I have a new web app coming out soon. I have an IRC channel for it and would also like to have a forum for my site. I like the idea of SO's reputation system and such and thought I had seen somewhere you could make your own mini SO forum for your website.

Does such a thing exist?
Are there any similar forums to SO?

    Questions about this site should be asked on its meta site. Questions about Stack Overflow in general should be asked on the Meta site. But to answer your question "No, you can't have your own Stack Overflow". The closest you can get is to propose a new site on Area 51 – ChrisF Aug 25 '10 at 11:20

    However, if you are asking about sites similar to SO then it's probably just about OK here. However, I would recommend searching Meta.StackOverflow as clones and other similar software have been discussed there. – ChrisF Aug 25 '10 at 11:24
  • without knowing your project it's difficult to say, but you need to gather enough support (60+ followers) and have a well defined set of possible questions before it can even proceed to beta. – ChrisF Aug 25 '10 at 11:25

Assuming you're looking for an installable clone, meta has a list of them. You can also have StackExchange host one for you, but you have to go through the approval process and you won't have any control over it.

There was a drupal hack-a-thon which released a stackoverflow clone. http://drupal.org/project/arrayshift
