Best Answer

Essentially, here's how WikiAnswers works: # Someone asks a question. # Someone answers the question. # Over time, other contributors improve the wording of the question, make it easier to find, develop the answer, etc. # When someone else asks the same question, the answer is there. It should be noted that WikiAnswers is not a search engine like Google, nor a multiple-answer site like, so questions must be questions (not statements or keywords).
