What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

The other metas (MSF, MSU) have a link to the parent site's profile, why don't we have one here?

MSO is a different Meta site. It's Meta Central for the whole system, and specifically Meta for SO. It was the first Meta, and has always required it's own profile.

I would be nice if there was a link to the main profile (even if we had to add it ourselves) – NullUserException อ_อ Aug 19 '10 at 0:55
@NullUserException - An account of meta doesn't require you have an account on SO :) Also even if you do, it may not be associated, have the same username, etc...you're actually a different user here – Nick Craver Aug 19 '10 at 1:09
But isn't it possible to link the information, so you don't have to repeat it on your profile page? – user3305035 Feb 13 '14 at 9:05
@user3305035, yes, you can have one profile that works across all the Stack Exchange sites. Click on the network profile link in your profile here. – Lance Roberts Feb 13 '14 at 14:01
