What questions was my new rep for.


One thing I really miss from SE is the ability to see what answers of mine got upvoted since I last logged in (or in the last day). In other words, where did my rep increase come from.

Because vanity.

Is there a way to add this?

Is there a way to add this?

Yes. It's not the easiest thing in the world, but it's not impossible.

More relevant: Is it worth it?

The answer to that is probably no. The software this site is running on is now in maintenance mode, meaning it'll get bugfixes and critical new features. Beyond that, I need to be spending my time developing QPixel into Codidact - see this Codidact forum post for some background on what's happening with that.

In the hopefully-not-too-distant future, we'll transition this site to Codidact proper, and there won't be any reputation in the first place, which will make this fairly moot.

Sorry that's not the answer you wanted!

No reputation? Does that mean there will be no form of social proof or a different one? And if a different one, what will it be? I'm struggling to see how a QA site without social proof is any different from a plain old web forum. Mark Baker about 1 month ago

@MarkBaker It'll be a different one - trust levels, similar to how Discourse works (but rather more tailored...). I don't seem to be able to find our spec for it right now, but @MonicaCellio might be able to point you towards it. ArtOfCode about 1 month ago

Trust levels will tie privileges to activity, but I suspect @Mark is looking for something a little more visible. To whit: instead of showing a rep number, which doesn't actually tell you whether this person has a few popular posts, a zillion 0- and 1-point posts, lots of edits, one big bounty..., we'll show info with your user card like "13 questions, 25 answers, score 500+". The exact details are still TBD and input is most welcome. Monica Cellio about 1 month ago
