Question: Let's say if I wanted to write a journal entry of how I felt and ask a question about what everyone thinks of my journal and respond to it, can I use Yahoo! answers for that and write about something on here?

No you cannot. You can't use this site as your personal blog. There are plenty of OTHER sites you could use, but I can promise that if you try it here, you'd be reported for it. If you have a question, ASK it. If you have an answer, GIVE it. Besides, you REALLY don't want to do your emotional spewing in front of THIS crowd!

Y staff do not moderate YA, WE do - we are all Community Moderators and this is the hundredth time explaining this thousands of violations pouring in every day - there are 200 million of us and only a handful of Y employees - just think about that for a minute... and try to figure out how fast Yahoo would have to close down YA due to it being overrun by spam and trolls, not to mention porn and extremely explicit and vulgar sexual content trusted members EARNED that trust and the ability to delete what they report by ACCURATELY reporting thousands of violations with almost none being overturned on appeal those who report poorly quickly lose their status at trusted members why do you think that a Q is immune from being reported once it has a BA? - there is no statute of limitations on violations - ones from eight years ago are reportable and should be reported as no one wants to do a search and find an old post with porn or racism in it! ==================== this is why we need to see the WHOLE post: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:vuuwL80ToL0J:https://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index%3Fqid%3D20140520043732AA6jhry+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca "And also Who do you think the intended audience is? What are three things the writer does to reach that audience? What appears to be the writers purpose? And lastly do you think the writer achieves that purpose? Why? Best answer and ten points to whoever can all answer the questions I stated in this question :-)" this is clearly a solicitation for homework, given the formality of the long list of questions you asked under the main header - your one answer showing in the cache is a violation but that person knows you are soliciting homework then you defiantly posted it again but left out the list of questions, but turned it into a rant violation by lashing out at the douchebag who reported it well, guess what, that douchebag is no douchebag but a seasoned reporter who knew this was a violation and lo and behold, you lost your appeal 145 appeals on 145 violations or 145 appeals on this one? either way, that should tell you you need to figure out what you're doing in this site

No, I disagree, there is no way Yahoo could afford to hire sufficient moderators to check the thousands of questions and answers posted daily on this site that is why there is community moderation which includes all of us. Usually 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.Possibly I'm misunderstanding but if your question has been reported 145 times and your appeals were all unsuccessful you should take a serious look at the community guidelines.

No. That would probably be considered chating. It would certainly be a misuse of the site. This site is to be used for gaining knowledge through asking questions and giving answers. It is not for personal use such as writing journals.

It;s a question and answer site. That is a violation of the TOS & I would report you if I saw it. It would be removed instantly.

Keely Originally Answered: How do you respond to someone when they write a response to my question on yahoo answers?
How to reply to answers. There are 3 ways you can do so. 1. Wait 4 hours after posting the question ( if you don’t have an answer within 4 hours, go back to the question later), then go back to the question by mousing over My Activity, then click My Q&A. Click Questions. Choose the question you want. Read each answer carefully. You can only choose 1 best answer. Click Choose as Best Answer under the answer you want to choose. Then choose the rating 1-5 with 5 being the best. Then write how you think of the question. Now you have got 3 points for choosing best answer. 2. Add details by clicking Edit ( pencil icon) in the toolbar beneath the question and click Add Details. Make sure what you put isn’t reported for chatting. 3. Go to the users profile by clicking their user name. If they allow email, email them. Make sure you have email enabled so they can reply.
