Now that Stack Overflow has become a group of four sites (the three main sites + this meta site), what's a good way to refer to the complete group? Is there an official name?
The Trilogy. Obviously. After the many books in the Hitchhiker's Guide Trilogy.
The best way to refer to the trilogy is, of course, with a regular expression:
Pronounced "ess oh eff you", naturally.
Isn't it already called the Stack Overflow Trilogy?
But if an abbreviation is key, SOFU could work
because we can parse the trilogy with regex, even if it's made up of HTML.
The Super Stack Fault Tetralogy. (That's what I'm going to call it, anyway.)
- My addiction
- The Stack Overflow family
I'd like to think that most of the users of these sites either already know what a wildcard is, or could be taught easily.
The Four Horsemen? Stackapalooza?
Well, they call it the Stack Overflow Trilogy on the blog. But I have no idea how you'd include Meta in that group.
The Atwoods Family (TAF, speak "tough")
I call it simply Jeff's :)
Meta User Super Server Stack Overflow Fault when I want to explain it to my colleagues :)
Only a suggestion.
Stack Overflow site family?
Stack Overflow is still the first site. The commercial version of this web application is called by it, so... there is also so-family tag.
Stack Overflow is dev Server Fault is svr Super User is usr Meta SO is alt
and if you think about it, each of them are just variants of CODEMONKEY!!!
So I vote for The CODEMONKEY COMMUNE
Why Commune? I give you the top 3 results on Wikipedia's disambig page for Commune:
Commune may refer to:
- Commune (intentional community), a community in which resources are shared
- Commune (socialism), a leftist model for society
- Commune (card game), a poker-based bluffing game
