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.

Or is this only for discussion and not, e.g., bug reporting?

If you see the FAQ's on Area 51 it says the following:

What kind of questions can I ask here?

The Area 51 Discussion Zone is for users of Area 51 to discuss new proposal ideas, existing proposals, and anything else having to do with the new site creation process on Area 51. For example,

  1. Should we merge the _____ and _____ proposals?
  2. Do we really need another site about _____?
  3. Would a site about _____ work in the Stack Exchange network?
  4. What category does the _____ proposal belong in?

What kind of questions should I not ask here?

You should only ask questions about proposals. You should not ask questions about the site itself, like bugs, feature requests, or support issues. Those meta questions should be asked on our meta-discussion site.

So to report bugs on Area 51 you have to report them over here.

Hope that helps.

OK, so I had to read the manual... :) Thanks. But that begs another question - why is Area 51 the only site to split bug reports and discussion? –  Wikis Jan 27 '11 at 22:42

@Wikis Because this place remains where you ask about engine stuff. Kinda like what you're doing now, in fact. ♪ The "discussion" is not to hold discussion about Area 51 itself, but about the proposals. It's to give a better form for the users of Area 51 and potential sites to be able to communicate with each other about the proposals. Comments during the definition phase were weak, and there was absolutely no way to communicate during commitment. This is to ease that process better. –  Grace Note Jan 27 '11 at 22:45
    
@Grace - Great, that's clear now, thank you. –  Wikis Jan 27 '11 at 22:47
