I'm confused. I'm new to the meta, and I get things are different here, but I'm not exactly sure how different they are. Over here the question was answered by the person asking within the room that's normally reserved for explaining the question. And then in a field that's normally for giving the answer is a post that would normally be a comment. and then as comments on that is a discussion / banter like you'd see it in a forum. Why exactly isn't the meta aspect of rpg.stackexchange a forum?
Would it be useful (and possible) to create the option to "post" instead of "ask" in the context of the meta? Or is that already the case and it's just called "ask question" because of the way the software works? Here it was said the meta not a like forum... Can someone make sense of the first link and what happened there?
