How can I have reputation change greater than my reputation?screenshot

What is the "change" field even for?

    I'm fairly certain that's the rank change, not the rep change. – user98085 Jun 23 '13 at 13:01
  • Yep, that's it. – theunamedguy Jun 23 '13 at 13:02

The "+3579" in your screenshot is the change in rank, not the change in reputation. Therefore, prior to the last "tick" of the list (I think in that case it's weekly), your rank was around 4.5k - you have moved up 3579 ranks to the new rank of 1080.

The reputation change is only shown with the "week reputation" column and the such.

  • I always wondered what that meant; it's really not clear from the UI. Thanks for clearing that up. – p.s.w.g Jun 23 '13 at 17:33
