What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

As of a couple months back, a link to /help/privileges can be found on your profile page:

profile page privileges

This is a problem for child meta sites, since privileges there are (mostly) inherited from the main site. As a result, the privileges page is empty.

Navigating to most help center articles on a child meta will redirect you to the main site - even the What is Meta? topic lives on main!

The privileges page should work the same way.

I have made the change - child metas will link directly to the parent site privileges page.

With you in the next build (rev 2014.3.5.1422, meta rev 2014.3.5.2016).

Did this get reverted somehow? See: Is there a reason the site-local Meta privileges page is blank? – Jon Ericson Oct 7 '14 at 1:42
No, nothing changed there - specifically, the "privileges" link on the child meta profile page still points to the parent site privileges page. The issue is that going directly to the page doesn't cause a redirect. – Oded Oct 7 '14 at 9:19
