1.An application, or rather a site operated by Yahoo which enables users to ask questions in a variety of different categories as well as answer them too. Answerers strive to get the best answer, which gives them points to excel through the Yahoo Answers Levels.
2. A site where you can spend hours trolling or using the answers system to play stupid games and overall waste a hell of a lot of time. This is especially refers to the polls and surveys section, which strangely enough hardly ever has polls or surveys in it. Instead, there are numerous troll questions and humorous inquiries. However, serious askers stumble upon this area, unaware of the trolling they are about to receive.

A website by Yahoo. People from all over the world who have an account can ask and answer questions. They can be as ridiculous as "im i pregnant"? or "what language do they speck in china?". It has become quite popular which is probably because they give a points system.
Yahoo! Answers is actually a good site considering the majority of questions asked are pointless. Yes I have an account!
Yahoo! Answers is a site wherein only politically correct questions and answers that don't offend even the easiest people to offend are allowed and where if you aren't a slave to their anal retentive guidelines you are treated as an outcast and your account is eventually deleted.
The Yahoo! Answers staff need to pull their heads out of their butts because they delete questions and answers (and even accounts) without even paying much attention to whether they genuinely deserve to be deleted.
Yahoo! Answers is a question & answer website run by Yahoo! with a specific point system unique to the site.
There are 7 different levels which are used to guage a person's usage of the site. About a year ago they actually meant something but now once you're at level 5 on the site you're as far as you can go.
There have been countless complaints directed at Yahoo! Answers and Yahoo! Customer Care for "wrongful violations" in which case trolls, spammers or personal haters would use the user-abuse-reporting tool excessively in which most cases they were automatically processed resulting in Q&A being taken down and even entire deletion of Yahoo! accounts. My personal advice from use of the site: don't use Answers and have your primary email on the same Yahoo! ID, bad idea.
Oh well, I just got kicked off Yahoo! Answers for the 20th time today, I'll just go and open a new account since I'm not IP banned.
"Yahoo! Answers" is Yahoo! Inc.'s solution to the average person's unformatted search engine questions. It allows Yahoo! E-Mail holders to ask any number of pointed questions, such as, "What is wrong with my vagina?" or "How can we stop Jaden Smith?" as well as, "Who is the President of France?" and, "No seriously, wtf is wrong with my vagina?"
Users can then receive answers from Yahoo! E-Mail "point seekers" - a special brand of people who try to answer as many questions as possible, then voting their own questions as the "Best Answer" in order to gain a delusive sense of Yahoo! internetz seniority. Because of an unparalleled level of quality control in the review of questions, users can generally expect their questions to be answered incorrectly or - with luck - answered unintelligibly.
"Yahoo! Answers" Question: What steps can I take to fix my own cell phone?
Best Answer - Chosen by Voters: Why bother? Throw that sh*t out and get a new one! Problem solved, bitch. Next question!
