How do I know my rank among all Stack Overflow users?

Where can I see a list of top users according to their rank on Stack Overflow?

@JamesAllardice: your rank is #392. –  JAVAGeek Jun 28 '12 at 12:03
    
And you are #51260 –  Shadow Wizard Jun 28 '12 at 12:03
    
@ShaWizDowArd: that's not mine, I am not able to see my rank :( –  JAVAGeek Jun 28 '12 at 12:04

@JAVAGeek. Read this –  user173320 Jun 28 '12 at 12:07
    
Your meta profile is not associated with your SO profile, so we can't see for ourselves. Can you give us a link to your profile on SO? –  Ernest Friedman-Hill Jun 28 '12 at 12:08
    
@ErnestFriedman-Hill. But it does... read my answer. –  user173320 Jun 28 '12 at 12:09
    
@ShaWizDowArd. Where did you get this number from? he's not ranked at all! –  user173320 Jun 28 '12 at 12:12
    
@gdoron -- indeed, although I thought from his comment above that he meant the "JAVAGeek" account on SO is not him, since the accounts aren't associated. But duh, they have the same gravatar. –  Ernest Friedman-Hill Jun 28 '12 at 12:12
    
    
Ooops! I saw user with same name - sorry. ( @gdoron ) –  Shadow Wizard Jun 28 '12 at 12:24
    
What's the purpose behind your last (and wrong) edit? –  hims056 Jul 20 '13 at 10:17
    
@hims056 i thought website is stackoverflow and not stack overflow. –  JAVAGeek Jul 20 '13 at 10:20
    
@JAVAGeek - CrisF edited it. Didn't you see that? Stack Overflow is standard name. Don't mix both words. –  hims056 Jul 20 '13 at 10:23

Your current reputation at Stack Overflow is 155
You can't see your rank because:

  • users with less than 200 reputation are not tracked in the leagues

When you pass 200 points you can see your rank here:

Now i can't even upvote your answer because it requires 15 rep and mine is only 9 on meta –  JAVAGeek Jun 28 '12 at 12:12
    
@JAVAGeek. Well... It's not that important, anyway getting 6 points isn't that hard. :) –  user173320 Jun 28 '12 at 12:13
    
Nice! I wonder what determines inner ranking when the reputation score is the same? For example, why this one is one before last and this one is last? :) –  Shadow Wizard Jun 28 '12 at 12:27
    
@ShaWizDowArd. The amazing coincidental of random...? Just like with every sorting, the one you got first from the DB is before the later unless they have higher rank. I can't think of other option. –  user173320 Jun 28 '12 at 13:34
    
It is not showing mine reputation. It is 340. stackoverflow.com/users/2286243/varunagw –  VarunAgw Jul 20 '13 at 12:44

You will need to pass the 200 reputation mark before your reputation is comparable to the likes of the Skeet and co.

If you go to your profile page (click your username in the top nav) and click the link displayed in the image below:enter image description here

If you want to access it quickly now, you can use this link. But for future reference use the highlighted method above.

have you exposed your personal details on purpose? –  user221081 Mar 7 at 8:42
    
I don't mind people knowing my email address and real name. –  ThePower Jul 15 at 7:40

To find your percentile rank amongst all Stackoverflow users with rep over 200 (which I find to be the most interesting figure), go to

http://stackexchange.com/leagues/1/alltime/stackoverflow

and note your rank. Then look at the total reputation table, and note the number of users with rep at 200+. Then calculate, for example in Python:

def my_percentile_rank(my_rank, users):
    my_percentile = int((1-my_rank/float(users))*100)
    print('My rank is in the {0} percentile'.format(my_percentile))    
    return my_percentile

my_rank = 20927 # on 3/3/2014
users = 168795

my_percentile_rank(my_rank, users)

Which prints for me,

My rank is in the 87 percentile

And if you have a goal for your percentile, find the 99th percentile cutoff (currently the 99th percentile reputation is 24,531, and the cutoff is rank ~1687. )

percentile = users * .01

And your current reputation target is, based on your desired percentile:

my_target_percentile = 90
my_reputation_target_rank = (100 - my_target_percentile)*percentile

So my target rank to be in the 90th percentile is 16879.5

A convenience function to show multiple ranks required:

def target_ranks(users, ps=None):
    percentile = users * .01
    if ps == None:
        ps = 25, 50, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99
    import pprint
    results = dict((p, (100-p) * percentile) for p in ps)
    print('the rank (not rep) required for percentiles:')
    pprint.pprint(results)
    return results

To quickly find where the 16879.5 ranking is, skip to find the user with the one percentile ranking and their reputation (currently the 34th page in, I got there by browsing in a few pages and then editing the url).

Multiply that page number (including the decimal fraction for how far down the page) by the number of percentiles below 100 to quickly find page with the rep for the ranking you desire. so (34.5-1) * 10 is 335 pages in (but I have to browse over to 338).

And I find that the cutoff for my target percentile is currently 3,569.

Since everyone's rep is constantly growing and StackOveflow is getting new users over our 200 cutoff, that's a moving target, so I need to aim beyond that, probably setting a mental goal of 4000 rep points so I can safely say I'm in the 90th percentile of users with rep over 200.

haha such an overkill but yeah +1 ;) –  user221081 Mar 7 at 8:41
    
@mehow I keep referring back to it, because it makes the calculating so easy, 89th percentile now! :) –  Aaron Hall Mar 7 at 15:13
    
I beat 3500, but now the 90th %ile is at 3572... well, 89th percentile is good! :) –  Aaron Hall Mar 10 at 3:47
    
Just hit 3584! I'm in the top 10% of 200+ rep users! –  Aaron Hall Mar 10 at 15:57
    
3571 is the 90th percentile mark now, 95th percentile is 6621 rep –  Aaron Hall Mar 12 at 3:41
    
92nd%ile at 4445! –  Aaron Hall Mar 21 at 15:16
    
Current 95th %ile of 200+ rep users is rank 8669 and rep 6626. I'm currently at rank 12753 and rep 4786, at about 92.6%, still in 92nd %ile. –  Aaron Hall Mar 31 at 18:25
    
Just hit 5000, taking a bit of a break from obsessively interacting with the site, after hitting 200+ in one day. I have a wife, a job, and a cat, and I'm putting more time into technology training. Maybe I'll show up for a few hours here and there, but not right now. –  Aaron Hall May 14 at 3:20
    
Just hit 6576, 70 rep shy of the 95th percentile (currently 6646)... Nice. I'll tweet when I hit it, maybe late tonight or tomorrow. –  Aaron Hall Jun 18 at 14:26
    
Just hit 6659. 95th %ile! Tweeting! –  Aaron Hall Jun 19 at 18:26
    
still at 95th percentile at 7190 rep, 96th percentile is currently 8108 rep, so maybe I'll shoot for that. Maybe then 97th, 98th, 99th... nah, probably not. –  Aaron Hall Jul 13 at 14:10
    
right now, these percentiles apply to the following ranks: 96: 7521.6, 97: 5641.2, 98: 3760.8, 99: 1880.4 and their respective reps are currently: 96: 8,108, 97: 10,428, 98: 14,625, 99: 24,660. –  Aaron Hall Jul 13 at 15:11

The Stack Exchange leagues page allows you to see all users, sorted by reputation over various time periods (week, month, quarter, year and all time), with your own profile placed nicely at the top. For example, if I select "All Time", I currently see this:

enter image description here

You can see the lists for all sites in the Stack Exchange network.

Note that it also notes on that page:

users with less than 200 reputation are not tracked in the leagues

That's why you are not able to see yourself in the list yet.

Strange.. i can't see my profile on top. –  JAVAGeek Jun 28 '12 at 12:07
    
I've edited my answer. It says on the page that "users with less than 200 reputation are not tracked in the leagues". –  James Allardice Jun 28 '12 at 12:08
    
ohh.. that's the reason.. –  JAVAGeek Jun 28 '12 at 12:09
    
@JamesAllardice It is not showing mine reputation. It is 340. stackoverflow.com/users/2286243/varunagw –  VarunAgw Jul 20 '13 at 12:45
