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

Could the "Area 51" link in the footer of the site link to the proposal for said site, rather than to the Area 51 home page? Perhaps just when the site is in public/private beta?

I've had a quick look through the FAQ on and couldn't see a back-link there, hence suggesting that the Area 51 link in the footer might be a good place to put one. This would be useful as the stats page (in this instance which shows how the site is doing is something that some users of Stack Exchange sites could find useful. Whilst the statistics (questions per day, etc.) are shown on the homepage of each Stack Exchange site, how they represent how well the site is doing isn't.

Area51 link in footer didn't change, but now, you have a back link to proposals on all beta sites.

See - Can we have a link to the Area51 proposal on beta sites?
