    Hello frnds,i am the member of yahoo ans since last 2 mths, t last day i saw that yahoo community & guidelines banned my a/c and i dont why? As i know that i gave the answers of all question in a manner without disturbing or any harm of yahoo guidelines.
    "You have posted content in violation of our Community Guidelines or Yahoo! Terms of Service. As a result, your account has been suspended from Yahoo! Answers, and you will no longer be able to access this service. Community Guidelines exist to keep Yahoo! Answers a safe and useful community."
    Can anyone tell me that whts the reason behind it...Please. I am confused. Help me as soon as possible.

    I think your have posted something promotional. After 250 points you can post a link / url, but that should be relevant to the question.

    You probably broke the Answers TOS and posted a link as others have mentioned.

    There are two major reasons why Yahoo answers account gets banned -
    1. You may use some words or phrase which are prohibited.
    2. Your answers were reported by other members.

    A better question would be, why is Yahoo answers so important to you? It seems from the other posters here that they know exactly why you got banned and it's because you were using Yahoo answers for your own personal link farm.

    I feel your have posted a little promotional. After 250 point you can post a link / url, but that must be related to the question. Or one more things have you use copied content or anywere, Or you may used a little words that are not allowed by Yahoo guidelines.

    First of all, you should contribute to Yahoo Answer before you add any link in resource..

    And you shouldn't add links on every answer, it should be random..

    Yahoo answer website policy is very strict. if you say something like advertising or same word or service as you signature you will be banned. I will suggest not to use any link or text in signature. then you can answer any questions.

    for making backlink from yahoo answer website you just update your Yahoo profile properly and put your link there.

    Could be something illegal for yahoo's policies and terms, that's why you're banned.

    We always try to put our questions and try to get the solution by the user for every question and answer related property. So no need to use promotional content in case of yahoo answer. If you will continue in this manner then sure you will achieve the higher position and good traffic for your website.

    Hope you understood.

    It's a common problem. After my 4 account being banded i give up using yahoo answer. Each of time i tried my best to follow the community guide line. But could not understand each of time how broke the guide line. My answer is chosen the best answer by asker or by voter but the answer is reported after a while. I mailed in support but there is no reply. But i discover something from that banded. Do not answer any question if a top contributor already answered the question. And if the contributor is from India never ever answer here. If you ask any question and find any top contributor's answer chose his answer best. When you answer a question tell your other friend to like your answer if possible. Tnks.

    I think some folks are just there to make other people lose points and possibly get banned. There's a whole of targeted traffic out there (60 million users last time i checked ), and most internet marketers can't just help but cash in on this fee traffic source. They just want to garner points and milk traffic at all cost.
    I think you should get another account and play safer this time.

    My account got banned after years of posting awesome answers that took a huge amount of my time... I am angry now and have decided to go and buy a few level two accounts and become a spammer! LOL I think that is the only thing that works.

    You think you are doing the right thing and then BANG, your account is gone. And you do not deserve a reason because you actually mean nothing and your answers were never a valued part of the so called community anyway. Too sad.

    The moral of the story is to create content where people appreciate you and where they will treat you like the real human you are.

    I just posted about this on my blog and as you can tell, I am angry!
