Why are only the first 50 tags shown in the accounts tab of a user? Why do you not use the menu as used for the answers?

same question for badges ... –  Matthieu Jul 16 '09 at 13:14

1 Answer 1

Once you've looked at the 50 tags that someone has been most prolific in, do the rest of the tags really make that much difference?

I've posted over 4400 answers, but by the time you get to my 50th tag you're looking at tags that I've only posted 30 answers in... are the rest of the outliers really interesting?

As for badges - my user account shows 52 different badges. I haven't checked whether that's all of them or not, but I suspect it is. My guess is that it just divides all the badges awarded into at most 5 columns, but doesn't limit them.

Thanks for the response... Yes, it could do a difference for example if the profile is used as references in a CV... Stackoverflow provides this features for the answers.. so.. –  Matthieu Jul 16 '09 at 13:43
    
You could always check with the data dump if it's absolutely crucial... but I'd say if a tag isn't in someone's "top 50" then it's probably not very important to them... –  Jon Skeet Jul 16 '09 at 14:04
