There is a "top users" list that you see for each tag or etc. This also is used to give a "top n%" to the user on their developer page.

My question is since the next step in this league is "Top 1%", it's not apparent how far I am from that milestone.

So, is there a way I can perhaps see/estimate how much more score is needed to get into the "Top 1%" or "Top 5%" of a tag as of date?

EDIT: I found a way to get the # rank but figuring out the exact "top x%"

  • Since there is already a tag for developer-story on MSO, and no such tag here, I can't help but think that this question (as worded) is applicable to one site only; the Developer Story feature on Stack Overflow. – Rob Feb 16 at 18:54

According to How does "TOP 10%" work in the Developer Story?, this SEDE query calculates the top x% for any given user and tag. It says you're in the top 3% (see below); you'll have to fork the query to find out what score exactly is needed to get into the top 1%.

    You're welcome. FWIW, the direct link to the script is already in the body of the answer – those are two separate links in the first line. – Glorfindel Feb 16 at 17:13
  • Hi one question here, I do see that the query you shared shows that for the tag: machine-learning, my percentile is 3%, but on my developer page, it shows I am still top 10% and not top 5%. Is there a difference in this and what the query is calculating? – Akshay Sehgal Feb 16 at 17:35
  • Same is the case with neural-network tag and scikit-learn tag. – Akshay Sehgal Feb 16 at 17:38
  • Hmm ... typical. I'm not actually sure what the actual formula is (and whether it's known at all). Since the Developer Story is specific to Stack Overflow, the answer can likely be found there. – Glorfindel Feb 16 at 17:47
  • Great thanks for all your help! – Akshay Sehgal Feb 16 at 17:49
