Can we give an easier path for new users to find meta? I feel like it is a little obscured.
Visiting as a new user
I happened to go to stackoverflow on a computer which did not automatically log me in yesterday. Before you respond "What is the world coming to"; I know, it was foolish and childish of me to not have provided my login information on my friends device when I first created my account here.
Too Involved To Find The Meta Site
On the front page for new users with no accounts (or for users not logged in) the word "meta" literally does not exist (although there is a "feedback" link in the footer which points to meta). Clicking "Tell me more" takes you to a visually pleasing interface, but it still does not contain "meta" at all. Click #2 will land you at the Help Center if you have lucked out to find this path as a user probably a little intimidated by the size of the site. From there, a single link exists What is "meta"? Click #3 to enter this page and find an inline link in the text to a meta search which shows questions tagged with faq.
Meta contains a wealth of knowledge that would help new users, and which continues to help longstanding users
It would be very helpful to include a link to this list of frequently asked meta questions somewhere in the tour, perhaps also with a mention of
meta so that users can browse questions about using the site. Perhaps something like this:
