I am using this extension since a year almost and I can only recommend it for everyone searching for a free questions-answers component. The support is great, I requested a bug fix for SEF URL's and the team is following up with it promptly. They have placed a huge effort to get this component for us free. Thank you!

Thanks a lot for the review. I am a bit late in updating my component in JED as I am busy upgrading it with new functionlities. I am adding a group system where only a particular group can be allowed to answer and view a question. Its almost nearing completion and will be released in the end of mar 14.

The componenente works very well, you can give or take away points depending on the user action, to qualify based on the scores by rewarding the most active users and more functionalities.
In short, allows you to create a complete site type to yahoo answer!

I must say the developer of this component is most helpful find a bug a new version is out same day or the next with the bug fixed. Very good component especially for being such a new one. I have a feeling in the next few weeks this component will be much better than the commercial ones out there right now. Keep up the excellent work. Right now this component is as good as any of the paid ones out there

This is a good alternative to some other commercial extensions. Though it lacks some additional features I feel they can make it more better. Only one issue i.e a person who asks question should not be allowed to answer his own question. Some restrictions can be added. Also css should be improved though its not a big deal.

I am happy that this component is released for free. i used this component and found it lacks some small improvements. First admin should be able to mark any question as resolved. Next it display only two level categories. Why not more. Also need to bring some point systems. Hope this is implemented soon.
