Here's a breakdown of my accounts display on so, meta, german, cooking, sf&f and programmers:

rep display

As you can see, on some sites the rep display is differing (yellow) from the actual rep on the site (green). I checked at the respective site's /reputation page, and the green boxes seem to be accurate.

Is there a way to refresh the rep display cache? As a side note, the flair rep seems to be off too, it displays 4.4k whereas it should be 4.5.

    "it's just that I just hate inexplicable inconsistencies" It's not inexplicable; it's easily explainable by caching. Happy now? :-) – Cody Gray Mar 16 '12 at 9:45
  • If the value displayed on page A doesn't equal the value displayed on page B then the answer is usually caching. If it hasn't caught up > 24 hours later then it might be a bug. – ChrisF Mar 16 '12 at 9:47

  • My account shows a similar problem: 170 score at Skeptics, but 169 reported for Skeptics at other sites (and has done for a couple of days) - see skeptics.stackexchange.com/users/6236/energynumbers and meta.stackoverflow.com/users/164022/energynumbers?tab=accounts – 410 gone Mar 16 '12 at 20:50
  • Per site rep appears correct on your SE profile, so not really a pressing issue. It could be a minor bug, the easier solution of which would be to forget about your rep all together, it's just an integer on a database somewhere... – yannis Mar 17 '12 at 3:24

    @Yannis I never said it was pressing. But as I see it, this is one of the things meta is for - reporting issues. I can't pinpoint the timing exactly, but now that I think of it, this started to look the way it does now after some of the recent changes were introduced. And since this may well be connected that I think it was worth reporting. Whoever downvoted probably just looked at it from a rep-whoring point of view – takrl Mar 17 '12 at 10:46

The problem doesn't exist anymore, because the Accounts tab has been removed.
