Yahoo Answers

I have not been able to read 90% of Yahoo Answers for quite a while.  There is no filter function to filter out questions in other languages - in the current case I guess Chinese - so especially the travel section is useless.

Will Yahoo address the problem in any way?  Or will Answers just die a slow ugly death?  I used to rather enjoy reading the questions and getting vacation ideas.

 

Thanks!

The site is currently being spammed by the chinese posts and the other problem is community moderation is not working too well.But it's being looked into and hopefully action taken soon.

Re: Yahoo Answers

For starters could you put in filters just fot the Chinese script

 

Could you consider granting 'trusted users' / 'power users' status to people who have really slogged it out - obviously trusted users

That way a whole lot of the junk can be got rid of

Practically nothing getting deleted - for the past 6 hours or so

A turn for the worse - Report not working, for the Chinese spam
