I tried to compute my GPA. For 3 hours. I failed.
Nothing I did matched remotely with what my school gave me.
I have a copy of my transcript (with very little information) that says my GPA after 9.75 credit hours was 61/15 to 5 sig figs. There is no way for either 61, 15, or 39.65=61/15*9.75 to appear.
Trying to take an average of my grade points underestimates by about 0.2, weighting then by credit hours underestimates by about 0.12, weighting again by 1 (regular), 1.25 (honors), and 1.5 (AP/college) overestimates by about 0.11.
I must conclude that the GPA my school reports to me is generated randomly.
How they actually tell me my GPA is thru a heavily compressed jpg served over HTTP on a district website, so I can easily imagine its actual value being made up.

In mathematics, a Lie group /ˈliː/ is a group that is also a differentiable manifold, with the property that the group operations are compatible with the smooth structure. Lie groups are named after Sophus Lie, who laid the foundations of the theory of continuous transformation groups. The term groupes de Lie first appeared in French in 1893 in the thesis of Lie’s student Arthur Tresse, page 3. Lie groups represent the best-developed theory of continuous symmetry of mathematical objects and structures, which makes them indispensable tools for many parts of contemporary mathematics, as well as for...

The chart of votes per month on SO shows the number of upvotes suddenly increased in April 2015, and this increase was mostly sustained since then. What was the reason?

@Shog9 Hey; do you have any insight on meta.mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/1688/…?
I've been hunting around on mse for similar discussions but haven't yet found anything accounting for that high of a discrepancy.
And looking at that user's publicly available data it's not really explained by, say, it being a month behind, or just last 30 days, or whatever. I can't find any reasonably month-related time span that yields close to 2591 rep for that user.
 
@JasonC caching?
 
@Braiam I initially thought so too but I can't find any 30-ish day interval in the past that gives close to 2591.
 
user315433
The tooltip of month tab says "2016-08-01 to today", so it shouldn't be any other kind of interval.

@JasonC It's the same number as given for the quarter, and the quarter includes all of July.
 
are you human, @zaq?
 
user315433
tlhIngan and SteveRacer are in the same situation, with equal amounts cited for "month" and "quarter".
 
@zaq Ran them off again? :P
 
@zaq Weird. Since 8/1 that user's only gotten 257 points. Their week tab is spot on. Their quarter tab is correct.
It's like the month tab didn't notice that august started. It's about right if you consider July 1st to today.
 
10:09 PM
@JasonC oh, I see the problem.
Per-period rep totals are cached per user
And - like your main rep - they normally just get incremented or decremented when you earn or lose rep.

Q: Something wrong with month user rep -some users show quarterly figures?

Glen_bThere seems to be a bug on some sites right now: e.g. http://stats.stackexchange.com/users?tab=Reputation&filter=month "month" tab says that it's the score from 2016-08-01 but some users show their rep from start of July onward. It's not like that for everyone. For example, my own months rep...

Same report, 7 days ago. Doesn't seem like coincidence. Maybe something is broken lately?
@Shog9 Oh so, some sort of big cumulative error?
 
@JasonC nope, more boring than that.
So, in the absence of a full rep recalc, those cached values gotta be reset every day / week / month.
There's a scheduled task that runs somewhere around UTC 00:00:00 every day that does this
Every day, it sets the daily value to 0
Every week, it sets the weekly value to 0
Every month, it sets the monthly value to 0...
...this month, it didn't run.
so the July totals just kept accumulating
 
Ahh
 
user315433
Or it ran for some users and not for others?
 
No, it didn't run for anyone on Mechanics
but, some things will trigger a full rep recalc, which will make it correct regardless
 
10:14 PM
Because somebody looked at the cron file in vim, couldn't figure out how to exit, and just mashed a bunch of keys and screwed up the reset?
 
For instance, if a post of yours gets deleted, that's a rep-recalc and now your monthly total will be correct.
 
Mechanics demand equal treatment.
The union is going to hear about this.
 
Ok, this is funny, the godaddy burnination request went featured again for no reason
@JasonC I will worry when is the drivers union
 
@Braiam Hmm, that's weird.
 
@Shog9 Does visiting /reputation trigger a recalc? Sorry, I'm a bit rusty with my SE skillz.

@JasonC no, only events
 
Oh, no more manual recalcs.
