No. At this point in time the only way to join WikiAnswers is by using a Facebook account.
It depends on your point of view. Everyone has different views, so the coolest thing about WikiAnswers is your favorite subject.
You already have ! Any question you ask is 'public' - for anyone to answer.... That's the whole point of forums (not just WikiAnswers).
If you recommend a user on WikiAnswers, it means that you have given them a trust point. See 'related links' for more information.
While WikiAnswers is a good source of information, it does not take the place of books. WikiAnswers gives answers to specific questions but it does not give you a story or cover such broad subjects that books can.
When you register on WikiAnswers you submit your email. When you receive a trust point, you also receive an email stating that you have received a trust point. The username or IP address who gave you the trust point will not be included however. You can also look on your profile page and see the trust point count.
Yes, you get one contribution point per answer.
The Trust Point system allows contributors to vote for a WikiAnswers member whose contributions you think are worthwhile and legitimate, and clean. Please see the related links for more information on trust points.
You're helping people. That's the whole point to WikiAnswers.com
