Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

The URL for the (non-opensource) ads contains the token x-user-highrep.

http://ads.stackoverflow.com/a.aspx?Task=Click&ZoneID=4...&SiteID=1&RandomNumber=1390910444&Keywords=asp.net%2cencryption%2cx-user-highrep%2cx-user-registered

How much rep must one have to get that token?

On related notes:

  • What other special tags are there? (x-user-mod?)
  • If the question itself has the x-user-highrep tag, it will be there for all users. (I tried it)

I don't have x-user-highrep on serverfault (190 rep), but I do on stackoverflow (10.5k).. so it's somewhere between those two numbers. – Blorgbeard Jul 13 '10 at 17:46
    
How high? So High! – Rosinante Jul 14 '10 at 1:47

There was that telerik ad that was only shown to 10k plus users a while back, so it could be that.

ding, winner! :) – Jeff Atwood Jul 14 '10 at 2:08

Sounds like it might be the 200 rep (I think) that triggers the reduced advertising.

EDIT: No, it's not. See Jeff's comment.

if that was the case, it wouldn't be visible or served – Jeff Atwood Jul 14 '10 at 2:08
