• Why is it that when I hit the edit button, the only option it gives is to make it anonymous?

    My answer has some typos in it that I want to correct, but I cannot, since the "edit" button is a fraud.

    Best answer: Points Table

    To encourage participation and reward great answers, Yahoo Answers has a system of points and levels. The number of points you get depends on the specific action you take. The points table below summarizes the point values for different actions. While you can't use points to buy or redeem anything, they do allow everyone to recognize how active and helpful you've been. (And they give you another excuse to brag to your friends.)

    Levels

    Levels are another way to keep track of how active you (and others) have been. The more points you accumulate, the higher your level. Yahoo Answers recognizes your level achievements with our special brand of thank you's

    And finally, as you attain higher levels, you'll also be able to contribute more to Yahoo Answers - you can ask, answer and rate more frequently.

  • Can I delete a question I asked in yahoo answers? Plz tell me how if it is possible?

    Best answer: If i'm not mistaken you can't delete questions yourself. they could get flagged and taken down, or if no one has answered the question after seven days i believe yahoo takes it down themselves but you can't take it down

  • Is it fair for Yahoo answers to suspend an account without giving the user the reason the account was suspended?

    I can't very well appeal it if I have no idea what the suspension was for.

  • If you have a bunch of accounts, will Yahoo know about it?

    Best answer: You can have "a bunch of accounts" and they won't care UNLESS they interact with each other. Ask a question with Account #1, answer with Account #2, award "Best Answer" with Account #1 -- you might get away with it once or twice, but Yahoo knows who you are and could close ALL of your accounts. show more

  • Why the BLOODY HELL does it keep saying "sorry we couldn't post your question right now"?!?

    Best answer: Glitch. Keep hitting submit and usually on the 3rd try for me, the message then changes to "you have already answered this question" when I didn't even know it was posted. Keep trying, it'll eventually work.

  • What's the point in answering half the questions here, when a few hours later they have disappeared?

    Ridiculous reporting gone mad? I got a BA from Andy Lucia for a question about May this morning, now its gone, along with half the other questions I answered. Give it a rest will you, you self appointed monitors!

  • I just made level 4 but I don't like the question format--can I get it changed or go back to level 3?

    Best answer: Ask enough questions and you will go back to level 3, but the question format will not change. Each question still costs 5 points, no matter what the YA format is. The green format is history, and NONE KNOWS what Verizon is going to do..

  • How does yahoo determine which accounts get suspended?

    Best answer: None of us know how Many have to report or how high of a trust rating a member has to have in order for an abuser's account to be suspended. Not too long ago, I could send in the URL's & a few vios as evidence to the YAT & said abuser/s would be suspended Very fast! But that's when an actual... show more
    Best answer: None of us know how Many have to report or how high of a trust rating a member has to have
    in order for an abuser's account to be suspended.
    Not too long ago, I could send in the URL's & a few vios as evidence to the YAT & said abuser/s would be
    suspended Very fast! But that's when an actual 'warm body' named Lou looked at My emails and punished the abusive account/s accordingly. Accounts are still getting suspended for Any number of reasons, but Lou is gone and I've NOT received a "thank you" email from the YAT in almost a year.
    Seeing as ALL said abuser needs to do is make another account - suspensions are Nothing more than a smack on the hand, a loss of worthless points which makes the effort of the reporter/s a waste of time unless said abuser/s change Their violating ways. To be honest - I've NEVER seen that happen.

  • Why has my question been removed and I gained 50 points?

    I have posted a question that does not disobey any rule but I am surprised that it was gone after it reached 100+ and I have got 50 points instead. Why has this happened?

  • Why does it say I have less answers than I do?

    It was over 1,000 and now it's saying it's only 993. I didn't lose any points. This isn't the first time this has happened.
