What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I am a member of Stack Overflow.

Please let me know about:

  1. Will it be legal If I want to show my reputation score to my employer?
  2. If it is legal, is there a way which I can generate report from Stack Overflow about my reputation like a certificate?

If anyone know about that, please let me get suggestion.

The best way to prove it's your profile is to put some personal info in it - your real name, your E-Mail address, a URL.... –  Pëkka Jan 23 '12 at 9:24

@Pekka'sOrganicRepFarm Yup; and also, cross-link to your profile here from other profiles/sites that someone will know are also you. For example; my SO, Facebook, and blog profiles all link to each other. –  Andrew's a Unitato Jan 23 '12 at 9:27

Of course it's legal to show anyone you want your profile, reputation, badges, etc.

As far as 'generating a report', I'm not being a smartass, but here's yours: http://stackoverflow.com/users/900284/frank That is, it's the link to your profile.

If you are looking for a way for Stack Overflow to certify that you are you, and your profile is yours; that's not going to happen. Stack Overflow does not have (and does not want) the necessary information about you to do that.

Thank for your answer @AndrewBarber , What I really want to do is print my reputation like a certificate document style. But by using this link myProfile could only display me like a web page style. Please give me suggestion again. –  Frank Myat Thu Jan 23 '12 at 9:29
    
@Frank Ummm... I'm sure that's not something Stack Exchange is going to do for you. I'm also fairly sure that there isn't any point whatsoever to doing it. If you wanted to create some fake certificate yourself... I would advise against it, but you're on your own if that's what you want. –  Andrew's a Unitato Jan 23 '12 at 9:33
    
thank for your suggestion @AndrewBarber. –  Frank Myat Thu Jan 23 '12 at 9:35

Your profile is publicly accessible: http://stackoverflow.com/users/900284/frank

You can share that with anyone you like. To check out what other people can see, log out and click the url.

You can also use the API, to generate the report "certificate" you want. But, what exactly would that be?
