When searching for solutions to technical problems, sometimes a rather lengthy thread will contain the information sought. However, in a lengthy thread it may be difficult to identify the "best" answer to the original question.
Would it be possible to implement a feature in the forum like Yahoo! Answers?
The difference is that on Frihost we are actually discussing the question/topic, while on Yahoo Answers there isn't much discussion, it's rather everyone trying to give the best answer. In a discussion you can hardly re-order the posts and place the best one on top. Maybe a link to the best answer is the solution.
Otherwise we could make one or more special question-answer forums, similar to Yahoo Answers. The problem is that I actually prefer the discussion format, as the answers in Yahoo Answers aren't debated/nuanced, while in a discussion that is the case.
Actually what you say is very true. I like the idea of posting a link to the "best answer" instead, and that link can actually be appended to the first post on the thread as an edit.
