Yahoo answers profile has an "about me" in preferences; why does it not work?
It does work. You can only see it when your on Edit Preferences. Others see it when they click your YA username or avatar, even if your activity is private.
Something: I see "About Nikki
I see "About Nikki: it is a beautiful day on the west coast." on your profile. Is that what you wanted it to say? I know that for some reason, we can't see our own 'about me', but everyone else can.
