Hi,

For those that follow both biostar and seqanswers, I think it would be great if Biostar Related Questions would show similar content posted in seqanswers. If there's been a question already answered in seqanswers, it would help us all having it pop up at Related Questions when typing it in biostar. Who is in charge to talk to that can make this happen?

Technically Biostar is a much nicer Q/A forum than Seqanswers that runs on vBulletin. It will be hard to convince people to abandon Seqanswers and come to BioStar and visa versa. Integration will be very difficult from a technical point of view - easier to rely on people copy/pasting answers from one forum to the other.

+1. And if you follow both, please answer questions by pointing to the relevant thread in the other forum. No need for any technical hocus pocus.

A technical no-go I'm afraid, but thanks for asking :-)

There are 125+ questions at SeqAnswers on the OSQA platform that are under CC BY 3.0 and could be considered for import (http://i.seqanswers.com/)

I am an avid user of both seqanswers.com and biostar.stackexchange.com and I would like to suggest that both sites benefit from the content it's being created in both sites. There are many ways of doing this, here is my personal suggestion:

(1) Content from biostar.stackexchange.com is inserted into a "biostar" section of seqanswers.com after it's been inactive for a while (1 month?). If one then does a search in seqanswers.com, one will benefit from seeing content from biostar.stackexchange.com. The content could have a link to biostar to easily redirect the user to it if so desired.

2) Content from seqanswers.com is inserted as "seqanswers" tagged into biostar.stackexchange.com once it's been inactive for a while. If one then does a search in biostar.stackexchange.com, one will benefit from seeing content from seqanswers.com. Since biostar has an autocomplete feature for suggested existing questions after typing the question, the question could also redirect to the seqanswers.com URL if so desired.

I am really looking forward to be able to easily query the content of both sites, I am sure there must be a technical option that pleases everybody.

I also posted this proposal here: http://seqanswers.com/forums/showpost.php?p=44355&postcount=1
