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

At least they're writing "ServerFault" right next to it. – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 17 '10 at 11:15

All content is licensed via CC-Wiki and, as such, can be included in other works (like that web site) as long as they correctly attribute it to SO and you:

  • Visually indicate that the content is from Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow, Server Fault, or Super User in some way. It doesn’t have to be obnoxious; a discreet text blurb is fine. Check, sort of, shows ServerFault when the question is from SO

  • Hyperlink directly to the original question on the source site (e.g., http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345) Check

  • Show the author names for every question and answer Check

  • Hyperlink each author name directly back to their user profile page on the source site (e.g., http://stackoverflow.com/users/12345/username) Check

The only thing that is questionable is the link to the author, it's almost the same color as the background. – HoLyVieR Aug 17 '10 at 12:32
    
@Holyvier: But they do also have a link on the avatar. – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 17 '10 at 12:45
    
@Bobby The avatar links to the question on the same site. – HoLyVieR Aug 17 '10 at 13:29
    
@Holyvier: Oooohhhhh... – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 17 '10 at 13:59
