I've created a simple windows taskbar application that checks a user's reputation on SO. The input is the user's url (http://stackoverflow.com/users/...) and notifies the user of changes in his reputation. Currently the tool only tracks reputation changes but I plan on adding additional notifications in the next versions.

Update: a new version is available (1.3) with proxy support - go get it now

    this needs some OSX-love too, definitely... – Henrik Paul Oct 23 '08 at 8:51
  • are you still supporting this? Just tried it without success. – Kate Gregory Jun 17 '11 at 11:15
  • Unfortunately I didn't have time to properly work on this project. I was hoping to use the SO API for a new version and never got to it. If enough people demand it I'll revive the project... – Dror Helper Jun 19 '11 at 9:02
  • +1 on the demand here :D – Connell Nov 9 '11 at 12:40

Now only if this could answer questions too... I'd be cured. :D


Oh great, now I have no way to avoid feeding my Stack Overflow addiction! Even when the browser is closed I'm still gaining rep. Thanks for nothing ;)

  • Glad to help a fellow addict ;) – Dror Helper Nov 3 '08 at 6:33

It would be nice if we could also use Super User and Server Fault user pages instead of just Stack Overflow.

  • I will, I also need to fix the current functionality as well. Hopefully I'll have something working next week – Dror Helper Aug 25 '09 at 7:35

Doesn't accept my URL. I'm behind a proxy, maybe that's the cause. Would be great, if there were proxy settings.

  • I'll add proxy support in the next release – Dror Helper Nov 3 '08 at 6:32
  • Version 1.3 have proxy support - see if it solves your problem – Dror Helper Nov 9 '08 at 19:13

Looks pretty good, kudos for publishing the source code as well.

  • Thanks - hope it helps – Dror Helper Oct 27 '08 at 8:43
