# Astronomy doesn't show at the top of Explore our sites

When logged in into stackoverflow and clicking StackExchange button on the bar( top left ), the sites where I'm a member of show before the search bar and every other site which are listed alphabetical.

This works for other sites, but not for Astronomy even though I'm a member of it. I first I though the site must not be in beta but space exploration is in beta but still shows at the top.

• I assume since you deleted this that you figured it out, but just in case you didn't: the sites listed at the top are the five sites you have the most rep in--not all sites you're a member of.

• @called2voyage I have 6 sites listed. But there is an answer at meta stackoverflow now meta.stackexchange.com/questions/216971/…. And if I open the menu from here I get 8 sites listed.

• Yes, any site you open also shows at the top. I don't know why you have six listed by default. Perhaps if you have two sites which tie for fifth place in rep they both show up? If you show me a screenshot I might be able to explain better.

• It would also help if you sent a screenshot of your Stack Exchange accounts page.

• I doubt it is worth the effort. Admins probably don't care about such details.

• They actually do. If there is indeed an error or bug, it would be worth pointing out. I cannot help assess whether there is or not without screenshots though.
