What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

The "About page" for Area 51 only has this placeholder content:

About Stack Overflow Proposals

Shouldn't it be more elaborate? If not, then I think it should be

About Stack Exchange Proposals.

or similar.

Is this "page" even linked from anywhere?

I don't know about internally, but I link to it on drmortensen.eu/jump.html, like for /search, /editing-help, /reputation and /faq. –  Peter Mortensen Jul 17 '10 at 11:06
@Peter Mortensen - Then why not remove that link on your page? –  William Hilsum Jul 17 '10 at 16:28
@Wil: it is only there in the first place because the link is very easy to guess. All the other sites have a page on "/about". Nearly anybody could guess the link. If the About page is not going to be filled in with information then I think it should be invalidated (generate a 404). –  Peter Mortensen Jul 17 '10 at 17:07
@Peter Mortensen - As Jeff said, this isn't an actual page on that site that is linked from anything - You just assumed it would be there... This really isn't a bug. Granted they can delete the page, but why should they!? It is most likely there so they can edit and create an about page if/when they ever want to. –  William Hilsum Jul 17 '10 at 19:24
