How do you expect users to:
- Know that a site's meta-site exists (and what it's for)?
- Find the hyperlink to the meta-site?
I know it exists, of course, and how to get there; I'm wondering how (or even whether) you expect new or naive users to do that.
I think there isn't a link to Meta from the main site, am I right (except one link in the "list of all 171 Stack Exchange sites" drop-down menu on the toolbar)?
Sometimes I tell people to post a question on Meta instead of on the main site -- I don't realise that they may not know that Meta exists, and that if they do (because they've been there before) they don't know how to get there (because they haven't yet investigated everything on the toolbar).
