The Rise of Answers Within the first 90 days of the launch of Atlassian Answers, our content numbers would be the envy of any community manager: 1485 questions, 2269 answers, and 1398 comments.

In projects where all parties are not continuously communicating, misunderstanding what you are supposed to do can be costly. Even small misinterpretations of a required feature can lead to wrong things being implemented, wasting days or even weeks of work before the error will be found out and corrected (if it will, that is).
