    Looks like you haven't actually answered any questions yet.

    If you don't see an Answer Question button when you click onto a question, then the question cannot be answered. It may be in voting or already resolved. You can only answer open questions.

    To answer a question, click the word "Answer" on the green bar near the top of the page, then you can browse questions in all categories or you can choose a specific category.

    You'll notice at the top of the questions list are 3 tabs: "Open", "In Voting", and "Resolved". Choose "Open" for questions that you will be able to answer.

    When you click on a question you will see a blue "Answer Question" button. Click on that, type in your answer, and click "Submit".

    Not really possible but you can check by clicking the "My Activity" tab and scrolling down to see "Activity Details" where it shows you a list of your most recent points activity.

    You should see for example:

    You answered a question 2 points (14 hours ago) View Question...

    Thanks for visiting! 1 point (45 minutes ago)

    You voted for a best answer 1 point (9 minutes ago) View Question...

    You asked a question -5 points (1 day ago) View Question ...

    Maybe if you answer a question, you always forget to click on the continue button then SUBMIT.
