Looking at the posts over the past couple of weeks, it's evident that getting more people to visit meta, taking a little time to inform themselves and to see what others' concerns and opinions are, would lead to a better community.
As I recall, when I first joined History beta, it took a while for to realise the relevance and real purpose of meta. It's just not very visible.
Is there anything we can do about this? By this I mean, what scope do we have for 'advertising' it, even if that just means having the word 'meta' in a large font and more prominently displayed (but hopefully we could do more than that)?
