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

Just curious how this works:

My Stack Overflow reputation on my Stack Overflow CV shows an amount X, which is less than my actual Stack Overflow reputation Y. It's been this way for a few days. In addition, some of my 'favorite answers' on my CV have a lower # of votes than they do in reality.

How long does it take for this (I assume cached) value to be updated?

Short Version: Yeah, we're out of date. I'm working over the next couple of days to stabilize the updates process.

How it works: Essentially, we slurp down all the data we need to keep your accounts and answers up to date from the public API every day and what I originally wrote during our mad dash to the finish line is a little error prone. Couple that with the search rewrite I had to do to fix this and I just haven't gotten to shoring it up yet. It'll stabilize over the next week and updates should only lag by about a day.

Cool! I don't think its a big deal that it is a little out of date, was just wondering why my rep wasn't showing ;-) Thanks for the quick and detailed response! – Pandincus Mar 4 '11 at 0:56
Does this issue still exist? Because i i am facign same issue in my Career 2.0 profile after linking. Career.StackOverFlow.REP<StackOverFlow.PROFILE.REP – LNT May 8 '14 at 11:45
I'm wondering the same thing. It's been over a week since my Careers rep updated. – Calvin May 12 '14 at 22:59
@Calvin guess not relevant by now, but anyway this is most likely due to bug with the account, merging etc, better start a new bug report here on MSE. – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 '15 at 15:34
