Looking at the community user for SO you can see there are a lot of votes. Surely some of those hit the rep cap etc etc. Is it possible that someone could calculate the community user's actual reputation?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The community user doesn't own any content to vote on. The only thing that could affect its reputation are the downvotes it owns, but even then the system is designed to not allow the reputation of any user to go below 1.
They're not community wiki, so Community "should" be earning reputation from them. (These two are its only rep-earning posts on the entire network.) As of this writing, the posts' scores are (+21 -1) and (+37 -1). Since
To calculate Community's overall deserved reputation, considering reputation it spent on downvotes, we must make some assumptions. Its voting record is:
Assume that its fraction of downvotes (6595 / (6595 + 50847) ≈ 0.1148114619964486) is the same between its votes on questions and answers. Then it has given about (0.1148114619964486 * 41074 ≈ 4715.766) answer downvotes, each of which costs 1 reputation.
It also owns anonymous suggested edits. Suppose it has already had at least 500 approved suggestions. Reputation from suggested edits are capped at 1000.
Therefore, its estimated overall score is about
Since its "real" reputation is negative, there's no surprise that its reputation shows up as the minimum (1).
