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

On the accounts tab, I see "- questions" on Area 51.

Why does it not pull these values from the Area 51 discussion site?

I'd assume because the discussion site is basically the equivalent of a site's meta. – animuson Feb 14 '12 at 17:46
Perhaps, and it is true that the Q and A there have no impact on your reputation. – corsiKa Feb 14 '12 at 18:34

Those question and answer counts are just for the main Q&A sites. They do not include the back-room meta discussions.

The "discussion" of Area 51 is analogous to a type of meta discussion for Area 51, so it is not counted as part of the Q&A network.

I guess - it just looks a little awkward to have the -'s there. And you wouldn't be able to judge a person's activity with the accounts overview. But I guess it makes sense. – corsiKa Feb 14 '12 at 22:40
