What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have just started on Stack Overflow (and think it is great).

At what point does one's reputation get big enough to warrant putting a 'flair' link on their blog? Really what I am asking is what is a decent reputation to attain before linking to your Stack Overflow profile?

I would say when you get 10k+. It's really not that hard. I got it in 55 days. – NullUserException อ_อ Sep 23 '11 at 0:32

The average reputation of a user is around 500. So, unless you are proud of being below average, then I'd call that an absolute minimum.

I would say it doesn't matter. Displaying your flair indicates that you are a member of the community and it will get others to visit the site. I have had 900+ rep on Stack Overflow since I joined a year ago, and it has never affected whether I display flair or not.

I started showing my flair shortly after I joined SO, even though I only had a couple hundred rep. It's not my rep count that I'm proud of, it's the fact that I'm part of such a great community!

Really, I'm proud to be linking to SO. The more great people who discover SO, the better (for those people and for the overall SO community).

I agree with Ólafur. However, I don't consider a reputation under 2/3K decent enough to be proud of and to share it :)

If you're proud of your reputation. Then flair up!

Even if it's only 1 rep! – Randell Aug 29 '09 at 12:52
If that's what you're proud of.. for some strange reason. – Ólafur Waage Aug 29 '09 at 12:55
