The URL for the (non-opensource) ads contains the token x-user-highrep.


How much rep must one have to get that token?

On related notes:

  • What other special tags are there? (x-user-mod?)
  • If the question itself has the x-user-highrep tag, it will be there for all users. (I tried it)
  • I don't have x-user-highrep on serverfault (190 rep), but I do on stackoverflow (10.5k).. so it's somewhere between those two numbers.

There was that telerik ad that was only shown to 10k plus users a while back, so it could be that.

Sounds like it might be the 200 rep (I think) that triggers the reduced advertising.

EDIT: No, it's not. See Jeff's comment.
