I joined english.stackexchange in May 2011 and my overall reputation now is 884. But if I check my reputation for the year, it is only 768.
Is there any reason for this. Since I joined english.stackexchange this year only, shouldn't my yearly reputation also be 884?
I had joined stackoverflow a long time back, are there any points that are carried over from there to here?
Update: On the link that Jeff mentioned, this is what I see.
** rep this quarter (4/1/2011 - 6/30/2011): 783 ** rep this year (1/1/2011 - 12/31/2011): 783 ** total rep 884 :)
And that was the source of my confusion. Considering that I joined only in May 2011, one would expect my total rep to be equal to rep this year and quarter.
But on the linked page, there is an entry for a bonus of 100 and that leaves a change of only 1 point. Even though I do not remember why I got the bonus, I can live with that. :)
