Asking and answering questions

You’ll notice that there are two main sections on the homepage; General and Social.

General: Strict guidelines. The focus is to help people get the answers they need.

Social: Relaxed guidelines. Answerers are encouraged to express their opinions and flex their sense of humor. Social works best when you want to learn about people.

When asking a question, consider what type of answers would benefit it the most.

Oh, and the name?

Where did we get the name? A fluther is a group of jellyfish, like a gaggle of geese or a run of salmon. “Fluther” is pronounced /'flʌ ðɚ/, and rhymes with “brother” and “mother”.
