Right now I am confused with the fact that I have 237 points or reputations I am seeing at the top right of the Database Administrators forum, but in YOUR COMMUNITIES list it says 172.
I am just guessing but it seems to me this is a caching issue. The recent move to double the reward for questions means for you that your reputation on this site should increase by 65 points, based on the number of your questions and their current score. That is exactly the difference between the numbers 172 and 237 that you are (were) observing. I suspect the numbers in the Your Community list are fetched from a separate storage that is updated on a schedule, while the actual rep that you can see in the top bar is meant to update immediately. By this point I would expect the numbers to be identical.
