Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Whenever I try to visit, I get redirected here instead. Has the site been officially taken offline? Does it exist in archival form anywhere?

I don't really have a problem with the site going away, but I had put a link to the original site proposal in my Ask Different moderator self-nomination blurb. Now that the election has started, I can't change what is now a broken link. – Kyle Cronin Mar 1 '11 at 5:07

It was decided that the number of Stack Exchange 1.0 sites has dwindled far enough now that we can shut down the old and redirect to here,

It is more correct for the network meta to be called "Meta Stack Exchange" anyway, but we aren't quite there yet. Soon!

Yay! A historic decision. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Mar 4 '11 at 2:01
...and soon is here (almost)! The future of meta.stackoverflow and meta.stackexchange. (Six to eight weeks on the dot.) – HodofHod Apr 4 '12 at 3:37
