Status: Hard at Work


Answers.com as I used to know it before the layout change.

Many years ago, back when I was in elementary, I used to write answers to questions on Answers.com, admittedly breaking the 13+ rule that the site had at the time. I loved answering questions, mostly because I loved sharing what I knew at the time with the rest of the world, even if it was just answering simple things such as "What is 2 + 2" and other questions along the lines of that.

Eventually, however, the site changed their layout and prospects, and I found myself looking elsewhere. A few years down the road, Quora came up as I was doing work on a high school assignment, and I decided to look into it. I began answering questions and saw myself becoming the top writer in topics I enjoyed at the time. As the months went by, I found my writing skills developing more and more, and found lots of enjoyment from it. I peaked when one of my answers became the top upvoted answer on the site, but then began a downhill slide.

Yeah I got banned. Good concept, needs major fixes.

I decided to try doing maintenance work on the site, getting rid of spam accounts advertising fake hacking services that had taken over the topics I liked. Moderation of the site did nothing worthwhile to prevent this from happening and I saw other writers fall off the top writers list in these topics as the bots became more and more prominent. As I reported the accounts, I received a death threat, was doxxed, and had my school called claiming I was trying to hack into their network to change my marks, nearly costing me my final exam marks. I reported the account on each platform that it harassed me on, and of all the sites that happened on, Quora was the only one who did nothing, and banned me in response when I tried making a new account under a pseudonym.

Yes, I thought at one point that this might be real.

Thankfully, that brought me here after I got interested in the site after the Kekcroc hoax and other media that somehow kept landing me in the LMW. I began writing articles for the site in December of 2017, and found my passion in doing so. I've since improved my writing since then (thank goodness), and have made accounts on other related sites such as archive.org where I transfer media, Wikipedia where I plan on making and improving articles on individuals who are long gone, and NitrateVille where I plan on working with others on film digitization once I get a film scanner.

If there's anything I can say about this community is that it's very tight-knit, and I'm blessed to have found it. The people that you find are some of the most humble, hilarious, genuine, kind, and flat-out interesting you can find. They give complete strangers support in their worst of times, as they did with me went I hit rock-bottom, and for that I owe them my best. If you're new and reading this debating on whether you want to join, I have but one phrase to say:
