One's questions are always open for contributions. In YA, generally one only has 7 days to have a question answered, then it's considered "resolved" i.e. closed.

What other sites - apart from WikiAnswers - can help you with the answers you need?

Yahoo! Answers is also a good site, other than WikiAnswers. But I recommend WikiAnswers over Yahoo! Answers. WikiAnswers is the best Q&A site and it has the best community. Yahoo! Answers isn't always correct, as well, and you cannot change the answers or spellings on there. On WikiAnswers, you can edit about everything to make the site better. Yahoo! Answers you can't, and it is a poor Q&A site.

How do you unsubscribe from Yahoo answers?

Yahoo Answers is not a subscription service, so you can't unsubscribe. Only the Yahoo Answers team can DELETE a Yahoo Answers account. Closing the Yahoo EMAIL ID will eventually deactivate the linked Yahoo Answers account, but also closes everything attached to that email account. After 4 months, the Yahoo Answers profile WILL disappear and show a message stating the account has been closed. But ALL the questions and answers from that profile are still visible & searchable on the Yahoo Answers site. All IN VOTING or RESOLVED Q&A remain the property of Yahoo. The safest thing to do if a person wants to leave the Yahoo Answers site is: Click their avatar, ♦ Delete open questions and answers to open questions. Then click the 'edit my preferences' link. There: ♦ Blank out the avatar, nickname and 'About Me'. ♦ Close links to Yahoo Profile, IM and/or email. ♦ Disallow fans. Remove contacts. ♦ Set Network and Q&A to private.

Who are Answers' competitors?

Some of the competitors to Answers include Yahoo!, Quora, and Answer Bag. Each site has its own advantages. Answers has both crowd-sourced and professionally written content, and offers other products and services such as surveys, slideshows, gossip, cloud content, tablet content, etc. Yahoo! is a complete web portal, offering news, search engines, celebrity gossip, email, and much more.Quora is mostly a Q&A site, but they do offer blogs. Like Yahoo! Answers, it has more of a community feel about it than Answers. Answers is a community too, but everyone groups off more, and user interactions are more personal, whereas in Quora and Yahoo Answers, you are dealing more with the open public.
