Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When I posted one question to the webapp-meta site, I did not see the responses for a long time, as there is nothing on the webapp site to say I have a response on the meta site.

This needs to be sorted out, otherwise the Meta sites will be a lot less effective.

Please note I think a “smaller” solution is needed than: "Alerts about activity on associated accounts"

I quite agree with that. If the Meta and "parent sites" are closely linked, especially with reputation, it would be nice if getting a notification about activity on Meta.

It doesn't have to be a complete notification with details, just a "there are notifications pending on Meta", inviting to switch to it.

Just putting envelope (with meta has notifications/answers) next to the link to the related Meta site may be all that is needed. – Ian Ringrose Jul 27 '10 at 9:45
