Do you have suggestions for an easy-to-use hosted Q & A web solution which I can customize?  I've come across Qhub but am not familiar with the overall landscape.

Yes, thanks for asking about the specifics. I want to set up a niche question-and-answer site which is open to the public.  Anyone can sign up for membership to ask a question, but only I and other people who I would assign would have"permission" to answer these questions.  The questions would be visible to the public, but the answers would be visible only to members.

I would also like the option for users who pay a fee per question or a monthly subscription fee to ask questions privately of a specific advisor" a group of advisors; these questions would not be visible to the public or even other members, it would still appear in the Q & A format, not an email conversation.  The member would pay a higher fee for the privacy.

The site would also have payment options and permissions regarding the number of questions  that can be asked based on the level of membership which would be based on the amount paid.  It would have to be able to link the membership level with the number of permitted questions. There would be a free membership option, as well but with limited access.

Any ideas for a hosted platform with all or part of this functionality ?
