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.

I was thinking of adding a note to http://meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges/moderator-tools about not deleting questions closed as duplicates which is applicable across all sites. If I edit one page will that change get duplicated across all sites or not?

I don't want to cut and paste the edit lots of times plus I don't have rights to edit that page on all sites.

The change is something along the lines of:

It's a good idea to keep questions closed as duplicates on the site. They provide additional routes to the answer. Think long and hard before voting to delete.

Gah, just went to edit and found that Shog9 had beaten me to it - by several days! Must have skimmed over that bit when reading the page last night. At least the question was useful to establish the facts. –  ChrisF Oct 29 '10 at 15:30

Right now the intent is for the priv wikis to be default text across sites so:

  • don't add anything specific to meta.so
  • make sure what you do add, works as generalized advice for every site in the network

I'll have a further think about the wording to make sure it's clear. –  ChrisF Oct 28 '10 at 22:48
Am I missing something? Does editing one edit them all? –  Tshepang Jan 9 '11 at 18:36
@tshepang meta.so privilege wikis are the "master" copies and are periodically pushed out to the rest of the network –  Jeff Atwood Jan 9 '11 at 21:24
