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

It's a little confusing that the logo says "meta stackoverflow" but the site serves as a discussion site for StackOverflow, ServerFault, and SuperUser. Shouldn't this site get a name and logo that reflects the true intent or, at least, doesn't obscure it.

One possibility:, which seems to be availble.

If the suggestion to change the name/logo gets some traction maybe we can have a poll question on the new name.

What do you suggest? – Ian Elliott Jul 22 '09 at 16:54
UserVoice? just kidding. I'll try to come up with something. – tvanfosson Jul 22 '09 at 17:06
I agree. The theme and logo were created a bit hastily, and while the theme has received a few tweaks, the logo has remained the same since launch. (Not that I would object to a few more tweaks, namely some color, but that's a different discussion) – Kyle Cronin Jul 22 '09 at 17:44
I suggest Meta StackExchange with domain Is't StackExchange the name of the whole group? – Eddie C. Jan 17 '14 at 1:15

I think it's from when the engine was called stackoverflow engine (instead of stackexchange)

But yeah, I suppose it could be changed now

I thought the original intent was to provide a place to discuss SO, but the obvious extension was to make it cover all three sites rather than have a separate meta site for each one. – tvanfosson Jul 22 '09 at 16:56
