I've been soliciting private beta testers for mi.yodeya by posting discussions (without mentioning the name of the site) in a couple of Jewish LinkedIn groups. In one of these groups, FrumNetwork, someone asked the following important question:
It's been online for years and has a well qualified rabbinical staff answering the questions. Why do you need something new?!? Try it today!
I replied, in part, with:
Thanks very much for the important and essential question. AskMoses is an excellent resource whose archives have proven valuable to me on occasion. I am confident, however, that the new site offers unique value in various ways. I hope you don't mind if I take some time to write these up properly. Check here again in a few days.
I have a bunch of such aspects in mind, which, like I said, I'm planning to write up, starting as an answer to this question. But, I'd also love to hear what you think, mighty testers of the private beta: What aspects of mi.yodeya make it especially valuable, such that it's worth creating it despite the existence other tools out there that offer related services?
Note that I'm not interested in discussing the specific drawbacks of AskMoses (or even necessarily suggesting that there are any). Please focus your comments on what's good and special about mi.yodeya, rather than trying to point out what's wrong with other tools.
(Please excuse the meta-ness of this question. I will keep this stuff to a minimum. I really think, though, that this is an important question and that the people who have been trying out mi.yodeya so far ought to have particularly good insight into it.)
