I literally think Yahoo is 10 times better.
All people reply to these days is basically 1. sex 2. how do i look and 3. stupid and pointless polls (ex: whats your favorite ice cream flavor)
Nowadays when someone is in actual need no one seems to fucking care.
The website is called GirlsAskGuys not LetsWasteOurLives
For example i'm in desperate need of aid with math right now, and i've been trying but I can't seek any answers from anywhere else, so I came here, but right now people seem to be interested in takes about how "I hate human beings" ._.

Yahoo may answer the questions involving math, but as a former avid yahoo answers member, lemme tell you-- yahoo answers is pretty awful compared to GAG lol.
To just list off some reasons:
-There is no community feel. It gets boring after awhile. You can only answer something and move on.
-Most people don't put any time and effort into answers. GAGers in generally express their thoughts MUCH more.
-The site layout of Y! A is kind of crap ever since they switched from green some years ago.
-You don't get giftcards for answering stuff.
-You can PM people for additional help.
GAG primarily focuses on relationships and things like that, but it also has sections for sex / how do I look (which few sites have) / silly stuff.
People hardly answer your stuff on Yahoo Answers actually. You'll get like 3 responses max per average question. I've had many questions go unnoticed on Yahoo, and that was when I really needed help as well.
To summarize: I disagree with your statement: The community is not shit. It isn't perfect, but it is the best I've seen so far.
Math questions here tend to go unnoticed on GAG because...
1.) GAGers know more about relationship stuff like that rather than academic things.
2.) Teachers and such are better instructors when it comes to this. If it was too late to get teachers help by the time the assignment came out (especially in the middle of the night before it is due), that, to be frank, is the fault of the question asker for procrastinating.
However, there are sources like Khan Academy. Sure, they won't tell direct answers, but they help greatly in solving math. Typing stuff in directly via Youtube also is nice.
3.) The "how to" in the math makes sense for getting help with (albeit GAG is not the best place for it), but the math itself should be done by you. It is your homework and is meant to help you get better. Also, many people do not enjoy doing math in the first place when it has no benefit for them. It is a lot of work.
You also asked the question in the middle of the night (for people in the US -- the largest user base), and didn't give it time to get responses.
It is totally your choice to procrastinate on homework or ask a question on it and hope for the best. However, asking the question with unfavorable circumstances and stereotyping GAG as a shit community seems a bit uncalled for in my opinion.
I don't mean to sound mean or such as I write this, but just want you to see things from the other angles.0

GaG is not a math tutoring website. There are websites for that purpose. Yahoo has a much more broader community with sub-categories. Like any site, there are internet trolls. Whereas people will make Takes about how they hate human beings, Yahoo answers has a plethora of people who have multiple fake accounts going around trolling. Have fun with Yahoo... I would avoid it like the plague. That's just me.2
