  • It’s essentially an advanced form of Perl Monks’ Q&A section

    Is it viable (is it desirable) to arrange for it to feed its questions to Perl Monks as new nodes in Seekers of Perl Wisdom [perlmonks.org], even if it's not possible to set up a reverse feed for answers? That way, at least the questions get dropped straight into the attention zone of the Perl Monks users, which I think greatly increases the chance that some would log into StackOverflow to post a proper answer there. (Or an answer distilled from the wisdom of multiple Perl Monks.)

    • StackOverflow is expressly not a forum, and has no threads. Also unlike Perl Monks, there is a strong expectation that questions and answers will be edited over time, and that duplicate questions will be merged. StackOverflow is very focused on the Q&A format.

      Getting the Perl Monks population involved is a good idea, but I think it would have to be shallow integration as the sites are too different – something like a nodelet that pulls the feed and just provides links maybe.
