Hello there, curious passer-by! I'm Tim, and I work here. Mostly, I help drive new improvements to Stack Overflow itself, and I also head up the effort to bring Stack Overflow into other languages. Or, basically, I got bored earning rep, got myself hired, and now spend most of my time on Meta.

Beyond that, I'm:

  • A husband and dad
  • A competent programmer
  • A world traveler
  • Not a teapot

If you need to reach me, it's tpost shift-2 stackoverflow, but please use this form for common support needs. Note, I do not use services such as Linkedin, please don't try to add me there, it just creates noise.

General note to all Feedback is good, we love it, we need it, but we need it in the form of answers that illustrate one particular thing at a time that you find suboptimal with a constructive note as to why :) We understand 'horrible', but that's kind of broad and difficult to process. Thanks for bearing with us :)

@AsafKaragila Do not worry, I will provide you with more cheese that you can place at your sole discretion, which shall never be moved by anyone other than you :P (Please give it a bit of time, and then come back with any specific things that still really stick out at you). I know you don't like change, but please allow a bit of time to acclimate, and let us know what still bothers you.

comment SUPT Can Be Awesome - But In A More Distant Future
@JorgeB. If you have something constructive to bring to the discussion, we'll welcome it. If all you're going to do is make smug comments - there are places much better suited to received them. Your complaints and objections have been heard, continuing to reiterate your dissatisfaction as tersely and opportunistically as you have been is simply trolling. We're talking, and you're sticking your fingers in your ears, that's anything but productive.

Stack Exchange Employee Note - I am cleaning up some of the comments brought up here, hence some links might not work. Some of them are things that I feel represent this community poorly, and need to go.

I don't think anyone is debating the intent behind the comments - it's clearly in an effort to communicate a problem with the question, or the manner in which a user could better utilize the site. But when the disconnect between the intent and the reception of such comments is consistently and sufficiently large to require explanation in order to avert hurt feelings, there is in fact a problem.

comment SUPT Can Be Awesome - But In A More Distant Future
Gilles, French is a completely different discussion. There's an open meta topic there which I'll be responding to at some point this week. It's an established site, it already has a community manager, what remains is the process of translation itself. Right now, in order to see changes from Transifex show up, a dev needs to build the site - it's just not yet optimal for a community to do it themselves autonomously. I want it to be, I just don't know when it will be.

comment Any news about the non-english SE site proposals?
@peterh I'm finding a lot of data about English proficiency, but each thing argues with the previous thing. I am not inclined to close it, but .. I will need to be honest that it will be quite a bit more time. But this is just thinking, I need to dig / organize more reliable data. My main objective today is to let everyone know that we're finally moving with the project in general, and the criteria.
