I've recently created an account at Area 51, to follow and commit to a proposal. In the list of commited users my "total rep" is showing only the Area 51 reputation, but not the Stack Overflow one (the only one I have >200). The commitment score for that proposal is also showing 18/100 committers with 200+ rep on any other site, confirming I'm not included in the count.

Why is that happening? I looked at other questions and saw that most commonly it's either because of low rep (<200) or because of a delay in the database sync (I waited 3 days before asking here). Neither applies to my case. My accounts seem to be properly linked, at least my discussion user shows all of them.

Update: as a related question shows, that's probably a bug. Also, I'd like to point out that having <200 rep in Area 51 is not a problem, since many users (like this and this) are in the same situation, but their flair looks fine (as can be seen here).

  • Has there been any progress in resolving this issue? I seem to be having similar symptoms. Mar 28, 2012 at 6:06
  • @GeneGolovchinsky No progress so far AFAIK, but some mods seem to be looking at it.

  • Thanks! I had no response to my similar question, other than the initial comment that it was probably a duplicate of your question. Mar 28, 2012 at 17:53
  • Identical problem here.

This is fixed now.

The Q&A sites recently dropped all support for our "old" (guid-based) method of keeping track of account across the network. This change wasn't properly handled by some parts of Area 51. However, all of the missing data has been backfilled, and it should work correctly going forward. Sorry about that.
