I am trying to get my developers to create a "Stack" question-and-answer site like paleohacks.com, and I have a key, but I have no idea what to do next. Help!

  • Questions about the API belong on StackApps. Thanks.

  • @sean, what do you mean, "I have a key"?

  • Surprisingly, I couldn't find a dupe of this, but here are two related questions: one and two

  • @Jon I don't think this is an API question, the OP wants to create his own SO clone. Which strikes me as an SO question, actually... why was this migrated, anyone know?

  • @Pop: Honestly I'm not sure the approach being taken here. The post says "I have a key" which, unless it's a total typo, I interpret to mean "I have an API key." Of course, that's not the correct approach to solve the problem...

  • @Jon, fair enough. I've spent enough time on this unanswerably vague question, voting to close.

  • @Pop, isn't this on topic for StackOverflow, since it's a question about software development, in which case it should be migrated back to where it's on topic?

  • @dsolimano, yes, it would be on-topic for SO, but a reverse migration would have to be done manually, and this question is so poorly written that I don't see that happening.

Paleohacks seems to be a StackExchange 1.0 site, which is no longer available. You could try to get a proposal through the Area 51 process, or possibly use one of the open source StackExchange clones floating around the web. Some are listed here.


Here's a more complete list of clones.
