Take a look at this: (no bragging just focus on the part in red circle)

209 reputation on Movies & TV, right? Well, think again!

This is not the ordinary cache here, it's like that for long months now.

This made me curious, then furious and finally vicious so I went bug hunting. Here is my story.

Once upon a time, a protocol for sanity has been put on the table. One of its immediate results was:

if you’ve contributed something worthwhile to the site, you should keep the reputation for that even if it eventually gets deleted. “Worthwhile” here is defined as,

  • A score of 3 or greater
  • Visible on the site for at least 60 days

Awesome! And indeed, on http://movies.stackexchange.com I had a question which had score of more than 3 and was visible for more than 60 days before getting deleted. The reputation I gained from it is preserved in all places... except my network profile reputation graph. :(

I thought to myself "209? Let's prove that's the reputation I have if using the old rules". So I had.

  1. Start with 1 reputation point.
  2. Association bonus of 100 → 101 points total
  3. One undeleted question with 11 upvotes and 2 downvotes → 110-4 = 106 net change → 207 points total
  4. One approved suggested edit → 2 rep → 209 points total
    ##Q.E.D

Can the network profile reputation graph follow the same rules as the rest of the reputation calculations?

    I think I have an answer or two that's been deleted in a similar fashion which it seems to account for on MSO. Maybe it just hates Movies & TV. :P – Tim Stone Dec 10 '13 at 15:47
  • @animuson can you merge this post as answer on the dupe then, since it 99.999% contains the cause? – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Dec 10 '13 at 21:02
  • @ShaWizDowArd I can't convert a question to an answer on another question. You're welcome to post this as an answer there and delete this, though. – animuson ModStaff Dec 10 '13 at 21:51
