Reputations charts viewed by Month and Week on SO somehow "disintegrate". But Quarter, Year, and All Time reputation-views look correct.


I checked that again, but no changes in compare with yesterday status

    Well, the numbers look to be all kinds of wrong, but can you be more specific as to what you mean by "disintegrate"? – Shog9 Mar 7 '12 at 15:20
  • -1,716 for me - DOH!! – Adam Rackis Mar 7 '12 at 15:58
  • @Shog9 I can't be more specific, because simple not is possible increase reputations in 2-8k per three days for bunch of users, – mKorbel Mar 7 '12 at 16:12
  • @mKorbel: yeah, I see the bogus numbers - if that's what you're talking about, that's all I need to know. – Shog9 Mar 7 '12 at 16:18
  • @Shog9 agreed that's right, thanks – mKorbel Mar 7 '12 at 16:23
  • @Shog9 looks like as value are correct, thanks – mKorbel Mar 9 '12 at 0:16

It's not really clear what you mean by "disintegrate" - but certainly they don't tie up with what happens if you look at the "reputation by time" part of the user accounts.

I have a sneaking suspicion this may be due to questions being undeleted: so when compared with a snapshot of reputation taken (say) on Sunday at midnight, Michael Stum may indeed have over 8K more reputation than he did before... but most of that reputation was actually earned before Sunday... it's just that it popped back into existence after being deleted.

Alternatively, it's just a nasty bug somewhere which has no particular way of squinting at it to make sense ;)

  • too hard to say whatever wise, without looking into the Database, nobody knows .... – mKorbel Mar 7 '12 at 9:51

Emmett fixed this.

This guy still sticks out like a sore thumb in the month league, but that appears to be completely legit. He really has answered 290 questions in under 2 weeks.

  • You used the same link twice. – Jeremy Mar 9 '12 at 3:55
  • Fixed... That's what I get for rushing – Shog9 Mar 9 '12 at 3:59
