What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

Most egregious this is. I was shocked, and dare I say, rather apoplectic, as I came upon a site in blantant copy use of the colors and UI elements which are seen on Stack Overflow.

To the room, I present: http://feedback.odesk.com/forums/26681-general

Are there a lot of other sites that copy/paste Stack Overflow's feel without changing almost anything?

That's UserVoice. It kinda existed before SO...

? Don't find oDesk if I search for you link ? Maybe oDesk existed before SO, but the whole interface has been changed & the JavaScript code too in a very questionnable copy/paste way. –  Olivier Pons Mar 5 '10 at 9:27
    
@Olivier: see the "powered by uservoice" logo in the top right corner of oDesk. Also see: uservoice.com –  Greg Hewgill Mar 5 '10 at 9:29
    
SO didn't invent questions, comments, voting, nor badges either. It just combined them in a very clever way. Whether copying that way 1:1 can be a success? I don't know. We'll see. –  Pëkka Mar 5 '10 at 9:33

@Greg: you're perfeclty right. >_< .Sometimes I should "Carve every word before you let it fall" (French translation of "Il faut tourner sept fois sa langue dans sa bouche avant de parler"). >_< . My mistake. –  Olivier Pons Mar 5 '10 at 9:40
