The problem

I find it quite difficult to track all stack exchange sites I participate in. I quite frequently participate on Stackoverflow, but occasionally in others as well. So I sometimes forget to check individual sites for activities.


What I'd like to be able to do is to have a kind of tabs at the top, where I would see tabs of all the stack exchange sites I registered into. If they'd have the envelope notification beside them it would be even better so I would be notified there's something for me there to check out.

This would definitely make my participation much easier (and I suppose others would agre with me on this as well) because I wouldn't have to remember all those obscure URLs to some beta sites. I could just go to Stackoverflow and access them all from there (or any other site for that matter).

Regarding usability: These tabs would most probably have to be completely on the top (above user/site top bar, because that one is already related to a particular site).

  • @Simon: Related but definitely not the same. I don't want a conglomerate site with aggregated content from all sites. – Robert Koritnik Sep 16 '10 at 9:48
  • @Jeff Atwood: If the Possible duplicate at top is related to your reason for "question closure" than that question is not really duplicate. It's similar, but not the same because it doesn't show you all sites where you participate so you can't access them quickly. It just notifies you of activity in other SE sites. – Robert Koritnik Sep 16 '10 at 9:51
  • @Robert: 1) Yeah, I only linked them to encourage discussion on the two feature suggestions, also some comments on the other may be relevant to this. 2) I noticed that Jeff has tagged his possible duplicate as "status-planned". I suspect they have something in the works that is going to meet a whole bunch of requirements so Jeff is just closing down stuff that will end up all being covered. It's clear they are moving in that direction with the StackExchange homepage. I'd wait until this new thing (what ever it is) appears and then post again if you have more update suggestions. – Simon P Stevens Sep 16 '10 at 13:33
  • @Simon P Stevens: Ok. So do I have to set additional status tags on this question or will it get it after a while or whatever else? – Robert Koritnik Sep 16 '10 at 15:22

    @Robert, only mods can set the red status tags, so just leave it as it is. – Simon P Stevens Sep 16 '10 at 19:27
