Why is my status bar reputation different from stackoverflow.com/reputation ?

I've noticed that the score displayed on the /reputation page is 197 lower than that in my profile (https://stackoverflow.com/users/244297/eugene-y). Is it possible to find out the reason?

  • @Simon Maybe. But the difference there is much lower (6) and the log is showing a greater value, than profile. Oct 12, 2010 at 19:06
  • They're still for similar reasons (e.g. upvotes/downvotes on deleted posts).

Because your score is not updated for all changes. The /reputation page is the more accurate and shows what you will have after a recalc.

Possible reasons:

  • You got upvotes on some answer and then the question was deleted.
  • you delete a post with upvotes of your own.
  • there are some more scenarios.
