Stack Overflow is a great site. every time when a search on a problem takes me there i look forward to the helpful and insightful answers. in ways, posting a question on Stack Overflow is similar to creating a task on RosettaCode.

on Stack Overflow a problem gets posted in form of a question, and people attempt to solve the problem by answering it. question and answers can be discussed and updated. once the poster of the question is satisfied, an answer may be chosen as being accepted.

on RosettaCode a problem gets posted in form of a Draft Task and people attempt to solve the problem by creating an implementation in their favorite language.
