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

I originally posted this on the Programmers Meta here, but as @MichaelMrozek pointed out, the same typo is present in all sites' messages.

The banner message for new/not-logged-in users reads

Welcome to Q&A site for [site-specific description]...

There should be an article in there:

Welcome to a Q&A site for...

Or, if we want to be fancier:

Welcome to the super-mega-ultimate best-on-the-Interblags [site topic] Q&A site!!!!eleven!!

Reference image (ignore the freehand text, I'm reusing an earlier screenshot (hey, I'm being "green")) available here.

banner covers up important things

Jeff has answered the original post on Meta Programmers.

Short version: it's fixed.

Slightly less short version: banners now read "Welcome to Q&A for [topic/audience]." This has been implemented systemwide according to a few spot checks.
