    I want to be the first to leave a comment, for once :-)

    The site is wonderfully made while the translation engine seems flawless.

    A few improvements which just came to my mind :

    • Creole CAPTCHA words :-)
    • More close integration with Social Networking (While Facebook connect might increase registrations Facebook comments might however be a problem to moderate)
    • Provide more functionality on the home page (Example : Add voting icons)
    • Make the top left logo click-able
    • A mobile version?Why not :-)

    The aim of this blog post is to share this link as well as get feedback and suggestions as well. Constructive criticism is the most welcomed.

    Wouldn’t it be nicer if the people behind CleverDodo inserted a list of categories as well?

    Love the website so far! :)

    @yashwin : Thanks for the feedback..

    a) Creole captcha is not practical as the website is offered in 3 languages at the moment. Moreover, when people solve captchas on the site, they are helping to digitise books (see reCaptcha for more info)

    b) I’ve looked into facebook connect and it imposes many restrictions such as email address of the users which I need to send notifications of new answers etc

    c) For the voting icons, i’d prefer the user to look at the whole question before voting because on the homepage, i list just the subject and not any additional message for the question

    d) Mobile version, why not. I was thinking of an iPhone app :)

    @W T : We’ve got a list of categories to choose from when you ask a question? Where else would you like to see categories?

  • yey!

    @W T
    I suggested this feature and the developer is implementing that as well as other features in the next update.

    interesting work by Gices!
    its a bit like Stackoverflow.com concept.
    it would be nice to know if there is a panel of ‘experts’ who will answer the questions and moderate the BEST Answer. and as time passes by, makes sure the best answer is valid and accurate.

    @jp lol.sa bizin rode ene top best answer pu sa!

    Along the same lines, another website has been created for Mauritians: http://www.answers.mu

    With one major difference though: Top users will get gifts every 3 months! :)
