Revamped Question Page

Today we’ve made some changes to simplify the question page and make it easier for everyone to ask questions and follow questions that interest you.

Simplified Asking

We’ve done a bit of cleaning up on the question page. The toolbar below the question has been removed and replaced with two simple options – “Add details” and “Delete Question”

To add details your question, simply click on the pencil icon to the right of the question.  You can add up to five updates and they appear below the question.

To delete your question, simply click on the “X” icon next to the question. Note, once a question has been deleted by an asker it cannot be restored.

You’ll also notice that the Asker’s name no longer appears under the profile picture. You can view the Asker’s name by hovering over the picture.

Follow Publicly or Privately

We’ve made it easier for you to stay updated on the questions that interest you. To follow any question, click on the star icon to the right of the question. You’ll see the options to “Follow Publicly” or “Follow Privately”

You can view all the questions you have followed in the “My Followed Questions” tab in your Answers profile.

The questions you follow publicly will be visible to users who view your profile. The questions you follow privately will only be visible to you and you can stop tracking any question by choosing “unfollow”

We hope these changes make it easier for you to ask questions and share what you know. Please tell us what you think and suggest new features on our feedback forum.
