Follow the "question-and-answer format"

Some Q&A guidelines to keep in mind on Yahoo Answers.

  • It's possible that a question could be considered a "rant," even if it's formatted correctly.

  For example: Avoid posting questions that are more about declaring your opinions than seeking knowledge.

  • When posting jokes or riddles, be sure to format them correctly. A story joke that ends in a punchline isn't a question.

  For example: Jokes or riddles that include the punchline are OK if there's a knowledge-seeking purpose to them, i.e. "Would this be a good joke to tell coworkers?"
