Best platform/site/initiative is for Daily Answer Writing for MAINS-2017 ?

Happy New Year folks !! Wish you a great year ahead and a last year for UPSC preparation ;) ;)

Coming to my post, we all know the importance of daily answer writing practice for MAINS examination. For the same reason we have following doles/free answer writing platforms/initiatives:

1. INSIGHTS: Absolutely Crap Questions. Doesn't necessarily cover imp current affairs. But peer review is good. High participation.
2. FORUMIAS: Decent questions. Focus on Current affairs. But participation is low compared to insights. And low peer review.
3. IAS BABA: Do they have any ? Went through site couldn't find any such programme for 2017.
4. CIVILS DAILY: Good Questions. But participation is abysmally low.



Verdict:
FORUMIAS based on

  1. Coverage of current affairs.
  2. Decent Number of questions.
  3. Sensible Questions.
But still it lacks good participation.

Whats your opinion ? Which one is best to start answer writing practice ?
Yeh definite ka kya matlab hota hai ??

    Because questions posted by insights doesn't make sense. They just copy paste intro lines of an article and add directives in the end. They doesn't even focus on important current affairs.

    This is my opinion. Others may differ @killerjoe
