Not to toot my own horn but I am an expert within my niches. I answered questions thoughtfully and comprehensively, providing value that outside the digital world I would charge a good consultation fee for.
Out of the first 5 answers I submitted, 4 were voted the best and I was awarded the useless 10 points or whatever Yahoo awards you.
Then comes the email notification from Yahoo that the "community" has disqualified my answers and will erase the original posts and penalize me points.
My only guess why is that I included in the resource box my websites urls. They are authority sites on these topics and I was sincerley attempting to provide more value to the questioner. The sites are monitized and my guess is that I was preceived as spamming.
I have since challenged these "community" disqualifications and have been waiting for a reply from Yahoo for two weeks now.
My question to the Warrior Forum community is what has your experience been with Yahoo Answers? I like the fact that it covers forum topics all in one place but I am baffled by the "community" disqualifications. And yes I did read their TOS and am still at a loss.
