That's a tough one. Some questions are more difficult to answer than others. For instance, "how do I break up with my boyfriend?" There are a lot of those and they may sit aro…und longer before they are answered. However, who was the third president of the United States is an easier one because it's objective. WikiAnswers has more answered questions than unanswered ones, but new questions and answers are being added every few minutes so the numbers are never static.. To give it some quantitative sense, according to the conference call by Answer's management on August 13, 2007, out of the total 670,000 questions 375,000 were answered. It gives a slightly better ratio that two to one.
Not Paid People who answer questions on WikiAnswers do not get paid. They answer questions because they enjoy sharing knowledge, helping people and being a part of an amazing …Q&A site.

It is a form of opinion. but I think its immense and love it!!
Questions that do not have enough information are questions on Wikianswers that are most likely not to get answered.
unfortunately, all of the questions in the whole world cannot be answered. you can answer them yourself, if you know what the answer is to them, if you become a member of wiki…answers. Many questions are also repeats of older answered questions, if you find these you should request a question merge.
Once you have posted the question you want an answer to, you just wait for someone to answer it, and hope that it's not such a silly answer as the one that was previously supp…lied to this question. Be aware, though, that not everyone will have the answer, or want to answer your question. Patience is required for this website. To find answers to your questions, you simply go to your profile and click on 'total contributions' (new profile), or 'Total' (classic profile). And then go to the filter drop-down menu and click on "Questions (asked)".
Yes, you get one contribution point per answer.
There are millions of questions and answers on Answers.com! People ask and answer questions every second of everyday. Even if we gave a number, it would increase before we got… this answer posted.
While there are many great answers, there is not a single best answered question on the site. Try viewing the Question of the Day on the homepage to see great answers.
On each answer page - there are two pieces of information. One that tells you the name of the first person to post an answer - and one that states the name of the last person …to edit the answer.
WikiAnswers does have a lot of answers to questions... but a lot of questions are also unanswered. One thing to try is to ask your question in a little bit different way. Ofte…n, there is an already-answered question with a wording that is a little bit different. We try to merge those questions together so that people get answers, but it is a big job, and we are never caught up.
