Default Yahoo! Answers Styled Support Board -- it's here now!!!

On Justin and Wendy's newest site, Free Realms Insider (www.freerealmsinsider.com), there is a Yahoo! Answers styled help board. I myself have never used it on there but it seems to be really helpful. Once the thread is answered, I believe it is locked automatically (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The thread creator can also choose the best answer of the members can vote on it.

I took two screen shots of the feature:

I think this would be a really nice feature to have on WI. What about you? Any opinions are welcome.

UPDATE- it's been added! Check out the Somebody Help! forum for more details.

I like it I've seen it on WikiAnswers. Its very helpful for people who want the correct answer, and not the many, sometimes not correct answers that we see on WI somtimes.

(New website? Hmm... whats next xDD I hope its Club Penguin- its the only other website I know of.)

I think that would be pretty cool. I would love to have something like that here, plus it would make people be more motivated to give good and thorough answers on threads. (: Great thinking once again, Ave!

I like it, and think that it would lead people to make better post, but I am worried that you said "once the thread is answered, it is locked". The problem with this is that it would not only lead to an increase in threads we can only view across the forum, but sometimes the owner of the thread doesn't get the entire answer, or future discussion reveals something new. Also, people might get mad if they make a post they feel is good, but it is no voted the best. It could also lead to competition. So while I like the idea, I think it could use some work

I believe the thread owner can choose when it was answered and it is automatically locked. But thanks!

good idea! I hate to see every thread has 600 posts, and one has only 1 reply!

I think that that feature would be very nice. Bob mentioned that it would lead to better posts, and I believe that it would!

That's really cool ave.

That would be very helpful to see which answer was best, and see if anyone has had the same problems as you too! It would also make people strive to make better posts too, with that little bit of competition for 'Best Answer'. This feature would also cut down on threads, if people could search the past threads like that, so then they may get an answer without needing to post!
