First of all, I’ve been using discourse for about a couple of years now (since the pre 1.0 days). Great product and our community loves it.
My only gripe with it is that it doesn’t show any kind of statistics/reputation next to the person’s name. Right now it appears that everyone is at the same level; there’s no way to tell apart between the guy who’s been consistently posting for two years and a guy who just signed up yesterday.
I know that @codinghorror doesn’t want to go the typical forum route where they list “meaningless” stats such as number of posts created. While I understand that argument, I do want to show something next to the username so that others know who they’re dealing with. Perhaps display a user level, some kind of badge, etc.
I saw previous discussions relating to this, but they all seemed to have died down in 2013/2014.
Is something like this in the pipeline?
