Honestly, navigation through Area 51 is a bit confusing and seems to be much different from the other SE sites.
The feature that is very lacking is the footer with all the sites you are subscribed to so that a user can easily return to a different SE site. This one really bugs me. Can this be easily fixed?
Also, unlike all the other sites there is no "meta" site to add comments specifically about that site.
Again Area 51 seems out of sync with the other SE sites.
