Answering a Question


Start

You can find questions to respond to either in the answer part of the comp10 home page at https://apps.facebook.com/compten/ or to comp10.com, or you search for questions on the Search Page.

On the question's page, you might be able to enter your answer directly in the lower part. This happens if no answer exists o far. Otherwise, please click on "Write Answer".


Answer

Enter a short formulation of the answer in the answer-input field Note that you may use HTML <a ...>-tags to include links. For instance:

The Facebook app <a href="http://comp10.com/">comp10</a> is what you are looking for.


Details

If you want to provide a more detailed description, you can enterr it in the details-text area. Here, you may use the following HTML tags:

<a href="https://comp10.com/"> a link </a>
<b> bold text </>>
<em> italics </em>


Publish

Decide if you want to publish the new amswer in your Facebook news feed by using the corresponding check box. We recommend to use this option, because this will inform your friends about your answer. If they like it, they can rate it with a good grade. Or they might be able to give some additional hints. If you choose the publish-option, after the submission, a pop-up will appear where you can control which message will be posted and who can see that post.
!!! Please, allow Facebook to show pop-ups in your browser, if you want to use this option. Otherwise you will not be able to post a message to your Facebook news feed.


Anonymously

Tell comp10 if you want to stay anonymous by using the corresponding check box. If it is turned on, no author will appear related to that answer in comp10. You are the only one who can still see that it is yours. Note that the news feed message described above is independent from this option. The option "anonymously" will not affect the Facebook news feed message. It always shows you as the author. However, as said above, in the pop-up Facebook gives you full control on who can see that post.
Grades for anonymous answers have the same effect on your competence profile as the ones for normal answers.


Submission

Click on "Submit Answer".
! You can edit your answer at any time after submitting it, including the anonymous-status. You can also delete the answer at any time.
! In case you also posted a Facebook news-feed message, it is deletable, too. However, this message is stored by Facebook and not by comp10. Currently, for deleting it, you look for the message at your wall, move the mouse pointer to the top-right corner of the message and click on the word "Delete" which appears there.


After Submission

A message below the comp10 logo will tell you if the submission has succeeded. If the "publish" option was turned on, after some seconds the Facebook pop-up for publishing the corresponding news feed message will appear.
You are now automatically watching the corresponding question. You can stop this by clicking on the open eye in the right-top corner of the lower part where the question is displayed. The eye will close, and you stop watching the question.
Sometimes it makes sense to write an answer to one's own question. This is the case if you learn the correct answer from outside comp10 after you posted it here. Afterwards comp10-users can search for the question and find the correct answer immediately.
