A Plea for Sanity Can we take a step back and consider this for a moment. What really happened here is we had a troll make a post to try and bait users into believing their unsubstantiated answer. And they successfully got a few upvotes in the process, and people fed the troll. We got trolled, and some people fell for it. Welcome to the internet. Getting ...

Your tone should match the way you'd talk in person with someone you respect and whom you want to respect you.

"Total number of raised flags marked useful" is the hover text for the entire line, not the (51).

You've cast 329 up-/downvotes, as shown in this widget: but for the Electorate badge only votes on questions count, and you only have 324 of those. The 25% rule is comparing your votes on questions (324) to your total votes (329), so you have a percentage of 324/329 = 98%.

Only non-wiki answer score is shown next to tag on main profile page. For example, for my top tag explanation says: Asked 5 non-wiki questions with a total score of 31. Gave 17 non-wiki answers with a total score of 95. And score next to it shows 95. Also, as Ash mentioned in comments, script runs on some time interval, so changes are reflected only ...

I'm not sure what you're referring to in your screenshot because there's nothing on that particular screen which talks about post dates. (Possibly you're misunderstanding the reputation graph?) But for the 'Curious' badge, you need to ask a "well-received" question on 5 separate days. Server time is UTC, so that's what accounts for a "day"...

"Impact" is an approximate measure of the number of people who have viewed your questions and answers. In your case, around 66 people have viewed your questions, which corresponds to the total view count.

Gonna guess those are Gravatar images? Sounds like something's down somewhere between you and Gravatar. We've had a couple reports to that effect earlier this week, but unfortunately there's not much we can do.

You mean this, taken right now from your meta profile? That information is cached (up to 24 hours, IIRC), so that explains why you don't see that information for new users. For other users, the score or number of posts may be a bit outdated.

This is your operating system and the site has no control over it. (The reason it looks fine in the question itself is because it's actually a rendered image of text using site fonts rather than actual text, while on your user page it's using your OS's fonts.) This is a known problem with Microsoft ClearType's "snap to pixel grid" kerning policies under ...

Per Jarrod Dixon, something did change. @LessPop_MoreFizz it's by-design. Comment flags weren't being counted correctly. Mystery Solved. I've flagged a lot of comments, huh?

Unicode names are allowed, and as long as they are not problematic, or do not meet the criteria for usernames generally (rude/abusive) they're fine.

You can't - these are just tags relating to posts you've made (I believe both questions and answers). It doesn't really affect anything - it just gives people an idea of the sort of stuff you've been involved in - as you post more, these will likely change to better reflect the stuff you are more knowledgeable about. :)

Hovering over the "Impact" (specifically the number of people reached) displays a tool tip telling you what it is:

status-completed Looks like this was fixed. Also, you have 8 now!

According to Oded at Meta.se An attempt at fixing an issue with reputation graphs has not taken into account that meta sites don't have reputation. It has been fixed now.

status-declined, although that doesn't tell the whole picture. It's not that Stack Exchange won't fix this, it's that they can't. According to the Meta SE post linked by @PrivatePansy above, Gravatar appear to have changed their underlying engine that renders the Gravatar image. The end result is that some people ended up with a Gravatar that was vastly ...

status-completed (or status-norepro?) - Arqade no longer has tags that look like the bullets in the question's screenshot, so the formatting of tags in the 'Top Tags' place is now consistent: This happened as part of the Stack Exchange Network-wide standardised site design rollout: ...there are several things that will now be standardized to follow the ...

The link is a little hard to find. Click "questions", then there should be a link for recently deleted questions. I see it on your profile, and the question appears (as a mod, I can see these for any user, whereas you will just be able to see your own). Does anything appear when you go here (That is the page that is referred to with that link. I can see ...
