This was an unintentional slip-up. We were fixing some Google crawler errors for deleted user cards on questions/answers and a set of brackets got missed in the code path that renders schema.org attributes. That meant that this: RenderSchema ? @"<span class=""d-none"" itemprop=""name"">" + UserToShow?.ToString() ?? name + "</span>" : "" ...

No, I can't. This is because a span with class d-none, which effectively hides the reputation, etc. <span class="d-none" itemprop="name">ankii <div class="-flair"> <span class="reputation-score" title="reputation score " dir="ltr">222</span><span title="1 gold badge" aria-hidden="true"><span class="badge1"><...

Slight improvement suggestion: get rid of the "enough info in profile" criterion. As the privilege currently works, An expanded usercard is only available if there are at least 28 characters in the "About Me" section of your profile. When your profile is long enough to show an expanded usercard a drop shadow effect will be shown on your avatar. If ...

If I have learned anything from the Internet, it is this: be very, very careful when you put a number next to someone's name. Because people will do whatever it takes to make that number go up. - Jeff Atwood, Coding Horror People are already concerned about users abusing the sites just to earn hats. Putting a fancy little number next to their name will ...

First: awesome title. I hope you file as many bugs as possible. This is a subtle bug we missed in testing. In order to pin the footer to the bottom in most modern browsers, we added the following styles earlier today: html { height: 100%; } body { min-height: 100%; .flexbox(); .flex-flow(column nowrap); } .container { width: 100%; .flex(); } ...

This was my fault; it's fixed in the next build. In this recent bugfix, I forgot to consider HTML comments that start at the beginning of the text, i.e. aren't really preceded by newlines. Since Markdown has the concept of "block-level HTML comments" (which is something I like to bitch about, but actually helps us here), here's what should happen: Markdown ...

Let me take a moment to introduce you to a fella who has largely gone unnoticed in Stack Exchange pop culture, Darin Dimitrov. This Stack Overflow user doesn't have a Darin Dimitrov facts page, nor is he treated like the minor celebrity that Jon Skeet has become, yet this person is Stack Overflow's #2 user, sporting a reputation of 378,615 at the time of ...

While this was a pain in the past, a few things have happened that have made this more reasonable to do: the Stack Exchange API v2.0 added authentication the WordPress hooks that enable a plugin to meddle in the authentication process have become much more documented, and involve wayyyyyyy less guesswork and pain in figuring out. We've enabled this on the ...

FYI the rep and badges is a bug. There is a fix incoming. – Taryn♦ 4 mins ago source: Let us opt-out of UI experiments on MSO Edit: So you can see my rep now..

You can't. There is no such user setting. It will automatically change to have k when it is too long (10,000 reputation and over in most places). Where the display changes to a k views depends on the amount of space it is displayed in - so in some places you will see 1k for 1000.

It actually wouldn't require any JavaScript. They could easily fix that with CSS: .user-info .user-details { text-overflow: ellipsis; } Personally I think it makes more sense to indicate that the name has been truncated, rather than just truncating and letting people wonder.


10

That user has 28 characters in the About Me section.


10

A line break isn't a big deal, but it would be better if the number were bound to the badge icon, breaking the line before the bronze badge marker instead of after. When displaying badge counts, treat it as three elements (each of which has two parts) instead of six. A comment suggests rounding to thousands and using "k", as is done with reputation, but ...

As per the established user page, An expanded usercard is only available if there are at least 28 characters in the "About Me" section of your profile. When your profile is long enough to show an expanded usercard a drop shadow effect will be shown on your avatar. The specified user's "About Me" section is empty, so it is not expanding. So it is not a ...

Additionally/alternatively, perhaps include a specific part of the user profile to specify pronouns that show on the user card even without having to expand the "expanded usercard privilege" to everyone. E.g.: And that comes from the values here on my profile page: This way you save a database call for Stack Exchange (just to see someone's preferred ...

How do people see an expanded usercard ? For usercard privilege you requires atleast 1K reputation. When anyone is viewing your usercard on a question, an answer, or on the users list, they may hover over your avatar to produce an expanded usercard that contains extra information. This is also known as a hover card.

This is apparently status-bydesign, according to SO employee Aaron Shekey on MSO: This intentional, but not ideal at the moment. I plan on having a preview card on every user. In my opinion, it's weird UX having it on some users and not all, regardless of a drop shadow or a bio. I'll update the help article to be more accurate tomorrow. Thanks for ...

The design team does a fantastic job of removing noise in the user interface of the Stack Exchange sites. Stack Exchange's main focus is on the content, the questions and answers, and that's reflected in the designs. Modifying the designs to make other elements stand out more could serve to clutter up the user interface and make it harder to focus on what's ...

I think it's wrong when you say that SE is not about gaining rep, and "no one should be here with a motive for the rep points". Everyone is here for their own reason, and there is nothing wrong with someone who is here for the rep. If it wasn't an incentive, they wouldn't have it. Obviously somebody is incentivized, and if that's their motivation, more ...

User cards already support this. Established users (those with 1k+ reputation) have a 'popout' user card, and links are included in that: You can try it 'live' by mousing over my avatar to the bottom right of this post. See How does the User Card popup work? for more details.

Low-tech solution warning! The "about me" section of a users profile allows you to post whatever information you want to. Perhaps you could add this information there. Take some screenshots of the badges you want to show off and place them in some <img> tags... You could even wrap those <img> tags with <a> tags making those badge ...

A fix is awaiting to be deployed, but currently on hold because of our current problems with SQL Server. Please be patient :-) We are now deploying to meta. It should not make a difference to anyone because the "thingy" is obsoleted by the new top bar. The issue is fixed in meta, as verified by hitting the old routes manually. We're pushing live now, hold ...

If the suspended user was a highly-active user with a lot of badges, the fact that they have only 1 rep but lots of high-value badges makes the fact that the user is suspended extremely obvious. For instance, imagine how this would look: On the other hand, not showing the badges on the user card makes it less obvious, especially to new and anonymous ...

This is a terrible change. Please put back reputation and badge counts! Explanation: Reputation and badges acknowledge contributions valued by the community. They provide useful quality signals and were one of the innovations that allowed Stack Overflow to rise above past online Q/A and expertise site failures. Removing them, or making them any less ...

This is a bug Don't fret. Taryn has confirmed it, saying a fix is coming soon. And it is now fixed.

Rep shows how much the community trusts you. In other words (I see it) the higher rep -- the more the community takes what you say as "good" It has nothing to do with the user. I have almost 50K on Stack Overflow -- That shows that some people trust me. If I lose that rep, I lose the trust. If I lose the rep on my own volition that is my choice, not the ...

Going further on Lix's answer: Why not change the markdown engine a little so that we not only have [tag:xxx] elements you can use, which are eventually rendered as hyperlinks to the tag info page, but also have [badge:xxx] which will render the badge icon and link.

To my understanding, a privilege granted to a user is something that has the potential to affect this website [...] Often, yes. But it doesn't have to be. A "privilege" in the context of our sites is simply something you unlock - a feature, like the expanded user card, fits that definition. The expanded user card is simply a perk, a reward given to someone ...

Well, this is still bold however "dimmed" by making the color lighter: All in all, fair compromise in my opinion.
