Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Should reputation from SO carry over to Meta?

I've noticed that the Stack Overflow meta has its own reputation but on Super User meta it's derived from parent site. Why is not same procedure is following there for reputation of its own meta itself?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It's Meta.Stackoverflow which is special; every other StackExchange site shares rep with its Meta site.

Why other meta ain't special only this one is? – avirk Aug 5 '11 at 17:05
@avirk because this meta isn't really just for stuff related to SO, it's for the whole Stack Exchange network – Daniel DiPaolo Aug 5 '11 at 17:05
If that's the case, shouldn't it be called "Meta Stack Exchange"? – Chris Frederick Aug 5 '11 at 17:08
@Chris There's some confusion because there was a Meta Stack Exchange, but it was only for SE 1.0 sites. does point here now, but the name hasn't changed – Michael Mrozek Aug 5 '11 at 17:11
