  • It has nothing to do with you being a level 1.  Your profile shows you have answered no questions yet.  Like someone else has stated already their is a glitch with that button you need to click it a few times to get the blue outline of the box to show.

    There is a glitch with the Submit button. Refresh the page and try again. You also will not be able to post if you have reached your daily limit, and you will not be able to answer questions if an asker has you blocked.

    The Yahoo Answers clock resets itself at 8 pm EST, 7 pm CT, 6 pm MT and 5 pm PST. You will have to wait until then before you can begin to answer more questions.

    You have a level 1 account. That means you can answer only 20 questions per Yahoo "day." That is probably why the answer button is grayed out and inactive. You are going to have to wait until the new Yahoo 'day" starts at midnight UTC/GMT, not midnight in YOUR time zone. IF you are in the United States, that is MINUS 4 hours GMT at 8 pm EDT. 7 pm CDT, 6 pm MDT, or 5 pm PDT.

    Make sure you have the "Answer" tab activated at the top of the question list. The default is "Discover" and those are older questions, many of which are closed to new answers. 

    The other reasons a user might not be able to answer a question is if the user who posted the question has their account blocked, or if the user has reached the max # of answers they can post for the YA day (which is clearly not the case for you).

    1) The user who made the question blocked you.

    2) An unknown glitch that happens with old Y!A user.

    3) You reached your answer limit for the day.

    If its on all of them you may have Reached your Daily Limit for the Day in that case you have to Wait til Yahoo Resets again for the Next day before you can Answer more Questions
