Our code is based on MediaWiki (the software made by the creators/collaborators responsible for Wikipedia). But it has been customized quite a bit, and the more we make changes here the more our software evolves independently.

A Wiki is a website using a particular type of software that allows users to create pages for easy dissemination of information. WikiAnswers allows people to use a Wiki format to get Answers to questions.

The Wiki software can be purchased and placed on a private intranet.

WikiAnswers is a wiki, your question is meaningless.

WikiAnswers does not run on the MediaWiki platform, and it is not associated with the Wikimedia foundation. WikiAnswers runs its own custom software, that is not at all related to MediaWiki. WikiAnswers is owned by Answers.com, and its software is constantly being updated to deliver the best user experience possible.

Yes, Wikipedia is similar to WikiAnswers in the fact that there are users who can edit anything, and that they both use the Wiki format.

People can use WikiAnswers to ask questions to ordinary people, and answer questions from ordinary people.

Your wiki name is your username. You have to have an account to have a wiki name.

Depending on the use, it is normally wiki, from the Hawaiian wiki wiki, meaning quick.The capitalized form should only be used informally when referring to projects such as Wikipedia or WikiAnswers. In formal use, these should be written out so that readers will know which Wiki you are referring to.

A wiki is a site where users collaborate on information. WikiAnswers is a question and answer wiki, where users collaborate on questions and answers.

Wikianswers is a wiki, not a person and therefore cannot technically know anything. All answers provided are from people who use the site.

Wiki then say answers.

WikiAnswers Is Not Part of Wikipedia...But it uses the same concept - a Wiki.A wiki refers to information that is dynamic, open to change, constantly being improved, and based on user-generated content. Wikipedia is a wiki-based encyclopedia, whereas WikiAnswers is a wiki-based Q&A community and site.

There are many good answers on wikianswers. Unfortunately, as with any public wiki site, there is a risk of vandalism and unintentional wrong answers.

If the particular wiki software supports the proper character set, then it should be possible to do this. Please realize, though, that WikiAnswers is not a chat site; chatting should be limited to an individual user's message board.

Milestones in the Creation of WikiAnswersFAQ Farm was started in 2002 by Chris Whitten (a pioneer in the Q&A arena). In 2004 we made a major change when we adopted "wiki" (comes from the Hawaiian language, and means "quick" in English) software to use for our Q&A farming.In November 2006, we became part of Answers.com. And in January 2007, we started using WikiAnswers as our official name.

Each of those is a separate company: Jimmy Wales founded Wikipedia in 2001. Wikianswers is an entirely different organization. The first wiki (a type of software) was written by Ward Cunningham.
