What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was just looking at http://answers.unity3d.com/ and they seem to be using the Stack Overflow engine or Stack Exchange.

But it seems to be hosted on their servers. How is that possible?

It was a Stack Exchange 1.0 site.

Checking the source shows the header:

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

NOTE: Unity Answers has since switched to the QATO backend. See the Unity Answers FAQ about this.

Thx Chris for the info. So is that available under some commercial license that allows them to host on their own servers? – Bach Nov 10 '10 at 9:35
@Bach - it was the first attempt to spread the Stack Overflow model. It didn't work as expected so was replaced by the new Stack Exchange 2.0 Area 51. – ChrisF Nov 10 '10 at 9:41
Ah I see all clear now thx. – Bach Nov 10 '10 at 10:26
