Change name of "suggestions" to "meta"

Post  _s on Sun Oct 07, 2012 1:44 pm

A meta section would be a place to put suggestions, as well as post general things about the site that aren't strictly suggestions, i.e. articles about writing, questions about what we are...
This could lead to too much meta discussion, but I have things I want to post about the site that don't really fit anywhere right now.

That's much more confusing than Suggestions & Feedback.

I added a meta section, and someone put an AP and LD thread in it. Can anyone tell me what meta is?

Meta could be used as explaning something that is abstract to the related topic. It doesnt really fit in, but still adds to the topic/genre in general.

Edt: Saw that you added a miscellaneous section, this could be seen as a meta section, since it takes care of all the posts that doesnt generally fit in anywhere. Also better to have since "meta" could lead to confusion for some.

Meta is a common abbreviation for "metaphysical," so thats probably why someone put that there.

Ohh, I see. Thanks, I'm changing it to that at least for my purposes. Haha, thank you.

Oh sorry, I meant meta as in self-referential, a place to post things referring to the site. They had meta threads on /x/. /q/ is the meta board. That could mean suggestions, but it could also mean articles on writing, on critiquing, on forum culture, etc.

It's a bit confusing that there's also metaphysics and metacognition, things that would probably fit in western philosophy.
