Question about FixYa Computers & Internet

Open Question

Why did my Fixya question disappear after someone answered it?

I asked a question, got a notification that it was answered. Looked at the answer, went to leave a comment, and it said page was not found. Its not even listed under my questions that Ive asked. So I reposted it, hoping the person that answered it before sees it again

Meaning of number beside Stop wanting Answers box?

Hi Gavin,

The number shown is the number of people that also want answers. When you click the Want Help button you will receive notifications about new answers and re-send the question to the correct experts. Clicking the stop wanting answer will stop the notifications so you will not be notified in the case you receive an answer.

I hope that helps to clarify, but you have done nothing wrong.

How long does this take for an answer? is it on my email?

Hi Lorraine:
I'm not sure what you're asking about.
If you've posted a question on FIXYA and someone out there thinks they may be able to help, they will post an answer.
You will then get an e-mail telling you that there has been a response.
If you click on "view entire thread" it will link back to Fixya and you can see your question, the answer, and maybe even some comments.
If you want additional info regarding the reply, enter it as a COMMENT. That way the FIXYA helper will get a notification.
Hope this helps.

Why, when i ask my question (twice now), does a message come up saying that an answer awaits me and to click on a certain place to get my answer, but when i do, there is NO answer. Just a bunch of oth

Janine, you have two choices: Be patient or go elsewhere. The people who answer your questions on FixYa aren't paid staff, we're just people LIKE YOU who answer questions because that's what we like to do. Some times of the day, totally at random, none of us are even HERE to see your questions. It does NOT help for you to post the same question three times, and it does NOT help for you to get petulant - if you're nasty and impatient, we're less likely to WANT to answer your questions.

Now... what are you talking about? Are you talking about notifications from FixYa (which is THIS website), or from FaceBook (FixYa has no connection to FaceBook), or from somewhere else?

How do I get my answer

Hi Mike,

When your question gets an answer you will be notified via email and also receive a notification on the website. To have a better chance at receiving an answer, make sure to provide as many details as possible so Fixya experts will have the information they need to provide a helpful answer.

Hope that helps!
1answer wants to spam my contacts

FixYa does not send spam. Once you register to FixYa, you occasionally receive notifications if your question has been answered or if someone added more information to the thread.
You can alter your email notifications by clicking your name on the top right corner of this page > My Profile > My Account > Email Settings (scroll down).

How will i know that somebody has answered my question or not? And even when somebody has answered it, how will I know the answer?

If someone answers your question, you will be notified in a few different ways.

  1. Email Notification
    You will receive an email that will let you know you have a new answer and can view the answer provided in the email.
  2. Site Notification
    When returning to Fixya you will see a notice at the top of the screen that will alert on whatever page you arrive to let you that a new answer is available.
  3. Homepage Notice
    When you sign in you will also see a new listing under All Activity on the homepage.
Hope that helps!

How do you get alerted if someone has answered your question on FixYa

You will receive an email notification, as well as a notification when you re-visit the site at the top of the screen. You should also see a new notification on your homepage.

I emailed a question and paid. How will I receive the answer to my question. I logged into the site and don't see an option to access the answer.

There does not seem to be any other question for this account. You would have to re-post the initial question and once someone has answered the question you will receive a notification via email from FixYa.
You can also go to once logged in to see all activity including answers to any questions if any.
Best Regards, Ben
