The user card in the revision list, for example here, shows the exact amount of reputation:

screenshot of reputation displayed as 159011

This is not consistent with how the flair works on (all?) other places in the site, e.g. under a post. There, the amount is displayed in units of thousands (k):

screenshot of reputation displayed as 159k

(or, in very special cases, millions (m).)

It used to be consistent, see e.g. this snapshot from 2017:

    This is definitely a recent bug. It used to be shown consistently. Feb 26, 2021 at 17:58

    @SebastianSimon you're right, I found an old example in the Wayback Machine.

    Note: When you are less than 10K Flair you get one place of decimal.

    Yes, this appears to be caused by a recent change. Another issue I noticed that could be related is that the vertical spacing has been reduced (example). The height of certain revision elements has also been reduced (example), although I don't think that that last one is an issue. Feb 26, 2021 at 22:45
  • This could be the recent change that caused all of that. Feb 26, 2021 at 22:53
  • Now also reported on MSO: User reputation is expanded in revision history page. Feb 27, 2021 at 11:14

    Badges also show the incorrect glyph on sites that have custom badges, defaulting to the SE standard circle. Raised in separate meta

    Another side effect of this issue: suspended users normally have their badges hidden on user cards, and this used to also be in revision histories, but now they don't. Mar 3, 2021 at 23:43

    You're right. That change probably broke my NSFW script as well.

  • I'm not sure any developer actually fixed this. The font change has been reverted which means the design codebase was reverted to some past version. Good chance it's a version before the bug that broke revisions, so when they'll fix it and apply the changes again, the bug reported here will come back. /cc @Glorfindel (maybe don't accept this just yet?)

  • @ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I can always unaccept, and this change was unrelated to the font change (the bug is from February, the font change happened in May).

  • @Glorfindel I mean that perhaps something caused the codebase to revert to version even before February. Jun 10, 2021 at 12:09

    @ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard After "Segoe UI" font change, the reputation is displaying as expected.

I prefer 151k instead of 151011, because to me it is more readable and I don't have to "count" the digits.

However I'd certainly be open also to supporting a modified feature request which asks to show 151.011k in your case, so that it's both easy to interpret and also exact/accurate.

    Why 151.011k when just adding the comma (which would be consistent with other things around the site? The decimal plus k is more confusing than just "151,011".

    @Catija The previous system with k just looked better. It's especially irritating when trying to count the number of digits in the 1 million club.

  • "The decimal plus k is more confusing". Your rep currently says 87.1k. That's already how it is (with decimal plus k). Not sure how this could be "more" confusing. Jan 6 at 1:25
