If you’re a developer, you must have heard about Stack Overflow. Certainly, you also have pieces of code in your projects that have been copied from the answers you found there. 🙂 I’m no exception – I have used Stack Overflow for a long time. 3 years ago I even created an account, but it was practically inactive (a new user with no reputation cannot do much). But a year ago I become to be more active there. What is the effect of the year on Stack Overflow?
Despite that, I managed to earn about 11,000 reputation points for a year, which gave access to practically all interesting moderator tools. I answered almost 600 questions, which (at least in theory) reached nearly 300,000 people. For 4 the most interesting tags I managed to get brown badges, including a silver badge for Yii2. The result is quite satisfying considering that for most of the time I did not pay attention to any of these statistics. 🙂
