I’ve always been impressed by the stackoverflow and serverfault web sites. Granted forums have been around for a long time – however I love the user interaction provided by the folks behind Stack Exchange. A couple of months ago they created area51 to request new ideas that could use the same framework behind stackoverflow and serverfault. And again the user experience for handling these requests is great.
In my opinion Stack Exchange provides an excellent user experience that fosters user contributions and collaboration – in-line with the values of the Ubuntu community.
So I went over to area51 and voted on the on-topic and off-topic questions for the Ubuntu proposal.
