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

With the addition of careers and SO being used on CV's etc, it might be an idea to add a few things to a user's profile:

  • Quartile: e.g. foo is in the top 4% of SO users

This could actually be extended (maybe extra features unlocked either by reputation or possibly by payment) so that more analysis can be done:

  • foo is in the top 10% of responders in the C# tag
  • 75% of bar's questions have been tagged plzsendtehcodez

You might look at what does; I think they've setup a decent ranking system with nice visuals. Of course, given that they currently rank me just above Andrew Morton, I must admit they might have some issues with the ranking itself.

The top responders thing can be seen in the tag stats. The other stat can be simply queried from StackQL. I don't see much use for it personally.

It's true that you can see this stuff in the tag stats - I think that more detailed and available stats for non-programming SO users (i.e. recruitment consultants, prospective employers etc) is still a good idea – oxbow_lakes Oct 25 '09 at 12:40
