What would you like to do?
Is the time between the answers and the questions shortened to save time on Jeopardy game show?
Portions of the show not affecting the outcome have been edited. I very mush doubt that saving air time is one of those things, they would cut any dead air where nothing is happening to move the show along. They do tape 5 shows each day and that doesn't leave that much extra time. The longer the studio is being used the higher the production costs. It is not just a few people involved in putting together the show, but a huge staff of professionals.

Why doesnt WikiAnswers just say answered or not answered beside the questions because it would save a lot of time?
Umm, they do people make an account and find questions they know the can answer, ok?

Jeopardy like Wheel of Fortune record a week programs in a day and also work for at least 3 and as many as 5 days in a row when the studios are set up for recording programs. …You could then say that they record a months shows at a time, just not on the same day
Because the show was designed to provide an answer for a category and the contestant had to come up with the question. It gets confusing because if the contestant words must b…e in the form of a question, then it can not be the answer which is what Alex Trebek has read.
Why do people answer questions they do not know when those people could have saved trouble and time by not answering the question?
Some people are just curious and trying to figure out how the site works, so they answer a question just to find out how, even though they don't know the answer. Other people …don't really understand how the site works, and they think that if they see a question it is directed at them, so they answer the best they can. Still others will just be bored and writing whatever they feel like. While it is very true that these people could have saved themselves and the community some time by not answering at all, this will continue to happen. All we can do is work on education, and on cleaning up and perfecting those types of answers when we see them.

Because it makes people feel good to answer people's questions and show your knowledge to the world. It's fun to think about how relieved/happy the person who asked the questi…on might be if they finally get an answer to a question that's been bugging them.
