I'm just wondering exactly what meta is used for. What questions should be asked in it?

When you ask a question in meta, you have to tag either "bug, feature-request, discussion, or support". So does that mean that meta is for improving the gaming stackexchange site?

If you could tell me about it or direct me to somewhere that I can find out more, that would be great. Thanks!

I think the meta's About page summarizes it pretty well; also take a look at meta's FAQ. In short, Arqade is a site for asking and answering questions about video games, and Meta Arqade is a site for asking and answering questions about the Arqade site.

  • This is pretty much it. I'd add however, that some of the rules are a bit more... fast and loose on meta - particularly those regarding subjectivity and 'discussion' oriented questions. Where those are to be avoided on Arqade, on Meta, they're encouraged - so long as they're about Arqade, the Stack Exchange Engine, the Community here, or something similar, and not about your awesome theory for what the ending of Mass Effect really means. – LessPop_MoreFizz Oct 22 '12 at 21:50
  • @LessPop_MoreFizz true dat. We should also probably mention that votes mean something else on meta than on the main site: here on meta it's okay to vote on things based on whether or not you agree with them, even if they are otherwise of high quality and show research effort. – Oak Oct 22 '12 at 22:02
