I was looking through some of the plugins at the Q2A site and noticed a 
few that could be useful:

- Polls [1]  -- This plugin would allow us to easily do polls from the 
community on what they think of different things.  It has come up in the 
forums that polls would be a good idea for different things, this would 
allow us to do them easily.
- FAQ [2] -- This plugin gives us an easily manageable FAQ page for the 
Q2A system.  It is currently tucked away in the Docs [3] which isn't 
convenient.  This would simply add a new page with (seemingly) easy 
administration in the Q2A Admin section.
- Badges [4] -- This one gives us a nice badge system for users.  It has 
been said that things like this are good for communities.  Why not give 
it a shot?
- Tagging Tools [5] -- This will give us the ability to set synonyms to 
tags to automatically make say "HTML5" be "HTML" so that we keep 
somewhat standard tagging for main tags.
- Markdown Editor [6] -- There is some work going into a Markdown editor 
already (Sorry, can't remember by whom for my life.) but this plugin 
could be just what we need to get the job done.

Thoughts on these?

Thanks,
-Garbee
