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

This might be worked on soon (or I may be preempting it), but this feels wrong.

Shouldn't it read something* like this:

Programming questions are off-topic on Meta. Please refer to "How to Ask". See also: Why are questions no longer being accepted from my account?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "The problem described here can no longer be reproduced. Changes to the system or to the circumstances affecting the asker have rendered it obsolete. If you encounter a similar problem, please post a new question." – michaelb958, Emrakul, random, hims056, Undo
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Programming questions are probably not going to be as big of a problem anymore either, so it might be best to see if replacing it completely would be a better idea. – 3ventic Apr 17 '14 at 1:11
No, I'm willing to bet that programming questions would still get asked here. At least, in the beginning. – Makoto Apr 17 '14 at 1:12
Very sneaky, Shog. I see what you did there. – Makoto Apr 17 '14 at 1:17

You're crazy. That off-topic reason doesn't exist here. I'm pretty sure you faked that screenshot, you big phony!

Well, the team seems to move quicker at squashing those bugs than I do at posting 'em. Well played. – Makoto Apr 17 '14 at 1:20
upvotes only because of @Shog9's edit – hichris123 Apr 17 '14 at 1:21
