Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have a great idea for the company behind Stack Overflow and I would like to discuss it with Jeff Atwood.

How can I do that?

Post it here. If it's really a good idea, he'll see it – Adam Rackis Nov 30 '11 at 16:25
There's always profanity. – Pops Nov 30 '11 at 16:28
...or sustained trolling: "Jeff has my phone number, and he has called me before" – Pops Nov 30 '11 at 16:39
THAT sounds super cool awesome! Can you share it with us? I bet as soon as we hear it you'll be offered a position on the team! Supercool! – Won't Nov 30 '11 at 16:43
Post a pluralization bug report. – Robert Harvey Nov 30 '11 at 16:44
@Robert I just have to know, what's the pluralization bug thing about? – Mr.Wizard Nov 30 '11 at 16:57
Why don't you go to his house?… – Marcelo Nov 30 '11 at 17:02

I've already told him my idea of a one time credit card charge of $19.95 to bypass the quality filter. I hope they cut me in on the deal. – jonsca Nov 30 '11 at 17:31
@balpha -- how is this norepro?? this is not a bug or anything.... – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Nov 30 '11 at 18:25
Love the status-norepro tag, that's classic! – The Unhandled Exception Nov 30 '11 at 18:29
I want to upvote this just for the tags. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 30 '11 at 18:31
@Mr. Wizard: "You have 1 items in your inbox." – Robert Harvey Nov 30 '11 at 21:27
@Robert lol; with all the expert programmers around here I am surprised that mistake was made. – Mr.Wizard Nov 30 '11 at 21:38
super creepy... – one.beat.consumer Dec 1 '11 at 22:02

See the link in the footer on each page:

Alternatively, post it here. Don't hold your breath for feedback though - although there will almost certainly be some from the community.

"although there will almost certainly be some from the community." - That's rather ominous =) – jadarnel27 Nov 30 '11 at 16:28
@jadarnel it's not meant that way :) Just saying that there will be feedback (praise or criticism or both) from the community before there will be anything official - there may never be an official reaction unless they happen to really, really like the idea. – Pëkka Nov 30 '11 at 16:29
Also worth noting, Jeff is on vacation for six to eight weeks. – Tim Post Nov 30 '11 at 16:56
It's not a suggestion to paint the answer with bold, it's more like a business proposal. I tried to get in touch with one of the executives in stackoverflow via linkedin but for now without a success so I am trying everything I can. If someone can help me with my problem I appreciate it. Thanx. – Rotem Nov 30 '11 at 18:39
@Rotem I'd say is your best bet. If you don't get a response from there (allowing a few weeks' time of course), it's probably safe to say they're not interested. – Pëkka Nov 30 '11 at 18:44
@Rotem Have you tried the contact page? – Adam Lear Nov 30 '11 at 21:52
Thank you guys, I will try & the contact page. – Rotem Nov 30 '11 at 22:27
