It'd be nice if the different flair options could be hosted on HTTPS as well as HTTP, so that they could be used in — for example — HTTPS-secured intranet sites.

    Oh, god. Flair on an intranet site?! You're taking SO too seriously.

    Haha, quite possibly. It's more of a challenge to my coworkers. Dec 2, 2009 at 13:48

    I have my flair on my internal Sharepoint page. What else do you put there?

This is possible now that StackExchange has basic SSL support, just change the protocol to https.

se-flair also supports HTTPS if you use the PNG image version.


You could write a little proxy script a https server that retrieves the flair image (over http)

In php the script would look something like this:

$image = file_get_contents('http://stackoverflow.com/users/flair/19165.png');
foreach ($http_response_header as $header) {
echo $image;

Just replace 19165 with your StackOverflow id.
