First off, I'd like to clarify for you that the Google Answer
Researchers are independent contractors for Google Answers. We are,
however, well versed in Google Answers policy and can assist you in
using Google Answers.
I did a search for questions asked by you on Google Answers. What I
found were five total questions asked (including this one), one
question which expired, and three answered (not including this one, as
it isn't answered "yet" :-) ).
The expired question:
epson downloads & blank web page
is finished in all manner: there is no way to post new comments,
clarifications and/or answers to that question.
The three answered questions:
upgrade video card
computer won't turn off
recording photos on CD
have various sets of Clarification Requests, comments and answers.
One of my fellow researchers, skermit-ga, prepared an excellent
tutorial on the many options that appear to a Question Asker (such as
yourself). You can view his tutorial, "What to do after you ask a
question on Google Answers
Basically, the flow of the question goes like this:
1) You ask the question.
2) A researcher may answer the question outright - in which case the
question is answered. Or, the researcher may ask for "Clarification".
If the researcher asks for clarification, you may respond to that
request to give more details or to suggest alternatives.
3) Once a question is answered, YOU may ask the researcher (the one
who answered the question) for clarification of the answer. The
researcher then would respond to your request.
4) At all times, ANYONE may post a "Comment". Comments may be posted
by any registered user (you included!), including Google Answer
Researchers. Request for Clarifications and answers may ONLY be posted
by Google Answer Researchers.
I hope this helps you understand some more about Google Answers.
