    A lot. It’s gone downhill since Verizon took over.

    Nobody knows

    many questions go unanswered because they are violating the guidelines or otherwise aren't worth answering

    There's no way to know. People leave, people return, new people arrive. It's always been thus.


    Some reasons questions don't get any/many answers are:

    *They are posted at low YA user times of day

    *They are posted in low activity categories

    *They are poorly worded or not understandable/gibberish

    *They are complex and not many would know the answer

    *They don't interest the people who saw them

    *They are trolling or aren't questions (but statements or requests)

    *They are posted in the wrong category or not the best category to get good answers

    *Some users refuse to reply to a question posted by a user using the Anonymous (blue face) feature

    *Your question is only visible to you due to it being hung in the spam filter (log out of your account OR try viewing your question in another browser in which you aren't logged in to your YA account. If you can see the question, then it's fine. If you can't, then go into it and move it to another category, then back where it belongs. Check it again with a non-logged in account. Once you can see it, you can feel sure others can see it too).

    Hard to say the exact number, but it seems like, at best, there about half as many users as there was during the "golden era" (about 5 years ago).

    Many have left due to the so called improvements to the site and more will leave with this"leave and cancel" nonsense.

    A lot of users left over the Captcha thing and just never came back. So now there aren't enough questions and answers to draw new people or draw the old ones back.

      to me it was more the trolls, capcha was only minor, the junk on here and the nastiness is bigger

    many have left already in their droves over the years due to the format changes.
