Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

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
