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

Will the SE meta sites ever get a chat option?

Right on time, we have another chat server (not meta, though - chat is for both parent and meta). You've got to find which one, though ;p – Marc Gravell Sep 10 '10 at 8:26
@Marc, I follow balpha on twitter so I already know ;) – juanformoso Sep 10 '10 at 12:51

No. Meta.SO is an exception (like in so many other cases).

For all other instances of chat, the main site will be considered the parent. So there will be, but no

I don't think there needs to be one chat for discussing the site's topic (web applications) and one chat for discussing the site ( This can very well happen on one single chat site.

That said, Juan is correct in that we hope to roll out the first "normal" chat site next week.
