What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Due to wide spread popularity of stackoverflow.com among programmers, nowadays one can find the list of features that programmer would like to see on Stack Overflow. Some are genuine and some are jokes.

One such joke I found says:

Stackoverflow.com will introduce a new software testing service inspired by Amazon's Mechanical Turk, where developers upload their programs and testers find bugs in exchange for a micropayment. Somebody then does the obvious and connects it to a Mechanical Turk task that gets one bunch of monkeys to write code and uses the second bunch to test it. A reasonably good clone of Windows 7 is banged out over 8 months with a budget of about $4,000

I would be interesting to know your feature.

There's no way you could keep even one monkey for 8 months for only $4000. And you'd need at least two for Windows 7. –  Greg Hewgill Dec 20 '09 at 9:52

What's my feature? I don't know if I have just one, but I've been told I'm a talented programmer with a keen eye for spotting bugs and refactoring old code into new good code. I pick up new technologies quickly and can incorporate new ideas into my designs rapidly.

Wait, what was the question again?

Corbomite. Stack Exchange needs a corbomite device. It's the only way to defend the reputation / anti-reputation reactor. I'm using a prototype version on this answer, actually.
