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

Why is the “edit” link missing from the user profile page on Meta?

I wanted to keep a different description of myself on Islam.SE and it's meta. I see a edit link on my profile page for the main site which I have edited and added a different description, but not for the meta site.

Can anyone please let me know, why I am not able to edit the profile on meta Islam.SE? Is it synced with the main SE site?

Also, please let me know, which is the proper site to ask such questions? I mean, this is something technical and not related to the community of the concerned SE site. I thought, this would best belong to meta.SO, so asked the question here.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Besides this main Meta, the meta sites are "satellites" of the main sites and users don't have their own profile on them. – Shadow Wizard Aug 20 '12 at 8:01
You're right about the site, meta.SO is the historical place to ask questions about technical issues with the SE sites. – Gnoupi Aug 20 '12 at 8:02
Hmm, I now understand this completely. Meta Stack Exchange is a full fledged SO child site but dedicated to just the main SO. And all other Stack Exchange sites have meta's as satellites as mentioned by @ShaWizDowArd. – mtk Aug 25 '12 at 12:10

Your per site Meta profile is linked to your main site profile, unfortunately there isn't a way to have a different profile on a per site Meta. The only Meta that you can have a different profile is Meta Stack Overflow, but that's because it's a bit special, it doubles as the Meta for Stack Overflow and the Meta for the entire Stack Exchange network.

As for your second question, it would be absolutely fine if you have asked this on Meta Islam, regardless of the question being about a technical issue. It might even be preferable to ask all your Meta questions on your site's Meta instead of Meta Stack Overflow, per site Metas need all the love they can get and a healthy and active Meta is a sign of a healthy and active community.

What is confusing though is that there still is a "click here to edit" link on the meta page, and it does nothing besides refreshing the page. – Gnoupi Aug 20 '12 at 8:04
@Gnoupi Hm? There's no edit link on a per site Meta profile. – Yannis Aug 20 '12 at 8:08
Ah, nevermind, I see the problem. It's not an edit link, it's the "click here to edit", probably because I have a blank "about me". I'll make a bug report about this (though it's quite minor) – Gnoupi Aug 20 '12 at 8:22
