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

Currently, my completeness score on my SO careers profile is incorrect, because of the personal statement. I have filled out a personal statement, which is over 400 characters, as the objective states, and yet it still shows a 0/20.Bug Image

If I copy and paste my personal statement, directly from my profile, it turns out to be:Word Count Pic

Is this already a known issue, or is this a new problem? I could not find anything about this, searching both meta SE and doing a google search, but this is had no hits that matched well.

The "Personal Statement" appears at the top of the profile. Yours is empty at the moment. The field you do have populated is actually the "Background" field.

You can add a Personal Statement by editing your profile and looking for the "Start one now" link toward the top. It'll appear as follows: screenshot of top of profile page, showing the explanatory text for Personal Statement field

Thank you! I feel a bit stupid, but this completely clears up the problem :) – Pip May 13 '14 at 20:57
No problem. It's fair to say that's not the clearest part of the interface :) – Mike May 13 '14 at 21:24
