I've noticed that there are a low number of users on Stack Exchange Meta, compared to other SE sites, such as Stack Overflow. Do the Stack Exchange Team ever advertise this site?

New features are often written about here, e.g. the follow feature. When a question here is marked as it appears on all sites in the Featured on Meta area. Every site displays up to two of these questions together with its own site specific questions. You can find that on the top right of this page.

This is where you see this site's featured questions appear on Stack Overflow for instance:

We need to be careful with too much advertising though as this site is for questions about

  • Stack Exchange
  • Promotions & Advertising
  • Support, feature requests, or bug reports for the core Stack Exchange engine that powers all Stack Exchange websites

We already get a lot of questions from people who are lost and think this is a good place to ask any question under the sun.


Yes; Meta posts are shown in the sidebar widget on most Q&A pages on all other sites in the network:

Meta is also featured now and then as 'Today's Featured Site' on the Stack Exchange homepage:

  • I suspect the last part is a bug, or at least an overlook. (i.e. not intended, since for example Meta is excluded from HNQ). Apr 27, 2020 at 18:23
