Recently I received an email from Yahoo Knowledge inviting me to become 英文分類管理員. I was hesitated at first as I am already overloaded with work, working full time as a project manager, as a housewife and mom maintaining a family of four, keeping a blog, managing four Yahoo Knowledge groups and at times answering Yahoo Knowledge questions. There has been time that I slept only 2 hours a day for several weeks. Call me crazy. I probably need someone to pour a bucket of water on me.
I hate stress but I always bring stress to my life.
Nevertheless, this seems to present an opportunity for me to provide input to Yahoo Knowledge and at the same time enhance the quality of the answers in the English section. All these prompted me to accept the invitation. I know this road ahead of me would be tough as I am not an employee of Yahoo and have no power or control over what they implemented or will be implementing. I can only provide my input in the hope that it will somehow make it through the tunnel and a difference instead of a drop in the bucket. I don’t know how much weight my suggestion would carry and I cannot correct the current problems of vote manipulation, retaliation or removal of questions based on the existing Yahoo rules. You can see from my Yahoo Knowledge profile that I have been a target of retaliation too many times.
Maybe I will regret taking on this assignment in a few days. However, it is a start. You will never know whether you will succeed or not if you don't give it try. Maybe I will get tired of all these and decide to call it a quit someday. As for now, I will try to hang in here as long as I can.
