New user here, just saying hello :) [I Participate In Yahoo Answers]

So as we all know, Yahoo Answers is shutting down soon. The site is currently in read-only mode, but I saw a couple of posts over there recommending Similar Worlds, so here I am, going to give this website a shot as well as I use other Q&A sites.

In any event, YA is pretty much a dead website, since you can't ask and answer anymore.

Even saved my Yahoo avatar picture ;)

Hello, I'm from Yahoo Answers too. From what I've seen of this site so far it is nice. Nothing can replace Yahoo Answers though. I had a little cry last night about it.
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@446022,Bushmanoz] So far, other than that one person, everyone else has been nice and friendly :)
Bushmanoz · 56-60, M
[@1201479,twiigss] lol..there is always at least 1
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@446022,Bushmanoz] Unfortunately yes. Always has to be that one :-/

[@967051,Darksideinthenight2] Believe what you want, I honestly don't care. I'm a long time, Yahoo Answers user. I got on today after I got home from work, decided to get on Yahoo Answers. Then I saw a couple of posts on Yahoo Answers where people said, "I recommend trying Similar Worlds"

Then I said to myself, okay I'm going to give that website a try. And then I came here, made this account, uploaded my Yahoo avatar picture that I saved and that's the story. If you think it's some alt or fake account, I don't care. But I will tell you this... THIS IS NOT A FAKE/ALT ACCOUNT!!!

Welcome aboard

I hope you'll like it here.

I apologize that you were harassed, not everyone was open to new members joining in. Which I am sure you've seen on Yahoo as posted by the user under the name "Mr".

You may sometimes run into similar behaviors and even misunderstandings but there are loving, kind and wise members you'll find valuable once you get to know them.

Make sure to read the TOS, block any members harassing you and report anything that breaks the TOS too. This website is partly community moderated.

Have fun.
[@1201479,twiigss] You just got to find a person that doesn’t like to talk much but loves to listen to you, It worked for me. I’m the talker and she’s the do’er. Good balance. lol
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@605647,DarkHeaven] As long as there's no arguing. That's the one thing I learned after the fact, was that if I'd just taken more time to talk things out, everything would have been soooo much easier.
Everyone here uses this emoji.
[@695370,Straylight] oh baby. I use it all over my booooody.

This site is a little different then YA, we ask questions, make statements and write stories about our experiences. YA was very strict about questions only. This site is more interesting and as an added bonus you can offer your opinion without censoring. We can also post memes here you put in the URL and they take if off the internet for you.
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@423488,curiosi] Yes, that was the biggest thing about YA I didn't really like, was that it was so strict to that answer and question format. My problem is I can keep going and going, and before I know it, my whole screen is this huge story lol. I try to keep it short and simple but I just can't help it 😆
FRESH MEAT!!!

[@967051,Darksideinthenight2] I saw your posts about it. I'm not making any assumptions. Time will tell.
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@517284,HarryRidesTheShortBus] I have blocked that person, because I am a real person. I came here from Yahoo Answers, because I saw people recommending this website. I don't stand for harassment and false accusations. I said in my very first post hello, and introducing myself, and he says I'm a fake account. Not sure what he is talking about, but I don't need that crap.

hi!! Welcome, you are the first yahoo answer user I have come across! What do you think so far?
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@348601,Bubbles] I like the format. It's a lot more free form than Yahoo Answers was. I did hit a little snag with a person on here, but that has been taken care of. Thanks for the warm welcome 😊

I was on a yahoo chat room 20 years ago, does that count?
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@1073121,Leggs] That's a long time ago. I remember the days of AOL chat rooms. Sooo many good memories. I wish these places were still around, but unfortunately they are all but gone :(
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@1201479,twiigss] I was mostly on MSN chat rooms but they got spam so bad towards the end that you couldn't even enjoy it.
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@1073121,Leggs] Ugh. All I remember about MSN is whenever you'd open internet explorer for the first time, it would take you to the MSN website and omg it took forever to load.

There is a creepy user here.. ceep an eye out for them.
[@1178785,Eclipsed] You ain’t gotta call me out like that. Especially like I’m not even here. Hmph.

[@605647,DarkHeaven] 😓 I thought you went to bed already.

Welcome. Asking and answering questions is a part of what happens here, but this place is a lot more free-form than YA.

hope you enjoy it here.
twiigss · 41-45, M
[@15458,Usedtohaveanoffensiveusername] Well I hope I can. I came here from Yahoo Answers, and I've already got someone saying I'm a fake account. How can this account be fake, when I created it earlier today?? I'm not sure what that person is talking about, but I've blocked them. I'm a real person, I'm not some bot, or some fake whatever.
Pretzel · 61-69, M
[@1201479,twiigss] yeah, we have some idiots on here.
just block and keep on going :)
