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'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
