The other sites official names are: Stack Overflow, Server Fault and Super User.

Update 2: the official name is Meta Stack Overflow, despite the consensus here of Meta StackOverflow - this is directly from Jeff Atwood. MSO is the abbreviation.


Which of the following is this site's official name?

  • Meta
  • meta
  • Meta Stack Overflow
  • Meta StackOverflow

  • meta Stack Overflow
  • meta stack overflow

What is the corresponding official abbrevation (SO, SF and SU for the others):

  • mSO
  • metaSO
  • MSO
  • MEta
  • MS
  • Why the downvote ? Hmm, reading the FAQ, I understand, questions here should be only about SO, SF, or SU. This one is about another site than these 3, so it should be closed... :) – Gnoupi Aug 26 '09 at 13:41

    Pizza waffles. – TheTXI Aug 26 '09 at 13:15
  • I want to see that contest: Eric against the pony eating Pizza-Waffles. Who is betting? – Ladybug Killer Aug 26 '09 at 13:18
  • @John: I don't only eat waffles. After all, pizza is sort of amazing, too. – Eric Aug 26 '09 at 13:20
  • Eric, we are talking about the combination. You get both. All for free, Diago is paying! – Ladybug Killer Aug 26 '09 at 13:22
  • Hmmm..... I think the pony has a better change... But then Eric has been known to pull of some very sneaky maneuvers. – BinaryMisfit Aug 26 '09 at 13:22
  • Hell yes. Let's do it. – Eric Aug 26 '09 at 13:23
  • Oi - What gives anyone the idea that I can afford it at the current exchange rate. If someone is willing to pick up the Fedex charges though, I could get the Pizza's for free :) – BinaryMisfit Aug 26 '09 at 13:23
  • Exchange rate: how many waffles do I get for one pizza? – Treb Aug 26 '09 at 13:25
  • google.com.ar/search?q=1+pizza+in+waffles mmm... appearently Google does not have that exchange, but I found recipe for Waffle Pizza :D – perbert Sep 2 '09 at 13:35

Meta StackOverflow - MSO.

It can however also be knows as HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED's personal hideout, or any other [insert funky name here] option you choose.

It makes no difference really as Jeff already said Meta is Murder

    Did you notice that this is actually the "offline" logo of mso? Not the error-page, but the full "down" logo. – Marc Gravell Aug 26 '09 at 13:12

    The Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum is a proper description, IMO. – Treb Aug 26 '09 at 13:23
  • You only can take over something if you kill someone. Join the club, Treb! – Ladybug Killer Aug 26 '09 at 13:25
  • I did not approve the use of my name here. – GEOCHET Aug 26 '09 at 13:26
  • Awww Rich - It was a compliment. That downvote really hurt my feelings. I worked so hard to be a part of the club :( – BinaryMisfit Aug 26 '09 at 13:29
