This is pretty innocuous, and I'm more asking out of curiosity, but I seem to have more reputation for the year than I have reputation total. Specifically at the time of this posting, 6012 total and 6032 for the year.

Month-by-month, I gained 15 reputation for the year over my total in January, 3 more in February, and 2 more in March.

  • Also, you joined this site this year (in 2014), so there are no weird boundary cases around Jan 1. Commented May 5, 2014 at 22:27
  • I'm guessing deleted posts are to blame somehow

Answer can be found here - downvotes and deleted posts are not counted in your monthly (and I assume yearly) score, but are factored in to the displayed total score.
