Thanks for the feedback!
Under each answer, there is a red link that says [report abuse]. Simply click this link, and it will ask you what you would like to report. It will generate an email to alert …an admin a problem may be present.
Tell one of your supervisors who it was and say that they gave you an inappropriate response. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/WikiFAQs:The_WikiAnswers_Super_Team You can also cli…ck on the 'Report abuse' link (in red) above the question
Just talk to any Supervisor, and they'll take care of it for you.
Inapropriate answers are given by users who just want to mess up the site and ruin WikiAnswer's reputation. That is why Vandal Patrol and Supervisors are always on the look ou…t to eliminate these vandals, or "perpetrators". It's just because users think it is fun to write down inappropriate content, and Supervisors and Vandal Patrol Units are always on the look out. Since WikiAnswers is a wiki, where anyone can have imput, people think it is funny to mess up answers, when it is not.
Because some people in this evil world don't care about inappropriate things and will post themon the Internet because they think it's cool. The world is EVIL!! To bad w…e live in it.
WikiAnswers doesn't 'block' inappropriate questions, but rather stores them so no one can answer an inappropriate question that has already been asked. It is called a 'Catch-…All', and it stores all of the inappropriate questions so when a user types in an inappropriate question that has already been asked and merged into that Catch-All, they will get an answer telling them that inappropriate questions are not allowed on WikiAnswers. In a way, WikiAnswers does 'block' inappropriate questions.
Here are some examples of inappropriate behavior on the site that will be not tolerated: Cursing and inappropriate language Making fun of a user on his/her message board Ina…ppropriate questions and answers Cyberbullying
Please keep in mind that WikiAnswers is a wiki Q&A, and as such, anyone can edit answers, questions, alternates, and whatnot (Guests can only answer questions/edit answers to …questions.). There are several reasons why people would write inappropriate answers, most of them being vandalism. However, Supers and non-Supers alike are working hard to warn and rid of vandals, as well to clean up the site.
To report inappropriate usernames, you have two alternate choices. One way is to click on the link below to go to the Community Forum in the 'Report Vandalism and Abuse' sec…tion. Create a new topic and that is where you can report inappropriate usernames on WikiAnswers. The other method is to just post a message on a Community Assistant's message board with the link to an inappropriately named user.
Because there are just random people giving random, but maybe accurate answers out there. Like me.
Only questions that are potentially harmful (e.g. contain a full name of a non-celebrity, telephone number etc.) or are very unlikely to be asked again (such a repeatedly usin…g SPAM words in the question title) are deleted. Questions that are inappropriate for the site but may be asked again are placed into a Catch-All Category. For more information on the Catch-All Categories, please see the Related Question below "What are the Catch-all categories on WikiAnswers?"
Whenever I type in questions like 'How do you drink a house' it always blocks me. Why is Wikianswers doing this to me all the time when the question I asked didn't have any inappropriate content?
Just because it does not have any inappropriate content does not mean it is okay for the site. That question would go into 'adds no value' because it is not a serious question… and doesn't help the site as far as learning goes. Chances are someone has already asked the question and it was moved to the trash and it is blocking you from asking that question again.
In DIY Projects
There are two ways to flag a question on WikiAnswers. You can click on the report abuse button below the question or you can click on "flag" in the blue toolbar at the left of… the screen. This will bring up a box that lets you select why you are flagging the question or answer.
In Soap Operas
Coronation Street is a family TV show and it's always shown before the watershed (9:00pm) so they can't legally have inappropriate content in it. In recent years, there has be…en the occasional mild swear word and they often have some violence. However, none of the content gets any worse than this.
We don't want to show anything inappropriate. If you see something like that, please report it using the report abuse link.
Content which is harassing, discriminatory, profane, abusive, pornographic, violent, hateful, biased, illegal, unsafe for children under the age of 18 or 21, and/or unfounded.…
