Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

You don't have enough rep on meta to hide it yet.

I thought it went away at 10k to make room for the tools link, but now that tools and review share a spot that doesn't make sense. Apparently it goes away at 5k, but I don't know why

I'd assume just because at 5,000 reputation you should know what Stack Overflow (or Meta) is "about". – animuson Dec 6 '11 at 23:22
Hmmm that is odd. wonder why they make it go bye bye at that point. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 7 '11 at 13:53
