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

So I see that there is finally a master list of sites that I suggested a while ago (thanks!), but I just thought I might give some suggestions on how it could be improved. Since the status-completed tag was added 20 hours ago I might be just saying things that might be implemented soon, but I just want to get all of them out

  • Link it in the FAQ - Maybe after the initial list of obvious alternatives, why not say

    Lack of mentioning this will just give us the origional problem of people not knowing other sites exist.

  • Give it a link at the bottom of the page - This might be an issue, as space is already short. But would a small More... link work?

  • List stackapps, SO Careers, Area 51, and DocType (sister section perhaps?). They are all worthy of mention
  • Put Meta's next to site, as well as an explanation of meta at the bottom - This would be something useful, as right now most people don't know what Meta is
  • Put chat next to SO - Why not? Need to be registered and have reputation anyway
  • Give it an RSS feed - What would be the quickest way to spread the word that a new site is out? RSS! If you have hundreds of people subscribe, and a beta for Military Hardware is created, you now have tons of new people! And now your not relying solely on people that constantly follow Area 51 (IE me, because I can only commit to 3 things, and such things take a while, and the notifications are a little spammy). The half an hour of writing a RSS feed would tremendously help out any new site.

Just some suggestions. Thoughts?

I believe many of these are completed, including

  • linking to /sites in the faq

  • a rss feed for the site list

.. any other thoughts?

Wow, I think that just about covers it. Adding meta and chat to the bottom would eat too much space now that I look at it. – TheLQ Apr 13 '11 at 22:03
