I don't see where this is so much better than what exists - to me it looks like a forum without sub-forums, where (at least on the LO and Ubuntu sites) not that many people vote and "answers" are basically posts. And surprisingly considering the size of the Ubuntu community there aren't as many answers as I would have expected.

I would think making the existing facilities better would be more cost/labor efficient and imo and what would be a worthy  goal in supporting the community would be is to provide responses to all questions asked on the Forum, if one looks at the number of unanswered questions that number should not be considered acceptable.
