Why did i get a violation for asking a question in the horoscopes section, please explain?
I asked in the horoscopes section ”when’s your birthday?”
it wasn’t intended to be chatting,just wanted to know people’s zodiac signs.im just wondering if it was automatically deleted or it was reported by someone?
also,theres similar questions recently in other sections and some from years ago that were not deleted?i don’t understand,i feel its very unfair.
ok,thanks everyone.i understand now.
Answer by Barkley Hound
Asking zodiac signs is like asking age, it serves no purpose, therefore it is chatting.

It could be that you were reported for chatting.
Here are a few examples of what Yahoo! Answers consider chatting:
* How (are you, old are you, was your day, is everyone today)?
* What are you/What am I (doing, thinking of, wearing, etc.)?
* Guess my/Can you guess my/What’s your (name, age, sex, weight, birthday, location, etc.)?
* Who is from…/Who plays …here/Who wants to chat
* Do you like my (avatar, web site, poem, etc.)?*
* Who wants to celebrate my birthday, drivers license, first 100 points, level 7?
* Where is user (nickname) gone?
* Avatar games and games of any nature
If it was reported by the Community, you should receive a violation notice via email.
If no violation notice was sent, then you were pretty fortunate.
UPDATE: It is not true that the only way a question may be deleted is if it get reported. There are other possibilities.

Questions like that are considered chatting. In Yahoo terms you just where trying to promote conversation not seeking knowledge.
Yahoo!7 Answers is a question-and-answer community of people sharing knowledge. We provide a couple of different ways for members to connect with one another, including email, instant message, and a comments area, so chatting in questions and answers is not allowed. When people use Answers to chat with each other, it lowers the quality of the site and inhibits knowledge-sharing. Yahoo!7 Answers is not meant to be about gaming or playing a game, it is about sharing knowledge with other Yahoo!7 users across the world and, for this reason, questions involving gaming are not allowed.

The only way questions get deleted is if someone reports them. Someone reported your question but no one has reported those other questions.
You could report them and click the top button. Than may be there question will get deleted as well.
But be shure that they are breaking the community guidelines though
Don’t worry every person gets a violation sometime on this site.
I have received at least 4
Answer by H-man
Sorry, but that is chat and isn’t allowed, and one or more users reported you, which is why you got the V-mail.
Just because others break the rules and appear to get away with it doesn’t mean you or any of us can.
It isn’t unfair it was just unlucky for you.
Answer by sassy25
You cannot solicit personal information. Rule is a question must seek knowledge or advice beneficial to all. Your question or any answers are of no value. In the real world the excuse “Everybody Does It”
is unacceptable. Read the community guidelines, take the quiz and learn how to use this site correctly
