re: What a very bad day at work taught me about building Stack Overflow’s community VIEW POST


Like William Antonelli, I decided after few days to stop trying to earn enough point to ask my first questions.
So when I search something Dev related, I try the most of the time to avoid result from SO and if I don't find the answer, I try to change my code and ask to peer review to improve it.

SO is not the only one website to be unfriendly with beginners but it's not a reason to keep it like that.

When I read your post, I was happily surprised I was not alone and changes will came from the inside, that's make me change my mind an see what the future will be.

I hope you will keep us updated.


This comment really got me... It also motivated me to write a little post of my own. Stack Overflow can be helpful sometimes, I'm sorry you had a bad experience.

I'm not associated with SO at all, just bummed out that you had a bad experience... reading the rest of the comments here it seems like quite a few people had less-than-stellar experiences.
