Stack exchange cuts down on the excess and gets to the heart of the problem: Questions and Answers. It’s the best way to get quick answers about Blender.
StackExchange does a few things that BlenderArtists Forums doesn’t.
Edit posts that need a helping hand (formatting, spelling, content, title) if you have enough points.
See a vote tally, which is the closest you’ll get to an objectively graded answer.
It has nice enough syntax highlighting for discussing code snippets.
It uses markdown for markup, nice.
Comments on answers appear directly beneath the answers, and therefore are associated directly with them.
Heavier comment exchanges on a question or answer can turn into their own chat if things get lively.
StackExchange is a curated and evolving knowledge base that can be edited and improved by users who strive to fine tune information.
