I've only ever seen top 10%, 20% and 30% as the percentages for the user's "best" tags listed at the top of a Careers profiles.

Are better percentages possible? Is there any interest in adding top 5% or even 1% ranks?

Are better percentages possible?

No, Top 10% is the highest it goes. And by highest I of course mean lowest; 10% is the best percentage careers is capable of displaying.

On Careers 3.0 I hear it will go to 11%. – jadarnel27 Apr 4 '12 at 18:44
@jadarnel27 - gah, now I want to re-word it, but I don't want to kill your joke :) – Adam Rackis Apr 4 '12 at 18:50
Reword away, my joke did not take that much effort =) – jadarnel27 Apr 4 '12 at 18:55

I would like to see more detail than the top 10% implemented in Careers.

There is a contra argument to be made that membership of anything over the top 10% may be temporary, and I accept this - perhaps something like a "high water mark" could be displayed, together with a date?

I agree with this. Given the actual number of people who are actively participating, a seasoned SOer reading your profile will know that top 10% is very vague and does not indicate an achievement. – Tudor Sep 9 '12 at 6:24
