Does the /reputation page still need a Trigger Recalc button now that reputation skew is a thing of the past?

Since quite a lot of things have changed during the last period, self triggered reputation recalculations1 are no longer needed. Shouldn't they be removed from the sites?

1. self triggered reputation recalculations are triggered by going to http://[stackexchangesite].com/reputation and pressing the button at the bottom of the page

  • Needed? No. Removed? No. Let it stay, just in case. You know. :) Commented Mar 7, 2012 at 9:13

According to Nick Craver's comment here, the self-triggered recalculations are slated to go, but they are kept around for a while until the team is confident that no glitches have slipped through.

    Yep, a few more crazy edge cases are around, (e.g. at this moment 58 of 1.6 million users are out of sync, so not bad at all), we're working through them. Commented Mar 7, 2012 at 11:20
