Why do people ask questions, get some amazing answers, and then not bother to pick best answer.?
Asked By katesmate,Last Answer By nealo d At 2011.03,1 Answers

They just let it go to a vote. I think its a bit ungrateful really people take the time to answer, yet the asker just cant be bothered to pick and award 10 points.

Do people Answer questions on Yahoo Answers..........?
Asked By Frankly Speaking,Last Answer By Professor Kool At 2010.10,1 Answers

...more for the purpose of sharing their observations and knowledge with people who might be helped by them, or for the purpose of self aggrandizing themselves ?

I see a great deal of the later and some of the former, but which do you think is more prevalent here?

Recently someone posted a "question" of whether they should or shouldn't be proud of reaching 100 "best answers." Obviously this was a thinly veiled attempt to embroider their own efforts with the praise and allocades of others.
Is yahoo answers more a platform where narcissists can momentarily satiate their hungry egos through self-golification and acclaim from others,or a place where individuals can aid people in gaining insights and information to solve their own quandaries ?

Could this get 50 answers? I will pick a random best answer.?

Is it fair to continually pick the same person for best answer, even if there are better answers?

Why do people hide their questions and answers?
Asked By john h,Last Answer By Bohemian_Garnet_Permaculturali At 2010.08,1 Answers

And maybe the more important question is Why does Answers allow them to hide them.
It seems to me if a person is asking honest questions and giving honest, helpful answers they would not want to hide them. I get a lot of useful information looking back at someones answers when I see that they give some good advice on a question. When I see Q&A's hidden, I start to doubting anything they say. Yahoo Answers allowing people to hide their Q&A's seems to go against everything that they stand for, which is to provide people with a forum to get good honest helpful answers. I realize that there are some people on here for other reasons. Providing a hiding place for them seems to encourage these people. If I am missing the point here, someone clue me in.
I am asking this in Agriculture because these are my people and the one's I'm interested in hearing from.

I am doing a Survey to see how many people are on Answers at this time, So can everyone please answer ??

Why do people ask questions on Y! answers that would take five seconds to look up online?
Asked By pretzeldent,Last Answer By James F At 2009.12,1 Answers

I mean, by the time you ask a question, wait for responses, dig through the idiotic 'i don't knows' and trolls insulting you, not to mention the blatantly wrong answers - you could've just had your answer by searching for it.

Why do people give answers to what are obviously homework questions?
Asked By Jethro,Last Answer By Woodeee At 2009.12,1 Answers

Why just GIVE them the answer? How does that help them learn? I understand HELPING a student by guiding them, pointing them in the right direction so they can research their question and find the answer themself.

C'mon people, don't just do their homework for them!

I want answers from people who have used water4gas on their cars ONLY. If you haven't don't answer.?
Asked By Jacqueline L,Last Answer By TC At 2009.12,1 Answers

Did it work? How well? Is it worth your money and time? I have a V8 SUV and would like to try this out, but reviews are mixed. I see bad reviews from people who haven't even tried it. And some good from those who have. Like I said, DON'T even answer this question if you have not personally tried it. I don't want your "opinions" based on something you don't know about - only think you know. So please, ONLY people who have tried this!!

Why do you participate in Yahoo Answers?Please people from many countries answer?
Asked By cpinatsi,Last Answer By Jezebel At 2011.03,1 Answers

If you take a look deep inside you, beyond the surface, what is the need that makes you participate here? I mean Ok, we all want to see what people around the world think and exchange opinions etc., but that is too theoretic, what is your own individual reason?

a. You want to spread you personal opinion? I often catch myself to have found a way to express my views on several things, without anyone interrupting me! Do you feel free to expess yourself here, is that a motive?
b. You want to help people who need an answer and have similar problems with you? (e.g. that is why I answer at the pets section).
c. You want to promote your country's views? You think you are doing a national task? And in this case, do you not answer questions in other sections? If you do, why do you answer those?
d. Do you have a part of you who is lonely and needs communication? Are you bored or lacking people you can talk to at home?
e. Other? What?

Why do people answer questions that they know nothing about??
Asked By Rollin_West,Last Answer By Got Wild, Staring Eyes At 2010.01,1 Answers

I work on commercial air conditioners for a living. I mostly answer questions on here about air conditioners. I have noticed that so many other people answer these questions too. These are people who know nothing about an air conditioning system and often answer the question by telling the person to call a qualified technician. Obviously the people are on here asking a question in hopes to avoid the hassle and $$$ involved with calling a service company. It's either that or some totally off the wall bull_**** answer that makes no sense at all. Why do people waste all of our time answering questions when they have no clue what they are talking about??
