It's not an option for the entire network, but IMHO worth mentioning: MathOverflow just implemented this by default: Reputation and badges are no longer visible next to the users' names, with a (currently broken) option to opt out. Who knows, it might evolve to a (hopefully opt-in) feature on other sites in the network.


Well - except in exceptional situations, SE's never a primary source. I'd break down the answer to this question into 2 parts Is the question on topic, and askable on the site Does this build on "primary" research I did myself I'm personally unsure there's a 'great' way to reference a secondary source like SE when its a primary/official source ...


The issue got fixed today. I don't know what fixed it. Snapshot of my chat profile on 2022-01-22.
