The discrepancy is by design:
Total reputation is your current reputation on the site (accurate to within 24 hours).
Month reputation is the amount by which your reputation changed that month, excluding "private" reputation events. Certain reputation events are excluded from your public user profile, such as deleted posts or downvotes, so those are excluded ...
Not for at least a decade
Instead of making theoretical assumptions about what people *might* gain in rep, why not go on what people have actually earned?

Jon can't exceed the daily gap without a large number of accepted answers (which, along with bounties, are the only things that don't count towards the gap). To get accept marks, you'll have to keep on contributing.
If Jon were to stop answering, he would still gain 200 points every day for the foreseeable future, but other users who continue to gain ...
You can't find your rank, but you can find out how well you stack up against the highest in a tag.
It shows you at the bottom of the list (unless you're actually in the list) so you can compare to how much you need to improve to be on the list of top users.
It's not exactly what you're looking for, ...
I think the best you can do is use this data.SE query which currently puts you at 108 in the C# tag.
You can also use this query if you just want a single tag or see who the other users are below is the first 109 users in c#

1 Jon Skeet 56046
This math is pretty straightforward. At the moment I write this, Jon has 606,882 rep and #2 has 463,940 - a gap of about 150,000 rep. He gets 200-400 rep a day, the rep cap plus accepts. (Other answers have said 10K a month, which is roughly 300 a day.) Assume, for the fastest possible catchup:
Jon's accepts stop dead when he stops posting answers
User #2 ...
A TLDR, simple answer:
Go to this StackExchange Data Explorer Query, provide your userid (clip it from your profile url on the site) and a Reputation Cutoff, and you'll see where you rank (in terms of the top N percent, as opposed to percentile rank discussed further below).
1 - Rank vs All users
200 - Rank vs those tracked in the ...
Your Stack Overflow account appears at the top, but shows your ranking in relation to others. You are presently #12914 out of all qualified SO users.
Your other accounts all have less than 200 reputation. Leagues only track users with ~200 rep, which is why none of your other accounts are displayed.
Jon Skeet is about 143K reputation above the next highest users. Furthermore, he has over 27,000 posts. He hit the reputation cap today 6 hours in to the day. Most likely, he will get 200 reputation even if he doesn't answer another question for a long time to come. But that will limit his ability to get accepted answers, dropping his rate down some. This ...
I wonder, is StackExchange hiring SQL programmers? I know how to get Unique values from a table!
Yes, we are!...but that's beside the point.
The issue here isn't solved by a Distinct() or any other simple means, because it's a high speed transactional problem. The load on a single SQL server is kept down via dirty reads using a READ UNCOMMITTED ...
This is intentional for the moment, we have an issue with the leagues population causing an inordinate amount of load on our SQL servers which I have yet to find time to investigate.
I just turned it on for Stack Overflow specifically, it's the SE 2.0 sites causing the SQL issue...Stack Overflow is fine.
We've been a little busy wit the failover to our ...
The way StackExchange.com leagues work are fairly simple: look at the total now, use that value, do the same tomorrow, the day after, etc.
Leagues are calculated from one day to the next by looking at the total reputation each user had. Now, unfortunately that means when a user's rep is recalced on the site-side of things (where we do fix all history), the ...
It looks like a duplicate row sneaked into stackexchange.com's ReputationHistory table. While we're not yet totally sure what circumstances led to your 2011-10-21 Stack Overflow reputation being the only duplicate row in the entire table, we've added some extra logic to prevent this from happening again. Thanks for the report.
The "+3579" in your screenshot is the change in rank, not the change in reputation. Therefore, prior to the last "tick" of the list (I think in that case it's weekly), your rank was around 4.5k - you have moved up 3579 ranks to the new rank of 1080.
The reputation change is only shown with the "week reputation" column and the such.
The W3C Link Checker test executed on the Leagues page gives server side errors in the following seven links, which I have manually verified to be broken:
quarter: 171th of 108499 ==> 0.1576%
month: 113th of 39822 ==> 0.2837%
And the reputation league shows the best one. So in this case, you have a better classification percentage in the quarter league although in the absolute classification you are higher in the list.
Update: as you show in comments, note that users with less than 200 ...
The means to do this would be to utilize our API, which wouldn't be very difficult, quite a few people have done similar things.
I don't think this would work as a core feature because reputation alone is already a bit much when it comes to extrinsic motivation for some - adding more carrots at the end of the stick in a contest is definitely not going to ...
Welcome to Stack Overflow and congratulations on a great start. You hit the reputation cap twice in your first three days which is quite an accomplishment.
The Stack Exchange top users pages, aka leagues, are recalculated only once per day. That explains the difference between the reputation that the league reports for this month and the live number you ...
You will need to pass the 200 reputation mark before your reputation is comparable to the likes of the Skeet and co.
If you go to your profile page (click your username in the top nav) and click the link displayed in the image below:
If you want to access it quickly now, you can use this link. But for future reference use the highlighted method above.
The Stack Exchange leagues page allows you to see all users, sorted by reputation over various time periods (week, month, quarter, year and all time), with your own profile placed nicely at the top. For example, if I select "All Time", I currently see this:
You can see the lists for all sites in the Stack Exchange network.
Note that it also notes on that ...
In the 6 to 8 weeks this takes to get fixed, you can use the following userscript that solves the bug:

// @description set selected site in league
// @author rene
// @match https://stackexchange.com/...
To understand how weekly rankings work, use the "prev week" link to compare results.
This week for scorpi0:
Rank: #516, Weekly rep: 317
Last week for scorpi0:
Rank: #23910, Weekly rep: -4
So last week, scorpi0 earned rock-bottom reputation earnings. That put him/her almost at the very bottom of all users. This week, scorpi0 was active and earned (...
