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've created a simple windows taskbar application that checks a user's reputation on SO. The input is the user's url ( and notifies the user of changes in his reputation. Currently the tool only tracks reputation changes but I plan on adding additional notifications in the next versions.

Update: a new version is available (1.3) with proxy support - go get it now

Brilliant. Nice icon too – bugmagnet Oct 23 '08 at 7:05
Nice. Not sure if this is good for my OCD though :) – Gishu Oct 23 '08 at 8:00
this needs some OSX-love too, definitely... – Henrik Paul Oct 23 '08 at 8:51
are you still supporting this? Just tried it without success. – Kate Gregory Jun 17 '11 at 11:15
Unfortunately I didn't have time to properly work on this project. I was hoping to use the SO API for a new version and never got to it. If enough people demand it I'll revive the project... – Dror Helper Jun 19 '11 at 9:02
+1 on the demand here :D – Connell Watkins Nov 9 '11 at 12:40

Now only if this could answer questions too... I'd be cured. :D

Oh great, now I have no way to avoid feeding my Stack Overflow addiction! Even when the browser is closed I'm still gaining rep. Thanks for nothing ;)

Glad to help a fellow addict ;) – Dror Helper Nov 3 '08 at 6:33

It would be nice if we could also use Super User and Server Fault user pages instead of just Stack Overflow.

I will, I also need to fix the current functionality as well. Hopefully I'll have something working next week – Dror Helper Aug 25 '09 at 7:35

Doesn't accept my URL. I'm behind a proxy, maybe that's the cause. Would be great, if there were proxy settings.

I'll add proxy support in the next release – Dror Helper Nov 3 '08 at 6:32
Version 1.3 have proxy support - see if it solves your problem – Dror Helper Nov 9 '08 at 19:13

Looks pretty good, kudos for publishing the source code as well.
