On Quora, users have the option to anonymously add questions and answers.
Posting an anonymous question:
You can anonymously ask a question by clicking on the drop-down menu, "Show to followers" and selecting "Anonymous" from the list. After you click submit, your question will be posted to Quora and you'll be taken to thefor the anonymous question. This link is your only way to anonymously make edits to the question, including the question text, source and applied topics. Any edits you make on the public question page will be associated with your name in the edit log.
When you add a question, you will automatically be opted in to receive notifications from the question via private follow. If you would not like to be associated with the question in any way, you can unfollow the question by unchecking the option in the "..." menu under the question text on the public question page.
Adding answers anonymously:
To write an anonymous answer, go to the "..." menu below a question and choose the "Write Anonymously" option. This will take you to thefor the draft of a new anonymous answer. After you post your answer, that link will be your only way to edit or delete your answer in the future. It is important that you keep track of that link because there is no way for us to recover it for you if you forget or misplace it.
Important to know: What's always public
Any actions that are not taken using the Anonymous Edit Link will be public. This includes things such as:
- Commenting (including questions you asked anonymously or answers you wrote anonymously)
- Requesting answers from someone or from Quora
- Merging questions
- Suggesting Edits
- Editing answer wikis
- Reverting edit log operations
- Editing a question that you didn't ask (including the question, source, or topics)
In addition to these actions above, there are many actions on Quora that can't be done anonymously, such as following topics, following other users, sharing to Facebook/Twitter, and sending Quora messages. So remember that these actions are always public, even if you take them on the page of a question or answer that you contributed anonymously. A good rule of thumb is that if the action is not done using the, it will be done publicly.
