    Either your answer didn't post (happens sometimes), your answer was reported and removed as a violation, or the question itself was reported and removed as a violation (you don't mention if it's the question you can't find or just your answer to it).

    If you dont see it in your Answered Questions List in your Answers Profile then it may have been Reported and Deleted that may be why your not finding It

    Or if your getting a Error message when you Try to Access It then that's a Bug that's Happening to a lot of peoples Answers Profile you cant Fix that Unfortunately Nobody knows when its gonna get Fixed if at all anytime soon

  • If you can not find the question that you have answered and it does not show on your profile activity page then the question was reported and removed.  Did you check to see if you lost 10 points?  If not then just the question was reported and removed.  Not much you can do but move on.

    WHERE can't you find the question yo thought you answered. Do you mean you can't find the question you thought you answered, or your answer? 

    Lots of people have not been able to see the questions they thought they answered in their YA activity profiles over the last 2 months, bit this glitch is not consistent. This actually an eternal YA glitch that has been going  on with activity profiles at different times of the year for years

     You can't fix it. 

    Other possible reasons you cant find your answer is you thought you posted your answer, but the person who asked the question has blocked you, so your answer did NOT post. 

    Or your answer DID post but was reported enough times that computer programs deleted your answer from the YA display.  Verizon probably did NOT email you. If you remember the question, you can appeal the deletion of your answer through the Yahoo Abuse and Spam Help pages. 

    Or your answer did post but is caught in the spam filter and shadow banned. That usually happens to questions, not answers..

    You can look in your profile and in the question list. Start with your profile. If not there, it was either reported or did not submit correctly. If in your profile, but not in the question list of answers, it may be the answer glitch. Try to open the answer from your profile. If it shows, edit it and it should start showing.
