My reputation score gone as well? (How to contact admin?)

Answered on November 20, 2013
Created September 08, 2013 at 10:12 AM

When I logged into the new site, it didn't recognize my password, so I clicked the reset link.

It then appeared to create a temporary userid (Mike 37) instead of caveman_mike . Oddly, my question history was there, but my reputation went from 5,066 to something under 50.

I don't see how to contact the site admin, so I'm sorry about having to post this as a question.

And, I'm sorry to be fussy about something as arbitrary as a reputation score, but I really would like my number back.

HELP!

Thanks,

caveman_mike

In the old StackExchange (for some incomprehensible reason) it was possible to have multiple users with exactly the same username. During the import of the old data into the new system those duplicate users needed to be made unique, which explains why there are now users with numbers after their names.

We will be happy to help users get back all their identifiable reputation points, and going forward the reputation system should be consistent and stable. The main issues are directly related to ambiguities in the old StackExchange data dump.

Thanks for the quick reply. Last year, I asked a women on this site why she posted such an awesome answer as a comment (because I couldn't up-vote her/give her points for the answer). She said competing for points is a guy thing. (Maybe she was right!)

Hi Mike. We've got someone working on this. The old system apparently let you create multiple separate accounts with the same email address and we just need to get you into the proper one.

My reputation has disappeared too. I noticed it right after the change, but hoped that it would be restored when everything shook out. It still hasn't come back.

My reputation (as tattered as it is) has been restored. Thank you!

BTW, I love the new layout !

(I'll confess I hated it initially, but it has really grown on me)!

Hi @dzone, my account was linked to an email address that is no longer active. I've logged in under the very first account that I used, but I would like to get my old account back (@Thumper) Please let me know what I need to do. Thanks!

Crap, it was fixed for a while yesterday, this morning it's back down to 192 instead of 15.7K, what's up with the reputation system, seems broken.
