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

Total number of sites seems incorrect

The StackExchange "about" page prominently purports that it is a network of "59 question and answer sites," but in reality it's now a network of 61 such sites. Let's not leave our new friends Cryptography and Literature out of the count. :o)

Also, on the site list, the "Network Stats" blurb lists 59 as well.

I'm pretty sure this has come up before, but Meta Stack Overflow does not count, nor does Stack Apps.

So the count is correct as-is afaik -- the Stack Exchange 2.0 network is all non-meta Q&A sites. Stack Apps is a special kind of meta site, where we talk about apps and the API.

Just replace the count with the latest Google Chrome version: ∞ – random Aug 19 '11 at 22:37
@ckittel updated for's because MSO and StackApps are not counted – David Fullerton Aug 19 '11 at 23:46
Maybe the Network stats blurp should list "2 meta sites" (or 62 if we include the site specific ones and the discussion site for Area 51?), too? – Paŭlo Ebermann Aug 20 '11 at 0:11
