Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Am I seeing this right? I noticed a small thing above my reputation gains saying top %... this week/month, and when I clicked on the link I seen this to the side:

Total Reputation

Total Rep |Users
100,000+  |55
50,000+   |192
25,000+   |591
10,000+   |2,186
5,000+    |4,379
3,000+    |6,781
2,000+    |9,029
1,000+    |13,693
500+      |18,610
200+      |23,397
1+        |1,027,980

So if you have over 5K in reputation on SO your one of only less than five thousand people total in the world who has that much reputation?

p.s +1 for my fancy table! :P – Kirsty White Apr 18 '12 at 1:18

Not quite. That table represents only those who have earned reputation this week.

You have to look at the all-time list, which has slightly more—5,141:

Total Rep*    Users
--------------------
100,000+        55
50,000+        192
25,000+        598
10,000+       2,304
5,000+        5,141
3,000+        9,025
2,000+       13,644
1,000+       26,081
500+         45,871
200+         76,612
1+          927,370

You can see the exact cut off here http://stackexchange.com/leagues/1/alltime/stackoverflow/2008-07-31?sort=reputationchange&page=103&pagesize=50

Hmm. What cut-off is that link showing? Everybody I see there has ~13,000 reputation, not >5,000. – Cody Gray Apr 18 '12 at 1:35
    
I don't know what to tell you. Its supposed to be the 103 page of the all time list sorted by total rep with 50 users per page – Some Helpful Commenter Apr 18 '12 at 2:19
    
Ah, I was only showing 15 per page. I guess it remembers your last-used setting. Fixed the link. – Cody Gray Apr 18 '12 at 2:27
