ibiblio recently acquired some really cool troubleshooting software that grants our community members the ability to become resources for each other.

Like a real-time FAQ, answers.ibiblio.org allows users to browse questions that have been posted on the forum, browse the answers to those questions, and if possible provide answers of their own. Questions and answers can be voted up or down by users, so the more members that participate, the more valuable and useful the forum will be.

If you have a question about anything ibiblio-related, chances are, someone else out there has had the same question. Also, chances are someone out there has the answer. Answers.ibiblio.org is here to bring those parties together.

Answers.ibiblio.org is an implementation of AnswerHub made possible by a generous gift from D-Zone.
