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 don't mean the rep has to always add to the parent site, but during the private beta as a bit of a reward for helping out getting things going, up to the daily rep-cap.

Yes, I'm being whiny since I'm helping in a private beta. It doesn't have to be retroactive, but it could be going forward to help others.

Your reward for helping in a private beta is the beta succeeds and the site you like launches :). I could see maybe having a badge for getting so many upvotes on meta during the length of the beta, but altering how rep works for a single week is kind of weird – Michael Mrozek Jan 6 '11 at 3:44
hahahahah, very funny @Michael ;) – jcolebrand Jan 6 '11 at 3:46

Drip-feeding rep from the meta sends the wrong idea.

Spend less time chewing the fat about the site and oil up to get down and dirty with the questions and answers that are to serve as the repository of all that is unholy and cooked.

Post and focus primarily on where it matters, where it's most visible to the drive-by readers and wayward eyeballs.

The metas are there to help you help yourselves in carving it up in guiding the light.

At the end of the private beta phase, your reward is the satisfaction that you were among the first to help push through another potential Stack Exchange site only forever ago sitting in the bowels of Area 51.

Trust me I see the logic presented here. I still stand by my request, but I don't anticipate seeing it happen. – jcolebrand Jan 6 '11 at 4:23
Were you in the middle of reading a medical textbook when you wrote this? – Aarobot Jan 10 '11 at 21:38
@Aarobot I think he was in the middle of reading Jack the Ripper ;) – user223277 Jul 31 '13 at 6:26
