When looking at the MultiCollider drop down I'm not seeing my accounts on Code Review or Area 51.

enter image description here

I could swear I saw my Code Review account there the day I created the account, but since then it seems to be missing.

The only reference I could find on the intended behavior of the MultiCollider:

Your current site appears at the top, along with any relevant meta, chat, and blog links. Stack Overflow gets a careers 2.0 link. Immediately below, in a new condensed format (you certainly don’t need descriptions if you’re participating in a site already), you’ll get a list of all the sites that you have logged into, in order of reputation. Finally, you’ll find the full alphabetical site list with descriptions, searchable by title, URL, and description.

  • Your rep on Code Review went down below 100 so you won't see it anymore until it's back to 101. (same score items are sorted alphabetically) Jan 22, 2014 at 13:14
  • @ShadowWizard that makes sense for Code Review, but what about Area 51? I think my rep there is 206.

  • Area51 does not show in the site list of the top bar, it's a known issue and by design. (going to look where it was mentioned) Jan 22, 2014 at 14:17

The site selector only shows a limited selection of sites that you're most active (read: have most rep) on at the top above the search bar. For example, mine currently looks like this:

The rest of the 63 sites I have an account on don't get shown at the top — if I want to get to them via the sitw switcher menu, I have to look for them in the alphabetical list (or use the search box).

As for why this is done, well, let's go back to that "63 sites" part. Sure, I might appreciate a convenient link to Graphic Design, Physics, Biology or Academia, all of which I have more than 1k rep on, but if those were all included at the top of the menu, the search box would drop out of sight — and that would be a much bigger inconvenience. And I'd still be missing out on several sites that I visit pretty often, but don't happen to have as much rep on.

A simple "show more..." link above the search box would be kind of nice to have, though.

And if you think I have it bad, just think of all the poor SE employees who have an account on all the sites...
