The screenshot below is taken from a CRUDE message. What does the number 17.4k mean under the commentator?

enter image description here

My try:

I guess it would be the highest per se reputation. However, his/her main site user profile shows that he/she has reputation 14.8k < 17.4k.


Edit:

I would love to use myself as an example, but many messages in CRUDE has no reputation displayed. This time, I'm follow quid's advice and I use myself as an example.

    $\begingroup$ The badges are also mismatched. See chat.stackexchange.com/users/300394/xander-henderson $\endgroup$ – YuiTo Cheng Mar 4 at 11:13
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe it's the network-wide reputation? $\endgroup$ – YuiTo Cheng Mar 4 at 11:28
  • $\begingroup$ @YuiToCheng Thanks for comments. Nice catch for the badge mismatch! $\endgroup$ – GNUSupporter 8964民主女神 地下教會 Mar 4 at 11:47

    $\begingroup$ I find it slightly strange that somebody else is put on display here. You could just as well have used yourself as example. $\endgroup$ – quid Mar 4 at 12:11
  • $\begingroup$ @quid Please see my edit in response to your comment. I'll take your advice into consideration next time and consider my own account first as an example in [meta] discussion. $\endgroup$ – GNUSupporter 8964民主女神 地下教會 Mar 4 at 14:16

    $\begingroup$ I see. It seems only longer blocks where there is enough space get the points in addition. I never realized that. The chat profile displays it also chat.stackexchange.com/users/180155/gnusupporter-8964- But the existence of that might not be obvious either. $\endgroup$ – quid Mar 4 at 14:19

As has been said already, the rep score under any chat user is the network-wide reputation. Note that reputation from other Stack Exchange communities is included even if it is less than 200 rep. This applies to badges as well.

Perhaps this is obvious, but the stated rep score under a chat message does not change after the user earns more rep - it will be updated in their next post. And it will only be displayed if the message is over three lines long.

Thanks to the comments, I've realised that it's in fact the total network-wide reputation.
