  • Sort of. There are three major differences: 1. If you post a question on a typical message board, you could receive many different answers. Which one do you trust? Who's right? On Answerbag, each answer can be rated, so reliable answers will filter to the top. 2. On most message boards, your question will roll off the front page after a day or two, and your odds of being answered become very low. On Answerbag, we focus on your questions and getting them answered, and your question will remain right on the page where you posted it until it is answered. The answer will then remain there so others can learn from it and vote on it, helping you to know if that answer is reliable. 3. Answerbag can automatically email you when a question is answered. When submitting a question, just check the "Notify me by email when an answer is submitted" box. If you want to be notified when someone else's question is answered, just click the link below that question.
  • Maybe at first it wasn't but now it sure seems to be. Consider these points before you delve into AB: 1. Just like message boards, if you post a question, you could receive many different answers OR you may not recieve an answer at all. Your question will possibly be hidden away behind many layers of categorization and it'll take years before anyone finds it. Will you still be interested then? Probably not. At least with message boards you can queue your question back to the top by writing your own little message response. There's no way to queue your questions back to the top on AB. Now, which one do you trust? Who's right? -- YOU'LL NEVER KNOW FOR SURE! On Answerbag, each answer can be rated, and the majority of rates go to popular answers not factual. So, most of the time crap will float to the top. 2. Just like message boards, your question will roll off the front page after a day or two or until people have lost interest. On Answerbag, the focus seems to be recieving answers from a nation of dimwits. Your question will remain in the category where you posted it until every nimcompoop has had a stab at it. The answer will then remain there so others can 'learn' from it, have their IQ's drop, and then vote on it, helping you to know if that answer is popular. What a treat!! 2½. Another function that makes AB very similar to message boards is the ability to comment under an answer. YES, comment. It's like, oh, adding a message. Hmmm, message boards do that. So, if you need clarification or want to praise the troglodyte who answered, you can do so in comments. Generally the comments tend to veer totally off topic and become very social, e.g.: "I like your Avatar, cool!" "Thanks, I like yours too." "Let's be friends." "Where do you live?" ... <-- All that completely relevant to the answer...NOT! 3. Answerbag can automatically at random and erratic intervals email you when a question is answered. When submitting a question it is automatically added to your watch list. Don't click anything, that's how you get into trouble. If you REALLY want to be notified when someone else's question is answered then add that Q to your watch list too. All in all, I suggest using your local library and purchasing a good encyclopedia and dictionary. Don't get me wrong, I like Answerbag. It's lots of fun. Tony the Tiger thinks Answerbag is Grrrrrrrreeeeeaaaaatt!!!
  • Only the AB blog is. It's a compendium of unique questions asked by users who wish to obtain answers to their questions. They can either be conversational or factual type of questions. I don't think it is a message board. It is much more than that.
