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

If I understand correctly, an Area51 proposal in the committment phase needs to have committed users with a certain total point value, based on their reputations on other trilogy sites. But is it only the amount of reputation a user has when committing that counts toward that total, or is it always the most current amount? In other words, say I committed to a particular proposal when I have 17.5k 9.6k rep on StackOverflow, but after a week, my SO reputation goes up to 18k 10.7k. Does that increase in reputation get reflected into the total point value needed to get the Area51 proposal out of the committment phase?

Every time any user commits or un-commits, that proposal's commitment score is recalculated from scratch. So, yes -- the increase in your SO reputation is reflected by the commitment score (after someone commits or uncommits).

In addition, it is calculated once per day, at midnight UTC I believe, so... – PearsonArtPhoto May 17 '13 at 13:15

Quoting from this answer

  • A user with no reputation gets a score of 1
  • A user with 200 reputation on 1 site gets a score of 1.7
  • A user with 200 reputation on 3 sites gets a score of 3.1
  • A user with 10000 reputation on 1 site gets a score of 7.2
  • A user with 10000 reputation on 3 sites gets a score of 19.6 (these are extremely rare)

So, you won't have any difference for 17.5k to 18k up.
