I just joined meta.stackoverflow.com and linked my account to my Stackoverflow one. I like upvoting good answers, but unfortunately I have to start off with reputation 1 on meta, which doesn't let me upvote.
How about letting me transfer 15 rep points from my Stackoverflow account into my meta one?
Otherwise there doesn't seem to be a way that I can get involved in the meta community without actually posting or answering a question. That's annoying because I frequently come here to find out how Stackoverflow works, and I can't upvote good answers.
I don't want to create a question just for the sake of it, and almost all questions are answered before I get anywhere near them!
Update: It took me a while to figure out, but this meta question seems to explain how feature requests get processed:
-the request are considered open until a
status-bydesign tag is added to the question
-the Stackoverflow team generally don't even look at feature requests until they reach 10 upvotes.
