According to the rules:

Additionally, up to 2 recent (post created in the past two weeks) posts from Meta Stack Exchange will appear in the community bulletins of all sites. These are also labeled "meta". Note that these will appear in addition to all of the other stuff listed above, so the list of community bulletin posts might appear longer than usual, depending on the individual site circumstances.

(emphasis on the important part)

According to this, in a very active meta, there should be 4 hot + 1 featured on MSE post, but reality hits hard in the face, as usual:

This may be related to this change. I've seen the same behavior on other SE sites, not only SO.

  • ... because otherwise the CB would start to get uncomfortably long?

  • @Undo "bulletin posts might appear longer than usual", is the expected behavior.

  • There is a possibility that rules (mentioned in your post) are old. CB was redesigned later and all the screenshot on that post contain only 4 CB entries (maybe its just by chance). Sep 12, 2014 at 6:25
  • @AzizShaikh nope, Laura edited them when stuff changed

  • Maybe I am missing something here, Laura's edits were made on May 8 but CB redesign was done on June 23 (after Laura's edits). Sep 12, 2014 at 13:27
  • @AzizShaikh well, Laura was part of the design team so, maybe she was just ahead of schedule?

  • You are right, it may very well be possible. However her comment here gives a different picture. Anyways, will look forward to an update from the SE team. Sep 12, 2014 at 13:49
