Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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 know the answer on the below questions.

  1. How can I determine who has the highest reputation in a single day?

  2. Who has scored highest reputation in a single day in history?

  3. I know that we can see reputation leader of week/month/quarter/year/all time in Reputation Leagues. Why can we not see the leader of single day?

  4. Why they have make the search feature like this?

I know about Data Explorer. I don't want to use it. Is there any possible way without using it?

The Data Explorer is your friend. – ChrisF Jan 7 '13 at 11:45
How up to date do you want this? – Donal Fellows Jan 7 '13 at 11:45
I want to know how can i achieve this? is there any way without DdataExplorer? – Bhavesh Jan 7 '13 at 11:47
Why don't you want to use Data. SE? That's what it's for... – Lix Jan 7 '13 at 11:51
You can only get a maximum of 200 reputation in a single day. Therefore the answer is: Lots of people get highest reputation in a single day. (Unless bounty awards get handled differently, I'm not sure). – JonW Jan 7 '13 at 11:58
@JonW No, you can get much more. Question accept (15 rep points) are for example immune from the rep cap. – Denys Séguret Jan 7 '13 at 12:05
I think I've got 335 in one day... 20 upvotes and 9 accepts - but no bounties on top - so I could imagine, a 1000 is perfectly plausible if a couple of bounties fell on the same day... – Jon Clements Jan 7 '13 at 12:06
@NullPointer: Ah I see, so in that case the answer to OPs questions are - 1)Look at Jon Skeets history. 2)Jon Skeet 3)Jon Skeet recursive 4)just go to Jon Skeet's profile. – JonW Jan 7 '13 at 12:15
I've once reached 947 in a single day on SO. I however recall having seen someone going over 1K with 2 high-rep bounties awarded the same day. Not sure who it was. Something with "Gomez" in the name? And here on meta.SO, due to some bug I've a (incorrect) peak of 1154 in my graph :( – BalusC Jan 7 '13 at 12:18
OP, can you explain why you "don't want to use" the data explorer ? – Denys Séguret Jan 7 '13 at 12:20
@Chichiray: that would be MrGomez, 1225 in a single day. – Mat Jan 7 '13 at 12:24
Yes, that was him :) He went really on a bounty spree that period. – BalusC Jan 7 '13 at 12:26
I think my highest in a day without bounties is 650 (September 28th 2011). I believe others have done better, very occasionally. Including bounties, my highest is 870 (so far lower than MrGomez). – Jon Skeet Jan 7 '13 at 12:52
@JonSkeet - But your average is just awesome and unbeatable. :( – hims056 Jan 7 '13 at 12:53
@hims056: It certainly helps that the last time I didn't hit the rep cap was June 2010 :) – Jon Skeet Jan 7 '13 at 12:57

I don't think this is achievable from anywhere.

  1. There is no such option either in Stack Overflow or in Reputation League
  2. There is no table for Reputation in Data Explorer (IMO it's not public).

We can't see daily reputation leader but we can see reputation leader of week/month/quarter/year/all time in Reputation League

@him056: thats exactly i am talking about. why they have make it like this? if we are able to know leader of week/month/year than why dnt of single day? i knew what you have written as answer. – Bhavesh Jan 7 '13 at 12:02
@Bhavesh - Why don't of single day? because of time difference in all over the world. – hims056 Jan 7 '13 at 12:05
@hims056 yes, a day is a day from UTC on SO - not a 24 hour shifting period... – Jon Clements Jan 7 '13 at 12:08
@hims056: sory but i do not agree with you fully. cz if that would be problem then it would also be hurdle for week/month/year. – Bhavesh Jan 7 '13 at 12:08
You can get reputation (aggregate) from the data explorer, but not in the way you'd need to do a query for this. – Tim Post Jan 7 '13 at 12:22
@TimPost - To do a query we need a table where we can separate reputation somehow. Also, we don't get nagetive reputation (for downvoting) of any user. – hims056 Jan 7 '13 at 12:46
