The original proposal seemed to be to hold the AMA itself on meta, which isn't what meta is for. If there is an AMA, it should be on chat. I also note that the AMA on Physics seems to have run monthly but then had a hiatus of several months. Physics is a rather larger community than ours (they have 133 users who've earnt 100+ reputation so far this month; ...

The SE platform is not a good fit for Meta SE. Nearly every feature has been proposed before (but these posts can be hard to find) and repostings are usually immediately closed as duplicate. The fact that situations, requirements and policies change (in particular from the Time Before SE 2.0 to now) is often ignored. Also, SE prouds itself by disabling ...

In fact, you did submit such an ad, and it is up and available for voting. You haven't been prevented at all. As far as your complaints that Raphael has not let you post such an ad: those complaints seem ...

We're not really sure why it wasn't turned on for Meta - it should have been enabled here when it was enabled on main. It's enabled now. :)

Meta has question closure and tag wikis like anywhere else. Why would we turn the queues off here?

Meta sites just use the SE software (with some modifications), for better or worse. So it figures there'd be a review queue. I agree that they could be turned off here. They are probably necessary on sites with more Meta volume, though. meta.SO, for instance, has more traffic than our main site.

I look at Meta Stack Overflow sometimes. I just ignore the content that's specific to Stack Overflow, it's no big deal.

I didn't even know that Meta Stack Overflow wasn't just the meta site of Stack Overflow.
