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 ?

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?

I personally find it outrageous! I mean where was yahoo answers when I was in school?!?! heck i see so many homework answers being posted and all these people answering....what do these people gain? they don't get paid a dime, these kids aren't going to learn much except getting someone else to do their work.......

If the kid is trying hard and stuck on a problem or needs advise fine, but entire questions and problems are being fully posted.......

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.

As a person who answers questions at Yahoo! Answers Photography what is your goal? What do you hope to achieve
Asked By Mere Mortal,Last Answer By Picture Taker At 2009.12,1 Answers

Anymore, I'm just killing time. I used to think that I was helping people who wanted to learn, but I think that represents only about 5% of the people who come by here these days. Maybe it will be better come September.

When you teach, you learn. Often I would know enough to know WHERE or HOW to find the information the person was seeking, but not enough to give an authoritative answer. It was educational for me to look up the answer for them.

I went through a spell where I wouldn't even answer a question if I couldn't learn something from the process.

Now, I come here just to see what my friends are up to.

My final 2 questions at Yahoo Answers.?
Asked By Grand Theft Auto,Last Answer By Amy B® At 2011.03,1 Answers

The time has come for me to move on. About 4 weeks ago I was on the verge of being laid-off from my only job and lose everything that I had worked for. Instead 2 things have happened to me in the past month that has limited my time at Y/A:

1. I got a second job.
2. I got promoted instead of being cut from my first job( I took over a position from someone who was canned ).

I am very fortunate now for 2 jobs in an economy where others are being laid-off. Time to show how appreciative I am of having 2 jobs by working lots of hours(60-80+ depending on volume) and in addition going to school part-time so I can get into pharmacy school.

My thanks to all of my friends here at the Y/A hockey section for not only making my experience here at Y/A one that I'll always remember but also leave here more knowledgeable about the game of hockey then when I first came in.

I'll never forget any of you and I wish all for you the best of luck in your own lives.

My final 2 questions for you:

1. Who are 5 players from each conference would you like to see in the All Star Game in Montreal this season?
2. Coke or Pepsi?

A question which may create a dilemma for you just in trying to answer it. Yahoo Answers VIOLATIONS issue...?
Asked By Been there: done that - I thin,Last Answer By Unknown.... At 2010.01,1 Answers

I am 'out here,' trying to provide help for reptile care, or even misplaced dog/cat/gerbils Q's, as most of you are.

My Q is - do we not have a moral responsibility to react adversely to animal abuse issues, and those Q's which are contructed to elicit a reply against implied issues of animal abuse?

And if the answer is yes - why do we get violations from yahoo answers, when we respond for the safety and health of the animal? I have seen that it's okay to call someone cruel, but not to call them inhumane.

Is this due solely to the Q'er issing the complaint? Or is it a voted thing?

ARE we supposed to blindly not comment to the poster, and voice our concerns?

The flip of this is reporting the question, which also leads to issues of suspended Yahoo! privileges such as mail and chat.

Does anyone else feel as if they are "darned if they do, and darned if they don't?"

Or is it just me?

I spent points to pose this query, and I'd truly appreciate your honest responses.

Trust me - this is one question which won't be reported by the poster, regardless of response.

TY for your time, and thoughts.

Is 'Yahoo Answers' doing people's homework for them?
Asked By The Informer,Last Answer By Pirate Girls Kick Butt! At 2011.03,1 Answers

It appears to me that 'Yahoo Answers' is merely doing people's homework for them. Many of the questions in here are obvious homework questions and not something you run across on a daily basis. I know that the internet is the information highway but I also feel that parents and teachers should start putting some type of restriction on how they use the internet to do their homework. What are some suggestions you have that might help in this delima? Or do you think it's hopeless and that we are doomed into have future leaders, workers and teachers of the world who have become dependant on having others do thier work for them or just simply cheat their way into the Legal and Medical professions while inevitably corrupting our future?
