If users pose a question would it be possible to alert that user when someone offers an answer to that question . By email I was thinking. Perhaps even ask if the user would like the alert rather than automatically just sending one. A lot of users have queries and have to keep scanning the message boards to see if there is an answer. So.... in predicting the Seti team response that this would be a lot of extra traffic......I would suggest that an alert system would save that constant scanning for answers and thus reduce traffic.
