Questions are rarely deleted. Generally, questions are only deleted for these reasons: * They are considered spam or vandalism. * They are completely unanswerable or unintelligible. However, questions might seem to "disappear" for other reasons, including: * If a question was asked before, with a slightly different wording, it may be merged into the other question. * Many questions are edited. The mission of WikiAnswers is to grow simple, universal "FAQ-style" questions and answers. Questions are often changed to improve spelling or grammar, or to make them more concise. For example, this question was asked as "If it is possible to delete a question posted by another person why would someone do that Kinda rude don't ya think They usually do it anonymously coward maybe?" It was simplified. * Many questions are moved. We want questions to be in the most appropriate Topic areas. For example, this question was originally placed in the Miscellaneous Topic but it was moved to the WikiAnswers Topic.

Yes questions can be taken off WikiAnswers. The only reason they would be taken off Answers is if they were nonsense, did not have enough info to answer, were illegal, or inappropriate. You can always flag a question for review if you believe it should be deleted.

Questions asked on WikiAnswers may be merged with other questions asking the same question, or they may be deleted if they violate the guidelines. Answers are not guaranteed and questions may remain unanswered. If they are merged into a catch-all (no value, inappropriate material, etc.), you may ask that they be reinstated by writing to WikiAnswers @ Answers.com(no spaces).

No, The questions under uncategorized are where questions go if someone does not know what categorize to put them in and eventually they will go into the proper categories.

Questions on WikiAnswers can not be deleted by regular contributors. Supervisors can trash questions into a catchall category, but only advanced supervisors can permanently delete questions off the site.

This question has been set up as a merge point for test questions that have been copied and pasted to WikiAnswers.

At the moment there is no way for contributors to remove their own questions. If you want your question deleted, please contact a Supervisor.

Valid unanswered questions will stay on the site forever, so they can be answered.Invalid questions, questions which break the rules or the law are deleted by Supervisors.

I dont think there is a way... my friend had alot of rares and her account was deleted, they probably have a list or something of deleted accounts, if i where you, i would e mail fantage. go to the fantage website then click on help at the top. a screen with a bunch of questions and answers should appear. if you look at the blue bar right above the questions, it will say "FAQ's" in gold with an arrow ontop. right next to that click "contact us" in the first yellow box, it will show bullets. in this case click "general questions" then fill out the form and they will answer your question.

Questions are constantly getting merged, deleted etc. It would be very difficult to determine this. Maybe try to email WikiAnswers @ answers.com and ask them to answer this question.

They will not appear on the activity feed unless they have answers from a nonexpert. I believe that the fact that expert answers are not listed on the activity feed is an oversight. Do not worry, they have not been deleted.

User Avatar

It didn't have very many questions, and it wasn't growing, so we removed it. If we start getting a lot of questions about this, and it is something that the community is participating in, then we would be happy to consider making it again in the future.

No. Valid questions will be answered, but nasty questions and those about illegal sex practices will be deleted and the asker banned from the site.

This is a Catch-all question to be used to "round-up" questions that are copyright infringements (copied and pasted from other sites). All questions merged to this should be reviewed for deletion from WikiAnswers.

User Avatar

Questions that are asked never get deleted, unless it is against the rules of WikiAnswers. The question is permanently logged into the WikiAnswers databased, and never goes away.

Only certain users are able to delete questions. At this time, it is not possible for any user except those chosen few to delete questions completely from the site. Questions are not deleted often, nor are they meant to be. However, we do have a process for bad/inappropriate questions. If you think a question qualifies for deletion, place it in the "catch-all category" or notify a supervisor. If you are a supervisor and think a question needs to be deleted (see catch-all and trashing guidelines), simply trash the question completely. It will then be reviewed and possibly deleted.

It's not that WikiAnswers is offended by certain questions, it's more of the appropriateness of the answer. Some questions are just not appropriate to ask, and/or be answered, so the question is deleted because of innapropriate content.
