I have 313 points listed here on Programmers, but on StackOverflow when I look at my summary it's showing 309 points for Programers.

The other stack exchange sites I'm on are updating properly, but not this one? Any ideas as to why?

I also need to explain, it's showing up properly under Programmers with the other sites I'm on, but on StackOverflow the value for Programmers is off.

Small inconsistencies like that are not uncommon, reputation synchronization is not immediate and what you are seeing on your SO profile is probably a cached version.

However, the missing +4 is a refund from a post that was deleted on March 17, and since there where some recent changes to reputation regarding deleted posts, this might be a bug after all. If your reputation on SO isn't listed correctly in a couple of days, post a comment to this answer so I can notify the developers about it.


Your P.SE reputation is listed correctly on your SO profile now, so it was caching after all.

    Yeah, the network tab is pretty aggressively cached for 10 minutes. Mar 21, 2012 at 4:41
