I just went over the list of Community Managers and this caught my attention:

Different look and feel, too gray... poor Ana deserves more in my opinion. I went and dug up her combined flair just to see the reason it wasn't used:

You do not have any linked accounts with 200+ rep

True, and generally I totally agree with this but in case of Stack Exchange employee, reputation should not matter or become a barrier.

Can Ana get a colorful flair like all her co-workers? :)

    The sad thing is that even if she gets a load of rep on MSO it still won't be colourful :-(... – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 18 '13 at 9:21

    I seem to remember I noticed the inconsistency in the list yesterday, went to replace Ana's MSO flair with network flair, saw the reason it was how it was, discarded the edit. – michaelb958--Reinstate Monica Nov 18 '13 at 9:21
  • @ben but when she gets 200 here on Meta at least she can have the combined flair. :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Nov 18 '13 at 9:23
  • @michaelb958 I was about to do the same but on second thought decided to give this a try. Who knows it might work. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Nov 18 '13 at 9:24

    @Sha, that freehand circle is creepy. Are you a stalker of some kind? ;) – Frédéric Hamidi Nov 18 '13 at 9:28

    That would be unflair. – brasofilo Nov 18 '13 at 9:29


Why give someone special treatment when reputation and badges (flair) are the measure of our participation on the sites?

Basically, a dev would have to game the system to make this happen, and AFAIK we play a different (fair) game based on actual achievements that unlocks those tiny-colourful things and its associated numbers.

The diamond is enough to mark a new employee as a special user. The rest is up to her/him.

    I sometimes see users without a diamond do things like adding moderator only tags, and upon checking it they turn out to be Stack Exchange employees who got special privilege. That's not gaming the system. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Nov 18 '13 at 12:01
  • @ShaWizDowArd Sure, but getting rep just for being an employee is. It's also pointless, the diamond grants Ana all rep-tied privileges anyway. – yannis Nov 18 '13 at 13:12

    @Yannis I don't suggest or ask to give her reputation, just show the combined flair even without 200+ account. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Nov 18 '13 at 13:17

    @ShaWizDowArd Oh, I see. Just got out of a long meeting, I should stay afk until my brain recuperates. – yannis Nov 18 '13 at 13:25
