Law is one of those areas (perhaps even more than travel) where I feel there is a potential for a dramatically different exchange format.
The distinction: The same legal question has different answers depending on where you live, act, store your data, etc.
Has anyone considered allowing ANSWERS to be tagged with jurisdictions where QUESTIONS are not? Jurisdictions could even be geotagged so that users could query by their locale (both to answer and ask).
Although the user interface might look quite different, I think the Stack Exchange model could be very useful: Encouraging civil discussion, focusing on questions of enduring value, focusing on quality questions and answers.
So far I have found:
- Asking the same question for a new jurisdiction is allowed.
- My proposal has been already proposed in response to a suggestion to restrict jurisdictions
