  • Why did everyone misunderstand my question?

    Best answer: English is a funny language. In context, "do you" can and does mean "is it appropriate." Say you're learning ballroom dancing. You might say to your instructor, "Do you start on the left foot?" You aren't asking if she personally starts on her left foot, but whether that's... show more
    Best answer: English is a funny language. In context, "do you" can and does mean "is it appropriate."

    Say you're learning ballroom dancing. You might say to your instructor, "Do you start on the left foot?" You aren't asking if she personally starts on her left foot, but whether that's the right way.

    You're at the laundromat. It's not like the ones you've used before. You ask the guy at the next machine, "Do you put in the bills before the coins?" You don't want to know how he does it, but you're asking what works.

    So I hope you'll cut some slack to the people who interpreted your question in a way different than you meant it. Next time, word it without that built-in ambiguity.

  • Are you having a hard time asking questions?

    Best answer: It would help to know what happens when you try. Several things can happen: 1. If you take too long, you can lose the connection (type outside Yahoo and cut/paste to get around this) 2. You have exceeded your daily limit (does the word false appear?) 3. You exceeded the character limit (is the box red with... show more
    Best answer: It would help to know what happens when you try. Several things can happen:

    1. If you take too long, you can lose the connection (type outside Yahoo and cut/paste to get around this)

    2. You have exceeded your daily limit (does the word false appear?)

    3. You exceeded the character limit (is the box red with a negative number?)

    4. You have a bad cache file on your system, clean and reboot.

    5. Just copy your question, refresh the page and paste it in again.

    6. Certain links will cause problems, post without them and add as updates.

    7. Symbols such as % will cause problems on mobiles. Spell it out.

    8. On mobiles, try Desktop mode.

    9. If it submits, but is not in the category, try this. Move to another category, count ten, then move it back again.

    Sometimes when that happens, the question did submit, the problem is the next screen does not come up properly.

  • Why is no one answering my questions? :(?

    Best answer: Some reasons questions don't get answered are:
    They are posted at low YA user times of day
    They are posted in low activity categories
    They are complex and not many would know the answer
    They don't interest the people who saw them
    They are posted in the wrong category or not the best category to get good answers
    Your question is only visible to you due to it being hung in the filter (log out of your account OR try viewing your question in another browser in which you aren't logged in to your YA account. If you can see the question, then it's fine. If you can't, then go into it and move it to another category, then back where it belongs. Check it again with a non-logged in account. Once you can see it, you can feel sure others can see it too).

    EDIT: Looking at the 1 other question I see you posted, I wouldn't be able to answer it. i don't know what 'amsr' or whatever it is you keep repeating in that question, even is. On top of that, you're asking us why you feel a certain way, and that's something to ask a therapist or psychologist. I can't explain your feelings and since I don't even know what you're referring to in that question, I can only assume there are other people who wouldn't know either. I moved the question to Psychology for you, but not sure you'll get answers there either if people don't know what your acronym stands for.

  • Is anyone out there being chosen Best Answer or have been in the last couple of months?

    Best answer: You need to understand the tone of the "question". Most are not questions at all, they are begging to be validated in their opinion. Few are seeking knowledge. To get "Best" you have to guess at what the poser is asking for, and then provide it. I have posted researched and detailed answers... show more

    I have posted researched and detailed answers only to some spammer get picked by just posting "yes".
    I believe some are posting as anonymous and answering their own questions for points.
    Email notifications are Hit & Miss. So, click "Notifications" (by the bell) in the upper right and check you answers. Always vote "thumbs up" for your answer so it will be listed in the Notification List.

  • Why does yahoo now seem to be tailored for people with low IQ, no life, athiests, basement dwellers, the inexperienced, and leftists?

    Best answer: I am none of the above
    But I am more disgusted in the fact that Yahoo Messenger is quiting on 17/7/18
    I am disabled and I desperately need it
    I have been using it for 20 years
    I don t know what I can do without it
    I hope you don t think this is ranting and delete it
    Because I am very concerned
    Come on Yahoo
