An Empirical Study of Obsolete Answers on Stack Overflow

Haoxiang Zhang, Shaowei Wang, Tse-Hsun Peter Chen, Ying Zou, Ahmed E. Hassan
2019 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
Stack Overflow accumulates an enormous amount of software engineering knowledge. However, as time passes, certain knowledge in answers may become obsolete.  ...  Our findings suggest that Stack Overflow should develop mechanisms to encourage the whole community to maintain answers (to avoid obsolete answers) and answer seekers are encouraged to carefully go through  ...  One possible reason is that some answerers are no longer active on Stack Overflow.  ...
