Talkyard

A structured discussions platform — brings together the main features from StackOverflow, Slack, Discourse, Reddit/HackerNews, and Disqus blog comments.

  • Save time. People find help "instantly", in Question & Answers topics.
  • Crowdsource feedback and ideas. Discuss, upvote, choose the right things to do.
  • Collaborate, in team chats.
  • Talk with your blog readers, in embedded comments.

For your co-workers / customers / students / volunteers / contributors / users.

You can use Slack and Mattermost etc for day to day teamwork, combined with Talkyard for the more important discussions that you want to find in a nice-to-read format, months and years later.

Or use Talkyard for customer support, or for schools and students helping each other.

How does Talkyard compare with StackOverflow for Teams, Discourse, Slack, Facebook Groups, Disqus? — Find out here.

Question and Answers

Avoid mistakes

See if others disagree with something, so you can avoid following the wrong advice.


Avoid mistakes


Recent replies — find them:

You leave for lunch, or go home over the night — and return to a Question-Answers topic the next day. Did someone post more replies, when you were away? You want to find and read?

You can directly find the most recent answers and replies: Open the sidebar, click the Recent tab, and find the most recent replies, click to scroll.

(But at StackOverflow, Reddit, HackerNews etc, it's hard to find them (since the discussions are threaded). You need to carefully scan the whole discussion from top to bottom.)

Chat:

Notifications via email, as of now. Some time later, there'll be a PWA mobile app with push notifications.

Blog comments:

Like Disqus — but lightweight, no ads, no tracking. Configure in the Admin Area, the Settings tab, the Embedded Comments sub tab. — Read more about blog comments, and an optional hosting service, here: https://www.talkyard.io/blog-comments

There's a Disqus importer — talk with us in the forum if you want to migrate from Disqus to Talkyard.


blog comments


Embarrassing questions, creative ideas:

Let your students ask anonymous questions. Maybe they feel ashamed for not knowing? — Or let your co-workers submit ideas and feedback, anonymously. Maybe they feel worried their ideas has crossed the border from Creative to Crazy? They can un-anonymize themselves later if they want to (per page). (Anonymous posting first needs to be enabled, by admins. Here you can read more: https://www.talkyard.io/-239/is-there-anonymous-messages-support-for-the-full-talkyard )

Anonymous posts has been implemented, but not code reviewed and merged.
