What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Apparenly "Stackers" was the early accepted answer for SO, and I'm sure there are "fault tolerants", "meta junkies", and "super friends" out there as well. But with the upcoming dev days and such, what are we going to call those "all purpose" folks that are trying to thrive in the whole community?

Flow jockeys? S-Heads? SCubies? (bad variant of S Cubed combined with too much Scooby-Doo my kids are watching lately)

Somtehing else?

I thought it was "Al"? –  Dillie-O Jul 27 '09 at 17:44

Oh, good lord. Please, no.

The day someone starts labeling any Stackoverflow user as "Stacker" or a "Stackee" or a Something-Or-Other Badgie... is the day I start anonomous-izing my account. Can you say "pop-culture-burnout, jumping-the-shark"?

I am Spartacus.

Oh and I always said the proper term is "nerds" and then people will follow the pattern and correct me declaring the correct term is "geeks"

@Pesto: That's what you get when nerds and geeks interbreed. –  gnostradamus Jul 27 '09 at 19:17

@gnovice: Don't be silly. What are the chances of a nerd or a geek breeding? –  Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 27 '09 at 19:27
    
@Pesto: Well who the hell else are nerds and geeks going to breed with other than each other?! –  gnostradamus Jul 29 '09 at 2:55

I like to refer to 'us' as SOpedians.

Stack Overflow is supposed to have this wiki-like attribute, so...hehe?

That looks too similar to Soapians ... –  Tyler Carter Jul 27 '09 at 17:42
    
And? Sorry...not getting your point. –  Stu Thompson Jul 27 '09 at 17:49
