is apparently the date for the yahoo message boards to be shut down.
Not sure if I believe it though because why would they have put all this work into format changes if they were just going to close it down?
NOT SO per some people called Yahoo
Yahoo! Message Boards website
Effective April 1, 2013, the Yahoo! Message Boards website will shut down. Our message boards on individual properties (like Yahoo! Finance and Yahoo! Fantasy Sports) will remain active. We also encourage you to ask and answer questions on Yahoo! Answers, and discuss issues in the comments section on Yahoo! News.
"Yahoo to shut down seven products, including Message Boards, Blackberry app"
"The product shutdowns, which Yahoo announced on its official company blog on Friday, are part of what the company said are regular efforts to evaluate and review its product line-up."
"After much thought and deliberation, we decide to shut down some products. Before making these decisions, we look at a variety of factors. The most critical question we ask is whether the experience is truly a daily habit that still resonates for all of you today," the company said in its official blog.
Yahoo will be ending Yahoo app for BlackBerry devices, Yahoo App Search, Yahoo Clues, Yahoo Message Boards, Yahoo Updates API, Yahoo Clues and Yahoo Avatars.
