Foruming, with a twist! - UPDATED - UPDATED AGAIN Review with images

AdvantagesCheap, community

DisadvantagesMany non-paying members

"...site ~ Okay, a bad thing, JustAnswer.com charges the answerer 50% of any money made per question. You can earn $0.50 to $100 for answering a question (depending on the person asking the question price, these prices are after the 50%). The money is retrievable via PayPal after you reach $20 (easier said than done). Another bad point is only a very small amount of members actually bother to 'Accept' your answer. The person asking the question ..." Read review

The definition of a web scam

AdvantagesYou could get a good answer really cheaply

DisadvantagesTake it or be harrassed until you take it

"...who is a expert on justanswer.com I asked a legal question and got a very good answer, But lawyers have very specific knowledge, and can give you very good "out of the can" answers to common legal questions. Try getting a good answer to "I have corrupted system data on my PC - what can I do? I am a computer expert myself, but have gone to justanswer.com to avoid doing hours of research and having to implement arduous solutions. If you know nothing ..." Read review

Quick review of justanswer.com

"I used JustAnswer and instantly realised that the "Expert" did not know the subject and palmed me off with some nonsence then hit me with a plea to accept his answer (meaning payment) when I replied to say he had not answered the question he responded with a second similarly vague response. As I understand most of the experts are US based and as my question concerned a UK domestic appliance product of a specific type and model the expert was lost. On that basis it is clear to see why no one pays.

Don't waste your time on this site.

AdvantagesOpen forum to post questions and answers on any topic.

DisadvantagesOH, where to begin. Nonpaying customers, no expert comradery, very cut-throat, low payout, waste of time and energy

"This site is set up as a live advice site similiar to Keen or Kasamba, etc. They recruit "experts" to answer questions and clients post questions, receive multiple responses, and decide whether or not they want to pay for them. Expert credentials are not verified. Clients can read all answers as long as deposit is paid. Lots of kids cheating on their homework, which is sickening. Purported "nurses" and "veterinarians" answering health and pet questions, ..." Read review

A former expert

AdvantagesWill take your money

DisadvantagesLots of incorrect information

"The truth about Just Answer and it's experts. Just Answer's experts evaluate each other. Since the experts that have been there for a long time can make a pretty good income, they do not like to see new experts come to the site. This cuts their income. They will report them to management. After so many reports, the new expert gets a email saying ,they can no longer be an expert on the site. The new expert has no appeal rights. No way they can even ..." Read review

DON'T ASK JUSTANSWER - JUST AVOID

AdvantagesThey make lots of money to your cost

DisadvantagesYou pose questions that are just not answered!

"I have just replied to jstanswer for the fourth time giving reasons why I am far from happy with their service. Its like trying to hit a shadow. It is just another US of A scam - apparently to find a way into your accounts where no doubt a few unlawful withdrawals will be made unless the Bank is warned. I have now requested them to remove my details from their database for the fourth time. Either staff on their customer service desk are skilled ..." Read review

Another former "expert"

AdvantagesAn way to make some extra cash

DisadvantagesNot all but a lot of the experts are bitter, backstabbing and cliquey. Lots of disadvantages...

"Jake is absolutely right! Just Answser’s experts DO evaluate each other. “They do not like to see new experts come to the site. This cuts their income. They will report them to management. After so many reports, the new expert gets a email saying, they can no longer be an expert on the site. The new expert has no appeal rights.” - This is exactly what happened to me. I was on the site for just under a year and it that time became the top expert in ..." Read review

I am an expert on justanswer.com

AdvantagesHelpful, fun, interesting, meaningfu

DisadvantagesExperts rarely get to find out what happens down the road.

"The last two reviews were by people who share a last name, and a grudge, against the site. I read the reviews and knew that the second reviewer had been an expert who was embittered before I realized he admitted to being a former expert. I have been an expert on the site since the summer. I am a lawyer who used to practice law in Ontario, Canada and I can tell you that our credentials are verified. I am not a lawyer who cannot find work. I am a ..." Read review

Just Forget it

Advantagesnone

DisadvantagesIt's a waste of time and money.

"I have been a member of just Answer since January 2007, and have received 3 moderately useful replies in the past (none solved the problem: the advice wasn't wrong, just basic and, in 2 of the 3 cases, obvious..) Yesterday, however, was another matter entirely, and leads me to agree with the reviewer who called JustAnswer the definition of a bogus web business. In brief, I asked an auto repair question, received a bad link to an answer, did finally ..." Read review

Taking money from my account

AdvantagesNone don;t go there

DisadvantagesI would not deal with them again

"I asked a question on 20th Aug 2011 about my car.I e mailed them a couple of days later kept on checking my e mail no answer. So I e mailed and asked for my money back no reply and no money back. I just left it and thought what a fool I had been. However when I check my bank statement I found they had taken £22.00 each month since and still no reply. My account shows I have £22.00 credit but where has the other money gone I should have a credit ..." Read review

Expert Quality is sacrified --- Money more important than Quality

AdvantagesSome well qualified Experts

DisadvantagesMany, many,unqualified experts

"Emily Su-lan Reber Porter, J.D., (Harvard Law School), is the Director of Expert Quality at Just Answer.com. Quality is key at JustAnswer they say. "Our Expert Quality team is focused on the quality of Experts and their answers to customers on the site", they say. Really. Well I am sorry Ms. Porter that even though you have a JD from Harvard you have minus zero understanding of the Parenting, the Relationship, Mental Health and Agony Aunt Categories. ..." Read review
