The problem is that some ISPs and networks share IP addresses. When you dial-up to an Internet service provider they randomly assign you an IP address from the group of numbers that they own (unless they promise you a stable or permanent IP address). Other customers of the ISP would have used that n…umber before. Something similar happens with corporate networks and proxy servers. All the traffic from a certain company, for example, would go through one central server. If that server has one IP address everyone at the company, school, library, etc. that uses the local network will have the same IP address. For WikiAnswers contributors, the best thing is to sign in as a member before contributing any questions or answers.

The whole purpose of Answers is to be a permanent repository for user generated content. Questions are not removed unless they are inappropriate or abusive. Users are expected to know the guidelines before they add or change content. Besides, if you can delete questions, then so could others. Giving… the ability to delete what you asked can open more avenues for abuse. Vandals could delete many questions, and even good users who feel estranged or disgruntled could resort to deleting questions in retaliation for some perceived slight. Now, if you really do believe you went over the top, the best thing to do would be to seek out a supervisor and let them know what you did. Then they can delete or fix it to be more in line with the rules. Of course, any registered user in good standing should be able to reword questions or edit inappropriate answers. (MORE)
No, featuring is a supervisor only tool. However if you see a goodquestion that you would like featured, feel free to message anyactive supervisor asking them to feature it for you.
