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Short Version: Yeah, we're out of date.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 I don't think its a big deal that it is a little out of date, was just wondering why my rep wasn't showing ;-) Thanks for the quick and detailed response!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 at 15:34
