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.
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.

Hello I just want to convey my opinion and appreciation to the people that read QUORA. I just recently came across the site and realized that people were asking questions about an area I have substantial experience. I have no problem conveying my experiences, opinions and suggestions in hopes that it will help the readers in some way which will benefit them or someone they care about. Being incarcerated is not a pleasant experience in my opinion but through the years I have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge that has helped me to change my life, extend my life and enjoy it in much more rewarding ways than being locked up. It’s a real shame to see these young men 17, 18 , 19 years old commit crimes that will send them to prison for decades or their whole life. I am sure it is a real wake up call for them once they arrive but then it’s just too late. I also felt bad for the young men who have lost their lives serving our country in Uniform. It is the ultimate sacrifice a young man or lady can do to help defend this country and maintain it for the rest of us to enjoy. Fortunately I had the opportunity to serve this country and not have to give my life in its defense to which I am grateful. I enjoy conveying my experiences on this website and I hope it can help some of the readers.
