3 Added case

I just came across a question by a new contributor to a Stack (in this case, SF & Fantasy), as indicated by the new contributor indicator. Since it was an ID request, I launched into a comment linking to our guide on asking ID requests and was about to invite them on the [tour], when I checked their network accounts and found that they had 17k+ rep on Stack Overflow.

Now I know that not everyone will welcome new contributors like that, but still, it would be useful to have an indication if a new contributor is new to Stack Exchange and may not even realise they can edit their own posts (yes, I've encountered those; self-answering just to add new information), or merely new to the current Stack and may only need a couple of pointers on topicality and tagging conventions. Likewise, someone may be a regular on the main Stack, but new to meta.

So please, expand the new contributor indicator to indicate if a user is new to the current Stack, new to the current Meta, new to Meta in general, or new to the Stack Exchange Network.


I realise that a reputation of 101 may indicate a user having received the association bonus, so they may have some experience elsewhere on the Stack Exchange Network. However, that doesn't tell me if they're 200+ on their highest reputation account, or 20k+. The former may still need some help using basic features while the latter doesn't.


I came across a request to indicate if someone is new to meta. That sounds useful as well, so I've edited my question to incorporate that request.
