WikiAnswers At the beginning of 2007 we officially changed our name from FAQ Farm to WikiAnswers. We did this for a variety of reasons: * FAQ Farm has great meaning but it is subtle. Most people don't understand it right away. * FAQ Farm can easily be confused with similar sounding or similar looking names such as Fact Farm, Fat Farm, or worse (try replacing the "q" with a "g"). * We have been a wiki since 2004. Many people didn't understand wikis three years ago but more and more people are coming to understand the term. * In November 2006 we became part of Answers.com. WikiAnswers connects with the Answers name better. For more of the background debate on whether to make the change, see this discussion from the summer of 2006: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Discuss:Should FAQ Farm change its name to WikiAnswers.com
