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 trying out the new discussion feature at Area 51. I added a new discussion on my proposal but I can't find it under the proposal. Why is that?

The proposal must be linked to from the question or answer body. It works the same way as Linked Posts, i.e. it searches the question body for links and adds relations when it finds them.
