Since there are over 4.8 million (4.3m on SO, 211k on SF, 330k on SU) users on the original trinity alone, Stack Exchange is the size of a small country. (More than Costa Rica) Even small countries have national anthems, therefore Stack Exchange should have a national anthem.

  1. Do we need one?

  2. Should we have one?

  3. Who should write it?

And most importantly:

  1. How many implicit references should it have?

    We (in my country) had a similar contest for the song for the King a couple of years back. From that experience I don't think songs should be crowd-sourced....

Stack Exchange may be as large as a small country; this doesn't make it a small country.

    New York City and Mexico City are even larger than Stack Exchange, and neither have an anthem either. :) Commented May 24, 2015 at 11:26
  • @psubsee2003 WHAT? New York, New York isn't the anthem of that city?

Think of England (doesn't have a national anthem) and are they pretty big to deal with. But those sports team Like football do have.

  • Umm we do...? God save the Queen?
