  1. We need mechanism to prevent display of articles over and over

    I've been presented with this article over and over starting last week:
    http://z9.yahoo.com/home/power-walking-falls-between-ramble-race-152329964--spt.html

    I have thumbed-down the sarticle multiple times, but it keeps showing up in my top stories feed. We need to prevent stories that have already been seen from displaying to users. High churn is crucial for today's fast-paced audience.

  2. Functionality: A 'refresh' button?

    Currently, with the design as it is, it's really hard to tell if I have the most current articles and information available for my interests. Something like a 'refresh' button or 'last updated' indicator or some such would help clarify that part of the experience for me. The general sense of time in the reader is that data is scattered and articles that are several days old are nudged right up with articles that are an hour old. More clarity is needed.

  3. Related to rearranging tiles - can we have a 'trash can' to drag and drop unwanted articles?

    I'd like to be able to, in addition to thumb out and thumb down, be able to literally trash articles that don't interest me or that are too old to clear space for new ones. Drag and drop to a trashcan icon (maybe at top bar?) would be clear. The 'personal folder' could be in the top bar also.

  4. Would like to "vote" stories/tiles up or down for how they match my interest

    I actually don't want many entertainment stories, but would like more arts, and I could just delete them or vote up or down so that the page can get better at matching my personal interest

  5. Voting down

    I'd like it if voting down removes the article from the feed immediately - possibly with a fadeout. Just telling me 'we won't show you more like this in the future' doesn't reassure me this particular article isn't going to reappear tomorrow, and it's not giving me fine enough control over what I want suppressed. I might not like the particular person in the article but still be interested in its broader topic.

  6. Tutorial/help

    Help the first time user with some in-line tips or a few nice graphics-based, very simple help pages which the user can always easily get to. Yes, I know that navigation should be obvious but based on user testing, most of our audience doesn't get it straight away and when I was watching all four sessions, I felt that if this person was using the product outside of the lab, they would have given up before spending more than five minutes in the experience. I believe that a "HELP" button of some kind which appears for a bit for a…

  8. Idea : Show me the money first !!! ... what about having a light sign out experience

    zed is for now SI only.
    a lot of users (especially Non Y! users) maybe blocked by that and that s the goal of zed to get new users right? (me the first when i m ask to SI for something, i m very hesitant even when i c the content of teh site / app.

    So what about a simple SO experience with only few default collection, some Y! ones (Trending, politics, OMG, ...) and a search who incites the user to search his own interests.
    then on the selected interest, having a "+ follow" action.
    only on this…

  9. similar articles

    I'd like to be able to quickly pick which articles I want to read and then read it later. Most people like myself don't have a 3G ipad so in the morning when I wake up and I'm rushed but scanning headlines I want to bookmark and then later read on the train ride to work or at lunch on my work PC or later in the evening on my tablet before bed.

    Apple is adding offline reading to it's reader function in the next version of safari so this would be nice to support for Yahoo natively.

  12. links to sharing articles

    it would be good to have some ways of sharing articles, for example after reading a particular article, and i felt like a friend would find it useful/interesting, it would be nice if there was a way of emailing the article to a friend right away

  14. Could we filter out people or events or companies we don't want to read about?

    could there be a definition filter that filters out sub-topics, like: in Music, filter out anything about a particular artist? I have one artist pop up under business and music...

  15. add history to reading activities

    One of the features I like about Google reader is that they provide history of what you read. So, if you want to go back to a previous article that you read two days ago, you can easily go back to find it.

    Can we have some features like this? It could either be similar to what Google Reader has: based on date. Or even better to provide a history search by keywords.

  16. There is no landing page with a preview of all the interests I am following

    Currently all the interests are either hidden on the top menu or one has to swipe to see the interests. Is it possible to have a landing page which previews the top trending article in each of the categories I am following? This way user will be able to discover more content.

  20. Might be nice to add a "Read next similar article" button

    A button that leads to the next article in the same category that I just read.
