comment What skills (if any) differentiate UX from Design?
I think you need to be as specific about what you mean by 'Design' as you mean by 'UX'. Designing a user's experience can take many forms, and different skills. Designing the UX at Disney's Magic Kingdom takes a lot of different skillsets (and employees) than designing the UX of Netflix. Somebody that classifies him/herself as a UX professional usually focuses on the jobs/projects that match the skills/experience they have, and generally works with or brings in expertise in any area necessary to accomplish the design.

comment What skills (if any) differentiate UX from Design?
The issue you describe of designing for yourself and designing for your users happens when there is not a clear identification of and focus on who the users are and how the design meets their NEEDS, not wants. When doing UX on DoD projects, I never had project stakeholders say, 'We're not building what YOU want' which came up far more often when building an online video platform, where I am a more obvious user. The focus on the user needs is the grand difference within the continuum of design vs visual/graphical vs UI vs interaction - all of which a UX pro may need to do the job well.

@yarian, i'd go even further to say that unless you know and can judge the reputation of the person who upvoted the skill, or at least could see that person's score for the same skill, it is not meaningful to the profile viewer. the numerical upvote score would have to reflect something more like h-index

I updated the question and I'm not asking for lots or for homework (as a working professional, especially at startups, we call this a job btw, not homework). FWIW, Avvo.com and Martindale.com both also have mechanisms, I was looking for more depth as Rahul pointed out, but I think I'm starting to better understand who, what, and how value is derived from ux.se...

thats a great perspective that I don't have much insight to! thanks for the response. "The index works properly only for comparing scientists working in the same field; citation conventions differ widely among different fields." I was never stellar at math, but you'd have to 'normalize' the numbers across the scientific community to arrive at a score that could be universally displayed?

yep, that's the one I read - very useful, but I still can't find examples where offline activity is summarized as a reputation score, outside of a resume (linkedIn example also mentioned)

I added it to the bulleted list but I already included a description of that exact element in the background. That is the only system I know of which attempts tho, thanks!

ouch. well i know it was a long question but "I don't need a whole site breakdown, just the leads on where to look, and thoughts on why you're suggesting it." I don't expect a best, but do you know of ANY that do this?
