hi all,

we can answer questions here as an expert, but I can not see old answers when I search for something. WHY ? it says buy premium service but if there are answers those answers were written by us experts. it's really strange for me what do you think about it ?

You need to either get the premium service or get to 10000 points or somewhere near there to get it free.

You could do it in a day or two if your answering the questions quick enough.

With your experience you shouldn't have much problem getting a lot of answers, its just if you have the time to wait for the questions to come in :-)

The enlightened reason is because you can help other people solve problems. The practical reason is that if you answer enough questions to earn 10,000 Expert Points total and 3,000 Expert Points in a month, you qualify to receive Premium Services at no charge. The "I'm bored" reason is because it beats chat rooms and Solitaire. The best reason is that nobody knows everything, and you might actually learn something. Take your pick...

Up to you really. When you get to 10000 you get unlimited points anyway, you may even get them unlimited now anyway!
