Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Stack Exchange Network is a group of websites that reduces the traditional forum format of an online discussion to a trivial question and answer user exchange with utter purpose of gaining reputation: "You can register if you want to collect karma and win valuable flair." Stack Exchange "is a closed-source system written using proprietary server-side Microsoft technologies. It is a for-profit business, with paid advertisers and venture capital investors." The whole system is modeled after online MMORPG where the purpose of the user is to collect points in order to gain skills and privileges. Similarly the reputation system allows users to allocate points to valuable answer as they think appropriate.show more
