In this post a user wrote a tool to gather data about the reputation of users. I'd be interested to see an "official" distribution of reputation. Even better, it would be great to have a feature that showed you your rank amongst other Stack Overflow members. Any chance this could happen?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Here's a histogram of users by reputation (decilog scale on X axis):
I'll add this graph to the Stack Overflow stats graphs which gets updated on each data dump.
Greg Hewgill's Stack Overflow Statistics are nothing short of amazing. I agree that adapting the user reputation histogram to show each user where he or she is would be a more interesting way to show progress than simply "top 5% this quarter" or "top 4% this month." For style points, it would be cool if you could zoom into and out of the histogram, centered around the neighborhood of your own reputation.
