• How does the scam with the yahoo answers award thing work? i know its a scam but what is the scam?

    Perhaps you're talking about our Yamscars? It's just one of many fun promotions we like to do with our community. This week we're looking and recognizing our Level 1 users, Level 2 users and the user with the most Best Answers (w/o point gaming). We don't always announce the winners on our blog, some would like to remain anonymous.... show more

  • Why is my question never getting answered?

    Hi Justus, We took a peek at your questions. All your questions are the same and in the details you provide the Japanese symbols/letters. Posting the same question over and over with those symbols is a big red flag for our spam filters. So most of your questions are not getting posted. We recommend asking the question once and using less symbols. show more

  • Why am I unable to open appeal page. I feel one of my answers was unjustly reported.?

    Best answer: Hmm it's definitely not a manifestation from "we don't care." It's simple, it's a bug. If your question gets reported, the appeal link works fine for questions. We still haven't been able to figure out the root cause for answers. We're still working on it. We apologize for the error, but we do have an... show more

  • Why doesn't Yahoo Answers give you a notification when someone comments on your answer?

    Hi Kasky, Yes, this is something we are working on. We're still piecing together when you would actually get notified. Do you want to get notified every time there is a comment? Or just once? And do you want to be notified if you're not the answerer or asker, but just wanted to comment. Lots of scenarios, so we want to make sure we piece... show more

  • Do you think Yahoo! Answers needs to get rid of the "Hidden Answers" feature?

    Best answer: Thanks for your feedback on the "Hidden Answers." We've seen some complaints on this and even some of our answers have been hidden. We will work to make this better, but we don't have any plans to get rid of it. Thanks again!

  • Why does YA automatically place my questions into sections?

    Hi Patato, A few already mentioned, but we do use keywords and automatically place your question in a category. We had quite a few members dropping when asking a question so we decided to make the process much faster and easier. Of course, we don't always get the category right (still fine tuning) but you can always go back to your question and... show more
    Hi Patato, A few already mentioned, but we do use keywords and automatically place your question in a category. We had quite a few members dropping when asking a question so we decided to make the process much faster and easier. Of course, we don't always get the category right (still fine tuning) but you can always go back to your question and above it click "Edit Category." Then you can place it in the category you want! And yes last, L7 users can move questions into other categories. So make sure they're not moving it to a location you don't want. Hope this helps!

  • I really hate this new Yahoo Answer?

    Hi Jim, The new navigation is now rolling out in CA and already in the UK. Feel free to elaborate and let us know what you don't like about this version. We can't go back to the green format unfortunately, but we certainly want to make this one better. Thanks for your feedback!
