Hi, I was just wondering if there was a way to set the parameters of a Y!A question BEFORE it was posted, or does the...?

...or must the question be submitted FIRST, then and only then, can the parameters like "category" be revised in edit, as opposed to being set from the moment of posting?

    At one time you could select the category before posting. Changes were made to the site, and the result was a YA algorithm that selects the category. The algorithm is sometimes way off base, so the question asker may need to move the question once it posts.

    you cant before the question is posted after its posted you can pick it before you post it yahoo will try and guess what category to place it in based on key words used in your question if its not placed correctly you can move it to move it go to your question under the blue edit menu click on edit category then select the new category to put it in then click submit
