Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I just received some unsolicited email:

A team of developers and I are working on a project to make a better Stack Overflow system called OpenStudy. Because of your previous experience on Stack Overflow, we would love for you to come beta test our new site

At first, I thought it was another initiative from Joel and Jeff.

However, the email address it was sent to was NOT one associated with my Stack Overflow accounts - I suspect they have grabbed it from my blog, which mentions Stack Overflow.

I wanted to confirm whether Stack Overflow and OpenStudy have any relationship.

Referring to the system as a "Stack Overflow" system seems like a poor way to show your superiority. It's like saying "we're making a better Google" instead of "we're making a better search engine" – Michael Mrozek Jul 20 '10 at 6:15
uh-oh! they have cute looking blue owl mascots on the site... SO doesn't stand a chance! – Andy E Jul 20 '10 at 8:01
Very open study - apparently you have to register to see anything. – Georg Fritzsche Jul 20 '10 at 18:11

No relationship whatsoever. Never heard of them.

Oh, and a system better than Stack Overflow? Is that even possible? I am not so sure.. :)

... if you're going to write -1, then you better follow it up with an actual downvote – Mark Henderson Jul 20 '10 at 6:21
