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

Sometimes I have this very strange type of laziness where I'll hunt for a link to where I want to go rather than just typing it into the address bar. Just now, I couldn't find a link from back to

I think it makes sense to link back to the main site in case someone lands on the Meta site from a Google search and doesn't understand what everyone's talking about.

Edit: Of course, I just now found the "parent site" link at the very bottom. Maybe it should be more prominent?

There is now a meta link at the top of the page on all sites. (link will say "parent" if you are on the meta already)

This appears to have been fixed with the rollout of the network-wide banner.

It took this question for me to spot the "parent site" link.

Shouldn't that link be

  1. At the the top of the page, and
  2. Labelled with the name of the site?

As it stands it is not really discoverable.
