• Do you thumbs up your own answers?

    Best answer: I do sometimes, but I usually wait until somebody else does first. I'm not sure why but that's what I do. The really puzzling thing for me is why does Yahoo even allow that? Every other interactive site that I know of doesn't.

  • How do I thank multiple people for answering my question?

    I asked a question in mathematics with my grandson and 3 people responded with helpful answers. We are only able to choose one best answer, which is unfortunate. How can I thank these gracious people?

  • Are the English mongrels?

    Are the English mongrels?

    Best answer: Here's one of many visualisations that show there is very little that can be defined as English genetically.

    But you know "We do not look even remotely Germanic. We are clearly aesthetically above them as well."

    He said in a language principally comprised of Germanic etymology.

  • What will you gain if you have high points on your Yahoo account?

    Best answer: Though Yahoo! Answers is point driven, with it's purpose is to allow us users to both submit questions to be answered and answer questions asked by other users. In other words, a community Q&A website. I'm a person who truly likes and wants to help others. At times I, too, am in need of an answer from a positive person who truly poses qualities answers rather than their absence. In both cases both parties will contribute to maintaining a mutually beneficial dynamic. And, that is favorable to me, helping others who help me, and that is what I desire to gain rather than high points.

    (If picking one I would have to say respect. With respect being a two way street. Since respect means a feeling of admiring someone or something that is good, valuable and important. With like minded individuals, of course)!

    Good Question :)

  • Now the categories is back. What happened?

    Best answer: Is your mobile device in desktop mode? That is usually why the categories disappear, or you you loe the WiFi connect or internet connection.; YA is run by Servers and computer programs NOT Yahoo or Verizon staff. Yahoo staff DOES NOT answer the YA questions.

    Best answer: First up, note that it's not Yahoo that deletes questions. Yahoo Answers is a community moderated website. This means other users "decide" what gets deleted though them reporting content. Whether or not it is deleted upon reporting depends on your trust level. Someone with a high trust level can remove content with just their report. Others with low to average influence will need others to report with them to knock something down. There's no fixed number of users needed to report posts which result in deletions. It may be 1, 2, 3 or a lot more. Nobody reads reports unless an appeal is submitted. Since you did not post the reported question in the description, there's no way to make a judgement if you really were in violation or you weren't. Also, you should report violations as and when you see them.

    Note that false and malicious reporting may happen. Being someone who sometimes answers in LGBT, I know that it can get really heated because of clashing opinions (Religion and Politics being the other 2 most heated sections). Some people are so juvenile and spiteful that they will go as low as to report someone just because they have a different opinion to them. It may be that the reporter doesn't like you or your questions, doesn't agree with them or is just out to cause trouble without targeting anyone in particular, which is quite honestly very childish.

    You should have been sent a Report Notice (RN) in your e-mail if you've selected the option to receive these things. That RN will have a link where you can appeal your deleted question. Have a quick read of the Community Guidelines (CG) and/or Terms of Service (TOS) before making an appeal, or else you'll get docked an extra 10 points for each wrong appeal that you make. After reading the CG and TOS, if you find that you clearly were NOT in violation, then you can appeal the deletions in the link given in your Report Notice. Hope this was of some help and made sense :)
