Can I use the API for posting any question to Stack Overflow? I have a internal SharePoint site and whenever anybody has got any technical question they post it here. I want to post it automatically to Stack Overflow so that it can be addressed by a larger audience.

    It seems like this question gets asked every week, but I can't find the original or any duplicates (they're probably being deleted). Perhaps it should be added to the FAQ or even the Getting Started sidebar? Aug 3, 2010 at 16:55

    Yikes, this use case is scary... makes a very good argument for WHY write access should take a long time to figure out. Aug 4, 2010 at 17:37

No, you can't post anything (Question, Answers, Comments, Votes) from the API yet. It's been implied (but not promised) that write access will be available in version 2.0.

  • Haha - "It's been implied (but not promised)" - They have done a very good job of not promising anything. " When v2 comes out..." They keep telling us.

Many have asked, some have even tried playing around with issuing POST requests. It just isn't going to happen until v2.0 or later.
