> 'asking the Erlang community to force use of a platform to affect a particular type of popularity graphs'
I said consider, not force. But basically yes. Although I'd consider it more getting erlang the recognition it's due, and bring it to light for those that don't know about it. It would seem to me the 'better' question/answers (use your own subjective judgement) might be worth putting on stackoverflow as well.
I use stackoverflow for other stuff and I didn't find it that hard to use. And most of my search engine results are usually stackoverflow when I'm lookng for something.

That sounds like asking the Erlang community to force use of a platform to affect a particular type of popularity graphs.
Also I've read bad stuff about how hard is to begin helping people on Stackoverflow, and their karma system makes it harder, why bother?
I'm not sure I understand. I probably should have been more specific when I said stackoverflow since I was presuming everyone knew about it.
https://stackoverflow.com/ is a website for answering questions. It's quite popular for sys admins but has alot of programming language related questions (where the graph data came from) and most search engines give it high weighting on searches (since it frequently does have the answer to the question you ask).
I should have precise 'humour' in my mail.
I meant that Erlang community can use a slack room for questions. But it is not that much overflowed by questions...
And I personally prefer ask questions in live than find a 4 years old answer that is maybe not relevant for my problem.
That said I sometimes use stackoverflow for other languages than Erlang.
