Compesh is a question and answer website that people can use to ask each other questions and answer each others. There is also a group feature which functions as a blog and having status updates. This is so that the website breaks down into smaller groups.

If you find a thread interesting and would like to see related threads, simply click the tag to find other threads which are assigned to that tag.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is this a yahoo answers, jelly or quora alternative and why would you make one?
Yes it is an alternative I made because yahoo answers and quora censor people and jelly shut down.

Compesh is a freedom of speech forum. As I have been banned from 16 places online for being politically incorrect despite not breaking any rules, I recognise there is a demand for a freedom of speech Q&A forum.

What did you use to make the website?
PHP, Codeigniter, Sublime Text, Photoshop and various javascript libraries, classes, and icons from Iconfinder. Go to the assets folder of this website for details.

Why is it called Compesh?
A compass tells you where to go if you are sailing in the sea, but I can't call it Compass as it is too generic and there are lots of companies and websites called Compass, so I called it Compesh instead.

Will there be an iphone or android smartphone app for Compesh?
No because I don't see a need. An app wouldn't provide any benefits over the mobile website, as the website is fast and is not to be used as a multimedia or chatting app.

How do I format my text and insert images?
A rich text editor is coming soon.

Why did you opt for usernames instead of real names?
Given the highly charged #metoo era, political correctness and people in western countries (like the UK and America) being offended too easily, it is not safe for people to post answers on a Q&A website with their real name, photo, location, workplace and employer, for fear of getting fired from their job.

Also some topics such as intergender dynamics, politics, religion, mental health, and domestic abuse are considered to be sensitive topics due to the amount of arguments they cause, potential for damaging people’s reputation or how much risk a person can face from stalking, harassment and bullying by posting about those topics.

How long did this website take to make?
3-4 months

How do I export my content?
The feature to export your content will be added into Compesh will be added later. It's planned that you'll be given a JSON file of all
your content and will be able to view it by loading the JSON file in an open source viewer.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
