  1. Dark mode and fluent like design, easy access to search.yahoo homepage

    A system wide dark mode would be great. A fluent design or acrylic theme I think would look wicked BECAUSE your image and video viewing already remind me of it. Your video viewer/wrapper, or whatever the proper term for it is, looks slick and cool with that dark acrylic like/similar material, BUT we got that white clashing with it. An acrylic white theme and black theme would look sick. If you could include the motion (don't know what it's technically called) where material lights up wherever you move your mouse like Windows 10 has then that would be aesthetically nice…

  2. Stop with all the video playback, especially when not connected to the article I am reading. Will stop using the web page if you continue

    Quit with the worthless automatic video playback with the annoying story playing with awful music. It is annoying already. Plus having something not associated with the story I am reading.

  6. More Fleshed-Out Yahoo Answer Cards in Web Portal

    Web Portal:
    Yahoo should give more attention to yahoo answers snippets in its web portal. "Is Russian an easy language to learn?" This question gives us a snippet but the snippet contains a hard to see border. The snippet should be like Bing's reddit feature where you can scroll through the top responses. You only get one answer on Yahoo. When mouse is over card then card should show depth animation for visual aid (like Bing does).

    Search.Yahoo Homepage:
    You could include the ability to ask questions via the search.yahoo homepage. Make the page scrollable like Bing and include the…

  7. Refurbish the Yahoo news portal

    The News.search portal looks outdated and is weak.

    The news section should have a continuous scrolling like Bing.

    The News snippets should look like cards to add depth, and the cards material should be acrylic like the yahoo image and video viewer/wrapper. Include the ability of the card to light up when your mouse is over it like how Windows 10 does. You video viewer/wrapper is sort of like that, but it just lights up a card, which, still looks nice but being more like Fluent Design would aid users because it gives them visual cues.

    The news snippets are…

  9. Add an image trending area

    Make one like Bing's BUT have trending categories be pictures that are trending on sites like Devinart, Flickr, Getty, etc. Would drive traffic to those sites which makes good relationships with them, no?

    If you were able to include an icon that suggested comments on such pictures whose sites allow comments then that could entice clicks.

  10. make better ads for helping the hungry

    quit showing kids playing with food for the million meals project!!
    The kids don't have gloves, food handler permits, and all food shown must be tossed out. Not a good ad for feeding the hungry by wasting food
    while kids play in p-nut butter and jelly and loaves of bread to throw away and waste!!!

  13. My neighbors and I just finished a party where we all were celebrated removing CNN from all of our tv sets. WHAT A GREAT DAY.

    CNN is a propaganda nerwork for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Your propaganda channel has relegated you all to becoming *** CLOWNS and SWAMP DONKEYS. NO NEWS, NO CLASS and NO MORALS.

  18. search in UK only

    What I originally liked about Yahoo, was that by the simple click of an option on the main header, I had the ability to search UK ONLY or UK & Ireland websites. So that my search results listed only websites (eg retailers/suppliers) from the UK. Now, it lists every sod*ing website across the globe, just like Pooh-gle does. If I wanted that many pointless results from my search, of retailers who are going to charge double the product cost just for the shipping, I'd be using Pooh-gle!!!! Please bring back the UK only UK&Ireland quick-click search options.
