When I went to the Leagues to see my ranking in the reputation league, I saw this. Is this an error? My total reputation is less than my monthly reputation. total reputation less than monthly reputaion.

    Why does in need to be cleared? It's nearly a new month, and in the big scheme of things, 9 points and a monthly ranking don't make that big of a difference, does it? Jul 30 '12 at 9:30

    How is this too localized? I run into this all the time. Other people keep asking me about it, too. And the difference is often like 200–600 points, not just 9. It looks like a bug, walks like a bug, and quacks like a bug.

The discrepancy is by design:

  • Total reputation is your current reputation on the site (accurate to within 24 hours).
  • Month reputation is the amount by which your reputation changed that month, excluding "private" reputation events. Certain reputation events are excluded from your public user profile, such as deleted posts or downvotes, so those are excluded from the leagues as well.

In other words, "total reputation" includes private reputation events, while "month reputation" does not.

    So you can figure out how much private rep somebody has by looking at the leagues since they joined.
