I think that the threshold of user hover-boxes should appear in the privileges page as it is a privilege.


I agree. If reduced advertising is there, the user card should also be.

It is where people will look for it, and adding it will prevent a lot of questions or confusion.

Further research reveals it is already on the Established User page, which a somewhat good place as long as it is displayed at 1000 reputation.


I do not think so. This is not a privilege, it is a customisation bonus. Privileges relates to actions that impacts the community (open/close up/down votes, protect question, moderator tools, flag, ...). Profile does not.

Reduced advertising defies this statement. But this is a huge improvement in the user experience on the stacks sites. I think user cards does not deserves such a highlight.

    Reduced advertising, which is my way of saying you're rationalizing. It does make sense to add the user card to that list - it is where people will look for it, and it will prevent a lot of questions. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 8:50
  • @Kobi to be noted that reduce ads is not a privilege in sites outside the trilogy (Did not check all, but Information Security, Arqade does not have it). But it's indeed an exception to my remark. :( – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 8:57

    That's a good counterpoint! excellent argument we're having here. Maybe it belongs in the Established User page? It does mean hiding it a little... – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 9:00
  • It's in the established user page! – apscience Sep 7 '11 at 9:52
  • So it is! I never read anything. Maybe I'll add it to my answer. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 9:54
  • @Kobi seems the privileges pages are wiki pages :P (I can see it on meta, but not on gaming... need more rep I guess) – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 9:57
  • @M'vy - What do you mean? You can edit privileges pages on some sites, but can't see them on other sites? remarkable! – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 10:02
  • @Kobi I mean I have an edit/history link for privileges pages like meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges/established-user (on meta), but not on gaming. – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 10:14
  • @M'vy - Ohhh... That's sort of nice. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 10:23
