AskForAnswer Team: Thanks for Your Support!

It has been two days since we launched AskForAnswer. Till date, over 1,000 people around the world have visited and the number of registered users boosted from a mere 3 to an impressive figure of 100+! As the co-founder of one of the world’s most social Q&A platform, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters and users. Although we did most of the stuff all by ourselves, namely the coding and web design, but without the support and valuable advice from our adult friends, AskForAnswer wouldn’t have been created in the first place.

Yes, Xavier and I have vast experience in social media, web design, web development, Internet Marketing, etc, but we lack the abilities to handle business problems. Our investors can’t trust us because we might not able manage the money well. Also, we are underage to sign contracts too. That’s why we need adults to support us to deal with business:

Carlsson Chee

Carlsson is the Art & Managing Director of Rephlexion Designs, and also the co-manager of Creative Crew Singapore (A Singapore-based Adobe User Group). He has a very outstanding ability in web design and web development. He has helped us to organize our ideas, concepts and also co-operated with us to plan for business proposals. We counted him as one of our team members because we have co-operated with him for a quite a while.

Kien M.Lee

Kien is the managing director of SENATUS, a private social networking website. If you have noticed TechXav’s sidebar, you would realize that Kien is one of the sponsors of TechXav. He supports our ideas, and helps us to elaborate social web concepts with his own experience and views about social networking.

Besides the two of them, Leon CK Leong and Wayne Chia from TechSailor and Zwee Wee from SavantDegrees have helped us too. They taught us a lot of useful skills such as online marketing and enterprise-level application development. These are important because we are not only facing users from our social edition, but also enterprise users from our CRM system which will be launched in the near future.

Users are always the most effective motivation for us. We are now working on Alpha 2.1 version which comes in a better user-interface and some customization features. We cannot run a social platform without your support! Thank you!
