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

I noticed that my user page on the meta site for the gadgets SE doesn't have an accounts tab, but the equivalent page on the main site does. I found the same on Web Apps and for other users on both sites.

Why would the meta site and the main site be different?

Correct, see the meta /faq for why this would be.

(hint: there is no reputation on the per-site child meta sites.)
