  • Is anyone else not receiving Best Answer points?

    I got one of the Best Answer emails a few minutes ago. But I checked my point record and they're not listed there. Has anyone else noticed this glitch?

  • Why does Yahoo Answers allow Level 7 users to move questions into the wrong category?

    I just had to report 41 questions up to 24 hours old from one category. Plus one that the Yamster incorrectly assigned to that category and one repeated came question. And that was just in the law hour. The only thing they will do about it, it anything, will be to remove this power. And it will be before I reach Level 7 and can put questions back where they belong. If I maliciously moved questions, I would be violated. Why aren't these assholes?

  • Is the Yamster still assigning categories to questions?

    If so, he's doing a piss-poor job.

  • If I've "reached my daily asking limit", how am I able to post this question?

    And where are all the questions I've asked today? All I see in my question history is the last one I asked three weeks ago and the thirteen before.

  • So Yahoo allows full size color ads from the commercial spammers now?

    So the commercial spammers are now putting their usual wall o'text and below it a logo the same size as Yahoo's legitimate ads over on the sides. Was this the intent behind changing to allow media in questions/answers?

  • Why didn't Yahoo remove the report flags from the answers as well?

    Since Yahoo wants us to click on their ads, they removed the report flag from the questions on the mobile version. This necessitates opening the question in a new window, switching to desktop version, hoping that when the flag is clicked it doesn't open any ads (they open even when the flag changes color, indicating it was clicked), selecting type of abuse (abuse is abuse, just get rid of it), adding details if necessary, submitting, closing the window, and returning to the next violation.

    I want comments on the decision they made only. There is a reason for mobile versions of websites; I don't have to use a desktop site for any legitimate reason. I will not use the Spam Board as it is even more work and I will not jump through hoops and work harder than the spammers themselves.

  • What happened to the report button?

    I don't know if it's my internet service or something Yahoo changed or a bug or if I can't report anymore for some reason. Anyone else missing report buttons on the mobile version?

  • What kind of point manipulation is Y!A engaging in now!?

    There is a question that is open for voting and has 12 answers. However, only five of those answers load for voting. How is this justified? Can we now face the truth that Y!A manipulates scores and unevenly applies the rules?

  • How long does it really take to remove abuse?

    The Indian call girl ads that changed into Indian Black Magic ads have incredible longevity. Five of them posted more than six hours ago still show up despite having been "deleted". When my content is deleted, it is gone. This means that Yahoo is allowing the violations to remain so that the phone numbers in the headers, which are the only necessary part for the scams to work, are still visible.

  • Why won't "Appeal" link work?

    Two of my answers were violated yesterday. I decided to waste time opening the emails and jumping through the hoops since Y!A allows others to give the same answers and rewards them with TC status. But the link won't work. Why aren't the "Community" "Guidelines" consistently enforced?

  • Why is it wrong to want some of my husband's time?

    Last summer, my husband was away for two months for National Guard duty. After the first week, he suddenly decided we needed smart phones so we went and got them when he was on leave for a couple days. He then spent the rest of the time he was gone posting stuff and being answered by a female who was "working" with him. When he came home, he had "stuff that has to be taken care of" and was constantly on the phone from the time he came in the door until we went to bed. Of course, he conveniently couldn't tell me what happened. From what I could gather, a male under his command did something inappropriate to his female and he had to follow up to make sure the discipline procedures were completed. I understand that is his job. But that is his job. It does not require being on the phone for 6-8 hours a day after the work day is over. He would literally get out of my car (his vehicle broke down and we couldn't yet afford a new one) with his phone to his ear, walk in the door without a word to me and go straight to the basement and be on the phone for hours. After it was taken care of, he started spending too much time with this female and got very involved with her family to the point that he knows what type of lung cancer her mom has, how her grandma is handling her surgery, and her dad's favorite poker game. The excuse was he was "trying to help her military career" by getting her a job working with him. When I got angry because he was talking to her more than me, he got angry at me and said I was the one who had a problem. He once posted on his Facebook page something like "It's like holding your heart on my finger" with (her name). It is supposedly a line from some movie they saw together. But I thought it was still inappropriate for a married man to be posting so much and that kind of stuff with another woman. My sister in law saw it too and thought the same thing, then he deleted it to make it look like I was making stuff up. She would be texting him until 11:30 p.m. and start again at 4:30 a.m. But he kept saying that since nothing was going on, I was wrong to be upset. Since she got a boyfriend, the texting has suddenly stopped and the Facebooking is at a bare minimum. Now I'm pissed because I imagine that the boyfriend found their involvement inappropriate and they stopped for him, but they still say I'm wrong for finding it inappropriate. He had to leave again this Monday and spent half an hour on the phone with her Sunday night since she's away for training and he hasn't seen her at work for a week and won't see her for a couple more weeks. Why was I wrong for wanting a little bit of his time Sunday night before I went to work and he left for two weeks? I really want someone to tell me I am wrong and why I am wrong.
