During this period of moderator selection (nomination/primary/election), one of the questions for the nominees was:
While M&TV has a large userbase and many visitors, the meta participation is relatively low and discussions are usually held within a small active core group. Do you see this as a problem? If yes, how would you try to improve the situation as a moderator?
Which question I answered ad nauseum and then again spurred another spirited debate (and understanding session) on the electoral chat between myself and two other regulars to M&TV. It seems that Meta is more important to some than it is to others on the site.
- My question to the userbase is, why is the Meta site important (or not) to you?
- Why do you come to the Meta site and how often do you come?
- Does the Featured on Meta heading which appears on the right side of the site entice you to come to the Meta (and to what extent)?
- What else would entice you more to come to the Meta (What would you like to see here)?
It seems that I do not have as high of opinion of the Meta site as I should, so help me to understand.
