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.

The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

  1. can the layout/display be individually adjusted to, e.g. list format?

    Would it be possible to give the user the option to change the tiles format into list format for example (more boring but maybe less "busy" and easier to read?) Or also ... different tile size/format?

  3. "explore related interests" should be restricted to interests WITH content

    when you select an interest from search results, and there are no results, then the 'related interests' should ALL have content, otherwise you get caught in frustrating loops.

    Could you add the Ctrl-F feature so we can find keywords/articles faster?

  5. can "Top Stories" duplications be filtered out?

    seems that the front page "Top Stories" is a set of duplicate articles from the next pages that have articles sorted by Interest "collections". Can the duplicates be filtered out?

  6. Add "Up" and "Down" votes to bottom of article

    By adding the "Up" and "Down" thumb votes to the bottom of the article, you'll have a much more natural user engagement scheme and will be a natural lead into the Related Interests module.

  9. Olympics news is too old

    Olympics just started. How can I see real fresh content? My olympics tiles are all 1day to 10 hours old

  10. Clicking outside the menu doesn't not close it

    I expected when the menu is opened, clicking outside of it will close it. But instead it navigates to a article

  15. Interest declaration process is too time-consuming

    In my view, there are just too many interest to choose from. I think the process of interest declaration should be less time-consuming and intrusive.
    For example, it may be better to collect interests as the user reads articles.
    When I got to the first screen, I was impatient to go through all of the presented collections and wanted to hit the "done" button asap.

  16. River End Card feels like dead end

    The river end card feels like a dead end (even though it promotes other things I might be interested in). I always find myself wanting to swipe to the summary page of my next interest.

    At least there should be an easy way to get back home.

  17. Content is not fresh enough

    I understand certain content can't be fresh all the time. But in interests like finance and sports i have been seeing the same tile that are 3 or 4 days old.

  18. The space up to the horizontal line takes up to 30 percent

    http://stage.zed.yahoo.com/home/china-hails-space-missions-success-crew-returns-earth-045054238.html

    The space on top, has the title, the provider, time. Then some white space. Before I can read, 1/3 of the space is taken up.

    Also, the font size seems a bit squeezed tight. The spaces between paragraph seems too big

  19. RSS Feeds

    I'm seeing a lot of truncated content coming from RSS feeds from partners whose content we have full rights to. Is there a reason we're pulling truncated content vs full feeds? e.g. http://stage.zed.yahoo.com/Arts%20%26%20Entertainment-yct:001000031#

  20. Would love to be able to organize my interests or have interests be sorted by strength of interest

    Right now interests are just alphabetical. It would be great if the interest summary pages would be sorted by what I'm most interested in or allow me to custom order the interests. While I enjoy seeing news on some of my more obscure interests (e.g. Berlin), I want my core interests to be first.
