How should I cite content from this site?

If I have written an article, book, etc. or have created some other work that utilizes the text on this site, how should I cite it?

The content on this site is a collaborate effort of all of its members.

@misc {CVXForum1,
    title={How should I cite content from this site?},
    author = {Michael C. Grant ( et. al.},
    howpublished = {The CVX Forum (web site)},
    note = {URL:[How should I cite content from this site?](/t/how-should-i-cite-content-from-this-site/18/1)},
    url = {[How should I cite content from this site?](/t/how-should-i-cite-content-from-this-site/18/1)}
