I have 6 accounts in Stack Exchange, I can see the about page link in all sites, but not in Sports.SE.

Is there any reputation limit to show the about page link in the top menu bar?

  • It's only shown when your rep is below 10k on graduated sites and 2k on Beta sites. – Bart Jul 29 '13 at 13:59

    Will you just stop it with your facts and correctness @ShaWizDowArd. Very annoying. :) Yep, swapped sports and SO reputation when I made the comment. D'oh. – Bart Jul 29 '13 at 14:01
  • @ShaWizDowArd: It could be the numbers have been adjusted. It does look like a too-high-rep issue. Perhaps the cut-off for beta sites is now 1.5k? – Martijn Pieters Jul 29 '13 at 14:01

    @MartijnPieters that's what I thought as well, can't find any proof though. Think better tag this as a bug in the meanwhile? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 29 '13 at 14:08
  • I cannot reproduce this as a low rep user. I signed up at Sports.SE (I did not yet have an account there), and I see the About link in the title bar. I think you don't see it because you have more than 1500 points of reputation on a beta site. – Martijn Pieters Jul 29 '13 at 14:10

    @ShaWizDowArd: No, I can see the about link just fine. This is almost certainly a too-high-reputation issue. – Martijn Pieters Jul 29 '13 at 14:10
  • @MartijnPieters, do you have any beta account with 1.5k reputations? – Azik Jul 29 '13 at 14:15
  • @Azik: If I did I'd already have tested that. :-) – Martijn Pieters Jul 29 '13 at 14:17
  • @MartijnPieters, are you sure that this is a high rep score issue? Is this discussed or documented anywhere? – Azik Jul 29 '13 at 14:18

    @Azik: I am 99% sure, based on your scores and what I know from experience. – Martijn Pieters Jul 29 '13 at 14:20

The About page link will only be shown to the user when his/her reputation is less than 1500 on beta sites.

Today, I've passed 1500 reputations on Islam.SE beta site and I can't see the about page link.

  • I have less than 6k on Stack Overflow but I don't see the about page link. – Antony Aug 16 '13 at 9:20
  • then it will be 3 to 5k for graduated sites, I answered from the comment of @Bart – Azik Aug 16 '13 at 9:22
  • @Azik - Any reference for 3K on graduated sites? – hims056 Aug 16 '13 at 10:56
  • @hims056, it might be 3 to 5k as Antony's statement, I guess it as 3k(double of 1.5) ;) – Azik Aug 16 '13 at 10:59
  • @hims056, as the question is about beta site, the answer is correct. – Azik Aug 16 '13 at 10:59
  • @Azik - Can you see "about" on SO? – hims056 Aug 16 '13 at 11:00
  • @hims056, see the question, I can. – Azik Aug 16 '13 at 11:00
