Just out of curiosity: If a new user can't find out how to get to the Meta site, where is he supposed to ask? On the main site, or on Meta? (I didn't see any directions on the What's Meta page, but it was too long to read the whole thing. At one time, before the site was redesigned, the Meta button was not so well hidden.)

  • I couldn't find meta on the app this morning until I added it to some sort of list... it's fairly easy on the website, I'd say. – Molag Bal May 16 '16 at 6:29
  • I don't know. I guess clicking "StackExchange" is easy. I have no idea whether it was easy for me four years ago, and the site design was different back then anyway. – Molag Bal May 16 '16 at 6:33

    I'd think the bigger problem is a new user realizing that a "meta site" exists and what kind of questions should go there...which is why we have a dedicated migration path to meta for when newbies mistakenly ask meta questions on main. Problem already solved, maybe? – Ixrec May 16 '16 at 6:39
  • I'm inclined to agree with Ixrec about users finding out about Meta when they ask a Meta question. – Adamant May 16 '16 at 6:50

    Am I the only one who sees a prominent "Featured on Meta" box on the right hand side of my screen? – Valorum May 16 '16 at 8:25
  • @user14111 - If they RTFM, they'll learn about Meta that way. – Valorum May 16 '16 at 10:06

There are a number of ways to find & get to the Meta site.

  • There's a link in the SE drop-down.

  • If you visit your user profile, it's there.

  • It's in the drop-down under "help".

  • Interestingly, there's also a link to Meta under the "feedback" button at the bottom of the front page.

  • -1 because the big red arrows go RLRRL instead of alternating RLRLR :) – Ward - Reinstate Monica May 16 '16 at 16:40
