I am currently trying to "Commit" to a proposal in Area 51. However, when I do so, it only recognizes my account as a brand new account, rather than using my existing one.

I have around 30k reputation across my StackExchange sites, but Area 51 only recognizes me as having 732 (from hsm.SE). It doesn't have the badge recognizing my membership in CS.SE, stackoverflow, etc.

I imagine this makes quite a difference for the "commit" phase, where the reputation of the committers matters.

Is there a way to make area 51 recognize my reputation from the rest of StackExchange?

My area 51 profile: https://area51.stackexchange.com/users/216830/jmite

My Network profile: https://stackexchange.com/users/414227/jmite

    I don't see anything obviously different about any profiles of yours that would explain why only one of them is showing. However, it won't actually affect anything. Your reputation only affects the commit phase insofar as you need at least 200 reputation on one other site to contribute to that part of the commitment score. Your reputation past that is irrelevant to the calculation and only for show. As long as it detects one you're technically fine.

  • It looks like it has updated now go show your correct rep (along with summing in the additional rep from your referrals).

  • @Tyberius Yes, this seems to be my problem, too. But I have been assigned only 101 rep when I have 4k+ elsewhere.
