Why can't we receive feedback on why we lose questions and points? It bothers me because I rephrase it to sound better, and I still lose?

    NEVER have users been told specifically what specific violation their removed post was. Sometimes the post wasn't a violation, but it got reported enough to get it removed anyway (which is why the appeal function exists).

    Posts are removed when enough users report them as violations (there is NO specific # of reports required to get a post removed, it varies). You can post again here and ask "Was this question a violation" and include the exact text of the question, including any updates, URLs, or images associated with it, and the users here will tell you if it appears to be a violation or not. If not, you have 7 days to appeal to have it reinstated.

    We can

     If you want to know the reason for the violation, post "Why was this question (answer) a violation?" and QUOTE the question (and answer if that was deleted), VERBATIM in the details-box

    Violation Email Notices are Broken if you want to know why something got Reported you need to Post on here a Brief Description of what the Questions were and we may be able to give you a Idea of why it got Reported 

    I would Recommend you Read the Rule Book to see if you can Figure out what Rule it was that got your Question Deleted 

    If After Reading you find you did nothing wrong you can Send in a Appeal for it 

    to Appeal go here

    https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?page=conta...

    Select Contact a Yahoo Specialist then Appeals then Follow the Instructions from there

    Well if you provide as much information as this every time you whine about having a post deleted how do you expect anyone to tell you what you are doing wrong other than to just assume you are a troll, just like most of the people that post anonymously or hide their posting history?     Do you expect us to take your word for it when you are too chicken to even stand behind the posts you make?

    You don't get feedback from staff because Verizon is not going to spend millions just to tell you to stop chatting. If you want to know the reason for the violation, post "Why was this question (answer) a violation?" and add any details you remember so the users can see the exact context. The experienced users here will explain it to you. Many times the violation is not in the question but in the added details and updates.
