What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Is there an easy way to find out what your user rank is? If not it would be nice to have that feature.

I can go to the users tab and find out what page I am on (96) and multiply that by 35 (users per page) and then subtract my location on the page (12) to get my user rank (3,348)

Not that rank is that important, but it is fun to know. Is there an easier way or if not can a way be made?

There are 35 users per page. –  Lance Roberts Feb 1 '10 at 17:46

I always thought it would be nice to have as a percentile (i.e. top 0.12% of users). –  Robert Cartaino Feb 1 '10 at 17:57

@Robert that wouldn't be that useful. As there are a lot of users with 1 rep point, and they occasionally get culled after they have been inactive for a given amount of time. –  Brad Gilbert Feb 1 '10 at 19:28

If you are ranked high enough you will appear in this list:

http://so.chrisballance.com/

It shows the top 1,015. You have to be above 7,943 rep to be in that list.

Cool site. I guess I need to get more req so I can get on that list. –  Vaccano Feb 1 '10 at 17:35
    
@Vaccano Yeah, you will have to work a bit harder if you want a really easy way to track your rank. –  jjnguy Feb 1 '10 at 17:37

Actually, the correct formula is users per page * (pagenum-1) + position: 35 * (96-1) + 12 = 3337.

Thanks. Sure would be nice to not have to do the math myself though.... –  Vaccano Feb 1 '10 at 17:34
    
@Æther: AFAIK, unregistered users are not listed in the default order by reputation view. This can skew the result a little bit--especially for low rep users. –  LeakyCode Feb 1 '10 at 18:09

It's easier when your on the front page ;-) –  Ivo Flipse Feb 1 '10 at 18:24
    
@Fearless/Mehrdad: hmm, I wonder how far up the rep list you have to go to find the top unregistered user. I can't recall seeing an "unknown" higher than ~300. –  Ether Feb 2 '10 at 7:50
    
@Æther: I think you can change your display name even if you are unregistered (= cookie account). I believe, as you said, most accounts that matter are registered. Just wanted to point out this not obvious fact. –  LeakyCode Feb 2 '10 at 11:27

Another different view of the user rankings is here: http://hewgill.com/~greg/stackoverflow/users/

Currently I've only run the query for users with >10k reputation. But it shows a lot more stats (and per-tag for each user, too) than just reputation.

How's your answer accept rate?

Very nice! Holding steady at 68. It's been a long time since I was on the front page. –  Adam Davis Mar 25 '10 at 3:10
