First time here? Check out the FAQ!

askbot vs. OSQA

Hi When will we have a version which has all the OSQA features + askbot's unique features, I really really want to use askbot cos it so much more modular, in short I want to migrate from OSQA if I could.

Is there any timeline? Can I provide bounty to speed things up? My QA site currently have users so I really want to migrate without interrupting service.

Keep up the good work! /A

Hi Antonio,

Thanks! Could you list the most notable features? - that would really help.

One thing that would bring the most speedup is bringing another qualified programmer to work on the project. With some donation money it will be possible. I'll set up a donation box. Thanks a lot for your interest!

Version 0.6.7 (I think it will be out in one-two weeks) will have some user moderation tools with several user levels, it will also have tested email notifications including instant emails.

Hi Evgeny, Thanks for your reply. I will try to do a bullet list of what is I am missing. As for the bounty/donation, not sure about the sum but pls mail me directly. I am very keen, however I don't have access to bright programmers and would like to migrate rather soon. Thanks
