What is co-petition? –  Ed Guiness Sep 15 '08 at 17:44

  1. Quote and link to source
  2. Name the author of the source if you can
  3. This should apply to all quotes, not just those from a similar site
  4. If duplication of content isn't allowed, either find a different source or settle for just a link

Speaking from the point of view of a perlmonks user, and assuming you are being literal in "co-petition", we generally prefer to know where else you asked the question, so we don't end up repeating ourselves (or somebody else).

Like any other source of information, you can quote the source, but be sure to link to original URL.

The more the merrier. There's going to be some overlap of users (something would be very wrong if there were not), but I suspect there'll be a lot more non-overlap.

(Also speaking as a perlmonks user, and not to set policy - it's early days yet.)
