What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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
