# Why is reputation change more than total reputation?

Could not find info on this anywhere:

following a notification I went to a link where one sees: $$\begin{array}{ccc} +1206& 1,008& 861\\ \textrm{change}&\textrm{total reputation}&\textrm{year reputation} \end{array}$$

How is this calculated? Seemingly it implies my reputation was around -200 at some point??

• The first number is a change in the ranking (that is, you moved 1206 positions up). The change of reputation points as such is in fact the last column. – Emil Jeřábek supports Monica May 14 '14 at 9:07
