I am now a Level 2 Yahoo! Answers fiend with a 58% Best Answers rating. Booyah.
Three more best answers for “Scrapbook suppliers in Plymouth, UK?” “How do I make a bibliography with websites?” and “How do I get rid of the smell of old, rotten food?”
Best answer on “Where can I do some community service other than the library?”
I’m not sure how this one happened, but apparently one of my answers has been deleted on a still open question. Again, there was nothing offensive or illegal in either the question or answer - this one was “Public holidays in May 2012?” and I answered with Australian and international holidays (because the user is from Australia). Can someone tell me why my answer was deleted?? This is all very bizarre. Anyways, I was able to save this one before something went wrong. So you can compare the version with my answer to the link in this post if you’d like. The other two answers, which each list one holiday, are still there. Hm.
So I’m a little curious about recent activity on some of the questions I answered. Two more have been deleted: “How would I flip this picture in Photoshop?” and “How to tag posts on tumblr?” I’m not really sure why this has happened - neither violated any kind of Yahoo! Answers rules. Do users make a habit of deleting questions instead of picking a best answer? It irritates me a bit, because I put time and effort into answering each of the three questions that have been deleted. None of them have had really inflammatory responses either, as they were all pretty basic questions. Anyways, I must persevere!
Best answer for my first question - “What is the scientific method?”
How to do 3 simple embroidery stitches? -
I’m a big embroidery nerd, so I was excited to answer this question. I know how important it is to have good written instructions paired with clear, bright images in a tutorial. I have a few of these sites bookmarked on my browser for (personal) ready reference, so I picked out a few that show very basic stitches, and a few more that show some really fun and interesting work.
How to get rid of smell of old, rotten food? -
This question was pretty gross, I have to say. Definitely unpleasant images. I’m not sure how this user is going to get the smell off of his shelf - especially if it’s wood. In terms of the carpet, I was a little better off. I worked for a family as a cleaning lady and babysitter for the better part of my senior year in undergrad, and because of that I am a convert to the Church of Baking Soda and Vinegar. I checked online to make sure these supplies would work well on carpet, and indeed they do. Hopefully they will for this user as well!
