Ten years on the internet is a long time. Let's celebrate the Stack Exchange sites that, as of Q3, have hit that milestone.
It’s time once again for the ritual that I know we’ve all come to love: the quarterly update on Community team projects. This quarter’s projects are constrained by a lack of available technical/engineering resources on our Public Platform team, so you’ll see that we are focusing on projects that don’t require assistance from them.
We're more than just StackOverflow.com; here's a few of the sites in the Stack Exchange network that have been around for a decade!
We spent over a hundred hours in 1-on-1 interviews and collected thousands of survey responses to better understand what our community and customers wanted to see in this product. This feedback shaped everything from naming to moderation, and helped us evolve and iterate the concept into what it is today.
Here's where the Community platform is going this quarter. Spoiler: We’re taking on a lot of big projects.
Badges have been around since the beginning of Stack Overflow. But what badges do we have, and how did they come about in the first place?
Teresa Dietrich leads Product, Community, and Engineering at Stack Overflow. She will be posting quarterly updates laying out key accomplishments and future goals.
We continue our yearly tradition to donate $100 per moderator towards a charity that helps those in need. We look forward to a strong year and take the time to thank our volunteer moderators for their wonderful contributions. Let’s make this one to remember!
