What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

EDIT

This is either

  1. a bug report - it does not work for showing data for multiple days; or
  2. a bug report - it should not allow more than one bar to be highlighted; or
  3. a feature request - make it show data for all highlighted days


Original title: Is there a secret easter egg here, or nothing to see, move along?

Thanks to our kind StackExchange overlords, we now have a new rep graph, one that is ostensibly very usable, relevant and appealing.

enter image description here

I was playing to zooming in and out, which works great (Jon hasn't hit 1000 in one day yet??). Then I found out that you can click on the (top) graph, turning it gray.

  • Is there a game behind it? - Can't crack this.
  • Is there a correlation to the by-time "tab"? - doesn't appear to anchor
  • Why does Shift-click work exactly the same as Ctrl-click, against convention?

Well, is there something more to the clickable gray bars?

Only jeff hit 1000 on meta, IIRC. –  YOU Mar 29 '11 at 2:53
    
This is Jon on SO. I think I have seen other users go beyond 1000.. –  RichardTheKiwi Mar 29 '11 at 2:57
    
@YOU Only Oleg hit 1000 on SO –  RichardTheKiwi Mar 29 '11 at 3:52

Clicking filters the rep entries below to show only what happened on that day. It seems to me that being able to select multiple bars is a bug as it only shows the rep changes from the last day you clicked.

BTW, this is hardest to notice on very populated graphs like Jon Skeet's.

Ah... on a notebook 1280x800, Firefox fills the page exactly baselining just below the lower graph. Didn't even see that there was anything under it. –  RichardTheKiwi Mar 29 '11 at 0:55

EDIT: You may find the numbers to be slightly off when compared against the users' rep page/graph. This is due to various shortcomings of the data.stackexchange dump. In particular:

When bounty award was disconnected from acceptance, the acceptance vote is no longer generated. In the old bounty award scenario before this change, the acceptance vote does NOT carry a +15 rep change.

Compare the two users Oleg and Nick in the list below (positions 1 and 3) in this query: http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/s/1154/bounty-award-disconnect-from-acceptance-rep-handling
Oleg's 2 bounty awards (May 2010) were followed immediately by an accept vote (accept.vote.id = bounty.vote.id+1), whereas Nick's (Nov 2010) doesn't. The query that produced the list did not take this into account. It also does not account for downvotes cast, which has a maximum per-day impact of -30.


Useless trivia.. tangential to question, as response to YOU's comment

The field narrows to Nick Craver, Jon Skeet, Darin Dimitrov
