My StackExchange network profile shows this:

The header of the Movies and TV site shows this:

This difference has persisted for well over 6 months. I reported it back in August 2012 (where the numbers were 833 and 941, respectively. Consensus at that time was that it was a caching issue. I think the duration of the difference shows that there really is a mismatch somewhere. For me the rep (either way) is not an important issue, but if this reveals a bug somewhere it's at least good to know it exists, I guess.


Two day after rep recalculation as suggested by JoachimSauer below: no difference (other sites' statistics are updated).

    @JoachimSauer Yes, but the graph doesn't, even when the last rep event was days ago.

    Ah, I see. Seems like it's "just" a bug with the graph (or maybe even just the labels). When I first read this, I thought you expected a much wider bug (like some general miscalculation happening). Feb 6, 2013 at 13:18
  • @JoachimSauer I really don't know the scope of these calculations, just hope its not a big issue. Feb 6, 2013 at 13:19
  • @GertArnold Most likely you broke it and you'll pay for it. You're on your own... :)

    @Bart You may right be in so far that I've had a "history" at Movies. A massively upvoted question, including a rewarded bounty, was removed later when (beta) site policies changed, taking away part (not all - ??) of the rep. It was weeks after that that I first noticed the difference, so I can't really tell if this fact was related. Feb 6, 2013 at 13:36

    Have you tried triggering a rep recalc on the Movies and TV Reputation page? Feb 6, 2013 at 13:52
  • @JoachimSauer The depths of SE! Never knew this existed. Let me try. Feb 6, 2013 at 13:55
  • @JoachimSauer Doesn't seem to make a difference. But maybe that's a caching issue :). Feb 6, 2013 at 14:02
  • Well, think I found the cause. In short: deleted posts. In detail, see this: meta.stackexchange.com/q/210958/152859 Dec 10, 2013 at 21:05
  • @ShaWizDowArd Justice, finally! Good job. So you question should become an answer here I guess, if that belongs to the mod powers. Dec 10, 2013 at 21:29
  • @GertArnold just giving evidence, justice will be made if and when this is actually fixed. :-) Dec 10, 2013 at 22:44
