You can add www.Leftos.com to the list also. It's a Q&A focusing on the niche of dating, sex, relationships, etc.

Q&A is huge and getting bigger all the time. Every site should have a Q&A for their community-specific questions. The big destination sites are neat, but an answer from a specific community is always better. www.yousaidit.com

This is great, now I can spend all day and night on the computer! It's so much fun asking a question and someone knows the answer, an e-mail delivered with my answer. Have also answered a few questions on Yahoo answers, someone actually gave me a best answer response. Thanks, good research, it's bookmarked.

You forgot Answers Wikia, or for short Wikianswers. This is not from Answers. It's so far the best one I've been to.

There is a new social network called Koowie, http://koowie.com. It proclaims itself as an anti-facebook and craigslist alternative website. The format is in a form of a question so it can be used as a Q&A website though it is really more of a social network.

i like http://www.boodom.com , it's very usefull.

stephanie 3 years ago

Lots of q&a websites are spammy now, you can't really get a great answer fast. Even for quora, you can't really solve personal issue since most of questions at quora are discussions for general stuff like a social event...When it comes to personal, all Q&A sites in the world now suck. likeplum is actually okay but it charges money. First queston is free tho, besides that, it's much better than yahoo answers already.
