As requested in this answer by Jeff, and discussed also in this question and this question, here is an attempt at a comprehensive list of more statistics to show on the user profile page.

Note that I'm not necessarily saying that all of these need to be included, but I was hoping to give a good overview of stats that have been requested so far. Maybe seeing lots of them in one place will inspire the developers to get some of them into production?

  • Accepted answer rate -- as shown on your questions
  • Answer acceptance rate -- how often your own answers are accepted
  • Number of accepted answers
  • Ratio of answers-to-questions -- how often this user helps others
  • Average question votes -- average score for all questions
  • Average answer votes -- average score for all answers
  • Upvote/downvote ratio -- is this user a sycophant or a malcontent
  • Upvote/downvote ratio on answers to your questions -- special case of above
  • Number of comments left
  • Number of edits made
  • Number of tags created
  • Consecutive days visited the site

I know from the previous discussions (linked above) some people will like some of these and find others useless. Thoughts?

I am almost certain that I had an answer or question about this at one point where I gave a bunch of those as potential stats to track. –  TheTXI Sep 4 '09 at 16:12
Very similar, except you were asking for rankings and I'm just asking for the data. I think lots of these stats are more innocuous if they are just on the profile page, if they were a basis for ranking it could rankle some folks (bad pun intended). –  ベレアー アダム Sep 4 '09 at 16:15
Oh I'm not saying they are dupes, just that I was looking at very similar tracking. –  TheTXI Sep 4 '09 at 16:17

I love statistics and rankings, so the more stats the better.
