What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

Is there any way to list users by reputation gained within the last x days/weeks? If not, could one be added?

Edit post-reading back/reading comments and realising I sound terrifyingly like a stalker:

I'm mostly interested because most SO users are way ahead of me, which makes the competitive aspects of SO a bit less fun. A daily reputation scoresheet would level the playing field somewhat.

You're a little bit too inquisitive, if you ask me. –  Ladybug Killer Nov 7 '09 at 16:55

How about breaking them down to geographical lcoations too? The timezone thingy as well, yea? –  o.k.w Nov 7 '09 at 17:06
    
Yeah, sorry, does the re-phrasing make it sound a bit less creepy? –  Dominic Rodger Nov 7 '09 at 18:05
    
I am collecting data daily that can be used to generate these types of statistics. The import was pretty spotty last month but when I have a reasonable set I will publish a view. –  Sky Sanders May 6 '10 at 1:40

Reputation leagues are now rolled out:

If competition is your thing, you can redefine the goalposts to make it more fun.

I joined SO near the beginning, but didn't really become active until about June. I decided to compete by tracking my page number every so often and see how it moved up. Even though my rep was low, I took satisfaction from seeing myself move from page 120, up to page 100, past page 50 and so on. I don't think I have ever hit the daily rep cap (so getting a badge for this would be really cool), but I've come close, and I definitely enjoy waking up to see my score higher ("I got rep in my sleep! I'm a super-hero!")

So I'd definitely get a kick out of seeing more stats, but the data dumps and stackql makes it so anyone can generate a lot of these stats ourselves.

That's exactly what I did. I started keeping track when I was on page 15 and managed to get halfway up page 2 before a change of job duties left me without enough time. –  mmyers Nov 8 '09 at 0:25

I suspect that a daily score-sheet would be a bit too volatile - and would also act slightly strangely due to different time zones (i.e. when people actually post vs the UTC day).

However, I'd be in favour of a weekly or monthly "league" - I'd find that interesting, certainly. It's been suggested before, however, and the tag stats were put in place partly as an alternative. I don't remember Jeff being particularly against it, but I don't think he was overly wild about the idea either. At the time, I think the overall leaders were much the same as the "recent history" leaders - but that may well have changed since the idea was originally suggested.

Jeff, care to run some tests and see whether it's actually any more interesting than just being a copy of the first page? (The "no tag" stats page gives the last month, so we can all see that. That only shows votes rather than rep though.)

+1 for the no-tag stats page. And 29,962 upvotes is simply mind-boggling. –  mmyers Nov 8 '09 at 0:28
    
You mean 30,717. –  Ether Nov 18 '09 at 7:49
