Why does WikiAnswers not give answers to questions?

Wiki doesn't answer questions.. We do; based on research and knowledge. There could be many reasons why your question did not get answered, but on average; Wiki gets 1 question asked for every second of every day of the year... so if no one spots your question, it doesn't get answered. Simple as really.
Things that will improve your chances of answers:
  • putting your question in the right category so that people who can answer are more likely to see.
  • Not asking homework questions, the rules are there for a reason.
  • Spelling your question correctly.
  • Making sure your question is only about one thing, and couldn't be taken in another way.
