Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Biostar existed previously, so the error message is incorrect.

Update: OK, so it seems to be a Stack Exchange 1.0 site, but if I got confused, so will a lot of other people. It doesn't explicitly say that there may have been a SE 1.0 site that has since been deleted.
