I would like to know how many reputation points I need to perform each possible task in Stack Overflow. Is there a publicly available page on Stack Overflow from where I can get this information?

  • It is a support question on Meta, so I would request the community not to downvote this post. Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:39
  • Just hover your mouse over your username on topbar. It will show you privileges link for particular site.

    This is something I initially struggled to find, hovering over a button to get a different response to clicking the button is not a natural response. Especially when the hover over doesn't happen immediately, its easy to click that button a hundred times without ever seeing the dropdown Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:46
  • @EASI exact reps required for each task is displayed on mouse hover. Other option is to click on each task. Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:51
  • @RichardTingle Now the new help center shows this link ("View a full list of privileges you can earn") on the main page. Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:52
  • @AzizShaikh Thats certainly an improvement then, weird that theres both a "Reputation and Privileges" and a "Privileges" section Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 12:55

Please click on the down arrow near your Name display. Then click on the Privileges link on the popped window.



Take a look at the privileges page, you can find the privileges page through the help center or by hovering your mouse over your name.

On the page itself you see a list of all the privileges you can earn and the progress of every privilege. When you click on a privilege you will see how much reputation is needed to require this privilege. Also you will get a full explanation what feautures you will gain when you get the required rep.
