Why does WikiAnswers change 'I' to 'you' in the questions?
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.

Do you love me WikiAnswers?
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.

Why is first person not used when asking questions on WikiAnswers?
Use of Second Person Form on WikiAnswers WikiAnswers 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.
