I've just added a new feature to the site: an Aha / FAQ section for each article.
You can add an aha! moment or question, and vote / discuss them individually. This extends [aha.betterexplained.com](http://betterexplained.com/articles/share
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at http://betterexplained.com/articles/site-update-ahas-and-faqs-for-articles/
Thanks Audrey! Yep, I’m interested in seeing where it goes, I’m mostly trying to build what I think will help organize some of my disparate thoughts. It’s all about the journey! =)
What a great idea, Kalid. I find it fascinating to watch something like this evolve, especially when the evolution is driven by the people using it. This way everything and everyone moves forward, and even if we don’t know exactly where we’ll end up, we’re walking together. Wow corny. But true!
@kalid Love the idea! This way you can get feedback on what worked and do it again. But I think they’re being abused. Many people think they’re a replacement for comments, and since they’re above comments, they’re more visible.
Like how ping-backs are better than crawling Google as you get high-quality and fewer (more might intimidate people) results, the same way this should work. I think you should have a “Convert to Comment” button, like on some versions of StackExchange. Also, a big poster explaining this might help.
Anyway, keep up the good work and get more intuitions work
BTW, are the Ahas and the comments processed similarly? i.e., can we use all the Markdown stuff we can use in the comments?
