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

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
