Q&A is a different discussion style offered on Khoros Communities, typically as an add on. You would need to ask Khoros about your specific contract to find out if it is included or an extra cost. Rather than having a topic and then replies falling below in chronological order, Q&A has questions and then answers below them. Q&A also has the ability to leave comments on questions and answers. Q&A has its own set of quirks to be aware of. If there are multiple answers there will be an open box under each answer to leave a comment. In our case we decided to collapse comments to avoid this but now it is difficult to notice when there are comments. Our only use for the Q&A was a single board to test out the discussion style before deciding if we would roll it out across the community. In usage is where we discovered the oddness of the comments but also differences in reporting metrics. Forums report on time to first reply, while Q&A reports on time to first comment which isn't an apples to apples comparison. In your case, it comes down to the needs of your community but I would at least investigate it to find out for yourself. As for the quote function, it appears to be turned off here in the Khoros Community but here is a screen shot from ours where is it present right next to the macros pull down options. .
