    THIS subcategory is for questions about how Yahoo Answers works or the rules here.

    Yahoo Answers in general was created to be a database of knowledge and information. So, the type of questions acceptable here are ones from people seeking real information or from people wanting to benefit from the experience of others. You may see a lot of questions of the type of "what's your favorite color", "is she/am i pretty", what do you think about <username>", or "i like this guy, does he like me back" and those are all chat violations. For the first 3, the answers don't provide useful information to anyone, and for the last one, no one can know the answer (we aren't mind readers). Consider if the question you want to ask (or see posted) is one that other people may benefit from the answer to or answers given. If not, then that question is probably a violation.

    What area?

    Yahoo!Answers is meant for questions that other people will have in the future. If we ask and correctly answer them now, they can do a search for it and get the answer right away instead of posting it and wait for an answer.  [whether the search works is another matter]

    Questions about now, yesterday, tomorrow, specific Y!A-users or about the answerer are not  allowed.

    This specific category is to ask about how to use YA and to ask about glitches or problems. It is really cool to read down the list of questions to make sure 100 people have not already asked the same question.

    Literally anything. Though it is advices to exhaust google search before turning to yahoo answers because most people on here are idiots and will give you false information.
