Who do you ask questions to?
You type your question and if it is unanswered someone or an expert can answer your question, or if you have a friend on Answers.com.
Anyone can answer a question on Answers.com if they sign up, so you are basically asking anyone.
You can think of this two ways:
1. You can ask the question to the site, to WikiAnswers
2. You can ask the questions to the members and unregistered users of WikiAnswers.
The first option might be easier. Often, question contributors on WikiAnswers expect an immediate answer to their question, and when it does not magically appear, they become frustrated or bored. This occasionally leads to vandalism of the site, which is not a good option.
Asking questions on WikiAnswers often requires patience. It can take time to get a custom answer for the question you ask. It is our desire to provide you with the best and most complete answer possible. To this end, we have hundreds of volunteer supervisors and Special Project Assistants patrolling the sight to clean up bad answers and to erase the signs of vandalism.
The secret is to give your question some time. If you begin to become impatient or frustrated, try searching the sight for different wordings for your question. You might be surprised what you find. If you are still frustrated, contact a supervisor or go to the Community Forum and search active threads there where there may be people who can answer your question, or questions about your question.
The entire Answers community! When you ask a question, anyone all over the world can answer. Some users are designated as Experts - this means that they have experience, education, and/or knowledge in that topic. Other users may answer as well though - even if they're not signed in.
The asking of questions as is the answering is purely voluntary. If you do not want to ask or answer you may just read the posts. If you do not want to just read and not interact then most will not join areas like Answers.com.
No or yes is what you say.
If you have a question, but there is no question to be asked, then something is wrong... either language skills are lacking, so that you can't put the question you have into words in order to ask it, or something is wrong with your ability to ask a question. Maybe a software problem? ... Not sure why you would find yourself in a position where you could say "there is no question to be asked."… Read More
If you don't have a specific question, then it's best not to ask anything at all. Perhaps you can answer questions instead. You can ask "What is it that I should be asking?" Sometimes -- information is based on understanding 'concepts'. Perhaps you could do your best to describe what you are wondering about, with a few sentences, instead of a question. Give us a topic, or subject, or an angle. Some of us will… Read More

After an Anonymous (or non-logged in) user asks a question on WikiAnswers, they are given the opportunity to register so that they can add that question to a Watchlist and be emailed when the question is answered or edited. It is very useful; otherwise you have to keep coming back and checking. Registering is easy - you just need a username, password and email address.
You are asking pretty much anyone. On Answers.com, anyone can ask a question and anyone can answer a question. We all work together to help each other.
Answer Ask a lot of the questions that you would be asking them if you were the interviewer, instead of the interviewee. How long have you worked at this company? Do you like your job? What is your typical day like? What would my typical day be like? Where do you hope to be in five years? Where does this company hope to be in five years? What is the management like at this company… Read More

No. If you have not joined the site as a member and you ask a question, your username is replaced by your computer's IP address.
No. You don't even have to give a credit card number or become a "member". Just ask.
Because Answers notifies you by email if someone posts an answer to your question. if you're unregistered, there is no email address associated with your contributions, so they cannot let you know when a question has been answered !
You have to sign up, (if you don't have an account.) and then ask a question. EASY!
When you ask a question then, sometimes - and only if your question is similar to one or more existing questions which may already have answers - you are asked some further questions after you have just asked a question. This is done first of all to help you, by giving you answers immediately, if any exist. Secondly it helps all the other contributors to WikiAnswers who answer your questions, because they won't have to… Read More
I like to know that people out there are getting answers! Sometimes I need to know something, so I really need an answer! This is so much fun to help!
On the left on any page, look for Quick Links, then My Contributions. Click that. If you are a registered user with log-in, it will show all you asked, answered, etc. If you used an IP, it will be mixed in with other users for that IP address.
Do WikiAnswers questions always ask you something to try to protect questioners identity and privacy?
No. If you are asking about the "code" that must be entered to answer a question without being a logged-in member, that is to protect wikianswers from attacks by spambots. Before it was implemented there were a hundred or more "answers" every day that had to be deleted because they were links to dangerous websites.
Easiest way. Go to the blue sidebar.Click on "my contributions".Filter to questions asked.You will find your question and hopefully the answer to it there.
No, anyone can ask a question, even without signing up. That is the beauty of WikiAnswers!
No, you don't. The downside, though, is that you won't be able to track your question and receive notification when your question is answered.
== == We have lots of answers along with lots of questions. Naturally, we have more questions than answers since they are constantly being asked. This an answer right here to your question, so we must have answers as well. To see the answer, click on the link of any question. If there is an answer, it will show up. If not, it will show up as unanswered.
I do most of both I like to answer though to see if I know what others dont

Of course! Just type it into the box.
Go to your profile - click the 'see all' link at the bottom of the 'recent contributions' box. Once there - use the filter to find 'questions (asked)' - then simply select the relevant question from the list. That will show your question(s) - and any answer that's been given.

If you need an answer as soon as possible, contact the Supervisor of the category of which it is in and ask for assistance.

Some questions are ambiguous. Some people may misread or misunderstand the question. There are also people that just post nonsense and spam.
I asked this for others, not myself, and no, you don't. I asked many questions and answered some(not improved the answer) without an account. So no, you do not. I did not have an account when i asked my first question.But today i made an account.So now i have an account.(so you do not need an account to ask questions!)

A good question is something that you don't understand. Others may also not understand either but too lazy to ask and learn.
To keep track of questions you ask, sign up for a user account and always log in before asking a question. That way your contributions can be found in your list of contributions on your biopage and you'll also receive email notification when the question is answered or changed. If you are looking for a question you didn't ask or answer, try typing in the question again to see if you can find it that… Read More
