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

I did not find a previous proposal (but it may have been already discussed):

  • The upvotes gained on the various meta subsites of the Stack Exchange network do not count for the local reputation and that's quite natural. This is clearly .

  • The is the only SE site where you build reputation by discussing the characteristics, features and bugs of stackexchange network sites.

So, I would find it good that all reputation collected on the various meta sites be added to the reputation. You would then have one "meta" reputation across all sites, but local meta discussions would stay local as needed.

@kiamlaluno...OP's taking about these kind of sites: – davidsleeps May 9 '11 at 5:44
@kiamlaluno : thanks for the edit, my title was misleading. used to be a separate site. – ogerard May 9 '11 at 6:43

I think you'd find that there would be questions asked on sites which should be moved to for discussion here...and any reputation associated would belong and be awarded here.

Combining the rep across all the metas just isn't useful or correct. There will be meta-type discussions at all the meta sites that are irrelevant to and thus gaining reputation here for those questions/answers is misleading.

my reasoning is close to yours. It is that has become a kind of higher court. Not only a meta of S.O. but a meta of all metas. So naturally some local meta questions should be moved to but it would not be absurd that reputation gained in working on the meta aspects of other S.E. sites be taken into account there. – ogerard May 9 '11 at 17:31
