What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

In the user info, it would be nice to have plots marking for each question a little question mark and for each answer a little exclamation mark in the time-upvote plane, so that one can see at a single glance when someone has posted good questions or answers.

Note that this is different from the old reputation graph Eeeek! Where did the reputation graph go? which reported total reputation.

I suggest to provide a graph that shows for each question and answer a single mark ? or !, at the point in time (x-axis) where the question was asked or the answer was supplied, and with the net number of upvotes as height (y-axis). I'd like see all questions and answers in a single plot, with just one ? or ! mark in the time x votecount plane to summarize its value. This gives quite different and much more useful information.

If these marks are clickable and lead to the corresponding title and a link, this would be really useful!

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for active researchers, academics and students of physics.

    
My request is quite different from what the old reputation graph provided. See the edited question. –  Arnold Neumaier Mar 22 '12 at 11:50
    
You could get this mugrated to MSO if you wanted a quick answer... –  Manishearth Mar 23 '12 at 2:40
    
@dmckee: This is far too detailed. i want to see all questions and answers in a single plot, with just one ? or ! mark in the time x votecount plane to summarize its value. - Yes, migrating would be fine, but I don't know how to do that. –  Arnold Neumaier Mar 23 '12 at 11:00
    
@ArnoldNeumaier Just flag the post for mod attention and write "migrate please". Anyways, it's migrated now. –  Manishearth Mar 23 '12 at 15:54

@Manishearth: This plot conveys only a cumulative reputation number, which is far off from what i suggested above. –  Arnold Neumaier Mar 25 '12 at 18:31
    
I know, but it could be of some use. If that was the solution then I'd have posted it as an answer :) –  Manishearth Mar 25 '12 at 18:32
