Meta is the part of the site where we figure out what's going on with the other, "main" part of the site. From an individual question's closure to electing a new moderator to figuring out how to help homebrewers ask about their creations, a lot goes on here.
Roughly 0.3% of mainsite users come here and access meta. While I think we've got great discussion discussion here and thank so many of you for chiming in on topics varying from minute to strongly-felt, I'd love to see even more people aware of meta, its role, its content, and the policies on it that govern our day-to-day work on mainsite.
We can bring more attention to a meta post by making it featured which places it in the community sidebar. Only an elected moderator can add this tag, but we're interested in finding metas we should draw more attention to by featuring them. This would be a rotating scheme where we feature 1-2 metas periodically to draw more attention to them and help people learn about how our site works.
Which metas should we feature this way?
We need your assistance working out which metas we should draw attention to periodically.
If there's a meta you think should be featured below add it as a new answer here. One meta per answer. Please include a short pitch as to why you think this meta is a good way to draw a stackizen to meta for the first time.
As a voter reviewing submissions by others:
- Vote up if you think this would be a good meta to rotate through the "featured" sidebar.
- Ignore ones you don't want to see.
- Save downvotes for when you think a post would actually be bad for a mainsite user's first interaction with meta. (And please comment explaining your downvote.)
There's no magic number right now, we're making this up as we go along.
