What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

After realizing I could learn more about Stack Exchange I started Googling "StackExchange Guide" so I could learn more about the different exchange sites and start branching out my questions from Stack Overflow.

In the process, I found this WikiBook: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/The_StackExchange_User_Guide

The author is "benonsoftware" but not sure if there's a connection.

I wanted to see if it's legit and/or there will be more to come in the future? I think this is a cool idea whether Stack Exchange created or user-created.

What do you mean by "legitimate"? – Pëkka Jan 6 '12 at 0:27
By legit, is it either a StackExchange-backed project or is it a WikiBook with solid users behind it who intend to finish and maintain it. My bad if it wasn't clear enough. – crockpotveggies Jan 6 '12 at 0:32
If you're looking for other sources of information, the blog and Community FAQ have tons of information... – Kevin Vermeer Jan 6 '12 at 0:55
@KevinVermeer very helpful indeed, although I realized that more and more sites like "Super User" and "IT Security" are popping up, but there's not much material to help a n00b learn about them or if their question is better suited with them. – crockpotveggies Jan 6 '12 at 1:03

It's not an official project, but was started by George Edison, who definitely is a solid Meta/SO user. However, I don't think the project gained enough momentum - it's a year old with no visible activity.

Ah thanks for sharing that link. I'll look through the history of that question, I might learn a little in the process by contributing to it. Cheers. – crockpotveggies Jan 6 '12 at 0:38
Thanks for crediting me! Yeah, I started that a loooong time back as a beginner's guide. I'm glad it's starting to turn up in search results now. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jan 6 '12 at 1:42
