This question mentions the existence of a moderator agreement. Is there a way I can see it if I'm not a moderator? I'm just curious.

Maybe a mod can copy & paste it as an answer.

We have made this public at /legal/moderator-agreement

  • Can I suggest including this link in /admin/links as well instead of me hunting it down to here?

  • That page says "Stack Exchange Inc." while the copy in the other answer says "Stack Overflow Internet Services, Inc". Which one is correct?

  • @Nemo "Stack Overflow Internet Services, Inc." was the old name of the company that operated the network; it later changed its name to "Stack Exchange, Inc.". The company couldn't legally be called "Stack Overflow" because there's another company registered with the same name, so it had to use that workaround early on, but once other network sites were created, it moved to a more "relevant" name that wasn't taken. (The later 2015 change to "Stack Overflow" was just a rebranding; the company still has the name "Stack Exchange, Inc." for this same reason.) Apr 20, 2020 at 7:28

    Yes, it's okay to post. The EULA says, essentially, that "you have access to private information; don't share it." ... No big trade secrets there. Jan 13, 2011 at 3:30
