Where Can I Ask The Type Of Questions That Keep Being Reported And Deleted On Yahoo Answers

Why do my questions keep getting reported?

There are several reasons Qs are removed.

1. It is a violation of the rules - you will get an e-mail when that happens. If you want to know the reason for the violation, post "Why was this question (answer) a violation?" and add the original e-mail you got so the users can see the exact context. The experienced users here will explain it to you. There is no statute of limitations on breaking the YA rules.

2. There were zero answers when the time expired - no e-mail sent.

3. The BA was reported as a violation - no e-mail sent.

4. During voting, "No Best Answer" was chosen as the best answer - no e-mail sent.

Look in your e-mail, including the spam folder, for a violation e-mail. If not there, check your activity tab in your profile. If nothing about a violation there, then the Q was removed for one of the other reasons.

My questions keep getting deleted/reported?

in the wii section. only in the wii section. i deleted all of my contacts and blocked all my fans. they still got deleted...but only in the wii section. nobody has my password otherwise they would have done other things other than just deleted my wii section questions and on the email YA sent me it said it was reported. Also the questions dont violate any guidelines. they were simply questions regarding if there is a game anyone wanted to recommend so that i could buy it. Is someone just looking at the wii section searching for my screenname and reporting me? i set everything to private. how does it get reported and deleted? there must be more than one! HELP!!

Why do my questions keep getting reported?

I never said that i needed validation. I am not the least bit conceited. I just really liked that picture!! LOL...Beach Babe- We should rebel! LOL
And it was posted in the beauty and makeup. In my question, i asked about what people thought about the actual picture...Maybe there was something different people thought i should do. Perhaps people should think about others feelings and actual read the whole question before reading......

Sorry, i cant remember your name but to the one who said to put my profile on private:
I have one contact, my best friend. I know for a fact that she didnt report me as shes not the type to say that she didnt and do it anyways. If i make my profile private, will she be deleted off as well?

Clearly, you have upset a Yahoo! god and they are firing you from Yahoo! Answers.I used to work for Yahoo! Answers a decade ago and I used to spend a lot of time asnwering a lot of questions and the company was extremely happy with my work.In fact, they send me a Yahoo! Answers jacket to my home.I still have it.A few years later I was one of the most popular writers on Yahoo! Answers and the founder and CEO of Yahoo! at the time David Filo himself send me a letter with his signature and everything congratulating me for my hard work.I still have this letter.A decade ago, a letter signed by a billionaire was a huge deal for me.Now, I get job offers from billionaires, almost each month and I almost always decline them.I still want to work for Elon Musk, Adam D’Angelo, Max Levchin, Peter Thiel, Luke Nosek and Ken Howery, thought.One day, all of a sudden my Yahoo! Answers account was blocked for unknown reasons.I tried to open a new account and this worked for a little while but eventually my account was blocked again.I tried to open a new account and this worked again for a little while but eventually my account was blocked again.After that, I simply stopped trying and evolved into something else.I was extremely dissapointed by all this and I could not fully understand why they were blocking my accounts.Obviously I was younger and dumber a decade ago.It turns out a billionaire got upset about some of my answers and he simply bribed Yahoo! and they fired me.I was bringing a lot of eyesballs to Yahoo! Answers a decade ago.I was answering questions for them for free, you know.Maybe Yahoo! would still be profitable today if they hired me as a regular employee back then.We will never know.It appears that you are in exactly the same situation I was a decade ago.Just forget about Yahoo! Answers and focus exclusively on Quora.They are losing money for a reason, you know.I suspect they regret firing me from Yahoo! Answers a decade ago.Ironically, I am currently one of the MOST VIEWED WRITERS on the Yahoo! (Company) category right now here on Quora.Welcome to Quora.I think you will enjoy this chapter in your life.

If my question about gun violence is deleted, why is okay it to ask questions about banging your mom and sister?

It's not a matter of one being o.k. and the other not o.k. It comes down to reporting violations.and the number of abuse reports on a post. The number of abuse reports before deletion depends on the "trust level" of the reporters. Usually all it takes is 2 or 3 reports by "trusted" members although sometimes more and in rare occasions only one to report a post and the bots remove it. A new member would have a low "trust or reliability level" if a member reports often and accurately their "trust level" increases.If a member reports posts which are not violations their "trust level" drops.in the case of your post there were sufficient reports to delete it. others which should be reported didn't receive enough reports. When you post on controversial subjects the possibility of being reported increases.

What's an answer that can get reported/deleted? Answer this question with an example?

Mine was that I could not answer an Old Testament question, so I got an account violation for it. It is sent to my inbox:

So you have to be on your toes and be careful that you might not lose your account. It happened to me after 2 strikes, I got suspended, and they didn't let me back in with that address.

They're very sharp, too. They have the thumbs up and report abuse button. So unfortunately I can't be myself... Hope this will suffice!

Why do my questions keep getting deleted?

I ask ordinary things, and get good answers, not to mention help people understand things better.. Yet, my questions keep getting deleted, for no reason whatsoever. I even had one earlier that got deleted right after someone had been voted as Best Answer. The questions don't break any guidelines or anything, but keep getting deleted anyway! Why?!

Why do my questions keep getting deleted?

I took the liberty of reviewing your profile on pulse, where your questions and answers can be read . . .

You had a question . . how often do you straighten your hair?
Then you followed up with a paragraph about you and your hair care methods . .
then you said . . so . . how often do you straighten your hair?

You may not realize it but that was chat . . because you were only using the board to have conversations with others . . You weren't trying to gain any knowledge

Had you asked your initial question and then followed up with explaing what you do, and were wondering if someone had some suggestions on this or a better way. . . then, you'd have a valid question.

What your question amounted to was simply a passing the time of day with no purpose other than to visit . .
similar to: I have a skateboard . . .Who Likes Skateboarding?
or: What did you do this summer . . I went to the beach?

Even if all you want to do is visit and have a nice time . . if you just take a moment to formulate your question into one where you need a little help or advice . . you will get a pass from the folks seeking to report your posts
