which one is correct? Why?

The "2" difference makes this unlikely to be related to some timing/lag issue, since I only had a +10 vote and an accept all day today.

Please note that this is a technical question regarding logic in SO. Not an excuse to rant that reputation is irrelevant OR that it is the reason for existence :)

I'm guessing it may relate to double-counting (or not counting) my acceptance of some answer... but no idea how to check that theory.

It's a shame that the link gives the rep for the logged in user ;) – ChrisF Mar 24 '10 at 14:26
I see the same thing for my SO and MSO reputation reports, except that the reports show sums lower than the sums I see on the sites themselves. – Maxim Zaslavsky Jul 24 '10 at 8:02

Reputation report shows your future rep upon recalc.

Probably, you've deleted a post with a downvote recently after last recalc (March 21st)


One of your post with a downvote has been deleted by 10k+ users or mods after last recalc

(Note:Once a question is deleted, all the answers on that question also got deleted)


2 of your downvoted posts (by you) got deleted as balpha mentioned

Hm... Don't recall doing that - is there a way to query this out somehow? And Yeah, I Should Instead Go Work :) – DVK Mar 24 '10 at 14:09
Interesting. If true, something explaining this should be in the FAQ (if it's not already). – Randolpho Mar 24 '10 at 14:09
Could someone please edit this answer (my rep's too low to do so) to make "future rep upon recalc" bold. – DVK Mar 24 '10 at 14:10
@DVK: It might also have been that two answers you have downvoted where deleted. – balpha Mar 24 '10 at 14:13
You're right balpha – YOU Mar 24 '10 at 14:16
I know it's not in this case, but it could also have been a revoked answer acceptance. – ChrisF Mar 24 '10 at 14:25
ChrisF, True, also a migrated question with a downvote. so many cases! – YOU Mar 24 '10 at 15:02

You didn't--perhaps--accept an answer between opening the rep report and looking at the top of the page did you?

Not that I recall :) – DVK Mar 24 '10 at 15:02
See OP: "I only had a +10 vote and an accept all day today." – DVK Mar 24 '10 at 15:03
