Yahoo! Concept Test Feedback Center

NOTE THAT THIS MESSAGE BOARD IS NOW ONLY PERIODICALLY MONITORED. THE MEDIA EXPERIENCES TEAM THANKS YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR FEEDBACK TO DATE.

Welcome to our feedback center!

Here is how it works:
Enter your feedback in the appropriate category. (Tip: check that an entry doesn’t already exist)
You have 20 votes. Use them to support specific feedback you think matters most. You can reallocate your votes over time by removing them from previously voted on items, or when your votes are returned to you once a feedback is addressed and closed by our team.

Thank you for your participation, and congrats for helping improve online media for millions around the world!

NOTE: If you are experiencing issues that feel like clear defects (links not working; layout breaking; poor performance; incorrect/irrelevant related interests displayed on articles, etc), please use the “Report Bug” link in the product rather than this feedback forum. Doing so will enable us to capture information from your session that will make it easier to debug the issue. Please use this feedback forum for suggestions/concerns about design and usability and to suggest product improvement ideas.

Fire away - we are listening!

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

          Is there related content? It talks about her babies but don't show her pregnant or the babies. I know the article isn't org. content so are we just left with what that article says or is it possible to add any content to it?

          • Images not popping - should they

            Should the small images at the top of a story expand? I would think if I clicked on them they would get bigger. I can't even tell what is happening in them?

            Looking at article of the Today show not mentioning 9/11 (shame on them!)

            • Use escape button to close article and fall back to article tile and not to top of page

              1. For people who are right handed its easier to have escape button as an option to close a article page and go back to article tiles. So can we have both escape / back button to go back to previous page that contains the tiles

              2. When we close the article using "Back / escape (assuming)" It loads the tiles page and it starts from the top again. User need to scroll down again to the tiles to continue skimming from where he left off. I think back button or escape should be done should that it take the…

              • Design for two kinds of Interest - Persistent and Non persistant

                I think Interests there are two types of user interests

                Type 1: Persistent - Here user basically declares his interests like his favorite team or actor or politician etc .... current zed design handles this well

                Type 2: Non Persistent Interest - These are based on current trends / news
                Example: Tornado Irine - People want news about this to be surfaced only when this item is treding. I dont want to add Irine in my interest and later have to manually clean on my interests.

                Few ideas to solve this

                    • Mashable infographic can't be viewed on Chrome

                      http://z9.yahoo.com/home/want-app-developer-heres-infographic-021425536.html

                      Infographic -- huge, tall but thin graphic -- is very small, unreadable (on Chrome browser/OSx) and clicking it doesn't take you to a larger version...and not clear how to view the graphic by some other mechanism. Had to go to the article, and then it was confusing because z9 displays the reduced-size infographic above the article, but mashable displays it below.

                        • Top Stories can't start with stuff that's 9 hours old

                          You can't call something "Top Stories" when the content that tops the stories is at a minimum hours old. There are items here that are 15 hours old, too. We're not delivering on the promise that we're relevant and timely to our users.

                          The industry research is clear on this -- when asked to rank what qualities users want in their news content, timeliness nearly always ranks at the top.

                                    • Accidental interest deletion can not be redon

                                      I accidentally clicked on an interest when managing a collection - and that removes the interest from the collection without any warning. Then there is no way for me to recall what was the interest that I removed to be able to add it again

                                      ideally there should be a confirmation check before removing an interest, or at least have that remove operation triggered by a specific icon (currently it is happening when you click anywhere in the row of the interest)

                                      • Different approach to dual axis scrolling + different tiles view on Top Stories

                                        Hi,

                                        how about a different approach to dual axis scrolling? Following idea for Mobile:

                                        1. vertical scrolling:
                                        -> Zed home is infinite stream of articles (mix of all your interests, e.g. the top stories or latest).
                                        -> only a small tile with article category (interest), article title to allow quick scanning.

                                        2. Tap on the article tile will not open the article, but instead make the tile bigger unveiling an article summary, image if available and also actions like "read later", "share" etc..

                                        3. When an article tile is in focus (e.g. in the middle of the screen) during vertical…

                                          Thanks, Antonius. The vertical scroll you describe in 4. is not a common pattern — separate articles shown in full, stacked vertically — but it has come up in discussions with product and engineering. Your comment on what “the point is” is well taken and certainly identifies two key usecases: quick scan, and easy deep dive (with an equally easy way out : ). Some of your early comments (1) strike very close to the heart of our uture direction. : ) Really appreciate the feedback!

                                        • difficult to know which section will come next

                                          While on a section, say "Buisness", its difficult to know which section will come next and how to bring that section. Its not intuitive to use the arrow keys and the affordance of the arrow is not enough to give the user a cue that there is more content on the either side.

                                            Thanks for the feedback, Sarit. Any thoughts on what would make it more discoverable/intuitive for you?
