Welcome to Quora

  1. 1. So you’ve joined Quora! Here are a few things some experienced users think you will find helpful
  2. 2. Real name policy  First things first! Quora has a real name policy. If you are not using your real name, you may get a name change request, and you may be blocked from using the site until you have verified your identity.  For more information, see http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/Do-I-have-to-use-my-real-name-on-Quora- What-is-Quoras-Real-Names-policy
  3. 3. Quora’s two key policies  The two principles underlying all specific policies are:  Improve the page of answers for each question  “Be Nice, Be Respectful” – Quora has standards of discourse that are quite different to most other sites, so it’s particularly important to become familiar with this  See http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/What-are-Quoras-two-key-policy-principles
  4. 4. Improve the page by providing a helpful answer  Certain types of answers – such as joke answers, and memes – are prohibited on Quora. But underlying each is the core philosophy that answers should make a question page a better source of information than it was before the answer was added. Follow this rule and you’re unlikely to go wrong.  Any variant of “I don’t know what I’d do, but that is a tricky situation!”, “What a dumb question”, or riffing on the topic without answering the specific question asked, is likely to get your answer collapsed.  Read the question carefully to determine what information it’s actually seeking.
  5. 5. Be nice, be respectful Quora has very different standards to much of the rest of the internet. A key aspect of that is Quora’s “be nice, be respectful” policy, which is frequently abbreviated as BNBR. You can read it here: http://www.quora.com/Be-Nice-Be- Respectful-Quora-policy/What-is-Quoras-Be-Nice-Be- Respectful-policy Note particularly that retaliating to perceived violations of BNBR by other users, is itself a violation. Report for moderation to deal with it. (See http://productupdates.quora.com/Report-Content-to- Quora-Moderators)
  6. 6. Questions are community property Quora doesn’t allow for duplicate questions, so each question needs to be asked in the way that attracts the best answers. As such, you may notice that questions that you ask get edited by other users. This is encouraged by Quora, and you should view it help with improving your question rather than be defensive. See http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/What-is-Quoras-policy-on-community-control-of- questions-Should-I-feel-a-sense-of-responsibility-over-questions- that-I-ask-on-Quora
  7. 7. Who moderates the site? Quora has admins and reviewers, as well as employees. See http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/How-are-moderation-and-policy-decisions-made- on-Quora Any other user can edit question titles, question details, and answer wikis, and suggest edits to answers.
  8. 8. Joke answer policy Answers that are helpful and happen to be amusing are allowed; answers that are merely an attempt to be funny but don’t provide any assistance to somebody genuinely wanting the answer to the question are not. See http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/What-is-Quoras-policy-on-humorous-answers-reviews
  9. 9. Images policy Quora is primarily a text-based site. Images are allowed, but only where they make the page more useful. Memes are prohibited except on questions specifically asking for memes. See http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and- Guidelines/What-is-Quoras-policy-on-adding-images-and-videos- to-answers-and-reviews

  11. 11. Other topics that may be of interest  The anonymity function: http://www.quora.com/Anonymity- Quora-feature/How-can-I-anonymously-add-content-on-Quora  Marking answers “not for reproduction” http://www.quora.com/Quora-Not-for-Reproduction-Option/How-should- I-tag-my-Quora-content-as-not-for-reproduction  Preventing your answers being indexed by search engines http://www.quora.com/Quora-and-Search-Engines/What-does-toggling- Allow-search-engines-to-index-your-name-under-Privacy- Settings-do  How your Quora content can be re-used elsewhere http://www.quora.com/Quora-Policies-and-Guidelines/How-can-material- on-Quora-be-reused-elsewhere-What-are-the-licensing-terms- What-about-in-the-case-where-a-user-has-selected-the-not-for- reproduction-option
  12. 12. Welcome to Quora! That should be enough to get started. Quora has a strong and very helpful community. If there’s anything you’re unsure about, search to see if it’s already been asked on Quora. (Often, it will have been.) Alternatively, most admins, reviewers, and Top Writers have been around long enough to “know the ropes”, and may be willing to assist you if asked.  http://www.quora.com/Quora-Admins/Who-are-the-current- site-admins-of-Quora  http://www.quora.com/Quora-Reviewers/Who-are-all-of-the- reviewers-on-Quora  http://www.quora.com/Who-are-the-top-writers-on-Quora  Also: http://www.quora.com/What-are-Quoras-unspoken-values- and-points-of-etiquette
