comment Use of “skill” and “competence/competency” in specific scenario
But how about particular use that I outlined in the question? When we refer to Stackoverflow users and their competencies related to specific software development abilities that are demonstrated in their questions and answers? What would be more correct? I can see that a third word could also be used proficiencies.

@Rob_Ster Ok so in case of Stackoverflow where we can track someone's abilities (checking their questions and answers) this is then not just a generalised potential but rather demonstrated ability? Does this align with your reasoning?

@Rob_Ster I have and I haven't found any questions regarding difference between the two. Provide a link and we can discuss whether it's duplicate or not, because I have this very specific scenario which I want to be 100% point on.
