I have an extraordinary question: is there a plugin for Confluence which enables us a forum like this Atlassian Answers?
Our developers need such a tool where advises, codes, etc could have been changed. Hence we have a Confluence with 6000+ users it would be worth to have this forum in there.
There are two, sort of.
Adaptavist have a forum plugin at http://www.adaptavist.com/w/products-plugins/premium/forums/ - that's been available for quite some time.
At the Summit though, Atlassian announced Questions - it's not quite a forum, but it's heavily based on Answers here and is effectively Answers inside Confluence - have a look at https://www.atlassian.com/questions
My experience (from a couple of years ago) with the Adaptavist forum plugin is that it is a proper forum, and it is not like Atlassian Answers.
So if you're looking for a typical forum type structure, it is a very good. However, if you want something very much like Atlassian Answers, then it probably isn't what you want.
Rumi, I'm sorry, I've just realised I haven't mentioned "Bubbles" at all.
Bubbles is the old name for Adaptavist's community forums - they are different pieces of software, one paid, one free, different code, and most importantly, different versions of Confluence supported. But they do much the same thing.
Try http://www.adaptavist.com/doco/display/Bubbles/Community+Bubbles+Plugin - you probably want to try version 2.0.4 for Confluence 4.x first
Perhaps this is what you're looking for? :)
Although this this post is rather old, I'd love to recommend a great social network add-on / app.
Microblogging for Confluence allows for a seamless and direct exchange of information with your team directly in the collaboration system.
Just like Twitter and Facebook, a microblog in your own Confluence enables short, spontaneous communication and quick distribution of information without switching context and media - directly in Confluence with all it's comfortable features.

To anyone who doubts that Atlassians are a little too obsessed with collaboration, and tools related thereto, let me describe a recent discussion we had (which took place on our internal Confluence, ...
