  4. Attention. As of tomorrow night, the website Jiskha will go offline permanently. Since 2005 we have tried to develop a helpful website for students in need of help with school. Unfortunately, pranksters and trolls have made the experience on Jiskha less than helpful and we feel that it would be best for everyone if we close the site. We want to thank everyone that has supported us throughout the years. Stay educated.
