I'm excited to report that Ask a Question, has launched this morning! Ask a Question is a separate area of this website where users can ask and answer fellow users' questions.
We've created this feature because we saw a need for something more specific than the Sharepost "comment strings" that you all have been using to ask your questions. Now, you can just pop a question into a box, and our users and experts will be there to answer. It can be short-winded or long-winded, medically oriented or lifestyle oriented. Whatever your question, just go ahead and ask it. Chances are that someone out there has the same question as you.
Here's how it works:
-Each sharepost page and article page has a widget (see below) where users can both type their questions and see recent questions that have been asked. Upon asking or answering a question, users will be prompted to register for the site.
-Users will be able to access a full "see all questions" page, where they'll be able to sort by the date the question was asked, how many answers it has, and whether is has been answered by an expert.
-Expert answers will be visibly separate from community answers. Our experts have been briefed and are waiting to answer our community's questions!
