What's the best way to answer and ask Flash questions on the site? A Forum or Blog?

I get questions emailed to me daily on my tutorials and other Adobe Flash questions. Up until now I’ve done my best to answer them back with details in reply emails. I noticed though that many of the questions are similar and I’m confident that the answers to those questions could benefit others who have the same question or problem that aren’t sending an emails, but are still looking for answers.

It’s this reason why I originally wanted to setup a forum to handle those kinds of questions. Someone could pose a question to the community about Adobe Flash and it was my goal to have people help one another with concerns. Particularly those questions that I don’t have answers for.

I setup a forum page originally. It probably wasn’t working properly. I had no idea what I was doing at the time and the forum got 0 interest. Things are different this time and going forward I was wondering what everyone thinks about creating a new forum to handle questions and answers or is it better to handle those issues as blog posts? Both forums and blog posts are interactive and give the chance to get a discussion going on the topic. I have my personal opinions on both, but I really wanted to get your opinion on the difference and how you would prefer to getting answers to questions. So please answer this quick survey with how you feel the better way is to ask, answer, learn from questions about Flash and web development.

If you have any specific questions about this please leave a comment as well. Any feedback would be appreciated. I just want to make this as good as an experience for the viewers of the website as I possibly can. Thanks.

    Thank you everyone who have voted so far, and if you haven’t and have an opinion on the matter please still vote.

    From the looks of how things are going though, it looks like a forum is still the choice for answering Flash questions. The biggest benefit with a forum I believe is the ability for all users to ask their own questions and have participation within context.

    The type of forum I had used previously got 0 activity, but I was also very new to web development when I created it and it was quite possibly a technical issue more than an interest issue. It was also a separate entity, this time around I want to integrate it more into the site, so it becomes a seamless piece of the experience.

    If anyone has any particular advice about it please leave a comment and let me know. Thanks again for your participation and coming to the site. I really appreciate it and I hope you have found it useful.
