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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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
An update was rolled out to clean up the chinese spam,there is still some about but not as much as before.Yahoo answers is community moderated,so anyone can become a trusted reporter.
Many thanks Tidus,
The Chinese spam continues unabated
I have reported tens of thousands of questions & less than 5% are / were removed
Plese help me clean out whatever little I can
This is my profile if it helps,
It did slow over the weekend, seems to be better today.
