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

Just came across this site: http://www.puzzleoverflow.com

It looks exactly the same as a Stack Exchange site. It doesn't seem to have any connection with SE, though, and it's not mentioned on Stack Exchange or anything.

FWIW, Puzzle Overflow is also mentioned in this answer: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2267/stack-overflow-clones/… – Pops Sep 16 '10 at 14:27
    
Ack, I noticed in the half-second between hitting "Save Edits" and the page actually refreshing that I clobbered someone. Sorry! – Pops Sep 16 '10 at 14:30

You should ask George Stocker - He's got an account on Puzzle Overflow. – Peter Ajtai Sep 16 '10 at 16:21

@Peter Yup. I answered below. – George Stocker Sep 16 '10 at 16:37

Take a look at its source:

<meta name="generator" content="StackExchange 0.9 (20100413135304-37b86aed49ad)">

I'd say it's a SE-1.0 site (or someone asking for a law suit)

Can't seem to find it in the SE 1.0 site list: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4/… – Piskvor Sep 16 '10 at 12:58

@Piskvor: I'm not certain that list is complete, SE 1.0 allowed for private usage too. Maybe someone from the team can clarify this – Tobias Kienzler Sep 16 '10 at 13:03
    
Ah, good point. We're kind of guessing here. OTOH, the links in non-obvious places point to StackOverflow.com, there is no contact info, no legal info, nothing. (the even FAQ has "we don't run %(sitename), you do"). I'm guessing "clone"; added to the SO clones list: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2267/stack-overflow-clones – Piskvor Sep 16 '10 at 13:09
    
If it runs on the engine, it's almost certainly not an unauthorized clone. I'm with Tobias, it's more likely a SE1.0 site that just needs to be added to the list. – C. Ross Sep 16 '10 at 13:35

It is a StackExchange site. In addition to checking the metadata, you can also visit it at http://puzzleoverflow.stackexchange.com/

It was a Stack Exchange 1.0 puzzle site. It was a lot of fun and I think it'd have a place as part of a larger Stack Exchange built around Interviewing. But There isn't one of those yet.
