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

Wouldn't it be nice to check someone's reputation on ServerFault or SuperUser even if you're currently browsing StackOverflow?

So you could check, how active he/she is on other platform and browse his/her profile on the over there.

That's why I propose to implement a little badge in the profile page which shows the reputation on the other platforms.

A nice addon could be to see the reputation if you hover over link to user's profile right in a question.

So: What is your opinion about my proposal?

New experimental feature

more work coming on this.

Will this be available on SO/SF as well, or just MetaSO? – adrianbanks Jul 1 '09 at 11:45
Thumbs up to "experimental CNAME meta" ! :-) – Steve Schnepp Jul 2 '09 at 7:01

If you could add your flair bladge in the editable right box of your profile page, it would be just enough.

Right now, the iframe/script is rightfully stripped from the textarea.

This could be done with a custom tag, all the work being done safely in the SO/SF/MSO/SU engine. – Richard Jul 1 '09 at 11:02
That's exactly what I had in mind :-) – Steve Schnepp Jul 1 '09 at 11:07

I'm not sure how useful this would be.

While I have registered and answered a couple of questions over on ServerFault I'm not a sys admin so my rep is stuck resolutely at 101.

I will register and contribute on SuperUser - if nothing else I'm bound to have PC problems I need fixing at some point - but I'm sure my involvement level will be different again.

Will having 3 potentially wildly differing numbers tell you anything useful?

I think, they should be unified to one single reputation score which is the same on the different platforms.

Sure the topic's are really distinct. But does that really matter?

Yes, it does matter. – gnostradamus Sep 29 '09 at 19:27
I'm guessing this is going to be one of those perennial requests that will pop up for as long as the site exists... this is a bad idea. I am a programmer and a super user who happens to be required to run a server - hence why my SO and SU rep is higher than my SF rep. You do not want my programming cred to unduly lend trust (and tools) to my server account. ;) See numerous other questions related to this for more detailed reasoning than I can fit in a comment. – AnonJr Sep 29 '09 at 22:08
