Due to recent feature-additions to SO, I've decided to change this script a bit. Stack Overflow will now communicate a users reputation within comments when you hover over their name. I have modified this script to extract that data, and present it beside the name.

Download Source:


This script merely loads the users rep into the visible space to the right of their name.

    Looks good, but maybe do a quick check to see if the users rep is already on the page before making the request, just to be kinder to the server :) – Ian Elliott Jul 30 '09 at 15:54
  • @Ian, Yeah. That's the plan as I mentioned in my ways to improve section. – Sampson Jul 30 '09 at 15:57
  • Really don't think the badges are necessary. I removed them in my version. – jjnguy Jul 30 '09 at 16:03

    I'm not using that Greasemonkey script, but the new tooltip from Jeff's answer calls for adjusting the script to get that value from the HTML source then, rather than poking the server for it? – Arjan Feb 5 '10 at 11:44

    Shouldn't you work for SO already? – juan Feb 5 '10 at 13:29
  • this only shows zeros next to each user for me – Tobias Kienzler Jul 7 '10 at 12:22

not quite the same, but close: the reputation is available on mouseover.
