What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

It could be a good idea to have little red question marks by some of the areas of the profile/activity page that you could click on to get meta threads related to that area.

So, if I'm wondering about what does that whole flag weight thing mean, I click on the little red question mark in its vicinity, and I get a list of pertinent meta information (similar to the box that comes up with "related questions" after I typed in the title of my post today).

I can surmise that the more experienced members might be annoyed with further screen clutter, but I think it would help those of us learning the ropes to connect the material available on the two sites together.

As an aside: sometimes it helps to limit your search to posts that have been tagged faq, like by searching for "faq flag weight" or even simply "faq flag weight". –  Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:27

To reduce chance of "might be annoyed with further screen clutter" it's possible to implement such feature only for <1K rep users or something like this. :) –  Shadow Wizard Apr 11 '11 at 7:31
