What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

At the bottom of the newly-created Web Applications stack along with its Meta site, there is the standard list of links to Stack Overflow properties: Stack Overflow, Server Fault, Area 51, etc.

The "meta" link in this list points to meta.webapps.stackexchange.com, though. It that by design? It seems odd to have a list that contains both the top-level Stack Overflow properties along with the single site-specific Meta site.

Indeed, this is by design. All future Stack Exchange 2.0 network sites will have their own site-specific meta from day one, and for the rest of the life of the site.

In analogy terms, using USA politics:

  • meta.stackoverflow is Washington, D.C. -- the capital of the entire nation
  • meta.webapps is Providence, R.I. -- the capital of a small state

Wikipedia: Although the power of organized crime has greatly diminished in Rhode Island over the last 20 years, its residents are still stigmatized by popular perceptions of rampant graft and corruption that have haunted the state for decades[citation needed] -- that's WebApps for you? –  balpha Jul 2 '10 at 7:57
