Looking to create a website similar to experts-exchange, for another industry (not IT).  Does anyone have ideas on web software packages that are similar to what EE does?  Anyone remember what EE started with when they first opened the door on this site?  I could use a basic forum, but I wonder if there is another option.

    I'm a newbie to EE, so I took a look back to see what it's looked like over the years:*/

    If I were a guessin' man, I'd say that most everything we see on this site is custom, developed over lots of years of experimentation.  I would imagine you could develop something along these line with Mambo, Joomla or Drupal (open source CMS systems), but I don't think you would be able to get most of the features here without some hardcore programming efforts.

    Yahoo Answers has a public API.  Perhaps you could utilise that in some way?

    Maybe a phpBB forum
