My reputation points in stackoverflow.com is 178. However when i open my profile at https://stackoverflow.com/users/166012?tab=reputationhistory#tab-top

and check reputation it shows somewhere around 240. Any idea what is wrong.

  • interesting reputation graph indeed... – François May 11 '10 at 8:11
  • why do you say so. Once i offered a bounty on my question and hance lost some points. – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:15

Go to https://stackoverflow.com/reputation

Currently shows 202 for you. Look closely at that list if you want to audit it.

  • I can see an entry 12 2698270 (-100) but why would i loose 100 points in one shot. – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:27

    @viswanathan - you lose 100 rep if 6 (I think) people flag one of your posts as spam/offensive (See S.Mark's comment). – ChrisF May 11 '10 at 8:29
  • Oh Now i realise. Thanks – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:30

You could try to request for recalculation, by flagging one of your post to moderators.

Here is my calculation

Questions: 225 
Answers: 90 
Lost: -58 (-50 from bounty, -8 from downvotes you got)
Answers you accepted: 48 
Downvoted by you: -5 
Initial: 1

You should have, around 301, but currently 193, may be one of your answer/question got flagged as spam or offensive? If thats is the case, you wouldn't get points back with recalc.

Have you experienced one of your post got downvoted a lot recently?

Edit: Let me make it up my calculations once I know the answer.

My above calculations: 301
You lose: -100 from that post
that results in 201, but actual one is 202 according to Jeff, so probably one of the post you downvoted is got deleted :-)

  • Sure let me check that. – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:09
  • No one of my questions got closed as it was duplicate but i dont think it got downvoted so many times. How do i check if anything was flagged offensive. – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:17
  • @viswanatha, I added some details on my calculations on your profile. but lets see, if you don't get points back with recalc, probably one of your posts got 6 flags of spam or offensive. and we can't check for now, I am not sure moderator could find or not. but anyway, please request recalc to mods to make one thing clear. – YOU May 11 '10 at 8:17
  • Maybe but i dont think i have posted something that can be flagged spam or offensive. Anyway let me cross check – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:18
  • Its not about anything recent. ALl of a sudden 2 weeks back my reputation showed 4 instead of some 100. However the graph was showing everything correctly. – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:23
  • yes i get it but still the graph must also match with my actual reputation right? – ckv May 11 '10 at 8:42
  • @viswanatha, may be graph don't display deleted post. but I am not so sure about that, because some users's -100 can see in rep-graph – YOU May 11 '10 at 8:49
  • @viswanatha, you could raise new question, about why you can't see that -100 in your rep-graph and but others can see, for example - Evan Carrol – YOU May 11 '10 at 8:56
