Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know that there's a way to list total user reputation on the Area51 site, but only among people committed to a particular Stack Exchange Network

For just the trilogy, there's the Stackathlon. – Matthew Read Sep 3 '11 at 23:35

You can use the list of chat users. (I'm 117th or so*! I feel special.)

There are 25130 Area51 users and 22529 chat users* at the time of posting. Most of these high-rep users you're looking for will have used one or both, I'm sure, since they're obviously dedicated to and informed about the network.

* Some of the chat users are dupes.

Do you know why some users are listed twice in the link? – user162697 Sep 3 '11 at 23:40
@Siva There have been some bugs resulting in duplicate chat users, see this for example. – Matthew Read Sep 3 '11 at 23:42

Following link provides the list of all top users across different SE sites.

Top users in each SE site

You still have to tabulate their reputation points to find the leader of all. Currently, the clear leader is Jon Skeet on Stack Overflow.

Thanks for the link. But it only lists their reputations specific to each site (not across all sites) – InquilineKea Sep 3 '11 at 23:26
As far as I know, I don't think there is a way for what you are trying to find out because the data for each site is hosted separately. Each user will have a different user id on different sites. I think Jon Skeet will still come on top. – user162697 Sep 3 '11 at 23:29
@Siva If you only consider people who have linked their accounts then it shouldn't be too hard. Just depends on what data is public, although one could build a scraper. – Matthew Read Sep 3 '11 at 23:34
@Matthew: Yes, that could be possible. That's why I mentioned as far as I know and I know very little. :-) – user162697 Sep 3 '11 at 23:36
