Fair enough.  Sounds like it should be specific to what Q&A you want.  Just not sure how this would be advantageous since you have sections to address those types of issues.  

It's similar to stack overflow where one person asks a question and several others reply with an answer. The answers are ranked and the best one selected. This enables people in the future looking for the same answer to find it very quickly rather than sort through pages of off topic chit chat or arguments.

This could be high hopes, Chris. For me Stack Overflow is a great resource but this is foremost due to the 100% responses with sense. That some are good answers or "the" answers is irrelevant to me because it is about the arguments. Then I pick myself the answer which suites me. IOW, no, I never used the feature of reading the one and only answer. Really never. However :

Or offtopic. This time I refer to microsoft.answers.com. This is usually a boatload of sh*t (not off topic but just a lot of shouting). There I *do* look quickly for the best answer *if* I go there in the first place. Too much chit-chat.

Hard to bring across to you, unless you go to both places yourself for the same reasons I do. The feature doesn't combine. It's either all serious and all good arguments and never off topic (which won't exist in CA) or mostly chitchat without a focus to the answer except from maybe a half serious one when the topic just runs and then the answer will be moot because the rest goes offtopic and the OP won't even read all any more (and thus also stops voting for the best answer).

 

This is obviously just my vision and it is only one. No reason not to try it out. If it works, it works. If not, the board will be redundant (as in exists next to the other and remains to be so) which makes it only more vague for where to be. And since you are not going to kill the other boards ... 

However, if it works, you could turn all the boards into carrying this feature, right ?

Is a question like @Allo are you planning to be at RMAF or any other North American shows acceptable?

How would that work out ?

So it could be because someone just said it could be. Now I don't see how ... Example ?

I think this truly could be beneficial, as well as providing one place to get questions answered, freeing up other forums for specific discussion on other topics. It's certainly worth a try.

I envision something like,  how do I upsample to DSD using HQP? This will enable us to use all the features such as up-voting answers and marking one answer the best answer for future reference and quick finding for other readers.

 

I think its a great idea Chris as long as people don't turn it into an objective subjective session and the OP's question goes so far off topic the question is muted by BS.

Hi Peter.  I think it depends very much on the questions.  I am personally thinking of some questions that I hope would work well here, along the lines of this one:

Hi Chris,

 

Great concept and very welcome. 

 

Hopefully only those that have the required knowledge and competency to answer the "specific question" will respond - i.e we get facts not opinions, which after all is what the rest of the forum is for.

 

Good luck.

Seems questionable.  x-D

 

It has a good chance of being an excellent resource and outlet for the wealth of information here.

We like to let adults be adults here at CA, so please use this feature wisely. 

 

...and that reminds me, as I have wondered of late, where is our Samuel T. Cogley these days?...?

Like all things new, we must give it time. 

 Here is a question that should be able to receive a definitive reply.;)

 

 Chris

 Have you given any further consideration to obtaining Lab Reports to go along with some of your more indepth reviews ?

 Given the recent name change to Audiophile Style , this would elevate this site to an even more valuable resource for members and visitors, as well as keeping some members happier.

 

Regards

Alex

You're a "glass is half empty" type, aren't you? ?

I count sixteen questions, twelve with answers.

 

We'll have to start looking at the other 4.  :)

Well IMHO it's not working, is it?

 

Not a single question of any consequence, and not a single answer either

You're a "glass is half empty" type, aren't you? ?
