making "posts" instead of "questions"?
The following suggestion isn't relevant for all askbot use cases, but perhaps many: At asksage.sagemath.org we are running something like a user support page for the software sage, and it would be nice to be able to write "questions" that are really more like "posts": people could post examples, make announcements, etc.
Having it through askbot rather than an email list would allow people to vote, comment, reply/modify, vote on replies, etc. -- these are the main reasons it made sense to switch to askbot for user support. Of course one could use "questions" to make these posts, but separating the functionality could be useful (e.g. it's fine if "posts" remain "unanswered", or if they turn into discussion threads, and it encourages users to post their good ideas even if they're not in response to a particular question).
This came up when someone did a comparison of asksage with mapleprimes, a support site for Maple which has a "post" function in addition to an "ask question" function. Of course I mentioned this on asksage too, but this seems like a more natural place to put the suggestion.
