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.

As first noted by Daniel Hilgarth here, the Do I have to log in or create an account? section of the Stack Overflow FAQ needs to be updated to reflect the fact that anonymous users can no longer ask questions. As far as I can tell the regular folk can't edit this part of the FAQ, so I'd be much obliged if a dev did so.

I'm not advocating the account requirement, I'm merely advocating FAQtual accuracy :)

I would love to spend a couple of seconds, but I'm not sure if I can be considered a credible and/or official source. I'll upvote instead .. –  Wivani Oct 14 '11 at 10:58

Done, thanks for the reminder, new text is:

    <p>
        You can answer and suggest edits as an anonymous user, much
        like <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org/">Wikipedia</a>. There are some
        things you won&rsquo;t be able to do on the site without registering, such as vote or ask new questions.
        But it&rsquo;s <a href="/users/login">easy to register</a>.
