What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

I look at the Stack Exchange hot questions list fairly regularly, and I can't remember ever seeing a meta.stackoverflow question. Is meta.SO blacklisted (if so, why?), or are there simply not any questions here that are hot enough to get onto the list?

There are plenty of hot questions on MSO. But the sites ultimately are about quickly getting great answers to good questions related to the subject at hand. MSO and the Meta sites are not about that. They're about the inner workings of the network and its communities which, while they have great and essential value, are not the ultimate focus of the network.

No metas are considered for the hot question list.

Why doesn't this question show up on the first page of results when searching Meta for "meta hot questions"? –  Jim Jan 2 '13 at 3:53
It didn't @Jim because it wasn't tagged hot-questions, which is why I missed it as well. This has now been fixed by Tim. –  ben is uǝq backwards Jan 27 '13 at 0:39
