I know that Stack Overflow (and subsequently Stack Exchange) was founded by Jeff Atwood and co-founded by Joel Spolsky.

But regarding Ask Ubuntu, who took the decision to start a subsite around Ubuntu?


1 Answer 1


The Ubuntu Area 51 Proposal was originally started by this lovely fella:

  • @Feucniger +1 how do I get to 15 rep? I want to upvote your answer. Feb 13, 2014 at 21:38
  • @JeffAtwood Well, you'll have to earn the reputation on the main site. Post some valuable content, once people upvote you, you will receive reputation.

  • @Feucjigner Can you suggest me a topic? Is there an alternative if you have nothing to offer to the community and just want to show your appreciation to someone? Feb 13, 2014 at 21:42
  • @JeffAtwood This being a very content-focused site, there isn't much else you can do. Please do refer to the /help-center on this.

  • @Feihcninger mmm ok :) maybe reposting content from some forum can help :) Feb 13, 2014 at 21:47
  • @JeffAtwood While you may not be able to upvote, you should be able to accept the answer. Just click the grey arrow below the voting arrows so that it turns green(the accept counts for more than the upvote, upvote=+10, accept=+15, you could still upvote when you get the rep)
