What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I like watching my progress at the Stack Exchange leagues. But is it possible to find my rank for a specific tag (C# for example)?

You can't find your rank, but you can find out how well you stack up against the highest in a tag.

http://stackoverflow.com/tags/<tagname>/topusers

It shows you at the bottom of the list (unless you're actually in the list) so you can compare to how much you need to improve to be on the list of top users.

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but it gives you the basics. Of course if you're competing with someone you'd have to do a little more research or share information with them or something.

I think the best you can do is use this data.SE query which currently puts you at 108 in the C# tag.

You can also use this query if you just want a single tag or see who the other users are below is the first 109 users in c#

+1 - but the query misses some tags –  donroby Nov 15 '11 at 20:49
    
@donroby I'll try and fix it if you tell me which tag and for which user? –  Some Helpful Commenter Nov 15 '11 at 21:00
    
For me (userid=220834) the tag "wicket" didn't show up. I'm the top answerer. On rerun, I also notice that it marks me as 1 for wicket-tester, where I'm only second-to-top. Might be an off-by-one. –  donroby Nov 15 '11 at 21:13
    
And to further the suspicion, using userid=342852, he shows 1 for wicket and doesn't show for wicket-tester. He's the top for wicket-tester and second (after moi) for wicket. –  donroby Nov 15 '11 at 21:19
    
@donroby I wasn't the author of the original query. Rather than figure out why it was broken I simply rewrote from scratch. It now work with the user ids you mentioned. Thanks –  Some Helpful Commenter Nov 15 '11 at 21:52
    
Good work! It looks sensible now. –  donroby Nov 15 '11 at 22:04
    
@SomeHelpfulCommenter I'm real late to the party and second query link (the list) is dead. Don't suppose you know where it is living these days? –  John Jul 16 '13 at 4:45
    
@John I updated the link. It was easier to recreate the query than to find it. –  Some Helpful Commenter Jul 16 '13 at 16:05
    
@SomeHelpfulCommenter Thanks appreciate it. Is the rank all time per tag, or is there a filter of some sort. The totals are smaller than I expected... –  John Jul 16 '13 at 19:11
    
Is it possible there is a bug in there somewhere? An example, on Graphic Design site, color-theory has a top score of 3, while I have a single answer with a score of 8. Also common tags like adobe-photoshop show no results at all. –  John Jul 16 '13 at 19:31
    
@john it's possible there's a bug. Can you post the url of the query you ran. –  Some Helpful Commenter Jul 17 '13 at 5:50
    
graphicdesign.stackexchange.com has a common tag 'adobe-photoshop'. Although I did discover per the answer above that this also gives the results I was after: http://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com//tags/adobe-photoshop/topusers –  John Jul 17 '13 at 12:51
    
@John It seems that Beta sites don't show up in data.stackexchange.com Perhaps you should upvote this –  Some Helpful Commenter Jul 17 '13 at 14:49
    
@SomeHelpfulCommenter vote added. It is strange that some tags like color-theory or typography return partial results... Thanks for the help. –  John Jul 17 '13 at 15:54
    
@John That's because you're querying the Stack Oveflow datadump. color-theory and typography are valid tags there. I'm sure if you tried it on Cooking it wouldn't be there. As a side note the query disappeared again. I don't know why. –  Some Helpful Commenter Jul 17 '13 at 20:17

I think the closest you'd get is the Top Users page for the tag.

You'll always be the 21st user listed. (Unless you're actually in the top 20)
