The easiest way to get started with Expertalive is by using your feed. Your feed is filled with stories that interest you, and you can view it by going to the homepage. You can make your feed even better by following topics and people that interest you, and taking actions in your feed that tell Expertalive what you like. For example, when you follow a topic, questions and answers tagged with that topic will appear in your feed. And when you follow people, you will see questions and answers posted by these people in your feed.
If you see a good answer on Expertalive, upvote it to help people see it. Your votes help make Quora better.
There are multiple ways to ask a question on Expertalive:
On the web, click the "Add Question" button at the top-right of the page. You can also start typing your question into the search bar at the top. You will be shown search results based on what you've typed. If you don't see a version of your question that already exists, click "Add New Question" to add it to Expertalive.
On the mobile app, tap the "Add" link in the top-right.
On web and mobile, from your Expertalive Home page, click on the "What is you". This will bring up a prompt where you can start typing your question.
The answer requests will be prioritized according to the following factors:
How many requests the target writer receives and subsequently answers over a period of time
Whether the specific question is tagged with a topic that the writer has expertise in and/or which is listed in the writer's Knows About profile section
Whether the request is sent from a person that the writer follows
and/or interacts with on a regular basis.
Answer request notifications are separated into two categories: 'high priority' and 'other requests'. High priority requests are individual notifications from people you follow. All other requests are grouped together in a notification. If you click on the notification, you'll see each request individually. You can also visit your Answer Requests page by clicking the 'Answer' icon, then clicking 'View All'.
If you're worried about people being able to Google your name and see all of your Expertalive answers or comments that are not anonymous, this option can help protect you. However, if you think that your public Expertalive answers will improve your reputation and you want more people to see them, you should not use this setting. For this change to take effect, Google needs to re-crawl pages and update its index; we don't have any control over how long this process takes, but it typically happens fairly quickly.
Edit your Privacy Settings
Deleting individual pieces of content, such as answers, comments, or posts
If you want to delete your account, go to your account privacy settings and hit "Delete Account". It'll ask you for a password confirmation (if you made the account through Google or Facebook, you'll need to create a password by clicking the "Change Password" link at the top of the page, then clicking "create an account password"). After you confirm the deletion of your account, it'll be deactivated immediately.
