Now that there is a meta site about Area 51, are question about Area 51 still on-topic on Meta Stack Overflow?

1 Answer 1


We are trying to contain the Area 51 discussions inside Area 51. That's why we added the area51-meta tag.

There may be rare issues that involve the entire network, but for the most part, Area 51 discussions should be posted here.

  • @Robert - Does that include support issues for Area 51? I just flagged this question discuss.area51.stackexchange.com/questions/1623/… for admin help as being off topic. Would appreciate some feedback if this is the correct action?

  • @xiaohouzi79: This could go on either meta-SO or here. Dealing with user accounts is a network core-code issue so it is just as appropriate for meta SO. I don't always expect everyone to understand these subtleties, so I would direct the problem the appropriate people if it appeared here (which I have already done). Commented May 2, 2011 at 13:47
  • @xiaohouzi79 To notice that the report you are referring is about an issue only present on Area 51. In fact, all my account on the other SE sites are updated; the only site where I see the issue is on Area 51, both the main site and the discussion site.
