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. Mobile icon, mobile feedback link

    When I save Zed to my phone home screen there is no icon. We should have a graphical button to compete with all the apps for users attention.

    Second, in the card view it is impossible to access feedback link. The screen snaps back up to the last article and the user is unable to access the links in the footer

    The commenting experience needs to allow the user to see what they are typing. Currently anything beyond two lines on iPhone is not displayed in the text field.

  3. remove underscore in interest names

    mobile_advertising is still displayed with the underscore. It should be Mobile advertising

    Also, it looks funny to have the second noun not be capitalized for the interest name

  4. show friend activity & newness in interest view

    When I look at my interests, give me reasons to click into a particular interest (i.e. # of new articles, friends who have read stories, etc.)

  5. Search for an interest at the bottom of a story

    The related interests often give me an idea for an interest. Having the search box right inline might get me to act more readily.

  6. No way to get back to Home page after clicking on article

    There's no way to get back to the same spot in the Home page after reading an article. You go into the weird full-screen carousel and there's real back button to read any additional articles.

  7. When I add an interest - make it feel like I am joining something

    Basically when I hit the add (+) respond with the fact that there are 40 articles, or 19 people, or 2 friends, or it is top topic so that it feels like I am part of something bigger.

  8. Landscape scroll on tablet doesn't snap to stories

    On landscape flick of Home page the article is cut off midway requiring a more manual effort to adjust screen fold/break

  11. I think that onboarding should be more visual

    Today the onboarding is not
    visually appealing.

  13. No way out of user page back to Zed

    Once a user lands on http://stage.zed.yahoo.com/user , there is no obvious link or other way to get out back to Zed main page

  14. get search working

    When I try and select my preferences in terms of content, the fields that interest me are not available. If the search function were working I would then be able to populate this better.
