Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

For example, my network flair has icons for Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow, Super User, Mathematics and Area 51, but my reputation browser only shows the first four of those (i.e. not Area 51). Why?

I half feel like this is supposed to have a [tag:jeff] since you seem to be asking him directly. You might have to wait 6-8 weeks for a response... – Lix Dec 13 '12 at 17:55

In the past when I put either of the two co-founders names directly I got burnt everytime. Guessing their answer would be along the lines that Area 51 is a birthplace for Q & A sites and not a Q & A site for rep purposes. Again guessing but I sense this is where the PreCog badge might bridge the gap. My 2 cents. – Jeremy Thompson Dec 14 '12 at 4:41
I see it on your reputation browser, maybe you lack top-secret security clearance? – PeterJ Dec 23 '12 at 10:31
