What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I was thinking to myself, "I know a lot of things. I would like to share that information with a lot of people."

Are there any plans for a Stack Overflow family site for knowledge sharing? Sometimes people aren't in the mood or wont ask a question. Sometimes they would rather just put that knowledge out there for other people to share.

It's just an idea I had for another site. I'm not sure if there's any duplication with other SOFU sites.

I thought to myself, "I know a lot of things" once, too. Then, I went to college, and that thought has disappeared, never to be seen again. –  Eric Sep 10 '09 at 10:15
    
@Eric .. I am also having the same thought about " I know a lot of things " , but @Random Edited in that way . actually " I want mention , I want share my knowledge " –  joe Sep 10 '09 at 10:32

The information will be out there. You then just "get popular" and no need to ask a question. Or just go with stackExchange.com and post rhetorical questions. –  random Sep 10 '09 at 9:44
    
Thats true , thanks :-) –  joe Sep 10 '09 at 9:48

+1. I even think Larry and Sergey at Google have thought of a way to measure your blog rep. –  MarkJ Sep 16 '09 at 22:53
    
@random Blogs don't provide the same opportunity for collaboration that SO does. There's also a greater barrier you have to cross in order for people to even see any knowledge you shared. –  Danra Feb 18 '12 at 14:49

Sounds to me like you just described Wikipedia.

not like wiki –  joe Sep 10 '09 at 10:43

There has been some consent that you could also somewhat play jeopardy: asking a question that you then could answer yourself. You just have to preserve the Q&A format, when you want it to be on the SO family.

SO/SF/SU want to be a repository for knowledge.

This is in fact encouraged, because it is not a monologue. If you present bad information, or if a better solution/technique exists, the others can point this out. The entire community benefits, and what started as you teaching others might even end up with you learning something new. Why wouldn't you want to do it this way? –  ベレアー アダム Sep 10 '09 at 12:13

Here is answer for you, maybe.

Moving a personal technical blog to stackoverflow / serverfault
