For 16 years, Yahoo! Answers offered a platform on which to ask any question that popped into your brain, with a community of millions providing crowdsourced answers.

The 100 million questions asked range from the best cell phone purchase to how to get a boyfriend like Chris Brown.

But today, it was announced that the platform will shut down completely on May 4, and the Yahoo Answers section of the website will only be available in a read-only mode.

“While Yahoo answers was once a key part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as the needs of our members have changed, said the Yahoo! Answers team in a statement.

“To that end, we have decided to shift our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that better serve our members and deliver on Yahoo’s promise of providing premium trusted content.”

Many of the questions Yahoo! Answers received were outlandish, bizarre, and often grammatically incorrect - but none more so than the one that became a meme of its own.

Yes, we’re talking about the infamous question: “How is babby formed? How girl get pregnant?”

Countless users have addressed the end of the era and how today’s generation might not realize the nostalgia these types of questions had on many for more than a decade.

“How is babby formed was peak internet before memes were memes,” said one user.

Another person wanted to know how we would find out how babby was formed, if spiders have puss puss, or how to use Luigi boards.

Although we may never find out how babby is formed, the memory will live on.
