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

Now that there is a separate site for API-related discussion, etc., are announcements of tools developed with the API appropriate topics for Meta?

I'm bringing this up because there are two instances of this on the front page at the moment, and I'd like to get some consensus on the issue so everyone with mod powers can use those powers consistently.

By the way, I asked this because I'm honestly not sure, not because I necessarily want to see those announcement questions removed. – Jon Seigel Jun 24 '10 at 22:09

Announcements regarding tools and applications that use the Stack Overflow API should be posted to Stack Apps. Applications are listed under the 'apps' tab.

We used to have API-related discussions on meta, but now that we have a site dedicated for that purpose, application announcements should be posted there.

On meta, they should be closed as off-topic with a link to the new forum.

I can't get a more official answer than this! Thanks. – Jon Seigel Jun 24 '10 at 22:20

I vote Yes, this is the place to contact users, not all of us are developing.
