In this recent site meta answer I wrote
There are almost 200 SE sites to choose from! But they vary in question rate and temperament.
I actually took the time to count them the first time I used this line, and I just keep using "almost 200".1 As far as I can tell stackexchange.com/sites doesn't display a total anywhere.
I wonder if a "N sites and counting..." message near the top would be helpful? Surely we're all proud of how SE keeps growing and diversifying.
1I just discovered a trick; searching for "%" returns 181 instances.
