    The frum world is facing many challenges And also has many talented people that can offer their advice & experience. Would the YWN readership be interested in such guests being invited to answer questions interactively with the tzibbur?
    Topics like Chinuch Habonim, Parnossah, Kiruv Richokim, psychology, communities, etc. There really is no live forum I know of where Frum Yidden can interact with experts in their respective fields. Questions could be posted beforehand & screened before being posted.

    How do you define “interactively”? Once questions / comments have to be screened you lose the “interactive”.

    Yeshivas should focus on procuring a sufficient secular education for their students before anything else.

    Expert experts agree that experts usually have an agenda.

    that is because the expert experts you mention have an agenda that people shouldnt take experts seriously

    not really sure what experts you are referring to considering small the comments are made by “experts”

    Meno: Certainly, considering the Judaic education is likely going to be sufficient already, given that it’s a yeshiva.

    There’s no such thing as “sufficient” when it comes to learning Torah.

    DaasYochid: Your comment completely disregards my original point and is a straw-man fallacy.

    How does it disregard your point? It disagrees with it, and it is not a straw man argument, unless I misunderstood you. Feel free to explain.

    When I wrote expert, I meant a person with years of experience & professionalism in a given field. Of course, everyone has an agenda or personal interest to promote otherwise they wouldn’t waste their time sharing their knowledge.
    For example: would you be interested in posting questions to a professional career coach about possible under explored parnassah opportunities for yeshiva type people?
    Which college degrees are not worth pursuing because the market is saturated with graduates looking for a job?
    Someone experienced in real estate investing: Is there a conservative way to enter this field without undo risk?
    A person experienced with kids at risk, How to give them the space they need without lowering the standards for one’s other children?
    Accountant: Is there a simple way to manage the books of a home business?
    My point is that There’s a lot of useful knowledge we can learn from each other if the right medium existed to share that information. I’m wondering if YNW could provide the platform for this interaction.
    (A secular site with this kind of idea would be Quora.)
    I prefer learning new useful information to reading anonymous posts on any random topic.

    Maybe “interactive” is on a spectrum. Think about how sometimes “Live Footage” comes in at a 5-10 delay, just in case something inappropriate pops up and they need to do a quickie content fix.

    I suspect in such a forum real questions will get censored and only softball questions will be allowed

    So you mean, instead of asking for a free consultation from your brother-in-law the accountant, your neighbor the doctor, and the lawyer guy who sits in front of you in shul, you’ll just consult the experts here?

    An expert is merely one who can provide authoritative sources in support of my opinions.
