What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

I think many experts in stack exchange have knowledge in multiple discipline, and they would like to share their knowledge across multiple domains. It is not difficult for them to have knowledge in more than 7 domains. Please make the combined flair shows more than 7 icons to encourage expert supports other satellite sites.

Nope, the flair is limited to at most 7 sites. With the SE network growing, perhaps making room for more icons is going to be needed, but I do wonder how many people actually have more than 200 rep across 8 or more sites right now. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 25 '13 at 11:28

@gnat - Isn't this question different as here OP is asking for the feature? –  hims056 Jan 25 '13 at 11:53

@hims056 yup looking at tags made me doubt for a while. But after I read "Is it possible to have more than 7...?" (instead of something like "let's make it 8+"), I decided it's a dupe –  gnat Jan 25 '13 at 11:55

@MartijnPieters: Yes. (And sorry about deleting my previous comment, I only realized that this post was over a year old after posting it, and tried to undo it.) I think I did have 21 or so even back when this was originally posted. –  Ilmari Karonen Mar 5 at 0:59

This isn't really needed. The whole point of the flair is to highlight your activity on the Stack Exchange network. Seven sites does that perfectly well. Adding more logos to the flair image doesn't achieve anything because those logos don't actually link to their separate sites. They all link to a single page, which has an accounts tab, which will list out all sites you're using and your reputation under each one. It's simple enough for a user to access that information and access each specific profile without the need for overwhelming them with icons on a flair image (which they may not even know the meaning of).

If you're so worried about showing off every site, try generating your own image. Or, you could even dedicate an entire page on your personal site (like I did) to explaining each site and what you get from participating in it.

I disagree on the basis that the numeric values (rep and badges) show totals based on all sites over 200 rep whether or not their respective icons show on the bar. Therefore, it's inconsistent and confusing. –  Southpaw Hare Mar 4 at 15:04
