The site looks great and your php, javascript skills looks good.
But you will have security issues if that site gets big.


http://www.answerg.com/includes/ <-- wide open. Showing all filenames etc.

set folder permission right (alt put a blank index.php file there), that would make it a bit harder to lurk out all filenames at least.
Right now I can even see the exact code of your form validation.
Thats unnecessary.

I think the (Question Resolved) and (new answer) thing is very good thou. And I find the searching of your site to be quick and smart.

the ability to get a close up of peoples faces when clicking on one would be a extra future you could consider!

Out of curiosity.. what does the G stands for in answerG? :)

lol, your quick on the security fix... either that or I just got on that one moment when it was processing haha... 1 second I got on there and then I refreshed and 403 header... good job

Good design and it validates... that's great. I don't see very often sites that validate so it's kind of a celebration for me when I stumble on a valid site :lol:

Nice idea... (the site I mean). There are a few interesting answers out there... read a few :)

Maybe give the option (for the registered users) to hide their names from publicity (at least for non-registered users)? Gives them a bit more privacy... otherwise, its all good

Couple of quick comments on look/feel.

I think you've overused the "reflection" effect in your main logo. It makes it look a little messy. I'd at least remove the effect from the "beta" and the "ask what you need. share what you know"

Users images looked warped. I think this detracts from the overall professionalism of the site.

UVBoy - thanks. good information. i've removed those too much reflection effects. will do something like croping tool when uploading for user images. so it will be ok.

Great job you have done. I like the design very much. Why didn't you still increased your page rank. Take steps to improve your page rank and advertise your site. Your website will definitely become very popular like yahoo answers.

hey, the site is excellent. I want to share an issue about the site, while i was registering, i didn't fill in the right 'verification code', so the new page should have only the code box resetted, but all the fields got resetted. So it is a bit of inconvinence, to fill in all the fields, so i guess, when the new page comes, it should have only the error field and the password field resetted, all other fields should have their original value! And i asked a question, but that question didn't appear anywhere...

I got where the problem is: when you write just the question, and don't fill in any description, then it does not appear, so i guess, this should not be there, giving description details should be kept optional!

A good site. But the third box on the left have the different size with the top two. It makes the site a little unconfortable.

It now works fine...

The right content used to be under the left content when it should be on the right content... guess you either fixed it or it was the glitch of the moment :)

It is not bad. But you have a big competition, like yahoo answers. But good luck.

Good luck on your site. It does look cool, but I would add more color.

Also, I would change the default avatar which is plain and makes the site look a little unfinished. I think nothing would be better actually.

You really seem to take care about your users and it does feels good. (security tips, no ads)

Looks good to me, I like the ease of use... But again, beating a dead horse.... you need traffic
