Often I have a question, in a specific area (say Math SE or English SE) that is appropriate for the child meta of that site.

Then I realize it is not particular to the meta for that site but for Meta for all sites (like this question itself; I wanted a link to Meta Stack Exchange from meta.english, but realized no meta sites had such a link).

Wouldn't it be nice to have a link in all meta sites to Meta?

  • I found a duplicate question Can we link meta.SO from meta.x.SO?, but no answer there. As noted in waiwai's answer, there -is- a link that I want, but I find its usability pretty deficient/hidden.

The sixth link in the list of sites in the footer of full SE sites and their corresponding meta site (but not beta sites) is the MSO link.

    OK...so it's there...but it's not noticeable, so it's not particularly useful.

  • It's useful now that you know it's there ;) All kidding aside, I think it would help to maybe put it in the header too. Also, keep in mind that the "StackExchange" -> "All Sites" drop down will have a link to it too.

  • @jmort253 True about the drop-down. But, depending on how many sites you're on and the rep you have across those sites and MSO, it's quite possible that it's going to be buried quite deeply.
