If you could monitor your rank more closely,,,?

It would be nice if it told you when you were about to reach a milestone as others have said, otherwise it doesn't seem to matter much.

That'd be nice, but I'm not all that concerned with rank. It's nice to climb the ladder and be able to do more tasks and such, but you miss all the fun if all you're doing is keeping score.

I think it would really help with improving your rank.

Interesting post, I bet it would be a computer programmers nightmare

Maybe other people were working hard that night. Don't worry bout it.

Very true. Seems like a little too much work.

It's a nifty idea but I don't think it's plausible, it's be too much to create a page like that

I'd really like it. It would help new users like me not to be too confused about ranking...

It wouldn't really affect me if it was there or not because I probably wouldn't check it that often

I would love it. I've been desperately trying to raise my ranking to no avail.

I don't review, so it doesn't matter to me. I also don't care much about reviewers ranks.

I don't really pay that much attention to my rank.

Sounds like a nightmare to program, and for very little gain.

I bring this up because I finally managed to get my rank up to 6.5 and noticed this morning it was back down to 6.4, I was curious ... More
This sounds cool.

As others have said, it would be mostly impossible, since rank isn't calculated solely through our own stuff. It's relative to everyone else's performance too.

Plus (OPINION ALERT), there is already way too much focus on rank, what kind of votes people get on their reviews, why someone didn't leave a comment, etc. I think breaking it down even further would just make that focus even worse.

I dont manage my ranking, maybe because I still newish to everything. I also think it would stress me out.

I think EF purposely leaves the rank rating vague so you dont "farm" rank and instead just concentrate on meaningful contribution

Right, and because of that... I don't see how it could all be displayed on one page, nice and neat, for anyone to keep track of.

I feel that this would be something that I would like to use, since my rank never seems to change.. I've been stuck at 5.1 for 6months or so.

If it was an option--great! If not, it's always fun working to get to the next level. I love surprises.

It's an interesting idea but it might be too complicated to do.
