Proposal: Robotics

I committed, but my commitment shows that I only have 151 Total Rep. So I didn't raise the commitment score since the proposal only needs 200+ Rep users to proceed.

enter image description here

I registered for Area 51 just to commit to this proposal. So is it possible that the link just hasn't propagated yet? You can see that the screenshot was taken only 4 mins after I committed.

This question indicates that it takes a day to update. But if I click my name to go to my Area 51 profile, I can see all my linked Stack Exchange profiles. I have over 200 Rep on three sites.

Is there something about Area 51 or the commitment process that I'm not understanding?

  • I think it's the same situation as mluisbrown had, a new Area 51 account doesn't pick up it's association until later. Area 51 is apparently running off very old stack exchange software, so I wouldn't be surprised if it had a daily cron job that updated some kind of has 200 rep on another site flag and that is sued rather than interrogating the accounts list.

  • @MarkBooth Okay. Well, +1% tomorrow then. Yay robots! Commented Oct 17, 2012 at 13:07
  • Hopefully. I think there is at least one more of my referrals who won't be registering as a 200rep user today as well, so we might get both % points we need by tomorrow. *8')

Would a recalc work? http://area51.stackexchange.com/reputation

  • We're at 99% but that's because you just committed. I'm still showing as 151 Total Rep. Out of curiosity, is that just a query against the SE database? Commented Oct 17, 2012 at 15:36
  • im not really sure, but i came here after seeing arduino die, so hopefully this goes through well and either you get updated or someone else joins

  • It should go Beta tomorrow. Once my accounts link in, I'll add the needed 1%. You might also want to join EE.SE. Arduino questions pop up on there often. Commented Oct 17, 2012 at 15:46
