Quora review

I have generally enjoyed reading Quora. The ancient history section is particularly interesting for me. Today I read an interesting piece on politics called the White Elephant in the Room which discussed how people in forum should take a breath and relax and show respect and truly read what colleagues are saying. He suggested people might actually change their opinion on certain matters. I remember when I would drive from my home in New York to Yale University, I would listen to an Evangelical channel. My colleague it’s whom I shared an office asked me why. I need to know what people of a very different opinion think
The section on education is overly repetitive, and most of the questions could be answered by a simple google.
Though there is a great deal of repetition in general, there are some interesting points and opinions. I don’t know if this site has an administrator (which it needs for the repetitive questions) or works by some algorithm. Anyway, no one is forced to respond to every question that might be one’s area.
The atmosphere is relaxed and have not seen any disrespect or nastiness that are part of other forums.

Frustrating to Navigate

After having used the Quora app for about two years, I have come across a few annoying issues that really ruin the experience of the app. Firstly, every time I open the app, I have to wait for the app the respond to my touches. It can take anywhere from around 10 seconds to almost 20 seconds. I don’t know what it’s doing in the background, but it’s annoying. Next, when I want to search for a question, it seems to freak out and freeze the whole app. It opens the keyboard, and I can type on it, but there is a massive delay from when I press a key to it being displayed on the screen; it only happens when I open the app after not using it for a while. Next, very often when I am scrolling down through my feed and I tap on the “read more” on an answer, it doesn’t respond to my touch as if the read more button doesn’t exist. I can tap and tap as many times I want, but it will not open the answer. Tapping on the answer itself does nothing either. This happens randomly and I don’t know why or what triggers it. The last issue is the most annoying of them all. When I’m reading the comments, and I accidentally swipe left or right just a little bit, the whole app with hang and not respond at all. I have to manually close the app and reopen it again so it can work. These issues sometimes hold me back from even opening the app. Overtime, it seems that more problems are being made than fixed with every new feature update.

Quora is Good but could be Better

Quora is a question-and-answer forum that allows members to ask questions that other members may attempt to answer. The best responses to the questions are from people that have first-hand knowledge of the topic in question, though anyone may choose to respond. Quora encourages members to list their education, work, degrees or titles and other qualifications, to inform readers of their background in responding. That can be helpful, as it indicates the basis of knowledge that informs the respondent’s answers (though I find that common sense can trump formal education and degrees in producing quality responses).

Quora also offers members the opportunity to form pages to discuss topics that might not be of interest to the general membership but interests a smaller number of people. I think some of the motivation for that is to reduce conflicts between members with very different points of view.

The big weakness of Quora is how it’s moderators police the site, with some members allowed to make strong statements or hurl insults and their content is not deleted, while other members might have their responses deleted for similar or even less offensive content. Quora is run from San Francisco and thus is a site that caters more to Liberal ideas and thus plays favorites. I wish that were not so, but it’s life.
