I am new to SharePoint and I'm trying to create a simple, intuitive Q&A section on a company intranet page. The section must be simple or it simply won't get used. Basic discussion boards have failed in the past so I am hoping for something with an interface similar to StackExchange that can be driven by email alerts.
The true goal is to allow the user to ask their question under a preset topic, and an email alert goes out to a predetermined group of "experts" notifying them of the question. When an answer has been provided, an email alert notifies the original user.
The idea is that everyone is too busy to monitor a message board and most questions need almost immediate responses. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
