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

But I'd wager that I don't even use the tools menu on 1% of my visits to Stack Overflow.

I generally check the list of close votes each morning to see any questions that need to be closed, I also look at the low voted questions and answers to see if there are any areas that can be cleaned up. Thats about it.
