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 can see advertisements in Stack Overflow. But I can not see any advertisement in Meta Stack Overflow. As per FAQ for Reduced advertising I need 200 reputation for that. But I have less than 200 reputation. But I can not see advertisements here.

And that's a problem? Or are you saying there is the space, but the advertisement doesn't load? – Bart Nov 5 '12 at 14:26
No problem but why can't I see ads when I don't have it's Privileges. – aditya Nov 5 '12 at 14:28
Well, I just "fixed" the privilege page. (read its end now :)) – Shadow Wizard Nov 5 '12 at 14:42

The "reduced ads" privilege on Meta Stack Overflow requires one rep point. In other words, there are no ads on Meta.

Admittedly, the privileges page here says that you need 200 rep for reduced ads. That's because it's true for the other sites on the network, and the MSO privileges page is a wiki that gets copied to every site.

In other words, there is no bug, it's just bad documentation that's caused by the way the privileges page is set up.

So because of MSO page is a wiki, we can not remove privileges info about reduced ads on MSO? – aditya Nov 5 '12 at 14:33
Tried fixing the "bad documentation" please take a look. – Shadow Wizard Nov 5 '12 at 14:44
@ShaWizDowArd I thought about doing that myself, but I decided that leaving that information out was better for non-meta sites. Of course there's no definite right answer here, so I'm not going to roll your change back or anything. – Pops Nov 5 '12 at 15:05
Tim Stone pointed out to me in chat that I wrote another answer a while ago that's very similar to this one. – Pops Nov 5 '12 at 15:48

There are no ads on Meta.SO, like there are no ads on all SE 2.0 sites.

The only sites with ads are SO, SF and SU.
