    Considering they've been rolling out a new format for the past several weeks, it's unlikely that closing the site is on the agenda for the near future. It wouldn't make sense to spend the time and money making the changes they have this Summer (adding and removing features, format change, etc) if plans were to end YA completely any time soon.

    Just because Yahoo Groups isn't very active, doesn't mean any other part of YA is on the chopping block. It does make sense for them to evaluate every area of Yahoo and determine whether the revenue being derived from it is well in excess of the cost of keeping it running.

    All that is a rumor and don't believe it. Remember Yahoo will let us know well in advance when they close down this site.

    I've been hearing Yahoo Answers is closing, since 2008 .

    No reason to believe the same rumors are true now,

    Looks like they are redoing it with the logo and answer minimum limit and captchas.
