How to change back Yahoo Answers to the original format?

This format is as poor as the "New" Yahoo Mail format. Slow!!!! No way of getting answers!!! All in all a very lame program added to the last lame change to Yahoo Mail. I hate you now and forever for making this more difficult than it was.


Thank you! Simon C. You are a blessing!

Update 2:

I have changed over to the Canadian format and I have bookmarked it. Thank you all for your assistance. My thoughts are the same about US Yahoo Answers. Good luck to all of you.

    There is no option to change it back to classic, but if you switch to one of the international Yahoo sites they still use the old format.

    I hate the new format too, so I'm using the Canadian Yahoo Answers because it uses the old format.

    Hi, Michael,

    I could not believe it when I came to Yahoo Answers and found the change ! People were already asking about the change and I didn't know what it was. Now I have been subjected to the Purple Blast ! It is terrible and unusable. The Paid Advertising is unbelieveably bad - it violates Yahoo Answers own Community Guidelines - now Yahoo Answers is nothing but an advertising slot, where people can spend MONEY.There is no way that anyone will bother with Yahoo Answers, including all of the dedicated people out there who are trying to help with their knowledge.

    I decided to follow my usual - "Search Yahoo Answers" and found the answer - Go to another country. Try the UK or Canada, for instance. I was even given the link, which I will try to add here.

    To my surprise, everything was back to normal. I have placed UK Yahoo Answers in my Bookmark Bar and use it everytime.

    Thanks to those in the United Kingdom. Too bad that they couldn't hold onto Yahoo Classic email for all of us.

    It is almost as if those at Yahoo do not ever turn their computers on and see what they have done !

    Good luck to you. Enjoy the link !

    Some Yahoo Answers users are being shown test pages, which is what you have seen.

    The Yahoo! Answers team would like to hear your feedback:

    We appreciate you choosing to use Yahoo!
