Is it proper to answer a question by asking another question?

No, it's not. We aim to grow simple questions and answers -- Q&A's that can become part of FAQs. We don't want WikiAnswers to be just another Web discussion forum. From experience we've found that allowing follow-up questions turns question pages into discussion threads. Instead of asking a follow-up question, ask a new question. I don't know, is it? Seriously though this can be proper in some situations such as a if a teacher uses this method to help a student derive their own answer and in turn grasp a greater understanding, in most cases though, such as on this site, it is not.

Why do people ask questions and answer their own questions?

Answer . Too often people will answer the question they just asked to promote or support their own point of view. They may also want to show off a bit. Either way, if the question is phrased well and the answer supplied is "correct" as posted, then WikiAnswers is better for it. Anyone who shows up and asks that question and finds it already asked and answered has benefited from this informational resource. . A good reason, though, for doing this is to supply information in a Q&A style. If you know something, and think it may be a question people want to know about, you can ask a question and supply the initial answer. Just remember that WikiAnswers is a wiki, which means your answer can and will be "edited mercilessly" by the Community at large.. I personally think that it is really weird!

Why after you have asked a question are you sometimes asked to answer more questions?

When you ask a question then, sometimes - and only if your question is similar to one or more existing questions which may already have answers - you are asked some further questions after you have just asked a question. This is done first of all to help you, by giving you answers immediately, if any exist. Secondly it helps all the other contributors to WikiAnswers who answer your questions, because they won't have to answer similar questions over and over again. The questions displayed will probably contain some or many of the same words as are in the question you asked. Or, during the 'ask a question' process, other users have already said that your question is the same as an existing question and have allowed the system to make that question (meaning your question) an alternate wording to the existing one. Remember you don't have to sign-up or pay anything to ask a question and receive an answer on WikiAnswers! If your question is not immediately shown as a new question you may see another page headed: Step 1: Is one of these your question? followed by one or more other questions which may look similar to the one you have just asked. These are some existing questions which other people have asked. Each question will be followed by a NO/YES query like this: NO , but show me this one | YES , this is my question If you are sure that one of these is the same as your new question then just press the YES button. If it is not the same as your new question you can press the NO button to see that other one anyway, which will open in a new window. When you have finished viewing that question just close its window and you will be returned to the page where you can submit your own new question. Then, if none of those existing questions is exactly like what you asked about, just scroll down the page until you reach the section headed: Step 2: Review question wording and submit That heading is followed by some notes to help you: Required format: (1) In the form of a question, (2) one question at a time, (3) no punctuation, (4) no personal details or dates. See examples. Then there is a tick box described like this: Optional: Watch this question to be alerted when it is answered or edited You can tick that box to request emails to be sent to you if someone answers or edits your question. Then, if you have not already signed-in to WikiAnswers as a registered user, you will be asked to register and/or log in so that emails can be sent to you about your question. We always recommend you to check your question's spelling , and what it asks , as carefully as possible because this will help you to get the attention of someone who may know the answer! When you are ready, then simply click the Submit Question button and wait to see if you get an answer!

What are the possible questions that you will ask after an interview when asked if you have any questions?

Many people learn everything they need from the interview and have no further questions. If you have anything extra you would like to know about the company, the job, the working conditions, or the salary, then this is the time for you to ask them. You should try not to ask a question that has already been answered, however, as that makes them think you have not paid any attention. If you cannot think of a question, simply smile and say "No," then thank them for the interview.. I agree with the previous post and would like to add a recommendation... write a list of questions ahead of time that you'd like answered about the job, and if they aren't answered during the interview, you should definitely ask them with ease. Inquiring about when a decision to fill the position will be made is an example.

What do you ask when you don't have a question to ask?

If you don't have a specific question, then it's best not to ask anything at all. Perhaps you can answer questions instead. You can ask "What is it that I should be asking?". Sometimes -- information is based on understanding 'concepts'. Perhaps you could do your best to describe what you are wondering about, with a few sentences, instead of a question. Give us a topic, or subject, or an angle. Some of us will know how to turn it into a question: -- and then into an 'answerable' question. That's why they have the 'Improve' beside the question; so that the question can be refined. Therefore, since a question mark is required; you might put your topic of wonderment something like this: What should I know about . . . . (then your topic)? 'Anything you have ever wondered about, has already been wondered about by someone else.' And most of those topics have been addressed somewhere on the World Wide Web..

Why do you not answer the question ask of you?

There might be several reasons, and suspicions here might just aseasily be incorrect as correct. A question is often too general,and without enough context to answer; often when just one moreimportant piece of information would make an answer possible. Ananswer may not be known to your question; or, the one who mightknow has not seen your question, yet. The answer might be toosensitive, for whatever reason--the question too inflammatory,intentionally or not. Or the question might be self-absorbed,applying only to you, and no objective answer is possible. You might have already gotten the answer--possibly more thanonce--and just refuse to accept it...great things might come fromthis. Or, you might just be 'off your meds,' so to speak,codependently appealing to an analog of humanity with littlelikelihood of getting your question answered, your needsmet--although this is quickly evolving. You are assuming a "you"here, when this is not really true. You might seek a more specific forum, which is available from thesearch bar, for esoteric questions whose answers are moresubjective by nature.
