More closely link the “meta-xyz” sites with the xyz sites.

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?

Yes, the problem are that the fav icons are all the same for all the betas, which is an inconvenience @Zoredache –  jmfsg Jul 27 '10 at 21:01

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... –  jmfsg 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
