It seems easy to go from Beta to Meta. But I'm wasting a lot of time to find an easy way to return to Beta.

Would it be possible to have a button that allows fast return to Beta (or what it will be in future)?

The fastest way I know if is to click on the "three part bubble" on the very top right of the Meta page, which opens a drop down menu, then click "Bioacoustics" on the top row and you'll be taken back to the main page.

If you're into keyboard shortcuts, here's how you can use 'em:

You can switch to the meta site (and vice versa) with no clicks at all, using keyboard shortcuts:

  1. From your profile settings, enable keyboard shortcuts.

  2. From anywhere on the site, you can easily go to the meta site (and vice versa) using G+M.

Here's a demonstration of this method on Super User:
