Hm.. looks like a wiki of some kind. Might be self made.

Looks horrible to be honest..

/edit
reading http://stackoverflow.com/about seems to suggest it is self made, then again, they could just mean the content not the backend.

/edit 2

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/ ; Welcome to Q&A about the Stack Exchange engine powering these sites -- check out the FAQ!

/edit 3

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questi...re-have-a-name
http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questi...etworking-tool
http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questi...to-other-sites

So, guess it is something they created themselves. I'm sure there's a package out there that does the same. I'm curios (sp?) what you've in mind tho.

I don't think it's self made... it's also in use by the Unity team...
http://answers.unity3d.com/
It's not the prettiest board, but the function of it is very good. I've worked with a bit on the Unity site while I've been learning that game engine.

As for application... it's something of a political nature, but I don't want to say anything about it yet.

Unrelated to WoW anyway.

It's their own creation, Stack Exchange 0.9. It use to be sold to hosting accounts, however it's not anymore. You can suggest sites that they should make and they will do a Q&A SE version; my recommendation good f'n luck!

http://answers.yahoo.com/ uses a similar layout, tho haven't looked at what the backend used is.

If work allows I could try to search this weekend.

Perhaps this one ?

The thing I liked about that system was that the user community was self organizing... the vote up/down, the question/answer and accept function, and the reputation feature. It's a brilliant execution of a self-organizing chaos function that does not require a huge investment of admin hours to manage.

It's not the layout that turned me on, it was the functionality.

Well, pretty much every site I know that uses something similar seems to be using self made... You could off course email any of them and ask if want to sell/licence it.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/*
http://www.geekinterview.com/
http://tweakers.net/nieuws/69725/mic...-apps-uit.html

Edit, the last one, tweakers, is build in colloberatian (sp?) with http://react.nl/index.php?TreeID=2.

* this site is somewhat interesting. If you're not a member or not logged on you can't read the forum/replies. If a google search turns up a result on that site however you can. (IIRC the site had to else google would stop listing them)

Looks like a hole worth filling... but I have too many other pokers in the fire as is... so, another time.
