Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

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
    
thanks for info, I didn't know that. – YOU Mar 29 '11 at 5:03

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.

Without considering bounties, http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/q/96190/
The field narrows to Nick Craver, Jon Skeet, Darin Dimitrov
