What question and answer sites have high quality content?
January 10, 2014 6:41 PM   Subscribe

There are a large number of question and answer sites out there, but very few which provide good answers. The ones I have found that tend to provide good answers are as follows: * StackExchange Network (including StackOverflow) * Ask MetaFilter * Quora * Reddit (on particular sub-reddits such as Ask Science, Ask Historians, Explain Like I'm Five and sometimes Ask Reddit) Are there any other question and answer sites out there with a high quality of questions and answers? I'm particularly interested in finding sites while they are still small

The Straight Dope message board has a "General Questions" section that's often pretty good.

This might be taking the idea of "question and answer" website to a ridiculous level, but Kaggle?

If you expand your purview to specialized-topic forums, there are sites like College Confidential (admissions), Student Doctor Network (premed), Purse Forum (luxe shopping), and You Look Fab (fashion) where people often ask questions and get high-quality answers.

Chowhound usually does pretty well with food questions.

ShaveMyFace.com has a warm, welcoming community with a lot of enthusiasm. Very niche, though.
