What is inappropriate behavior on WikiAnswers?
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 als…o click on the 'Report abuse' link (in red) above the question
1.Screaming. 2.Cursing. 3.Fighting
Up at the top of the screen underneath the search box, there is a button that says "report abuse." If you click on that it will report the answer.
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.
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.
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.
Well, if it is a rude question you can simpley go to the little button on the top right hand screen. Its called [Improve]. You can change the question etc. Click on the link… "Edit Alternates" on the left hand side of the browser pane. This will show up all available alternate wordings for a question. You can select the incorrect question that has been merged with the current question and then click Split. This will separate the selected question as a separate question and remove it from the list of alternates from the current question. Note: If you are not sure about what you are merging/splitting pls take the help of a senior member of the community or that category supervisor before doing so.
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' se…ction. 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.
It depends on where you are and whom you are with. picking your nose in public is ALWAYS inappropriate speaking quietly is almost always appropriate
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?"
Showing your genitals to people who do not want to see them. It is very innappropriate behavior. As is getting on tables and yelling, or yelling in general. You should not do …these things unless you know your company personally and are well aquanted with them. Don't fart too.
