Before anyone says that I'm whining about the re-calc, let me just say that I'm not. I actually do like it.
But I also like stats (and being nosy), so post how much rep you will lose:


SITE  Current  - Recalc  = LOST
-------------------------------
SO       8430  -   6156  = 2274
SF        426  -    314  =  112
SU        584  -    205  =  379
MSO      1372  -    765  =  607
-------------------------------
TOTAL   10812  -   7440  = 3372

The new reps can be found at the bottom of those reports:

Looks like I'm set to lose almost 6k rep total, most of it from SO. I think this is likely due to the two highly-ranked questions that were migrated to Meta and deleted from SO that I still retained points for - the pre-migration rep will cease to exist on either site upon the recalc.

Interestingly, after the recalc my Meta rep will have surpassed my SO rep:

SITE  Recalc  - Current = Change (%)
SF    540     - 687     = -147   (-21%)
SO    14252   - 19060   = -4808  (-25%)
SU    1415    - 1600    = -185   (-11%)
MSO   15572   - 16178   = -606   (-4%)
TOTAL 31779   - 37525   = -5746  (-15%)

By and large, it seems like I'm the hardest hit so far.

edit: Looks like the new https://meta.stackoverflow.com/reputation now reflects the Meta-specific rep rules.

  • That is defiantly something I didn't think about (migrated questions). – Kredns Mar 21 '10 at 3:43

For SO, the only site on which I actively collect reputation:

Current  -  Recalc  =  Loss
 34,288  -  37,444  =  -3,156 (9.2% gain)

Woo hoo!!

  • How'd you gain rep? – Maxim Zaslavsky Mar 21 '10 at 18:30
  • Very nearly the same for me. You gain rep if you regularly hit the rep cap. – Uphill Luge Mar 21 '10 at 19:03
  • @Maxim: You gain rep if your answer was accepted before hitting the cap. (Because acceptance bonuses are now fully immune) I've been surpassing the cap daily for three months, so... – SLaks Mar 21 '10 at 20:37

MSO  30314   - 29817  =  497

AFAIK, I only lose about 75 on SO from the reduced question rep, more than made up for by the new rep-cap rules.

  • I didn't know about the new Rep cap rules. Maybe that's why I'm losing less on SO than I thought I should. – gnostradamus Mar 21 '10 at 4:59

Percentage wise I'm pretty wiped. I think retroactivity by itself would be fair (after all, they should be able to update the scoring system), but the way it combines with bounties really isn't - its just like letting people spend money they don't have. I don't know how I'm losing 54% on meta when the the weighting isn't being changed though.

    The rep-report script for meta assumes meta will be changing to +5 question upvotes too. It's the script that's off. – Gnome Mar 21 '10 at 5:45

PS. My SO rep has now been recalculated, and I find myself on the same page of users that I was yesterday (I seem to have moved up by no more than a dozen places actually). So for me it was a virtual no-op.

SO change was small, but actually smaller than I thought. I took nearly a 1k hit on Meta though. Thankfully, Rep means nothing here. ;)

  • As at first I thought this was happening on Meta as well, I was far more upset about having privileges revoked than about losing the rep. There will be a ton of people on SO who will go under 3k or 2k after the recalc. There are probably some people who will go from > 3k to < 1k. – Jon Seigel Mar 21 '10 at 5:14
  • and at least some people that (deservingly) will go from over 5k to under 2k. – Earlz Mar 21 '10 at 19:50

Hmm, I think I'm reading this correctly..

Not much is changing for me.

SITE  Current - Recalc = LOST
SO     12,379 -  12016 =  363 (-2.9%)
SU         63 -     58 =    5
SF        101 -    101 =    0

I'm also ranked 385 on SO, I'm interested in how it changes after the recalc.

  • Went up to position 382, but the differences are too small anyway for it to matter. Anyway, good job everyone. – Kobi Mar 22 '10 at 6:20

Sometimes, oddly, it pays to not be active...

BTW, there's no linking bonus for MSO, right?

Well, I guess I'll post mine in the format everyone's using.

MSO  888     - 443    = 445  (-50.1%)

I lost more on MSO than on SO, but it doesn't matter here. Looks like I haven't really participated on SF that much... :(

Total lost: 950 rep points (counting MSO)

:'(

  • you won't lose as much on meta as the report suggests. question votes will still be worth +10 on meta. – Kip Mar 21 '10 at 20:00

I just had a recalc done on SO at my own request and lost a little over 400 rep, so I will be getting a chunk of it back now. The most significant hit in terms of percentage is at SF, but I really don't belong there anyway.

The hit on SO is isn't massive but it surely isn't nice to lose rep ;-)

I got 26 upvotes on my questions (combined) so that would explain for a 130 loss from the 336 loss on SO. Not sure where the 206 other rep points went to (migrated questions maybe?)

Doesn't affect me that much, but here is how it affects me:

Not sure why I am loosing 9 rep on SO when I have no question votes, but it's only 9 rep and it's not like I can do anything about it, so I don't really care. :)

Couldn't care less. I still think of these forums as modifiable Usenet / Fidonet. :-) But I do think these sites are lately changing too fast: should slow down a little, and do not change anything for a while to stabilize the system. They're becoming overly complicated.
