Users share their opinions:
- It depends on what you wants to know. Wikipedia is like an encyclopedia, and gives detailed articles on the given topic. WikiAnswers, on the other hand, gives specific answers to specific questions. They are both good for their intended purpose.
- No. WikiAnswers suffers from a small number of active
participants and the resulting lack of peer review.
Additionally, the questions are often asked in a context-free way, which makes providing an appropriate level of answer difficult.
- I'm not sure. Some things you can find on Wikipedia and other things you can't find on WikiAnswers. But you can also find things on WikiAnswers that aren't on Wikipedia! Very confusing, really.

Comparing WikiAnswers, Wikipedia, and Google is difficult. They are totally different, and exist for different purposes.

If you mean 'Does the Internet have better answers than WikiAnswers?', then that question depends on what type of question you are talking about. The Internet may have some better answers to questions than WikiAnswers, but I would highly recomend WikiAnswers because WikiAnswers is a Q & A site, (Questions and Answers) but the Internet is not. So if your wondering about which one is better, the answer is WikiAnswers. Hope I answered your question!
Is Answers better than Wikipedia?
They do different things. Wikipedia is more like an encyclopedia with articles on different subjects. Answers/WikiAnswers is a specific question-and-answer site. There is some information that might be the same, but this is a site where you can ask questions you can't find the answer to anywhere else.

Is WikiAnswers com the best?
There is actually no correct answer to this question. While some users think that there are things better then WikiAnswers, others love WikiAnswers. In my personal opinion, I say no, there are better things then WikiAnswers. I'm not saying that I don't like WikiAnswers. It's just that there are things more important like my parents, my family, God, friendship, and other things in life. WikiAnswers is fun but don't let it be your whole life, and I think a lot of users know what I'm saying. I love WikiAnswers but there are things more important than the internet and the computer.
Is WikiAnswers related to Wikipedia?
WikiAnswers & Wikipedia Although each of these two sites is a "wiki" site - meaning that the public in general supplies the information - WikiAnswers is not associated with the online encyclopedia Wikipedia; WikiAnswers is a question and answer site. WikiAnswers uses a modified form of the MediaWiki software that Wikipedia also uses, so editing on one site is very similar to editing on the other. However, Answers.com - the parent site of WikiAnswers - does include content from Wikipedia. So what exactly is Wikipedia? It is a wiki-encyclopedia, containing pages written by the public as accurately as possible to serve as a free, "open-source" encyclopedia. Wikipedia gives an all-out definition with extreme accuracy and many, many paragraphs of information, while WikiAnswers allows users to answer a specific question, the 'human' side of the answer, so it is defined well enough for the asker to get the information they want right away, rather than sift through pages of information.
