Hello there, curious passer-by! I'm Tim, and I work here. I head up the effort to bring new features to Stack Overflow, and Stack Overflow to new languages. They tell me I'm some kind of director of Stack Overflow communities, or something.

If you need to reach me, I'm tpost@stackoverflow.com. You can also follow me on Twitter, I'm usually not boring.

comment Careers 2.0 does not give me any response
@Neel It's not sad. It's a happy thing. You've done enough to demonstrate competence, which is a lot more than many others competing for jobs in your field have done. All you need now is some shine and polish. Just get some passion and fun in that profile, I'm certain you'll do well if you do.

comment Time to upgrade SSL Cert(s) on *stackexchange.com
We have SSL, just not for everything (thus it isn't officially supported, even though we do our best to make sure it works well enough to use stuff if you use it). When it's fully supported, I believe we're going to be using the best extended-validation certs we can get.

comment Ideas for proposals to help Stack Overflow create a more positive community?
Now, for my feedback (just mine) I think you could pretty much condense this into the last part of your question. The stuff going around that is basically 'people think' or 'people perceive' isn't in any way shown to be representative of how 'people' actually feel about the site. Many are isolated bad experiences stitched together like patchwork where the author ends with "And you could make a whole quilt out of these". I'm not saying we don't have room to improve, but I don't find many of them fair, some even less-than-factual, and all of them pretty much just 'angry'.

I am reopening this because the duplicate is over a year old, the mechanism of 'meta' needs to allow for things to be revisited, and since we have no way of making something old 'fresh again' without asking again, it's good to air on leaving these open. That doesn't compel you to participate in this discussion, but I'd like to leave it open for anyone that wants to.

@UniKitty That form might not be working properly for them, though it is the ideal way to contact us about it.

comment Make the site about Open Information!
@Gilles I'm tempted to use "Free & Open Source" as a noun, though taking 'development' out and just leaving 'projects' is a more technical fix.

@DavidPostill it comes down to a concept of planned endeavor and fulfillment. Some users just say "I want to go look at a bunch of stuff" and then happily drill into what's there in whatever capacity is needed. Others say "I really want to get that badge that damn site has been teasing me with" and if something is getting in their way, it's worth considering.

comment Fix the misleading description of the "Hide Communities" feature
I'm raising this internally. It was a consideration, still is, but needs to be revisited.
