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 seem to have 90 points more reputation on SO than I have earned. This happened today at about 2:30pm GMT. ** total rep 21278

But SO shows 21380. I was watching at the time and expected 21290, or there abouts.

The headline figure as displayed on your profile includes reputation gained or lost from deleted posts.

The figure displayed by the report is your true reputation taking these into account.

If you click on the "Trigger Reputation Recalc" button your headline value will be brought into line with the true value.

Thanks, I guess the extra points were from up votes immediately removed? – Remou Dec 21 '10 at 15:47
@Remou - they're removed straight away, but you might have had some cached data. – ChrisF Dec 21 '10 at 15:49

Reputation will now be kept in sync at all times. This change in behavior will roll out across the network soon, it's active here on meta currently.

It has to be one of those lazy loadings.

Which, as we all know, is comparable to those lazy answerings. j/k! – Andrew Barber Dec 21 '10 at 16:54
