wikianswers is a data base where lots of people like me try and answer your questions
A person who is so bored that he or she writes silly questions on WikiAnswers.
WikiAnswers changes 'I' to 'you' in the questions because WikiAnswers prefers second person over first person questions. It is part of the WikiAnswers Style Rules. It also makes the whole database a lot less hard to manage. Since we merge together questions that are asking the same thing, changing I to you automatically prevents us from having hundreds of thousands of other "I" questions that we would have to merge together.
WikiAnswers is a website where a community of people answer questions. There are hundreds of volunteer supervisors and thousands of contributors that are involved.
Supervisors can merge questions on WikiAnswers. You can notify Supervisors through the Community Forum, which is checked regularly. It will help if you include the URLs for the questions you think should be merged and we'll take care of it.
its not just one person that answers the questions, any member of wikianswers can answer them if they know the answer.
WikiAnswers isn't a person capable of feelings or emotions. In fact, it isn't a person at all. It is contributors that work on the WikiAnswers website that give the answers to asked questions and not someone named WikiAnswers. So the obvious answer to that question would be no, WikiAnswers can not and does not love you.
depends on the person answering the question, wikianswers is not run by a computer, but people who know the answer can just answer questions themselves.
Use of Second Person Form on WikiAnswersWikiAnswers has elected not to use first person form, but rather second person, for several reasons: First, choosing one style form allows for consistency across the board and makes it easier to search and find relevant Q&As. Second, the purpose of having questions asked in the second person is to differentiate WikiAnswers from other Q&A sites where anything goes. Also, by asking questions in the second person, there is no "ownership" of the question or Q&A. This is imperative to WikiAnswers' end goal of collaboratively created content.
Do you think your the first person to do that....
There are over 100 Whitney Houston FAQ on WikiAnswers. This is actually not unusual: when a celebrity dies, or when something out of the ordinary happens in their life, questions about that person increase.
Apparently there is a person doing a school project on Giant Pandas, and asked all the questions on his worksheet into the data base, hoping someone with no life on Wikianswers would give an accurate answer to all of his questions!
No. I am a regular person who loves answering questions. I do not pay a fee for this answer, you do not pay anything. I do not get paid for this answer, you do not. My job at WikiAnswers is to answer questions truthfully for you.
Almost none. WikiAnswers itself does not answer it, the users do, so however brilliant the person sounds it may not be the right answer so be careful what you believe.
Well, these questions are not answered by a single person; they are answered by many different people all over the world. With that being said, it cannot be determined whether the people who answer the questions on WikiAnswers are Christian or not.
Anybody in the world with access to the Internet could be asking questions on WikiAnswers. Click on "Question history" in the blue toolbar on the left. At the very bottom should be the ID or username of the person that asked the question.

Any questions that add no value to WikiAnswers are silly questions to answer, and should be reported to a Supervisor for disposal.Examples of such questions are:Do you believe in cookies?Who is the coolest person on earth?Basically, any nonsense questions such as the examples listed above (and much more) are considered silly questions that shouldn't be answered.
There are two people next to the WikiAnswers logo because it shows that any person (like the two random people next to the logo) can go to WikiAnswers and ask and answer questions.
