The SE site linking interface could be modified as follows:

* Move the Link with Stack Exchange option to the "top level" site codidact.com.
* Populate the individual SE accounts as a checkbox list.
  * SE sites where user doesn't have any content shall be excluded (or grayed out).
  * SE sites without a corresponding Codidact site shall be grayed out, with link to [Site Suggestions](https://meta.codidact.com/categories/10).
* Select all sites by default.
* Provide options to select or deselect all sites at once.
* Provide a search box to search for specific sites.

The linking can be done multiple times. Users who wish to continue contributing to SE or contribute to a new SE site after linking can thus import their newer content. However, content which has been deleted on SE after being imported will not be automatically deleted.


![Wireframe for linking](https://meta.codidact.com/rails/active_storage/blobs/eyJfcmFpbHMiOnsibWVzc2FnZSI6IkJBaHBXdz09IiwiZXhwIjpudWxsLCJwdXIiOiJibG9iX2lkIn19--6775e524ba6bb5b518f0386b4069537e1e3f4c16/c779fb382c4b47d682289843fe440c0e.png) 

With this interface, the most common (expected) usecase of linking all sites requires least user effort. It also enables other usecases, such as skipping a few sites, to be handled with just a little more effort.
