Yahoo Answers is shutting down on 4 May 2021 (Eastern Time) and, as of 20 April 2021 (Eastern Time), the Yahoo Answers website will be 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.
If Yahoo Answers is to become 'read-only' mode what will there BE to answer? Are Yahoo going to post their own questions instead of us?

the delay is simply to give people a chance to READ the answers that others have posted to their questions. No new answers will be created.

Nothing. There will be NO new posting. Users will have a couple of weeks to read through existing posts, if they want (and posts may still show up in internet searches) but that's it. Read-only means just that (no posting, no TD/TU, no reporting...ONLY reading).

It will be read-only for a fortnight or so, presumably so people can see answers to their question, then it will be erased.
