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

With all these wonderful new StackExchange sites, I find I'm not as vigilant about participating in Meta as I was when I only visited one or two.

Now that the meta-sites are more integrated with the parent sites, I think it would be nice to see some notification on the parent site when you have responses/notifications on the associated Meta site. It could be as simple as having the a separate envelope icon to light up for Meta-notifications.

Anyone with me?

I just use the chrome notifier You can add whatever site you like. – Zoredache Jul 27 '10 at 20:52
Yes, the problem are that the fav icons are all the same for all the betas, which is an inconvenience @Zoredache – juanformoso Jul 27 '10 at 21:01

@Juan, the problem is, as the availability of public and private betas increase, so does my consumption of Ritalin. Enough is enough, please, dear God .. Nooooooooooo! – Tim Post Jul 27 '10 at 21:57

I visit meta quite often, so I don't find it necessary.

Furthermore, I think it would bother me, diverting my focus from the parent site when I'm at the parent site.

I like having them separated, and even though it's highly encouraged, it's not mandatory to participate in meta.
I would recommend visiting meta more.

I visit this meta often, but I tend to forget about it on the other sites – Michael Mrozek Jul 27 '10 at 20:48
Well, I'm only committed to only one other site currently so perhaps I'm not the most common example... – juanformoso Jul 27 '10 at 20:50
Don't forget about Super User and Server Fault, which also have their own meta sites - it's a LOT of meta – Jared Harley Jul 27 '10 at 21:22
