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

I'm thinking the functionality in Area51, where hovering over the icon of a site shows the reputation on that site in the tooltip.

Click on the "got flair?" link under the picture in your user profile. – Jon Seigel Jan 11 '11 at 23:42
Not a duplicate. I know where the combined flair is, what I miss is the hovering bit (is it really that unclear? Okay, rephrasing time) – Jürgen A. Erhard Jan 12 '11 at 4:34

The only official flair format is the image format offered via your profile page. You could take a look at and search for flair there.

Of the flair options on StackApps, I'd recommend personally though. (: You can get an html version which provides tooltips for the different elements.

"Of the flair options on StackApps, I'd recommend";. Subtle :) – Michael Mrozek Jan 12 '11 at 7:09

Since HTML does not allow you to assign alt or title texts to specific parts of an image, and since non-image based flair is not available, this is not possible through Stack Exchange, nor is it likely to be offered, based on the following quote:

What about the old, non image based flair?

The earlier methods of sharing flair are deprecated and will go away eventually. Please use the simpler image flair from this point onward!


Options that use the API are available, with StackFlair's HTML based version providing the mouseover text you want.
