FixYa Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
How do you post a tip?
The categories should appear in a dropdown as you begin typing. There are many categories, which is why they are not all listed at once. Start typing and you should see a dropdown appear.
Also note that when posting a tip it may be a short time before the tip will show since tips must be reviewed.
If you continue to have problems, please leave me a comment or feel free to contact the Fixya Support Team for more help with troubleshooting.
Hope that helps!
How does fixya make money?
By all the click through advertising that you see all over the page. There is currently a Free 30 Day Trail of Equifax at the bottom of my screen that has just changed to Tier One Rewards and now 'sports Interaction Bet Online'. All the Experts here provide answers for no pay, and just the enjoyment of helping others. The site is now owned by a Capital Investment company. They sit back and watch the cash roll in 24/7 :>D
Do i make money with fixya
You don't. There is no money paid in Fixya dot com. We all do it for the fun of it and the competitive nature of the leaderboard and the love of helping others. The sister site www.6ya.com is the paid site and Experts fix via telephone.

Why do my Questions on Fixya keep getting deleted please?
According to your history, you only have this question showing. Normally, we only delete spam or ill eagle stuff. Recently we have been deleting very old 2015/2018 questions that are unanswered and have attracted a scam website. There have also been glitches where questions haven't posted or vanished. There was talk of a rogue moderator deleting questions to get the points, but never proven. We also delete duplicates of questions, and occasionally, I will see two questions onscreen, delete one, go to answer the other and find that either the OP has deleted it because it was in the wrong category, or another moderator has because it is a duplicate when they saw it.
Okay, post your question today. Refresh the screen. Click on the question and post the URL link to it below here by clicking COMMENT under my post. I will get a notification and see if I can answer it, or at least keep an eye on it. Sorry for the issues, the site can be very buggy due to the scripts..

Does this site charge a fee for membership?
No, everything on this site is FREE Catherine! No fee to join, no fee to ask a question and the Experts don't receive a fee for answering either.
Unlike 'JustAnswer' where you pay about $18!
A couple of tips
Make sure you have full 'make model(what it is)', for general questions and 'year make model' for vehicles.
Make sure you are in the right Category. As you type a make for instance, more text will appear.
Add as much information as you can. The upper box is for a brief outline 'make model (what it is) brief outline. The lower box has no cap on the amount of characters, whereas the top box does.
Re-read your text and spell check before you press Post. To see your question posted, you have to do a forced refresh - CRTL+F5
