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.

I was wondering if Stack Overflow has a place that accepts tutorials or articles in general.

I like the whole feel of SO, so felt like asking this question.

SO isn't really designed for tutorials/articles, but if you've just discovered a neat way to do something and want to share that information, one option is to open a question then immediately answer it yourself.

Ah... I thought I would be busted for that! Thanks for the suggestion... – Legend Oct 7 '09 at 1:19
@Legend: some people think that is good manners that you make your answer community wiki. This behavior is not only allowed, but encouraged. The idea is to make Stack Overflow the biggest existing programming knowledge base. – perbert Oct 7 '09 at 1:32
I don't make my questions CW...I wants points! – Stefan Kendall Oct 7 '09 at 1:36
@iftrue: Question is fine. Just mark the answer that way. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 7 '09 at 3:04
@Joel, if that is to be officially encouraged, how about making self-answers always CW? – bdonlan Oct 23 '09 at 3:57

Get a blog. Sha na na na, sha na na na na

Yeah actually you are right... But I'm not finding a blog provider that has a good support for programming languages... Do you know anyone? If I can't find anyone, then maybe I'll start putting everything down here at SO of course, in the form of questions :P – Legend Oct 9 '09 at 17:43
