Yahoo Answers is shutting down on 4 May 2021 (Eastern Time) and the Yahoo Answers website is now in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account. You can find more information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown and how to download your data on this help page.

Is Y!A closing 5am tomorrow morning UK time?

will the read-only imposition be applies at 00:00 EST?


Do you think their read-only patch will work?  I bet it doesn't, I wouldn't trust the goons to be able to pull a plug out.

    It's due to shut then, but a few years ago I was on the Yahoo Answers Now app. That kept going a few hours after the shutdown time. So you never know

    Supposedly just about any time now... 00:00 EST, April 20th, now, and the site is still up. 🙂

    Not concerned, because I already moved over to Similar Worlds

    much better website 👍

    yes it is closing down because a lot of kids come on here cussing and getting rude. many users went off because of them. some have tons of accounts like Pearl L and then will say, she only has one account but she writes the same answer on here accounts so we know it is her writing with all her accounts. she needs to get a job if she is that bored with life

    Good riddance to Yahoo. It's a terrible site full of glitches and report happy trolls.
