I'm active in several StackExchange sites. My overall network profile shows different rep for one site. According to the local site, ELU: https://english.stackexchange.com/users/6385/teylyn my rep is 2051, bu t in the network profile it shows as 2151. How does that compute?

Screenshot to clarify: Overall network profile

  • Ah, fine, but how can the overall profile show 100 rep more than I actually have? I could understand if it showed less because that could be due to a timer job not having run yet. But how about more rep than I have??? – teylyn May 22 '13 at 11:02
  • I am seeing 2,051 on both your ELU and network profiles? – Oded May 22 '13 at 11:04
  • Are you talking about the graph? That does look wrong to me. – Oded May 22 '13 at 11:06
  • Yes, it's the graph. I've added a screenshot to my Q. So, the graph in the overall profile does not show the correct rep. Is that a bug? – teylyn May 22 '13 at 11:08
  • I was corrected by another dev - we cache for 10 minutes. Lets wait for that long to see if the graph corrects (we did a manual recalculation on your rep, so it should be OK now). – Oded May 22 '13 at 11:10
  • As a general note - if you see different reputation values (or badge values etc.) on different pages the answer is almost always caching. – ChrisF Mod May 22 '13 at 11:14
  • Okee-dokee, I waited more than the ten minutes, and I can check back tomorrow, but the fact is that the network profile continues to show 100 more points than the site profile. How can caching be the cause for more rep than I have? How can you explain that away? – teylyn May 22 '13 at 12:34
