As much as I appreciate Stack Overflow, it sure has made it harder to find information about … stack overflows
Makes me think .... Activitypub based technology Q&A platform?
Questions and answers would be public, comments would be public but unlisted, votes would be verbs but not create objects... yes, I see how this could work nicely... It might even be Mastodon-(backwards-)compatible, so you could view it (crudely) on Mastodon – but the character limit might be a problem if it's implemented for displaying messages too.
@codesections ah yes, the Staples problem
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
