**Update: Question Recommender has been enhanced to allow you to reject questions that you don’t want to answer. You can do this by hovering over a question in the Recommended Tab and then clicking the “X” button. This will prevent that question from appearing again in your Recommended list. We hope you like this improvement**
We know that as a member of the Answers community, one of the most rewarding and worthwhile experiences is to answer the questions from other members and share your knowledge.
We know you spend a lot of time looking for questions that pique your interest or that you can relate to so we want to help you find these questions quickly. Therefore, we hope you will enjoy our new feature – the Question Recommender – which will help you discover questions that suit your knowledge and interests based on your previous activities on Yahoo! Answers.
Soon, these recommendations will start to appear in a new module called “Recommended” which will appear on the home page and category pages. As we are first rolling out a trial version, not all of you will see this immediately. This is our way to test and check that everything is working well. We will eventually roll it out to all English language sites. In the future, we plan to extend this feature to other languages as well.
We hope you enjoy using ‘Recommended’ questions. Please note that it’s in its early days and this is a self-improving feature. The tool will evolve and recommendations will update based on questions you choose to answer, so that you will always have a fresh set of options to choose from.
