- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

To help make it a real site check out what needs to be done. At this point people need to upvote questions to 10 points or more. Help out if you want to make it real.
