About Us

CommunityForum’s mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. Not all knowledge can be written down, but much of that which can be, still isn’t. It remains in people’s heads or only accessible if you know the right people. We want to connect the people who have knowledge to the people who need it, to bring together people with different perspectives so they can understand each other better, and to empower everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world.

CF on this site is Stand For Community Forum.

The heart of Our Community is questions — questions that affect the world, questions that explain recent world events, questions that guide important life decisions, and questions that provide insights into why other people think differently. CF is a place where you can ask questions that matter to you and get answers from people who have been there and done that. CF is where scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, mechanics, and homemakers take refuge from misinformation and incendiary arguments to share what they know.

Great writers help you understand why the world works the way it does, why people behave the way they do, and what we can all do to make the world better. Millions of people search the web for answers and millions of people write answers on CF, every week.
CF’s answers come from people who really understand the issues and have first-hand knowledge. CF is the place to read Barack Obama on the Iran deal, prisoners on life in prison, scientists on global warming, police officers on how to deter burglars, and TV producers on how their shows are made. CF is where you can read important insights that have never been shared anywhere else, from people you could never reach any other way.
