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

I noticed that user rep in tooltips for usernames in comments has been implemented. This is great, except that the tooltip doesn't provide any context as to what this number is. It is just a raw number. Maybe the tool tip could say "User's reputation: n"?

I know this is very minor; I'm just trying to mention it before "what is this number in the tooltip?" starts appearing on meta every week... :)

This would be good for the FAQ now that you have noted it :) – Brian Dec 18 '09 at 3:39
Consistent formatting (comma after thousands) would be good too. – An̲̳̳drew Dec 18 '09 at 5:25
@Andrew consistent formatting for you, maybe. For me, a dot is used after thousands, not a comma. – alex Dec 18 '09 at 7:16
@I hate haikus - so what shows up under Kip's name in his question? 8.881 or 8,881? The important thing is being consistent on the site I guess. – Dominic Rodger Dec 18 '09 at 7:55
It shows a comma. I agree, it should be consistent, and it should use a comma, just like everywhere else on the site. I was just pointing out that consistency in formatting is often relative, especially when it comes to numbers and dates. – alex Dec 18 '09 at 9:00
