    Looks like you actually included Quora and Aardvark but omitted the “second-fastest growing Q&A site online” (ComScore): FunAdvice.com.

    FunAdvice has unique features that no other social Q&A sites have:
    - a mature filter
    - status updates
    - ability to link youtube or photos to questions AND answers
    - a unique follower model
    - a friend feed

    Check it out. It should no doubt be on this list.

    @Dara When I was testing FunAdvice, it banned me because of the username FreeNuts, that’s why I do not include it in the post.

    I found Quextit.com.. it is rather interesting than other Q&A sites..

  4. Posted July 28, 2010 at 9:32 am | Permalink

    @Young Come to Quextit.com. There is no banning.

    @Urban You can delete the whole conversation on the Aardvark website, for the other websites, I think you can also do the similar thing, but not for sure.

    You have a good list but I would consider mahalo more of a discussion forum. if any highly technical question is asked on technology or law it usually goes unanswered. formspring is a new on me but I will check them out.

    Another one you should add if you update this listing is Quextit, which is also a sponsor of the FIRST Robotics competition (Dean Kamen’s brainchild).  Quextit sponsors the competition by providing the official game Q&A.  First hosts the service themselves at https://frc-qa.usfirst.org/Questions.php.
