Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

This is my profile page on Stack Overflow. I have accounts on all 104 Stack Exchange sites including the newest ones. But the profile page is showing only 101 accounts instead of 104. Is this a possible bug? I must also add that all those accounts are quite old.


This page on Stack Exchange shows all the 104 accounts, so I believe none of the accounts were deleted.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Maybe some of the sites you had accounts for were deleted, and you only have accounts on 101 active sites? – psubsee2003 Jun 25 '13 at 15:49
can i just ask why would you need all 100+ accounts? – user221081 Jun 25 '13 at 15:54
Why have so many accounts when 96% of them are absolutely useless? – Doorknob Jun 25 '13 at 16:27
The second link only shows 103 accounts, have 99 sites at 101 rep and 4 sites with higher rep. – Joe W Jun 25 '13 at 18:37

You're missing a couple: MathOverflow and English Language & Usage.

My count of your profiles is actually 103 and one of them is Area 51 which doesn't count... 103 - Area51 + MO + EL&U gives us 104 sites.

I think I miscounted yours somewhere. I got 104 accounts including Area 51. You're definitely missing the two sites above, though.

Not sure why 101 is displayed on the profile. Mine also says 101 and I'm guaranteed to have an account on every site, so I'm guessing that some may be excluded based on some criteria. I'll double-check.

I assumed that 101 was a deliberate limit imposed by the developers because it's a number with some kind of educational connotations, and to dissuade people from obsessively creating even more accounts just for the sake of seeing the number increase. My profile has said 101 for ages, even as I've registered for several more accounts. – Jeremy Banks Jan 15 '14 at 22:52
Any chance there is hard coded check somewhere that if greater than 101, make it 101? Some sort of "sanity check" from ages ago when there were only few sits? I know it sounds silly, but as programmer I've placed such sanity checks myself. :) – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '14 at 23:15
@ShadowWizard Hah, no. Turns out this had to do with the page size we used when retrieving data from the SE API (which we also use internally, yay). Samo put a fix in that will be rolling out in the next build. – Adam Lear Mar 28 '14 at 21:08
Cheers, though 101 is weird page size. :-) – Shadow Wizard Mar 28 '14 at 22:10
@ShadowWizard 100 + Area 51. :) – Adam Lear Mar 29 '14 at 0:03
Oh, that Area 51 stick out from every corner! ;) – Shadow Wizard Mar 29 '14 at 0:15
