What would you like to do?
That comes up all the time. People compose a question saying "Which of the following is not a cause of WW I?" (for example) yet they haven't listed anything following that question, and we who answer questions have no idea what they are talking about. Or the question is completely incoherent. "You are marble, in unexpected prehensile." It doesn't mean anything, therefore it can't be answered.

Didwho die? And we can't answer many car, coin, time zone, or otherquestions without specific information. .

What kinds of questions can not be answered on WikiAnswers because they do not have enough information?
One-word questions like "anime", "books", and "paintings" are veryhard to answer without any extra information in the discussion ofthe questions. Some other hard ones are "com…puter help", "downloadsites", and "video game cheats". Most of these sort of questionsneed to be discussed and then answered. Make a question specific so the answerer doesn't have to dig forinformation. They have a choice to answer it or not, and you want them to answer it, so make it easy for them!
How can you know if your question is funny enough to become one of Wikianswers most amusing Questions?
If the answer is funny too.
There are many, many, many people that answer questions on WikiAnswers. The only reason why it seems that not very many people are answering questions is because there are que…stions being submitted almost every 5 seconds.
Unfortunately, some do. Though it should be deleted if it is seen by another user.
Questions that have ambiguous meaning or incorrectly structured in syntax & semantic content with no references to the context of the questions are not clear enough to be answ…ered on WikiAnswers.
What a stupid question u iDiOt !- unknown person unknown girl- yeah, you think you can ask smart questions, i bet your stupider then someone who dont have a brain you churke…y so back off you know it all.
People generally do not think that others would not know what they are talking about if they use pronouns like you, them, it, etc. or do not provide all the information necess…ary for another to answer the question. They do not stop to think that in order to communicate their question well, they have to use words that allow others to understand what they are asking and be specific. For example: Asking "When did they invade?" does not give enough information and is not clear about who is being asked about. On the other hand, asking "When did Germany invade Poland at the time of World War 2?" is completely clear about what is being asked. Asking "Should you leave him?" is also too vague. A better wording is "Should you leave you boyhttp://wiki.answers.com/How_many_Category_Supervisors_are_therefriend?" because it leaves no doubt about who is being asked about; however, it does not state what the boyfriend did or a reason why you would be thinking about leaving him. That information needs to be included in order for the question to be answered in a meaningful way. The best wording might be "Should you leave your boyfriend if he cheated on you?" or "Should you leave your boyfriend if you no longer love him?"
For a question to have enough information to be answered, the asker can't just assume someone knows what they mean. Be very specific. If you are asking about a specific person…, place, or thing, use the name, and not the pronoun. X = What books did she write? √ = What books did JK Rowling write? When the word "she" was used, no one knew who the asker was talking about. X = How much money does he make a year? √ = How much money does Donald Trump make a year? Same thing here. No one could just guess at who "he" is. X=How do you open the hood? √ = How do you open the hood on a 2007 Ford Ranger? Every car is different. People need to know which type you are talking about. X = What is it all about? √ = What is the play Potted Potter about? Again, no one would know what "it" is.
Click discuss question. Then add any extra text into the discussion area.
Questions such as "In the following diagram - which is the larger area" or "How long does it take to get from New York to San Francisco" - In the first question - it's obvious… that the asker is wanting a homework question answered - but browser limitations mean they can't actually show us the diagram. In the second example - the asker hasn't told us what method of transport they're travelling by.
Yes, WikiAnswers can be useful. It helped me learn how to replace the door handle on my car. It has helped me learn other things as well. I wouldn't say that it is always usef…ul... there is a lot that needs to be cleaned up on the site, and I try to help clean up when I come across something that is wrong or has been vandalized... but it definitely *can* be useful.
You have to remember - this is not a 'live' site (like a chatroom) - it's a forum - where people post questions, and need to wait for someone to answer them ! If you nee…d an 'instant' answer - you're better off logging into a chatroom !
Flagging a question that does not have enough information is easy. All you have to do is report the question.
