Open-ended-questions.org discussion system
Some things that are missing:
A reputation system
Tagging questions, search by tags
A question list page for "mostly unanswered" questions
Optionally disable horizontal layout
What do you think?
- 4 replies
- UPiotr @user_161
Two more things:
- make it easy to vote on other (e.g. small tags 'interesting!', 'funny!', etc)
- make upvoted comments better visible (so you can easily look for the best pieces)
- maybe a bar with buttons, and depending on your preferences you can highlight posts with particular tag (a'la predator vision modes from AvP ;)).
My friends (whom I tried to being here, but with not much success) mention also:
- optionally disabling horizontal layout,
- e-mail integration (i.e. not only you get full text for answers (if notifications switched on)) but also you can answer directly via e-mail.

But two things are must:
- 'pending approval' (it still happens to me all the time),
- you need to collect a number of people and make them talking on any topic (it's crucial to have seed of non-random discussions), then people will see "cool, we really need to use it as well" and will adopt :).
