I just thought I should address this as there has been no clarification of this yet on the new site. In the new posting system you have the option to make a post an answerable question (right above the "Create New Topic" tab at the bottom.) Of course people are free to use this however they like, but how it is intended to be used is like the popular answers portions of other searchable sites. So if someone on another site writes in "What does E=MC2 mean?" then it is an answerable question and the best reply can be chosen by the creator of the thread. In the case of Comic Vine, it is meant to be used as something which can provide an answer. For instance "In which issue did the Hulk lose to Wendigo?" not "Can the Hulk beat Wendigo?" The first question is a matter of fact, the second is one of opinion. The opinion type of questions work better as polls as opposed to questions. As I said above, it is to the user's discretion as to how this is used, but I thought I would just point out how it was intended to be used.
