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

Do you have any experience with programming related questions in Ask Metafilter?

  • Do you get more experts there and are your answers better?

  • Do they reply quickly and does every question get answered, considering its a paid service?

The typical Ask Metafilter questions that I find using Google have excellent answers...

I think it's a fairly radically different (and much wider) audience, so a bit of apples to oranges.

I am a big fan of Metafilter as covered on previous podcasts, though!

Not to knock MeFi at all, but SO, being a dedicated programming community, should do far better on prgramming questions -- and I'd be seriously concerned if it didn't.
