If you have an account on Meta Stack Exchange, you have an account on its meta site.

You do not need to create a separate account for meta; once you are logged in on Meta Stack Exchange, you are also logged in and may post on its meta site.

Votes on meta do not affect your reputation; your meta reputation is the same as your reputation on Meta Stack Exchange (synchronized hourly), though you earn separate badges. You must have 5 reputation to participate on meta.

Meta SE doesn't have a meta site!

    @ChrisF I get a DNS error if I try to visit that URL ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Ah it's the comma in place of the dot. Nope, still DNS error ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • @ShadowWizard - Thanks. I searched for "whats-meta" and didn't find that. I agree it's not fixed though. Dec 28, 2015 at 12:19

    Well, it was fixed for a short while until the MSO/MSE split. I think. Dec 28, 2015 at 12:20

    Bah, considering how late this question is asked, we can get statistics in how many people actually read the help center stuff. ;)

I've removed that whole section from Meta Stack Exchange's help center. Thanks for catching that!

  • While you're at it, I think this whole section about "How to not be a spammer" is also not relevant for MSE, or any meta site. Maybe more sections are not relevant, didn't go through all of them yet. :) Dec 28, 2015 at 14:49
  • While it's true that we never, ever ever get spam here on MSE, I think customizing that page for hundreds of sites is more work than it's worth, @ShadowWizard.

  • @Shog9 the spam we get here is not self promotion inside otherwise legit answer, which is what the help section is about... and I assumed there's some template for meta sites? If not, and someone need to customize them one by one then it's really not worth such efforts. Dec 28, 2015 at 18:59
