MediaWiki has a great support system and a simplistic forum. But 
newcomers and old hands alike would have lots of similar questions about 
the system, installation issues, or other questions that could be 
answered quickly if there was a better system for it.

We all know the concept of forums, but StackExchange (remember 
StackOverflow? or MathOverflow?) have started a new system where 
questions can be asked, found, answered and sorted very effectively, and 
its even better than Yahoo Answers.

The results are fast and accurate. Great users get reputation, and hence 
more rights. The system has really been a success and with a little bit 
of YOUR help, we could have a StackExchange dedicated to MediaWiki and 
your wiki questions!
