Do my questions/participation on both X.stackexchange and meta.X.stackexchange count when evaluating whether I've hit my commitment mark for the site ?

  • Since meta questions/answers don't even award you points in beta, I would think not....

Only participation on X.stackexchange.com counts toward fulfilling your commitment there.

However, if you would like to be a moderator on the site, know that we heavily weight participation on meta.X.stackexchange.com when evaluating suitable candidates.

So there are other benefits to participating on meta.

  • @JeffAtwood is this still true 2+ years later? There's been some discussion elsewhere that it may have changed. Is there any official answer to this question? Seems that lots of people are curious about it. It could perhaps be considered a frequently-asked-question. May 9, 2013 at 1:25
  • I agree that it would be nice if this were answered directly in the FAQ.
