How come before you post a question on Y!A, it sometimes shows you existing questions under the question box?

    That was part of the format change back in Oct 2019. Old questions, of a similar topic, appear below new questions. It doesn't appear useful to me at all, as after a new question has been posted, users will answer even if a question posted years ago has the same answer (after all, if the user who posted the question was interested in searching the site first, they wouldn't have posted their question, which they still need an answer to).

    Yahoo is trying to show you Suggested Questions that may Already have the Answer to your Question there trying to save you some time

    Because this site wasn't meant for posting questions that have already been posted and answered.

    Shocking, I know...

    so you don't post an identical question or it shows you answers to similar questions
