Edit: Perhaps you could raise the count of interest to 5, that would be perhaps better when these interests are “tags” of questions.
I am already excited of what you will say to this idea!
Hopefully you will agree that this should be integrated (=
I think it would be very good to boost the activity of members of the qaengine portal. To achieve this and not only to enable them to post their own questions you should consider to add a “suggestion feature”.
While registration or via custom fields in profile a user should be able to choose up to 3 interests.
These interest are in reality simple tags of questions. Or maybe categories, but tags would be more precisiosly.
Then there should be an extra tab besides “votes”, “latest” and “unanswered”, called “suggestions” or something like this. Only visible for logged in users a single user would find all unanswered questions based on his/her personal interests (question tags).
To show you what I mean I made a little example.
You can see the suggestions tab with questions all tagged with “facebook” because
“Facebook” is an interest of the logged in member!

What do you think about this team enginethemes?
This feature is integrated for exmaple in the biggest german qanda portals gutefrage.net and werweisswas.de
I think you shoud really consider to add this – it would be awesome and its not very difficult in my opinion to add (=
I think this feature is very important for an effectiv q&a community. Hope you understand my needs. So any feedback on this?
Here is an example of on of the largest Q&A community in germany – how they are implementing this into the registerform with simple extra fields and how it works (the red text):
Totally agree to your idea. It’s necessary to keep the people active. Who wants to search on his own for questions. A tab you described above would make it. Like the “discover-page” of spotify. Nobody searches on his own for new musik.
Is this integrated, I will buy this theme.
Nevertheless awesome work. Keep on going!
