My reputation for the year is more than my total rep.

enter image description here

How is it possible that my year reputation is higher than my total reputation? This is my first year on this site so it's not possible that I lost points because of downvotes I received in previous years.

  • Did you lose 110 rep to downvotes the year before?

    At a guess, the problem here is probably cacheing.

While I wanted to ask this question on meta I found this question. It's asking, 'Why is my total reputation less than my monthly reputation?'

The answer is likely the same as for my question.

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 from the leagues as well.

In other words, "total reputation" includes private reputation events, while "month reputation" does not.

Now we only have to change 'Month' to 'Year' and my question is answered:)
