I have just noticed that the reputation statistics and the badge counts for users of sites that graduated in 2019 or December 2021 are still being updated, even though the other data are frozen. My understanding was that the Area 51 statistics would be frozen completely, not just the site statistics but also the rankings of top beta users.
Examples for sites that graduated in 2019:
- French Language: reps for the top users match reps on the main site, e.g. jiliagre, None, Gilles 'SO nous est hostile', LPH, etc. Notice that the order given here is based on actual reps, whereas the ranking on Area 51 appears to be based on the reps at the time of graduation.
- Spanish Language: reps for the top users match reps on the main site, e.g. Charlie, Diego, pablodf76, fedorqui 'SO stop harming'; the ranking on Area 51 does not match the ranking based on current reps.
Examples for sites that graduated in December 2021:
- Literature: by reps, Spagirl has hopped over Matt Thrower since graduation.
- Language Learning: no conspicuous differences on the first page, but reps and badge counts represent the current situation.
As a consequence, the rounded orange numbers to the left of the user cards go out of sync with the black numbers for reps inside the user cards.
Is this a bug or is it intentional?
