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

Is the current format (the way it is working right now) of Stack Overflow is the best you can imagine


Do you think that additional modules/sections can be added to it so that it can be more beneficial for each and every member of Stack Overflow?

If yes, then what are your ideas?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question should be on meta yes, but apart from that I can't tell what on earth it is asking. Breaking it up into smaller sentences may help. – thomasrutter Aug 13 '10 at 2:42

A lot of people have wanted small customisations for their own purpose. You can generally find them in two styles:

Greasemonkey scripts - that extended the functionality of the website in some manner (some serious, some not so much)

StackApps - generally more powerful additions to the Stack Overflow suite of sites. Whether it's a different presentation (mobile, text-only, etc), browser plugins (tracking users, etc) and whatnot.

If you think something is missing from the site, you can probably make it yourself using either of the two methods above.

If it already exists, you can find it here: – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Aug 13 '10 at 3:28
