My reputation report shows:

** total rep 9434 :)

Yet, on my SO banner, the rep shows as "DVK 9,432●5●33"

Which one is correct? Why?

The "2" difference makes this unlikely to be related to some timing/lag issue, since I only had a +10 vote and an accept all day today.

Please note that this is a technical question regarding logic in SO. Not an excuse to rant that reputation is irrelevant OR that it is the reason for existence :)

I'm guessing it may relate to double-counting (or not counting) my acceptance of some answer... but no idea how to check that theory.

Reputation report shows your future rep upon recalc.

Probably, you've deleted a post with a downvote recently after last recalc (March 21st)


One of your post with a downvote has been deleted by 10k+ users or mods after last recalc

(Note:Once a question is deleted, all the answers on that question also got deleted)


2 of your downvoted posts (by you) got deleted as balpha mentioned

  • Hm... Don't recall doing that - is there a way to query this out somehow? And Yeah, I Should Instead Go Work :)

  • Interesting. If true, something explaining this should be in the FAQ (if it's not already).

  • Could someone please edit this answer (my rep's too low to do so) to make "future rep upon recalc" bold.

    @DVK: It might also have been that two answers you have downvoted where deleted.

    I know it's not in this case, but it could also have been a revoked answer acceptance.

You didn't--perhaps--accept an answer between opening the rep report and looking at the top of the page did you?

  • Not that I recall :)
