Been sitting in my queue for a while. GazoPa, which I have written about before, is now offering a new feature, GazoPa Answers, in beta.
GazoPa Answers is at http://answers.gazopa.com/. As you might imagine it’s yet another answers site, but it’s based on answering questions about photos/images or which have to do with photos/images. I remember a site that basically helped you identify things by uploading images of them and asking for help, but the name of that site is slipping my mind at the moment. Anyway GazoPa Answers is for asking all kinds of questions about an image, not merely “What is it.”
There is a page for the various categories of questions, though the front page just gives you a bunch of questions and popular tags. Being so new there aren’t many questions, what I saw ran the gamut, including “Who is the best Thundercat?,” “What does this mean on map?” (along with a symbol), and “How can we make this?” along with an image of Saturn Peaches (also known as donut peaches.)
Questions have their own individual pages which show a larger version of the image, any answers (all the questions I looked at had either no answers or just one), and tags. The GazoPa technology was also used to show images similar to the one which was being asked about, which in the case of this map symbol was partially accurate and partially hilarious.
I can easily imagine using something like this, but there’s not much to evaluate at the moment. You can share the questions on Facebook, but in a pretty basic way — when I tried it it doesn’t even include the images. I didn’t see an easy way to share via Twitter. GazoPa images needs more ways to get the questions out there.
