  1. Bring back the profile pictures / avatars.

    The personal avatars were used by a lot of your users to express themselves, and they were fun. I understand that they may have been a bit of a problem for Yahoo to have to deal with when they improperly used and reported. But, Yahoo has now limited user individualism by taking them away. Replacing them with a boring system of collared circles with an initial is not an improvement.

    • Stop autoplaying videos on the Yahoo News home page

      I see a lot of complaints about videos autoplaying when news articles are opened. That's annoying because it is unnessarily chewing up bandwidth. Recently when I first go to the Yahoo news home page, a video autoplays on the upper right side of the screen. I find this *extremely* annoying. I've used Yahoo News as my primary online news source for at least 12 years and now I think I need to look at less intrusive alternatives.

      • Be more balanced

        Stop being so liberally tainted! Grow some balls and represent all of your users and the US as a whole. I thought better of Yahoo, guess I was wrong. You'll loose me if you don't start being more balanced and diversified.

        • stop placing ads as if they are articles. its annoying because some of these ads are stupid and spammy.

          while browsing articles which are interesting i have to be double checking myself to avoid clicking these ads. You should put a border or something around the ads. some of them are very dumb and spammy..

              • Stop embedding sponsored links to look like real news.

                Yahoo used to have a well organized news section. Now it's a joke.

                      • Dear YAHOO, stop linking to ANYTHING on ANSWERS.COM, that site is the WORST!!!

                        Dear YAHOO, stop linking to ANYTHING on ANSWERS.COM, that site is the WORST!!! Once on their site it's a snails pace to get from one page to the next while you wait for 9,999 ads to load on the side bars on BOTH SIDES of the page. that site is USLESS. Anytime I click on a news item that leads me to that page, I not only close that page but the Yahoo page that lead me there, to escape net lag.

                          • How Come Yahoo "News" is Just Left-leaning Stuff?

                            Shouldn't Yahoo "News" be more than just licking the feet of Obama and other leftists? Shouldn't it have a tiny bit of ideological balance?

                                Yahoo has quit returning me to my place I was at in the news items. After reading a story I would hit "return" and would be where I was before going to a story. Why has this quit working?
