Why do my reputation points & published ideas vary on different site versions?

Published ideas and reputation points are tied to a particular community (local site). In other words, you gain reputation points, based on the site version that was used to publish an idea in the first place. We don't merge reputation points which is why your profile stats may look different depending on the site version that you select. Note that this applies to reputation points only. All other stats (views, likes, ideas, followers, etc.) appear the same way regardless of the local site version. Please also note that other users can only see published ideas based on the selected language version of the site.
