Competition for CP?Mad

Why mad? Unsure | :~

Competition is good for everyone, eventually. Chris & Co. should be watching SO, and learning from their mistakes/triumphs - SO has certainly picked up plenty of ideas from existing Q&A sites.

One of CP's long-standing problems is that the forums are great for hashing out a problem, but the answers get lost - internal search sucks, Google doesn't index them properly, and eventually we get tired of answering the same questions again and again. If the SO method avoids some of this, then CP could potentially implement a hybrid system that allows both discussion (hard to beat CP's threaded discussions) and searchable, editable, Q&A.


[Edit: missed the joke icon, sorry. Too much coffee / too little coffee / not just the right amount of coffee... ]

You're right.
These facts that you've laid out totally contradict the wild ramblings that I pulled off the back of cornflakes packets.
