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

"meta" makes sense as url for general discussion about the site and engine, but not as the primary mechanism for feedback, bug reports, or feature requests.

With that in mind, should redirect to

In the same spirit, I'd also like to have and to redirect here. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jun 29 '09 at 20:09
Shouldn't redirect to ? – Rowland Shaw Jun 29 '09 at 20:10
@rowland: they tried that, and there were... problems. Anyway, the uservoice site is going away. – Joel Coehoorn Jun 29 '09 at 20:14
@joel IMHO, uservoice worked better for feature request/bug reports. There do seem to be "quite a few" puerile questions, answers and comments on here, with few with the reputation to clean up – Rowland Shaw Jun 29 '09 at 20:29
I agree with pesto, what about and and ?? – Jeff Atwood Jun 30 '09 at 3:26

I Agree. "meta" doesn't tell me that this is for feedback anyway. I had to go here and check it out to figure out what it was about.

I'd say this just leads to confusion, why have two URL's going to the same site?

The ~only link to here says "feedback always welcome" (I doubt many people will randomly type "" into their address bar). Plus the existing questions should make it clear what this site is for.

I guess the FAQ or About page should really mention it can be used for feedback or feature-requests a bit more explicitly (than just "discussion")..

Two links to the same site does not cause confusion, much the same as owning foo.(com|net|org) and pointing them all to the same site. – Justin Dearing Jul 27 '09 at 11:46
