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

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

@Tim you wouldn't rest so easily if you knew that.... I'm watching you right now... – Marc Gravell Feb 24 '12 at 13:19
I am actually kind of unsettled now, my side bar claims you posted something in the Sandbox, but there's nothing there. :o – Tim Stone Feb 24 '12 at 13:24
