Stack Overflow is how most Stack Exchange users seem to find any of the other sites at this point, so yeah I'd say it's safe to assume a good amount of UX.SE people are from or have used SO/SU/SF. The thing is Stack Overflow was hugely popular and for the most part all the sites were born of users of SO. Stack Exchange is trying to grow to not just be a ...

Only one answer to that meta "question": hurray! :D

I can only speak for myself, but I was not a StackOverflow user prior to getting involved on UX.SE (though I was quite familiar with it). My participation on UX.SE has actually led me to get somewhat involved on SO and other SE sites, actually.

It means that of your accepted answers, you have more than five with zero score and those zero-score accepted answers are more than 20% of the total number of answers. I'm not entirely sure why this question is on Meta.UX, because your Tenacious badge is on Stack Overflow. Anyway, you have 48 answers; 31 of those are zero-score; and 10 zero-score answers ...

I would say that I generally agree with your criticisms, and I appreciate you taking the time to write them up. I'm not going to get too deep into historical reasons for why things are the way they are, but sometimes things just evolve instead of being intelligently designed at the beginning :) I have taken some time to try to outline a solution to the ...

Not all questions are suitable for this site, or Stack Exchange sites in general. As a result they will be either put on-hold to give the poster the opportunity to bring the question more on-topic for the site, or they will be closed off and / or deleted if they are unable to be made suitable. These questions are closed because we're more on the strict side ...

By editing your On Hold question it was then automatically added to the 'Re-open' review queue for people to look over and see if it qualified for reopening. However it was not deemed suitable for reopening so was left on hold. (I myself reviewed, this and as a moderator I get binding votes so it didn't get reviewed by anyone else after I cast my vote). The ...

I'm not sure whether you tried to submit an answer or a comment based on your post/comments, but you should be perfectly able to leave an answer. However, due to the message you got, I'm pretty sure you got caught in a service disruption the Stack Exchange network is experiencing. It's nothing deliberate and will probably be resolved shortly (or is resolved, ...

I have 11 listed on my list - added one using “edit” just last night, and it scrolls through them all fine. So, I did notice I had to repeat the “add” routine twice before it saved it as it should - or I was being stupid and not actually hitting save ... :)

I think some UX professionals, like me, may have first heard of UX.SE through the Balsamiq website. If Peldi and co. at Balsamiq recommend anything strongly, I pay attention. As usual, they weren't wrong :)

"I've been a member since beta days!", sounds nice to me now.
