Earlier today, I was trying to leave a comment asking a new user to open a post here on [meta] for an edit to the [FAQ]. I noticed that using the [meta-tag:discussion] syntax for an automatically created link doesn't expand to a link to the meta page for that tag if it's in the comments on the main site.

I experimented a little and found that the [tag:...] syntax works on both the main site and on meta, but the [meta-tag:...] syntax only works on meta. This discrepancy feels odd to me, so...

Please allow [meta-tag:...] in comments on the main site expand to the appropriate tag page on meta.
