I use mysql database and on the database I see anonymous answer table but unlike anonymous asking users don't get an option to answer question anonymously. How can I activate anonymous answering option.

This table "anonymos answer" is for temporarily storing answers posted before logging in. When the user logs in the answer is posted under his/her name.

There is no option yet to make anonymous answers (but there is option for asking "anonymously").

Please note that askbot does not support true anonymity - even on questions asked "anonymously" we still record the question owner, but do not show user's name or link to his/her user profile.
