Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Are badges assigned on meta sites (such as meta.english.stackexchange.com) included in the badge count shown by the global flair?

Nope, meta stack exchange sites are not included, only this meta.stackoverflow.com is included, and only the site you have 200+ reps counted for badges

This is a copy of your flair at the moment

your flair

and you have 9 sites with 200+ reputations

  • gold badges — 10 (2+3+1+1+1+1+1)
  • silver badges — 36 (8+8+5+9+1+2+1+2)
  • bronze badges — 176 (38+23+16+32+20+9+13+13+12)

That answers the how it is computed. I'm then interested in why the badges on meta sites aren't counted. – vonbrand Mar 29 '13 at 3:37
