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

If I have a body of code which I want to improve, I can post it to Refactor :my => 'code'. Now is it acceptable to post a question simply inviting SO users to the challenge? Isn't such practice frowned at?

Yes it is (frowned upon), and will likely be closed and deleted. Alternatively, you could try posting your challenge at, but read their FAQ first to see if it is on-topic there. – Robert Harvey Mar 12 '11 at 7:09
Twitter / etc are the best venues for attracting attention to any particular question. Reddit also works, but be careful when meddling with dragons - for you are crunchy and taste good with gravy :) – Tim Post Mar 12 '11 at 8:33
Guess I put the matter in a way that attracts no-no's. To mend things a bit, I'm not talking of treating SO as an agent merely for attracting attention to something that lives some other place. Now that I think more about it, I wanted to check if bringing other services to a question is OK or not. Like there seems no problem with posting code on and refer to it in a question or an answer. – Majid Fouladpour Mar 12 '11 at 8:51
