    No, I stopped using Yahoo answers around 2013, sadly.

    Pre-2011 Yahoo Answers was actually utterly different, and some of the topic groups had very good userbases (I used to hang out in Mathematics, Physics, Wordplay, Science, Travel, History, Language and so on). You would be surprised to learn that the quality of answer back then was often higher than Quora, and (for maths) sometimes not too much lower than MathOverflow, and occasionally better. Pre-2011 YA also had much less cliquishness and broader appeal than Quora: answerers could be math professors, inquisitive teenagers, retired people, average people from all over the world and all walks of life. For a window of ~2007–2011 YA used to work quite well.

    Nothing like the spamfest Yahoo Answers later disintegrated into post-2011, after Yahoo first offshored then laid off all the human moderators, then tried machine moderation with a skeleton support staff, then mothballed Y!A around 2013 (along with many others of their online properties, as they trimmed costs and tried to shop the company around).

    It’s truly quite sad to reflect that almost a decade before Facebook existed, Yahoo had created a vibrant worldwide community between Yahoo Games, Yahoo Messenger, Mail, chatrooms, news, sports, customizable homepage with lots of content, Yahoo Personals etc. But then Yahoo failed to do anything with that huge community of online properties, to deal with spammers, excessive advertising, and totally missed the Web 2.5 transition to mobile (think Zynga/Facebook) or to add more user-customizable social media functionality (feeds, photos, and later video clips). Also, Yahoo’s products were balkanized and the different parts of the company didn’t interoperate, or couldn’t access each others’ data.

    There’s a morality tale in there, that stickiness is not as strong as you think it is, and that internet properties can fall just as fast as they rise. Think Zynga, Facebook, MySpace, linksharing/curation/discovery engines (remember Digg, delicious, StumbleUpon, Mixx?), MSN Messenger, Google+ and Hangouts. Who will be the largest social network in 2028? if social-media is still a standalone proposition by then.

    I never use any of the answer services. In theory, they should be effective, but in fact the "best" answers are often the dumbest, people write a lot about what they don't understand. That is, it turns out the forum, but... only by asking a question you are waiting for an answer, not a conversation.

    Yes, I have used Yahoo Answer Once. but this is not too good because, no one replied in comment section. Quora is much better than Yahoo Answer.
