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 often come to Stack Overflow to find that my reputation score has changed. I want to know what it was that made my rep go up (or down). There is the rep graph on my profile page, but this only shows me the total rep gain and total rep loss for a question/answer. This is great if I remember how much rep I had gained/lost on all of my questions/answers previously... but I don't know. Could we see how much rep we gained/lost in a given time period from what questions/answers? Seeing that I gained 40 rep from an answer is good. Seeing that I gained 10 today, 20 yesterday, and 10 a week ago is better.

Click the envelope next to your name, then go to the reputation tab. Edit dates in URL to taste or use links on page to specify time.

Actually that is exactly what I was looking for. Didn't even know it was there. Thanks. – baudtack Jul 1 '09 at 23:09

I use my own reputation tracker. I've got it set up to let you easily see what's happened today or what happened yesterday - I find this a bit simpler than going into the version on Stack Overflow (and it predates it).

Internally there are options to show several days or a specific date, but I've currently hidden them to avoid the SO server getting overloaded with JSON requests :)

The important point (for those interested in rep) is that both of these treat a day as a UTC day - in other words, the same period as the rep cap.

don't you LIVE in UTC? So you're a dirty timezone cheater! – Jeff Atwood Jul 1 '09 at 6:37
Technically, we're BST (GMT+1) at the moment ;-p – Marc Gravell Jul 1 '09 at 6:57
Or "Europe/London" as I prefer to unambiguously call it :) – Jon Skeet Jul 1 '09 at 7:09
You found his secret, Jeff! He has such a high rep, because he is a UTCer. Change SO timezone to New Zealand and he is lost ;-) – Ladybug Killer Jul 1 '09 at 7:20
Yup. Think it's a coincidence that the two top rep scorers are in the UK? Conspiracy! – Jon Skeet Jul 1 '09 at 8:23
modos is better{user number here} – Won't Jul 1 '09 at 13:07
@Will: It depends what you're after. The modos tracker doesn't easily tell me what's happened for the whole of today, which is important in terms of caps etc. Each to their own - variety is good :) – Jon Skeet Jul 1 '09 at 14:04
I'm a huge fan of Jon's rep tracker. It's better than SO's which is very crappy in my opinion. – xmm0 Jul 3 '09 at 3:19

You can select a period in the graph to the left of the reputation summary to only see your changes for that period. Either drag with your mouse, or use the entry boxes below the graph.
