• It seems Yahoo answers has finally made a visible change to the site...Or is it just me who sees that?

    It looks like they changed the layout a bit and the center part is now on the left...if that makes sense.

  • Shouldn't there be a limit on how many times someone can move a person's question?

    There are limits on everything else here. So why not say after moving it around 5 times, they can't anymore. Then the person whose question is being moved doesn't have to sit there and constantly move it back. I've literally had someone moving one of my questions for five months now. I mean it's... show more

I mean it's annoying going back and forth for an hour but five months is some pathetic dedication on their part.

  • I am new in yahoo ANSWERS can anyone tell me about this .?

    Best answer: Yahoo have info how it works, if you look but they have neglected the site badly over recent months. Too many abusers infesting the site, and having free licence to do what they like.
    The Yahoo help numbers are all SCAMS.

  • Why can't YA clean up this site and eliminate some of the categories that draw the pedophiles, etc?

    Best answer: It's always been up to us (users) to report the crap and crud (community moderation -- when it's working, it DOES work) but that system has been mostly down since mid-December and it doesn't seem like Yahoo is in any hurry to fix it. It was working for a few minutes (OK, maybe a few hours) last week,... show more
    Best answer: It's always been up to us (users) to report the crap and crud (community moderation -- when it's working, it DOES work) but that system has been mostly down since mid-December and it doesn't seem like Yahoo is in any hurry to fix it.

    It was working for a few minutes (OK, maybe a few hours) last week, but does not seem to be for the past several days.

    As to WHY? Easy. Yahoo wants MORE activity, which pleases Yahoo's advertisers. More clicks, more $$$ for Yahoo. Yahoo used to actually care about the content on the Answers site and have a staff to oversee it, but that's a long-gone myth and no one at Yahoo cares about what's posted there and no one is still employed there to oversee it. Sad, right?

    Long gone are the days when real people were employed by Yahoo and they helped to keep it clean by dealing with serial abusers and wiping out problematic users' posted content.

    Some categories are worse than others, this one (Yahoo Answers) might be the best/worst because you will see Q & A about the site (which can be very informative), but it's also such a troll magnet and its questions get moved out to irrelevant categories, and lots of violations from other categories get moved into this one, to be reported as violations, I'm sure.

It was posted three times and all three times immediately deleted so it has to be YAHOO doing it automatically. The comment was posted in one of their stories about marijuana and 4/20. The comment: "When I was a bachelor I used to put any dirty dishes in the oven for a quick clean up if someone was coming over. Then would come time to make a pizza. Woops! Plastic handles don't fare well at 425 degrees."

  • When I answer a question it says in red at the bottom False. Why can't i write it? Can you only answer a few a day?

    Best answer: If you see the red 'False' message when you attempt to answer a question, it's because you've exceeded your daily answering limit. Level 1 users can answer just 20 questions per day -- if you try to answer more, you will be unable to submit the answers. Please disregard the incorrect answer about... show more
    Best answer: If you see the red 'False' message when you attempt to answer a question, it's because you've exceeded your daily answering limit. Level 1 users can answer just 20 questions per day -- if you try to answer more, you will be unable to submit the answers.

    Please disregard the incorrect answer about a QUESTION having too many character spaces, which has nothing to do with your question.

    The daily participation limits do increase as a user reaches higher levels, up to Level 4. From Level 4 to Level 7, the limits remain the same. You can read more about that at the following link:

    Best answer: It means no one else can see the questions in you have asked or answered in your YA activity profile. Only you can. My YA activity is private but my email is enabled and i allow followers. Left click or tap My avatar. That's what some else would see if they clicked or tapped your avatar even if you were NOT using the anonymous option. My writing style screams who I am, so it's pointless for me to use the anonymous option unless i am figuring out how it works., and I did that YEARS ago.
