Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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
  1. I would like to edit a question to format it properly. How can I do that?
  2. Do you get reputation for good edits?
  3. How can I get a Moderator's attention? How does that system work?
  4. How can I delete a closed question?
  5. What if I can't get an adequate answer from StackOverflow?
  6. Where can I ask questions about SuperUser?

As an aside: with regards to "corrections" by Eric, the names are actually Stack Overflow and Super User (words separated by space). See e.g. page titles (or the FAQ) on each site. – Jonik Aug 8 '09 at 20:15

I would like to edit a question to format it properly. How can I do that?
You need 2,000 reputation to edit other's posts. If it is a community wiki, 100.

Do you get reputation for good edits?
No

How can I get a Moderator's attention? How does that system work?
Press Flag Button Under Question, Choose Option, Press Sumbit

How can I delete a closed question?
Press 'Delete' on your own question, or requires 10,000 rep for others.

What if I can't get an adequate answer from StackOverflow?
Place a Bounty after 2 days for at least 50 reputation. It will then become a 'featured' question, and whoever you pick as the accepted answer gets the reputation, and you get your answer. If you haven't picked an answer in 7 days, it auto accepts the highest voted answer.

Where can I ask questions about SuperUser?
Here (meta.stackoverflow.com)

For all other lovely Reputation Based Questions, refer to the StackOverflow FAQ

Addendum about first point: if the question is in community wiki mode, 100 reputation suffices. – Jonik Aug 8 '09 at 20:06
