Hi,

I was thinking to build a website where registered user can create a topic and others users submit comments about it. Which is the best approach? Build it from scratch or use a CMS?

depends on your theme and your skill in databases and design and all this stuff...

Personally even with all my skill in the work needed I would still go for CMS..

what would the reviews based on? I could help you out for free if you want.

You are correct. CMS save a lot of work. Thanks!

SiteSell.com offers this type of feature with their Site Build It! product. SBI! provides a complete set of tools to research, build, and maintain a site. It also includes the option to add their Content 2.0 feature. It's an interactive feature where visitors can submit topics and other visitors can comment on the submissions.

Content 2.0 is really easy to use and you don't have to have any skill in databases or design... It does all the backend stuff for you.
