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

In the main sites, the help menu looks like this:

Normal menu

However, when we get to Meta, the menu turns into this:

Meta Menu

The "Back to (Main Site)" link is on the top, and we have four menu items now.

My first point is that "Back to (Main Site)" should be in the same position as the "Meta" link the original menu. That way, when I click on the link for Meta, I can return to the main site the same way I came.

Additionally, to make it "three and three", the Tour link probably doesn't need to be in the help menu for meta. Instead, "What's Meta" should use that spot, as we all know Meta is Different.

+1 Also note that meta.[site]/tour redirects to [site]/help, making the meta tour link even more unnecessary. – michaelb958 Feb 20 '14 at 10:36
