My profile on careers show that I am Top 10% on the tag.

While I might have answered a few questions (well, not that much: only 15) that were tagged as , I know almost nothing of it -- and I am absolutely not looking for any kind of related job.

I have tried setting that tag as a disliked one ; but it still appears in the Top 10% list.

Would it be possible to exclude some tags from the Top X% lists ?
Either by setting them as disliked, or by another mean ?

Here's a screenshot of the top of my profile, in public view, that shows what I'm posting about :

    Wow. After looking at your profile, that "Top 10%" seems like it must be nearly meaningless. Multiple people have more points in that tag in the last 30 days than you do overall. What's even the point?

  • Yeah, that tag, in my case, is a perfect example of how "top 10%" can be wrong ^^ ; I suppose it's due to the fact that some of my answers have gotten quite a few upvotes (but my answers were generally not specific to asp.net, and would have been true for any other language -- which is why I knew good answers) Commented Jul 20, 2011 at 21:06

If you click the second "edit" link* on your profile's edit view, it gives you the option of selecting which tags you want displayed, and whether or not you'd like anything to be displayed at all:

Tag percentile selection

*After this question was posted, the edit link was moved so that it was closer to the actual tags, making it easier to find.

    Ooops, never quite noticed that link nor though it would edit the tag (as it's on the right side of the photo) ; That's exactly what I was looking about, thanks ! Commented Jul 20, 2011 at 20:56
  • Yeah, the placement is a bit confusing. I actually found it the first time by accident, after clicking it trying to figure out what it was for.

I got a nibble that appeared to be related to my positions as an "expert" in a tag that I know nothing about, too.

You can edit which tags are shown using the lower button beside your avatar... enter image description here
