Nice insight! I remember first stumbling on a few months ago. I can't really tell why, but I didn't like it much at first. It felt like a strange place. It might be the rather generic name, but I first thought it was one of this sites that basically steal articles, Q&A and documentation from other sites to make money. Well... first impressions can be so misleading sometimes. But since then it popped up more often in my search results and I spent more time here. Turns out I have rarely misjudged a platform more. You built a great place here and this is actually the first platform where I wrote more than one article because it' just fun! What I like most is that people write both long and short articles. So whenever I learn something that is not StackOverflow worthy, I can just dump it here and help some other people out. TL;DR: weird first impression, been soo wrong, really enjoy it now, keep it up!
