There is a reputation graph on my activity page. The interval of abscissa on mine is several days. For someone else it is several months, and others years.

How is the graph generated?

It depends on how long one has been a member on the site.

The graph will pick up a max of 4 years of reputation data if it exists. If a member has been around less than 4 years, 1 year of data will be used, then 4 months, then (if a user has been around under 4 months), all the available data will be used.

  • My own graph doesn't seem to be consistent with this answer. i.imgur.com/XUl2vHy.png – Madara's Ghost Apr 28 '15 at 10:51
  • @MadaraUchiha - goes about a year back. The labels are not 100% accurate. – Oded Apr 28 '15 at 10:53
  • @Oded is this all server side? (calculation, I do see the values in client side) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Apr 28 '15 at 13:45
  • @ShadowWizard - the calculation and range are server side. – Oded Apr 28 '15 at 14:57
  • I see, thanks. Any chance it can be "exposed" like the flair? I was considering starting such a feature request for a while, but if you say now it's too minor to be worth spending any time, I prefer not starting a lost battle. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Apr 28 '15 at 15:14
  • Might be possible, in the future. There are still some consistency issues with it that I want to clear up first, @Sha – Oded Apr 28 '15 at 15:21
  • @Oded If there are 4 years on abscissa, are there 4 corresponding reputations on ordinate in theory? But I see there are 3 reputations on ordinate. – xshsinap Apr 29 '15 at 7:17
  • @xshsinap - not sure what you mean. Given that you have been a member here for less than 60 days, how would we show 4 years of data? – Oded Apr 29 '15 at 8:38
  • @Oded I mean why there are 4 scale on abscissa and ordinate scale only three. – xshsinap Apr 29 '15 at 9:12
  • @xshsinap - why shouldn't they be different? There is more space on the abscissa than the ordinate. – Oded Apr 29 '15 at 10:23
  • @Oded Yeah. I know what you mean. Thanks. – xshsinap Apr 30 '15 at 0:59
  • Why does this go up in steps? Why not show all available data all the time, like in the network profile graph? – Fabian Röling Aug 17 '17 at 12:14
