What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

I just noticed that there is no /privileges page for the per-site metas. Same for meta.superuser.com/privileges. Is this an oversight or is there a reason behind it? It seems to me that they should have their own since reputation requirements are different from the parent site.

We don't want another set of shadow world meta /privilege faqs to maintain, update, and validate for accuracy.

The parent site /privilege faqs should suffice, and the /faq on the per-site meta does cover the actual reputation values themselves.

Well, right now, Meta.Gaming's privileges do not appear to match Gaming's privileges... unless you're telling me I should file another bug about that. To be more specific, I have the Close option on Meta.Gaming but not Gaming. –  Powerlord Oct 14 '10 at 19:59
    
@RBemrose It's specific to Meta Gaming. I've already reported it. The other 3 live sites do not have this issue. –  Grace Note Oct 14 '10 at 20:34

I am guessing there aren't privilege pages for the per site metas as the reputation is the same as the parent site. Therefore I would assume if you have the privilege on the parent site then you have the privilege on the meta.

In that case the page should redirect to the parent privileges page. –  ChrisF Oct 14 '10 at 19:31
