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

I'm not even sure suggestions are allowed on Meta, please forgive my newbie-ness.

Just a small sentence change in the question footer that shouldn't be hard but has me wincing all the time:

Browse other questions tagged ... or ask your own question.

But what if this is my question?

Browse other questions tagged ... or ask another question.

Pseudo-code "fix" (if anyone else on this planet cares):

ask " + ((IsLoggedIn && Question.Asker == User) ? "another" : "your own") + "question."

What I've noticed in reading this question is you failed to reasonably say "why" this needs to be done. Surely you're familiar with the five whys ... I don't think you need to do all five but some "why is this a problem" answers would be a good idea. – jcolebrand Jan 4 '11 at 3:40
As an addition, the "Know someone who can answer?" blurb that's shown when there are no answers doesn't make much sense when it's your question either, since if you knew someone who could answer the question then it's unlikely that you would have asked it (or at least not have an answer to post for it). – Tim Stone Jan 4 '11 at 3:46
Welcome to Meta, Lazlo! Don't worry, you're in the right place. Suggestions are a pretty big part of what goes on here. – Pops Jan 4 '11 at 14:03

That message is not really for the person posting the question. If you post a question you should have already browsed other questions with similar tags.
