unix.se should be exactly what you are looking for. From the site's description page: Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library ...

The last time we discussed this we didn't really have a problem (people getting problems solved is the priority) but most other stackexchange websites don't allow cross-posting. The official line from upon high is to pick the best site and post there and only there. Write the best question you possibly can and if it doesn't pay off, ask for it to be ...

The 100 extra rep come (as you probably know) from joining in another site from the Stack Exchange network. Still those do not count when facing a protected question as the one you linked. Protected questions require that a user gains at least 10 rep on his own before posting any answer in to it. You need to get 2 more rep from somewhere. Maybe a upvote on ...

All post content is available under CC-BY-SA. But I disagree slightly with the spirit of muru's post. You can add additional licenses to your posts. If a post declares its content to be available under an additional license, that is just dual-licensing. The reader can choose between the stated on and CC-BY-SA. This is just the same concept as if the writer ...

The work around suggested in the answer here appears to be working for me (Thanks @Seth !). The line you want to change in the original script (autoreviewcomments.user.js) is as follows: $('#' + divid).find('.comment-help-link').parent().append(newspan); From the answer provided: The workaround for this is to change line 683 to: setTimeout(function() {...

Try this: https://askubuntu.com/users/login?noauto=true&returnUrl=%2Fusers%2Fcurrent The way to get the link is: Select your username (the avatar in the new not-technically black bar) Click "My Logins" Click "Add more logins..." Done!

Ben Collins ♦ was making some changes to the comment system and something he did caused the userscript to stop working (ref. 1, ref 2). The author of the script, Benjol, is aware of the problem and AFAIK is working on a fix. Several (one, two) workarounds have been suggested until the issue has been resolved. Tim Stone said he might be able to give it a ...

Contrary to the way the majority of people (wrongly) use them, tag wiki excerpts are meant to explain how to use the tag. Obviously different sites will have different scopes so you couldn't sync this across sites too well. The tag wiki itself could possibly be synced across sites, but that removes any ability to tailor the wiki for a specific site's ...

I disagree with your assessment of what the current site is. Here's a screenshot: That's what it should look like. It sounds like that's not what you're seeing.

Cross-posting to multiple sites is not permitted by network policy. This is to keep people from using an arbitrary shotgun approach in hopes of getting their question seen somewhere. You might contact the user to give them a gentle reminder about the policy, but if the activity continues, you can deal with that user directly. But for dealing with a rare ...

Yes, you can. It's quite simple. You simply create an account on another Stackexchage site with the same credentials(assuming your Launchpad username is example, click the option for something like "other", and type , https://launchpad.net/~example and continue the login. This has a benefit--if you hit 200 reputation on any one StackExchange site, you get an ...

They're third party. Look at the src URL of one. Here's muru's: https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/0ce9def9898b5e9e0339ccc26c57ae94?s=48&d=identicon&r=PG The jumble there is an MD5 hash of the user's email (failing back to network ID if no email set). This can be overridden by the profile image. These are uploaded to Imgur (like other images here are)...

The design of the site is a global concept across all stackexchange sites. See Ask Ubuntu new site theme is live (and the closed Ask Ubuntu new site theme coming soon ) Important link from that points to the introduction of the changes: Ch-ch-ch-changes: Left nav, responsive design, & themes There are no settings to change the color of the top bar ...

On the user leagues page, it says Jul 27, 2014 - Aug 1, 2014. My calendar says that July 27 was a Sunday. So I'm guessing SO use Sunday as the first day of the week :) Keeping to the creation story I see (Sunday the first day)! Yep the first image is self promotion :P My pronouns are He / Him

It's a big complicated site so it has a fairly complex setup but the core of is ASP.NET MVC and MS SQL Server. For a more complete look at things there was a post about it a while back on ServerFault: http://blog.serverfault.com/2011/02/11/stack-exchanges-architecture-in-bullet-points/ This has probably expanded but I'd be surprised if there have been many ...

Have you given StackMobile a try? It currently only provides read-only access to the site, but it offers a sleek AJAX-based interface to the site that is specially optimized for smartphones, tablets, and mobile devices. Here's an example of the latest questions on the site and one particular question:

The other answer looks out-of-date now. Here is an updated screenshot I took; the link you want is now called main:

Actually it's right there with the other formatting help.

That is part of reCaptcha's system, I believe. And because of that, the people to report that issue to is reCaptcha, especially if it's global across all the reCaptcha things you see. The developer's FAQ for this is here. They also have a discussion group on reCaptcha where you would likely go to report issues with reCaptcha. Note that I don't think they ...

As Seth said you can use multiple login methods on StackExchange, one of them is OpenID and for example the link to your Launchpad profile. Launchpad and StackExchange however are completely independent and owned by different entities, they are not different products from one company where an employee can merge your accounts.

It is this year's Stack Exchange Easter Egg for April fools day. It's a simple game similar to Donkey Kong, but with an evil unicorn instead of a gorilla - therefore the name "UniKong". Oh, and the character you control depicts the genius universalis of Stack Overflow, Jon Skeet. To play it, I would recommend you to use a Chrome/Chromium browser, my ...

To help you with the question on why weren't all askubuntu accounts automatically linked to stackexchange, it is because, back when askubuntu was born, the stackexchange worked on common account systems (google, facebook) and their own stackexchange system. The launchpad for what I remember (Anyone please correct me if am wrong) was added later, but both ...

If it's the same question, you should ask for it to be migrated to the appropriate site. For instance, an Ubuntu question may well be on topic at SuperUser, but it should ideally be on AU. Google is the User interface. Having a question in multiple places does not increase its visibility.
