Deano’s answer to: “Should Quora have more in-depth “user stats” that include how many up-votes and down-votes a user receive, hours logged, average answer word count, etc?”

I'll mostly agree with Erica on the system-gaming aspects of stats – with the exception of word count.

Since Quora itself could easily evolve into a blog-ternative site, and/or otherwise encourage people to write more often and more consistently, being able to track ones' own stats could be a useful metric in improving one's answers/posts over time, or even as a portfolio tool as part of a job search.

Should Quora have more in-depth "user stats" that include how many up-votes and down-votes a user receive, hours logged, average answer word count, etc?
