About Me in the Yahoo Answers Profile

How can I remove the "about me" statement in the Yahoo Answers profile? It states that I am now in the Help Community but since it is closing I am returning to Yahoo Answers. The statement can be misleading. When I clear it and save it leaves the page. When I return the statement is still there.

They did reduce the number of things you can now say i your "about me", but just make any needed changes 

 

Then click "save" on the bottom left of the page.

 

 I do not know if you can completely delete it or not, but I have made minor changes to mine over the years.

I tried again with no luck. I hope someone on the Yahoo staff can help before this forum closes.

Possibility.  It could take a bit of time before the change rolls out on the site, it's been a while since I've done mine.  I do remember it took about a months time before changing my profile picture on Yahoo answers rolled out.

 

Maybe staff will have a better answer after the weekend.

I still can not remove the old "about me" in Yahoo Answers. Can a staff member fix it before this forum closes. My YA name is Barkley Hound.

Hi @Barkley_Hound

Answers tech support is very limited but I'll try to get this sorted for you.

Thank you. It is gone. I will leave it alone since I may never be able to change it again.
