Hi Q2A community :)
After working with this platform the last months i need to express my opinion and my thoughts about Q2A.
The reason that this project is dying as many people discussing here is that Q2A really lacks of some modern functions. This is how a modern forum must work:
1. After succesfull User Registration force the user to Follow/Favorite at least 5 tags.
2. Display Activity (Questions/Answers) at the home page based on the tags the user favorited.
3. A better Multi-search autocomplete field that will search for Questions, Users and Tags. Like this one here: http://easyautocomplete.com/examples.
4. A better Notification and Messaging System. I think that you already built a plugin for that in the past.
5. Following Users and Be Followed By Other Users. This Can be easily done by modificate the existing "Favorite User Function". I already did that with success and now i m displaying Different Pages for Favorited Questions, Favorited Tags and Users as well.
6. A new Fresh and Modern Profile Page. I also built that for my website.
7. And at the end a very Good Function That will keep the users visiting again and again the site is a fucntion that will allow the user to be informed (Email or/and Onsite Notification) when a question is posted under a tag that this user already Followed.
Example: I as user "xxxxx" make a question tagged with the tag: #Sience and you are already favorited this tag. Then the system will send you a notification to you that the user
"xxxxx" posted a question under tag #Sience so you will be able to answer at the questions/Topics you are interesting for.
8. A good working User Mention System that works out of the box with autocomplete ajax search.
9. A new Fresh Theme that will make the difference. ( i 'm also working now on that ;) ).
I am pretty sure that if we pay attention to those features then the Q2A Platform will become unbeatable ;)
I am here to help/contribute on anything has to do with User Interface and Design and more. Lets do our best for this platform because it deserves the best. Lets keep the project Alive. All together ( Developers and Designers) we can Transform this project into a gem !!!
