Give the system some time to update for the activity you are doing... Sometimes the graphs will go up later just to see whether your deals and questions are voted positively for. Don't worry about your reputation and the leaderboard, if you stay active posting deals and questions fairly often (couple times a month) you will be in good shape!

Also may I add welcome to the community, here is a link to an FAQ of sorts that will help you out here on the deals side of woot.

There definitely is a lag factor, and in some cases, it's a matter of quality, not quantity, as well as timing.
