What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm curious how it's determined which questions appear there. I checked meta, and it's neither hot nor active. I used unix.SE to check.

Note that the featured tag causes a question to be featured on the meta house ad.

The featured tag will be auto-stripped from any post after 30 days to prevent too much staleness.

The rest is driven from the weekly tab, and if any room is left over (there are only 5 slots), the hot tab.

This doesn't appear to be the case... meta.stackoverflow.com/posts/7046/revisions has had the featured tag for months for example –  Andreas Bonini Feb 3 '11 at 12:49
    
@kop only applies to per-site metas not meta.so –  Jeff Atwood Feb 3 '11 at 12:54
