    EVERY question that receives at least 1 answer, was answered in 'minutes' (nobody said how many minutes it would take). Yahoo does not guarantee that a question will get answers, just that they are "usually answered in minutes".

    .

    Some reasons questions don't get any/many answers are: 

    *They are posted at low YA user times of day 

    *They are posted in low activity categories 

    *They are poorly worded or not understandable/gibberish 

    *They are complex and not many would know the answer 

    *They don't interest the people who saw them 

    *They are trolling or aren't questions (but statements or requests) 

    *They are posted in the wrong category or not the best category to get good answers 

    *Some users refuse to reply to a question posted by a user using the Anonymous (blue face) feature 

    *Your question is only visible to you due to it being hung in the spam filter (log out of your account OR try viewing your question in another browser in which you aren't logged in to your YA account. If you can see the question, then it's fine. If you can't, then go into it and move it to another category, then back where it belongs. Check it again with a non-logged in account. Once you can see it, you can feel sure others can see it too).

    Not all Questions can be Answered within Minutes only some Yahoo just says that to Encourage people to Ask Questions

    Most people ignore stupid or pointless questions.  That seems to be the only kind you know how to ask.

    Its not a guarantee. If the question is too obscure, it may take hours. Or days. Or never. Very few questions never get answered, but it does happen.

    They were and you got good answers (around 15 minutes each). The gaming question is really impossible to answer. Only you and the company know the real answer. One more thing, note it says USUALLY answered. You asked them at a very low user time for YA.

    It was answered within minutes.  Buy a new watch and go talk to your 3rd-grade teacher and your spelling.
