Breaking out reputation by tags
There are lots of discussions about how reputation derived from hard or soft questions counts.
Would it be possible to show people's reputation by tag?
Perhaps when showing an answer, the user's rep could also be broken out to highlight when their rep has been gained on questions with the same tags as the current one.
I'm sure it would be quite explosively difficult (and certainly storage costs would be higher), but it might help to mitigate for some of these soft/hard gripes.
I also like this idea. That would be neat. Out of votes though.
I like this idea. Will also help identify experts in their field also.
