Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I use StackOverflow, SuperUser, Webmasters etc in the StackExchange network. I know that there are multiple meta sites like, etc.
There are various links in the bottom footer and in that meta is there. It is linked to not only in StackOverflow, but also in other sites like SuperUser, Webmasters etc. I think it will be more useful if that link is dynamic, carrying the corresponding site's meta link - like in .

It is a small suggestion from my side to the moderators, to improve our site.

The per-site meta is linked at the top of the page. The footer is where they promote all the other sites in the network. Since this is the global meta, it gets mentioned there too.

The Meta link is there because Meta SO does not only serve as the SO site specific Meta (for now). If you look at the FAQ of Meta SO, you will notice it also serves as a Meta for the SE network as a whole, Stack Overflow Careers and various other topics.

As listed in the FAQ:

If your question is about:

  • Stack Overflow
  • Stack Exchange
  • Stack Overflow Careers
  • Promotions & Advertising
  • Support, feature requests, or bug reports for the core Stack Exchange engine that powers all Stack Exchange websites

… it is welcome here.
