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

So, as far as I can tell, I earned the Constantinopolitan hat for StackOverflow because I posted in Meta StackOverflow. But now I want to earn it for Meta StackOverflow. Is there some secret Meta Meta StackOverflow that I can post on to get the hat?

1st rule of meta.meta never ask about meta.meta.

Nope doesn't exist.

Not possible to get the hat here.

It is kind of like trying to get the Precognitive badge on any of the trilogy sites.

In this case meta is meta.meta. – Toon Krijthe Dec 19 '12 at 22:33

Poking through the hat closet of the top hat owners on MSO, I can't find anyone with that hat so I presume it's just not possible.

This is much like the situation with the Convention badge which you cannot get on meta.

Alas, MSO is the only place one cannot earn the Constantinopolitan hat. It's because of the Very Special Relationship that MSO has to both Stack Overflow and the network at large. We apologize for the inconvenience, but I'm sure you'll be able to unlock many of the others!

If meta.meta existed you would then want the Constantinopolitan hat for meta.meta and therefore need meta.meta.meta, what is the stopping condition...

Damn it, stackoverflow!

There's a pretty easy solution to this--recursion. – jdotjdot Dec 19 '12 at 23:17

I feel compelled to link What about meta-meta Stack Overflow.

In my opinion, this is voodoo.
