We are launching a new Question and Answer site, http://ask.uosecondage.com
The purpose of the site will be to provide a better format for getting help from the community. Forums fail to a large extent to provide this service, because the same questions are asked and answered over and over again as the old answers get buried.
The format of the new site puts an emphasis on questions and answers only, and is moderated by users through voting.
I would like to be sure that everyone who is not familiar with this format reads the FAQ at http://ask.uosecondage.com/faq/
The logins for the Q&A site are not forum integrated, but are integrated for Google, Yahoo, Facebook, and other OpenID providers. We hope to add this functionality to the forum soon as well.FAQ wrote: A Question/Answer community is different from a typical forum because it focuses on finding answers to the questions of its members. A typical forum, by contrast, operates more like a discussion group, where people are free to give their opinions and topics tend to be more subjective.
By keeping a laser focus on questions and answers, this community ensures that finding answers to existing questions - and getting answers to new questions - can be done without any distractions.
Impersonation of other known users on the Q&A site will result in a nickname change. Please sign up using either your known Identity, or a new one. This is an established community, and people do value their existing reputation. If someone has hijacked your nickname please contact me in IRC and I will verify and fix.
It is anticipated that AskUOSA will replace the following support forums: "Server & Client Support", "General Questions: New Player Section - FAQs and Help". It is not intended to replace any Discussion forums, such as the Era Accuracy forum, although Era questions should be asked there, if it's anticipated that the questions actually have an answer.
Strong user participation will be needed for this site to succeed, so please check it out, and Ask a question.
