  • Is the YA policy of allowing level 7 users to change the category of questions a good one?

    Best answer: No, and many people think Verizon should disable this because it has been, abused to death, just like community voting for best answer was abused to death.

    ALL account levels CAN MOVE their own questions, but NO ONE should NEED to play category ping pong with their own questions.

  • Is there anyway you can make it so you have a higher chance of people answering your questions on here?

    Best answer: If you want more, but serious answers, there are several ways to improve the chances. 1. Write very detailed, complete sentence, correctly spelled questions. They are much more likely to be picked. 2. Ask during the high user times. For the USA 6-10pm New York time. 3. Don't give a lot of extra not needed... show more
    Best answer: If you want more, but serious answers, there are several ways to improve the chances.

    1. Write very detailed, complete sentence, correctly spelled questions. They are much more likely to be picked.

    2. Ask during the high user times. For the USA 6-10pm New York time.

    3. Don't give a lot of extra not needed data and don't write speeches in the added details. That turns people off.

    4. If you are looking at questions on personal issues, this is probably not the site to get serious answers. Make the questions less about you and more about people in general.

    There are several general reasons questions are not answered.

    1. Dear Abby type questions
    2. Obvious violations
    3. Anonymous askers
    4. Easily googled
    5. Asking about very archaic things that people have little interest in
    6. Not enough detail - give all the information needed (especially when asking about violations)
    7. Questions that would require us to have your phone or computer in our hands to answer
    8. Wrong category - always double check and move if needed
    9. Medical questions - the answer is ALWAYS "see a doctor"
    10. Too time consuming
    11. Too much extraneous material to read - we don't need your life story
    12. Homework - one question may get answered, but not ten and showing your attempts helps
    13. There is just no answer the way you asked the question - try rewording
    14. Poorly written questions (all CAPS and bad grammar for example)
    15. Using text and twitter speak instead of English
    16. Really technical questions
