Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 don't all SE sites have the same naming format? While most of them are {site-name}.stackexchange.com, there are others like serverfault and superuser, and of course stackoverflow.com is a unique name in itself.

What were the reasons for these namings?

Stack Overflow, Server Fault and Super User (the original trilogy) predate Stack Exchange.
