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 would like to see my reputation changes in the StackExchange inbox as notifications. I have several accounts on different StackExchange sub-portals and it annous me to watch time by time if the reputation has changed at any of them.

I have to admit that I am little bit addicted to see my reputation changing..

High-rep users would have notifications all the time – juergen d Aug 10 '12 at 10:50
Not so long ago reputation wasn't updated in real time... I kinda miss that. – Yannis Aug 10 '12 at 10:53
@YannisRizos Me too. It might not be terrible to have your rep number at the top with a little indicator if there have been changes since your last visit, though. – JNK Aug 10 '12 at 20:16

Nice memories, I forgot this already. Now in present I see I have what I had in dreams since then. Hmmm.. I would questionize the amount of downvotes today.. – mico Jul 3 '14 at 22:24
are you overwhelmed with rep change notifications on the new top bar, as was stated? Or anyone with high rep? – mico Jul 3 '14 at 22:26
@mico I tended to leave them unread for a while — it's a bit annoying when the number of digits changes but otherwise it's just a green blur and fortunately the number of digits tapers off logarithmically. The really annoying thing is when I accidentally open the box after clicking the inbox and moving the mouse a bit too far right. Now I hide them:… – Gilles Jul 3 '14 at 22:30
@mico And yes, I am overwhelmed — I get far more achievements changes than inbox changes, and I don't care about them. – Gilles Jul 3 '14 at 22:32

No, please not; my inbox would be overrun with notifications.

Use one of the notifiers listed on instead, I use Newt myself (on Mac).

Does Newt still notify you of reputation changes? Mine stopped doing that a month or so ago (it still notifies of new questions though) – Clive Aug 10 '12 at 11:01
@Clive: It does. – Martijn Pieters Aug 10 '12 at 11:02
OK, time for a reinstall methinks. Thanks – Clive Aug 10 '12 at 11:02
I use SOStacked now on my iDevice and I am ok with that. – mico Oct 22 '13 at 10:01
