I've recently discovered the reputation page and Checked it that there it says I have 473 rep points, and on my SO account it shows me 471alt text

So where can this be wrong?

This is nothing unusual. The displayed rep often does not match the reputation report (when in doubt, the latter is the one that is up-to-date). You'd have to request a rep recalc (I wouldn't bother because of just two points), or wait for the next global rep recalc (which doesn't happen all too often). –  ЯegDwight Nov 4 '10 at 20:17
    
@RegDwight But which one of these reps counts for gaining privileges on SO? –  Gabriel Guimarães Nov 4 '10 at 20:22
    
For all I know from personal experience, the displayed rep is the one that counts. –  ЯegDwight Nov 4 '10 at 20:24

The number is denormalized so it is standard for it to be slightly out of date based on users getting deleted, posts getting deleted, and so forth.

But which one is used to grant privs on SO? –  Gabriel Guimarães Nov 4 '10 at 20:23

Changes to the rep system are being made, so that your displayed rep (used for determining privileges) will never be out of sync with the rep shown in the audit at /reputation. In essence, your reputation will always be correct, irrespective of deletions or other activity not previous tracked.
