When I look in my MVM&A profile it shows I have reached approximately 7000 users. When I look at my meta MVM&A profile it indicates I have reached 126,000 users. How is this number derived and why is my meta so much larger than my standard profile on the site?

  • I would just like to comment that what I've reached on the main site (as of this post) is 1.9m now ... what I've reached on Meta ... 1K ... I guess I'm disappointing in some areas! Dec 26, 2015 at 13:32

There was a post on the StackExchange blog that talked about the impact calculation.

I also found a slightly updated overview in a meta discussion over here.

I have to admit that seeing my impact measured in millions of people is both cool and terrifying. :-)

  • And I thought my measly 600k was something ... sheesh! Yes, cool and terrifying, lol '-) May 7, 2015 at 16:48
  • Yeah, it's a strange thing for sure. May 12, 2015 at 9:14
  • Say, do you have an updated link for this? The post you linked to is no longer there...
