When did yahoo [answers] go online? Did this replace the comments section?
- .Lv 71 month ago
YA has been around since '06, so 14 years this year.
Nothing replaced the comments feature. It was simply turned off 2-1/2 wks ago and posted about here in the YA subcategory EXTENSIVELY since then.
"In order to strengthen and improve community and engagement, we are temporarily disabling comments.
Our goal is always to create a safe, engaging place to connect over interests and passions and we’d love your feedback on how to improve this experience. Please email us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org"

YA went online to a limited number of people who were invited to beta test YA in late 2005 or early 2006. YA was available to the general public in May 2006.
I have no idea when comments on Yahoo news articles started. Comments on YA answers started some time in the the?second half of 2018 but didn't work well until January 2019.
Yahoo disabled commenting on new articles around the 2016 and 2012 presidential elections for the same reasons as Verizon Media has disabled commenting across all of Yahoo.

YA started in 2006. For the upteenth time, the comments were disabled across the entire Yahoo platform, including commenting on YA answers. This was for security and safety reasons. Also, there are legal liability reasons for Verizon because of increasing spamming, violent threats, and attempts to breach security around a presidential election. They did the same thing in 2012 and 2016.

At least a decade ago. I must have been on here since 2010, maybe a little earlier. It was advertised in yahoo!groups-websites
No, Y!A is not a replacement for any comments-section
Added:2006 is perfectly possibible , but back then we did NOT have the option of commenting on answers yet
