Having been participating on Stack Overflow a bit recently, I've noticed this:

This doesn't seem to exist on Ask Different:

Can it be added?

  • Good question, is it because SO is a bit bigger? If you check stackexchange.com/sites you can see SO is (according to the image) 4 times bigger than AskDifferent. – Rob Feb 25 '14 at 10:31
  • @Robuust Yeah, but why does that mean that the statistic isn't shown here? – grg Feb 25 '14 at 10:55
  • I have no idea, I'd like to see it too. But that was my point - maybe it's still in beta on SO? I don't know? Just guessing along with you. – Rob Feb 25 '14 at 11:12
  • Can a moderator flag it to development - or this needs to be reposted on meta.stackexchnage.com – mmmmmm Feb 25 '14 at 14:10

It seems only SO shows the rep. league.

Since SE has 115(!) Q&A sites all in all, I made a script (obviously :P) to look through each of them and check whether profile pages showed rep. league.

The result was that no other SE sites but SO showed it. To be extra sure, I also recorded total number of users for each site and number of users with actual RP change. And thus, I don't think it has anything to do with community size.

Just to give you an idea of community sizes on SE:

  • SO has ~2.85 mill.
  • Ask Ubuntu has ~181k
  • Ask Different has ~54k
  • Homebrew has 3.6k
  • Italian has 445

So maybe the SE devs are just trying it out on their largest site? Doesn't seem to be by mistake that it only shows on SO.

Seems it's been done — it now exists as of rev 2014.5.14.1605:

  • Showing too precise precision i.e. that should make more sense as ).2% and mine should be 1% rather than .98% – mmmmmm May 20 '14 at 18:47
  • @Mark I guess it's using the same code as SO/etc where 0.01% is a fair few spots on the leaderboard. – grg Jun 11 '14 at 19:36
  • SO seems to be rounded to 1 significant figure e.g. 2% which is why I noticed – mmmmmm Jun 11 '14 at 20:02
