What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

What is the "official" take on sharing code/images/etc on SE sites?

By "official" I mean I'm looking for any thoughts on this by the creators of the SE engine/software. Note that I appreciate the great answers that have been given by mods and community members to the more specific questions (often about a specific service).

I'm happy to accept the answer "there isn't any" if that's the case. It's just curiousity I'm trying to satisfy.

PS. Here's some linked questions that are related yet don't answer my question:

Link-only answers (and Q's indecipherable without an external link) must die! Die! DIE! –  Awesome Poodles Dec 6 '11 at 9:03

Don't forget that this is largely a community-policed site; the creators implement features and occasionally, ahem, strongly advocate certain policies, but generally speaking, the mores are decided by the users. Their answers are just as valuable, if not more so, than Jeff's or any other team member's on matters of social conduct on SE. –  Josh Caswell Dec 6 '11 at 9:44
Here's one of my auto-comments, which gives you an idea on the preferred stance: "Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference." –  Benjol Dec 6 '11 at 10:56
Thx for all the comments. I've added related SO Meta questions to my original question text. –  Jeroen Dec 6 '11 at 18:43
