Yahoo Responses will be decommissioned on May 4, 2021. The website has been around since 2005, making it one of the internet’s longest-running Q&A sites. Yahoo (owned by Engadget’s parent firm, Verizon Media) details the process in a FAQ spotted by The Verge.

On April 20th, the company will begin sunsetting the network. It intends to avoid accepting new submissions at that time. You’ll have until June 30th to download an archive of material you’ve uploaded to the website since May 4th. When all is said and gone, the Yahoo Answers page will redirect to the Yahoo homepage. As you would expect, the company’s decision to close down the website is based on dwindling user statistics.

“While Yahoo Answers was once a key part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as the needs of our members have changed,” the company says in a message to users. “To that end, we have decided to shift our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that better serve our members and deliver on Yahoo’s promise of providing premium trusted content.”

When it comes to what you can blame for the downturn, one of the problems is that Google has its own Q&A site. As it comes to the bulk of questions, the company’s search engine delivers a widget that helps you to get a simple answer without having to navigate to another page. Another possible explanation is a visit to the Yahoo Answers front page. The content of posting has fallen in recent years, with troll posts receiving the most attention.
