Reputation Gauge Broken?
Something very strange is going on with my 'Reputation' gauge. My 'All time' Reputation is listed as 1,080, but my 'Year' Reputation category reads 1,120. I've gained more reputation this year than in all my time on this site? That doesn't make sense. They should be the same, because all my Reputation gain has happened this year. My 'All time' gauge appears to be stuck, because when I gain Reputation, it goes up on all the other gauges, but not the 'All time' one. I don't mind, and my main listing appears to be accurate, but I was just wondering if this had happened to anyone else, and thought I'd let the admins know about the glitch.
Also, on an only vaguely related topic, I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to explain to me the logic behind when you get Reputation for voting up questions and answers and when you don't. I know that you stop gaining after 200 a day, but even before that, sometimes I get 1 Reputation for voting someone up and sometimes I don't get any. What determines this? Thanks.
10 points for voting in a 24 hour period that is counted ?hour to hour.200 point limit as you said and that includes your votes.This is also counted hour to hour,not from say midnight to midnight.
Then there are the Times of Mystery. I have seen my points go in reverse at times and been confused as to why it seems days before I get points for voting. I just keep voting anyway if I like the answer or whatever.
I just noticed that my reputation points are higher for the yearly total than for the over all total. I searched for a previous answer and found this short thread. The answers here don't seem clear to me. Can some explain this to me?
Personally, I think the admin people, especially Heidita, have the ability to watch your every move when your away from SD and when you are naughty, they take away rep points and eventually, if you're naughty enough, you get a bad reputation.
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not watching you.
You have some good questions. I'm just not sure whether you'll get an answer to this one. I've noticed a discrepancy in mine too.
You'll also notice that everyone's "Joined" date is incorrect...another SD glitch in the system.
