110

With "reputation to the max" I now have 6,621,210 reputation. Unfortunately, this only shows as 6.6m:

Mucho rep

Other reputation levels are shown with three or more significant digits - e.g. 508k as Darin's rep shows above, or xx.xk for values in the [10k, 100k), or the exact value for under 10k.

Why the discrimination against users with over a million rep? Why not show 6.62m?

    You don't know the half of it; I am still listed bottom right instead of top left, my 2.3 million should trump your measly 662k.. hey.. wait a second! – Martijn Pieters Apr 1 '14 at 17:59

    It would be an atrocity for some ignorant nay-sayer to think that you only have 6,550,000 rep when you really have 6,649,999 rep. We can't slight the pillar of our rep community by 100k. – RustyTheBoyRobot Apr 1 '14 at 18:58

    Interestingly enough Stack Exchange already support the m. Is this a sign to upvote Jon? – TimWolla Apr 1 '14 at 19:50

    In all seriousness, should be tagged [bug] as well, m is for milli-, x/1000, M is for mega-, 1000000x. – Nick T Apr 2 '14 at 3:20

    @NickT: You could raise that separately. While I agree with the sentiment, it doesn't bother me on a practical basis. – Jon Skeet Apr 2 '14 at 5:50
  • What page is that overview? I don't know any that sums of rep over all sites. – Fabian Röling Nov 25 '17 at 18:53
  • @Fabian: On the "network account" page. Here's mine, for instance: stackexchange.com/users/11683/jon-skeet?tab=reputation – Jon Skeet Nov 25 '17 at 19:00
  • No, that's just the reputation graph that compares all accounts. I mean the picture in this question that compares different users and shows you with 6.6M. Also, I just noticed: Where does that number even come from? Even with all your accounts combined, you don't have 6 million reputation. Is this a counter as if there was no daily reputation maximum? – Fabian Röling Nov 25 '17 at 22:31
  • @Fabian: It was April 1st - I assume that the 2014 April Fool joke was reputation-based. (I don't remember it offhand.) – Jon Skeet Nov 25 '17 at 22:32

Sorry, but you're making a false assumption here. The "m" is not for "millions" (that would be "M"), but for morpfloggles. One morpfloggle is 1,003,214. Thus you have precisely 6.6m rep, to the 5th digit. We're just not displaying trailing zeros.

    That was some pretty quick indexing – JohnB Apr 1 '14 at 19:14
  • So: word made up at 2014-04-01 19:03:39Z. Search link posted at 2014-04-01 19:04:13Z (34 seconds later). Pictoral evidence posted at 2014-04-01 19:14:19Z (10m40s later). At what point did the result actually appear? – Joel Coehoorn Apr 1 '14 at 19:55

    You measure temperature in Fahrenheits, distance in yards, height in toes, volume in barrels, area in towels, so it's quite logical you won't count in metrical units ^^ – Danubian Sailor Apr 1 '14 at 20:41

    What's the German word for pleasure derived by someone at the cumbersome measuresome units of others? – kojiro Apr 2 '14 at 0:22
