Stack Overflow Q&A thingy

So based upon Rob Conley's say-so I've committed to giving Stack Overflow a try.  Rob describes it as crowd sourcey type Q & A site with a rigorous reputation system for both the questioners and answerers.  It started out as a service programmers but now they're looking to expand to other areas.  If you'd like to join in the fun, follow this link.  The RPG section of the site will open only after a sufficient number of people have committed to asking and/or answering at least 10 questions over three months.  That didn't sound like a great burden to me.


  1. Thanks for spreading the word. From my experience on the regular Stack Overflow trying to gain good reputation can be addicting.

  2. Also you can see it at work as we both got rep points for referring people.

  3. I'll check it out.

    I'm an active user of StackOverflow (I'm a Java programmer), but I haven't taken a look at StackExchange yet.

    It's based on the StackOverflow model, which is very good.

  4. I committed but have no experience with Stack Overflow. How the heck do you even begin to post questions, vote on topicality, answer things, etc? I am banging my head against an interesting wall here... thanks (if you see this).
