Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 mean, can I copy part of the content and put it in a website?

Can questions be distributed or published?

The license is linked at the bottom of the page:

I'm guessing there is an assumption that all contributors agree to license their copyrights according to that license.

But I'm not sure where users specifically agree to it, and I don't recall clicking a license agreement.
