What would you like to do?
Every question and answer at WikiAnswers is contributed to by regular visitors like you. It's all co-operative. We depend on you to ask questions, and we also depend on you to… help answer other people's questions. Most questions will get a reply from a nice person, supervisor, expert, or regular user who can at least point you in the right direction, if not give you a definitive answer. All WikiAnswers questions are asked and answered by visitors just like you. It is highly unlikely that all the questions here will ever be answered right away since: Thousands of new questions are asked every day. Some questions are virtually unanswerable. Yes. Some questions on WikiAnswers get answered. This one just did. A tip for getting your question answered is to make sure that it is in the correct category, and the question is grammatically correct. Of the four questions (including this one) you posted - two were answered fairly quickly. The question 'What is permanetly froaen subsoil called' - contained two spelling errors which you should have corrected before you submitted it. Your final question (this one) has obviously now been answered ! You must remember this is not a live website - it's a forum. You need to be patient to wait for someone to log-on and actually read your question before they can answer it !
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.
No. WikiAnswers is a community-based Q&A website. They look to their users to ask and answer questions.
WikiAnswers cannot answer many types of questions. Here are some questions that cannot be answered, and will be dropped from the site: Chatting - questions like "What are you… doing?" and "What is the homework?" cannot be answered because this is not a chat room.Vague Questions - questions that are too vague, like "What is the meaning of life?" or "Why?" cannot be answered.Incomplete questions - sentence fragments, or partial questions, cannot be understood enough to be answered.
There is no bad thing about answering a question on WikiAnswers, there are only good things and benefits. Like, for the user that asked the question, now they know the answer …that they were longing for. And, you, you just shared your knowledge, doesn't that feel good?
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.
