Have you every been hard at work and thought “how do I do that again” Trust me we have all been there. When this happens I normally do what a lot of us do which is google it.

What’s a Q&A Site
it’s important to understand what a Q&A site is. The simplest definition can be found in Wikipedia:
“A Q&A website is a website where the site creators use the images of pop culture icons to answer input from the site’s visitors, usually in question/answer format.”
While this definition mainly refers to the traditional type of Q&A sites, the whole concept is still the same.
