If you want to continue using your avatar with Yahoo's products, go to Yahoo Profile and upload the avatar you downloaded. Additionally effective April 1, Yahoo will no longer support the Avatars YQL table.

Effective April 1, 2013, the Yahoo app for BlackBerry will no longer be available for download. For those of you who have already downloaded the app, you can continue to use it but it will no longer be actively supported.

Other products that will be shut down in April 1, 2013 incldue Yahoo Clues (beta), Yahoo App Search, Yahoo Sports IQ ( your final lifetime Sports IQ score and rank will be automatically transferred to and preserved within your Yahoo Fantasy Profile) and the Yahoo Message Boards website. Yahoo's message boards on individual properties (like Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Fantasy Sports) will remain active.
