Keep the following points below in mind.Some of them may or may not apply to you: The number of answers that you obtain will depend on how popular your question is.If your question isn't interesting or does not have a broad appeal,your responses may be low.Timing also plays a factor.If possible,try to post your questions during peak periods on the site. This may be like on evenings and early night time when more people are home from work etc and on Yahoo.Weekends are also a great time to ask questions. Sometimes there are glitches with the system (Yahoo) that may prevent users from answering questions for certain periods of time.If you post while the site is experiencing problems,it may affect how many people respond to you. Sometimes its just a case of bad luck.It happens to everyone from time to time. Questions asked in the Polls and Surveys category generally obtain a high response rate,but the quality of the answers is often poor.If you are seeking advice or specialized knowledge,ask your question in the correct category. Better to get a few correct and well thought out responses than a flood of poor and inaccurate answers. Also... Use correct grammar,spelling and punctuation. After you have typed up your question and before you hit the "Submit" button, read it over to yourself a couple of times and make sure that it makes sense.If it doesn't make sense to you,it will not make sense to other persons who may want to answer your question. Make your question as short and to the point as you possibly can. Long questions can be a turnoff for some people when they see all that detail and they will just click away to someone else's question without bothering to read and answer yours. Make sure you choose the correct category in which to post your question.This could mean the difference between getting zero or only a few answers,and obtaining a much higher response rate. Choose your contacts wisely.Try to have contacts who are active on the site and who are knowledgeable in different fields.Having a few devoted contacts who are interested in you and in answering your questions will add to the number of responses that you obtain If you aren't satisfied with the responses that you are getting on this site, you may want to check out some other websites that are similar to Yahoo Answers.Y!A is by far the biggest of them: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/que... You will have to do your own research and decide for yourself which sites you may like, but you just may discover some hidden gems. If you ask a question requiring specialized knowledge, you can try to contact some of the Top Contributors in the category in which you asked the question.Email them if they allow email.Inform them that you asked a question and was wondering if they would be so kind as to give you an answer. Post the link to your question in your email so that they can go to it right away without having to search for it.This method has worked for me in the past.Most TC's are very willing to help out other members.In the category in which you asked the question,look to the top right and you will see a small blue link labeled "Top Answerers in Cars & Transportation" for example.Click on the link and see who you would like to email.

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
Uzziel Originally Answered: Should Yahoo answers disabled the report button for all users so only non Bias Yahoo mods can report the questions and answers?
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.
Uzziel Originally Answered: Should Yahoo answers disabled the report button for all users so only non Bias Yahoo mods can report the questions and answers?
NO! Aside from taking things way too seriously, and the fact that there isn't enough staff to do what you suggest, we all agreed to abide by the rules when we signed up to use this site. It doesn't matter how minor the violations are... if it's a violation, we shouldn't be upset or surprised if it was reported. Your question was definitely a violation so you have no reason to complain. You just have to learn the rules and abide by them. It doesn't matter if you don't agree with any of them. I don't know what you mean by "weed out trusted members". Do you even know what having a high trust rating means? It means that user ALWAYS reports accurately. That's the ONLY way they become that trusted member. That said, there's nothing to weed out! Most reports are not false. And when someone does report something that turns out not to be a violation, it's usually because they thought something was a violation... not because they just felt like reporting someone. When a question or answer is reported and deleted, it's usually because it was reported by 2 or more people. There's no way of knowing if it was one report by someone with a high trust rating. But if it was, again... that person reports accurately.

Ask a legitimate question and don't type in all caps or capitalize things that don't need to be capitalized. And use the right forms of your and you're. Basically, don't look like a complete idiot and people will be more likely to answer your question.
