I would like to be able to recalculate reputation more often than once every 24 hours. While I'm sure you wouldn't want every user to do this as often as they like, I feel that the more trusted users (defined at whatever appropriate threshold) should be able to recalculate reputation on a more frequent basis. I typically find myself wishing to recalculate my reputation in the following circumstances:
- When I downvote an answer that is subsequently removed. I feel that my downvote has done its job, it has gotten the user to remove the unhelpful content.
- When I have removed by own upvoted answer, either because it was duplicated or not as helpful as the score might indicate.
The unearned rep of the latter type actually bugs me like you wouldn't believe. But I have already burned through my daily recalc thanks to the former type.
Short of that, maybe at least give me the timestamp of my last recalc inside the "once per day" error message, so I'm not hitting that page more often than necessary.
