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 am surprised to see that flairs of some people show total reputation in multiples of 1000 i.e 9867 will become 9.8k, and 45671 will become 45.6k while others will show just a plain number.

I like it the other way. How can I get that (X 1000 type) flair.. My flair page displays the one I need.. How do I get that for me ?

There are two kinds of flair". The per site flair, which shows only one SE site. And the summed flair which shows the summed reputation and badges of all SE sites (with 200 rep or more). The summed one shows the x1000 flair.

Flair for Meta:

profile for Gamecat at Meta Stack Overflow, Q&A for the Stack Exchange engine powering these sites

Flair for SE:

profile for Gamecat on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

How one can get that summed flair once they crossed 200 mark ? – aProgrammer Jul 4 '12 at 7:48
It is in your flair page if you have at least two accounts that are associated and 200 or more reputation. – Toon Krijthe Jul 4 '12 at 7:50
@anDroider you already got it: – Shadow Wizard Jul 4 '12 at 7:51
yes @ShaWizDowArd .. but that is never shown in my posts questions/ answers/ edits ? I really like that – aProgrammer Jul 4 '12 at 7:55
@anDroider It's meant for you to use it externally, show off in other places. You can also put it in your profile page in "about me" section if you like. :-) – Shadow Wizard Jul 4 '12 at 8:03

There's no way you can change this manually. Anytime your reputation is under 10000, it will show the actual number without modification. Once you hit 10000, it will start rounding the number to the nearest multiple of 100, creating numbers like 10k, 10.1k, 10.9k, etc. Once you hit 100000, it will start rounding to the nearest thousand, creating numbers like 100k.

These alternate values are only displayed in the user box attached to questions and answers and the network-wide flair image (which always abbreviates for the thousands, to make room for the badges). The profile page and per-site flair images always show the full reputation amount.
