  1. Comment Section Thumbs Up/Down vs Heart

    It appears that you replaced the thumbs up/down with a heart in the comments section. The up vs down feature was a great differentiator that brings people to Yahoo over other news sites because it shows a greater spectrum of user feedback.

    I recommend bringing back the thumbs up/down options.

    • Quit having me click twice or more!

      When I click an article to read, I don't want to have to click another link to 'read more'. Why do you think I clicked the link in the first place, to hopefully have to click more links? I immediately leave the page and never look back. Same with a full page ad, I just close the browser window and move on. If you want readers to stay on your site maybe you could make it easier without the annoyance of redundant clicking.

      • Comments section

        Hi, Yahoo, your comments section was your greatest asset, with the thumbs up and down as an indicator of public opinion. You attracted many users because of this feature. The 'my comments' history viewing function also captured the loyalty of many users. Perhaps you could have monetized the comments section with advertisements. With the new format lacking the up and downvote and 'my comments' viewing functions, however, I will be abandoning Yahoo news. Your service now offers nothing of value that sets you apart from the competition. Thanks for the years of news.

        • Trump haters is Yahoo.

          Stop the one sided reporting. You have made it so obvious that you are against Trump and all for Clinton. Your job should be as reporting any news is that you run articles that are in the middle, not leaning so far one way or another. The constant slam articles against Trump that you allow to be posted are quite frankly, disgusting, not only have you made it obvious that you are owned by Obama and Clinton, you have failed the test of being fair and equal to all, shame on you, its as if you are deliberately making stuff…

          • Leave the comment section like it was, a thumbs up or down. Won't be doing anymore I guess.

            Put the thumbs up or down back up. New format makes it useless, a heart shape or delete.

            • Stop making us click to "Read More!"

              You've made us click twice to read a story and twice to close the two windows - I've been using Yahoo since its inception, but am now sick of it. Google News - here I come.

                • Trump

                  Report fairly about Trump and Clinton for once! What a gross understatement has been made of Hillary's past blunders and years of dirty laundry, plus the gross overstatement of Trumps' assumed motives and intent. Yahoo is short on wisdom on this one!
                  Just report the news please.

                  • Again with the comment section changes.

                    Yahoo continuously keeps trying to change the comment section. That is the main reason people use yahoo news. Last time they did it, people left in droves until they mostly turned it back to its original format. It's going to happen again. Without the comment section, with thumbs up and down, not that stupid heart, I once again will use competitors news sites instead.

                    • Trump

                      Become a news source again and stop trying to help Clinton. Everything that's posted on Yahoo is negative on Trump but ALWAYS positive on Clinton. I'm a daily reader but the bias is making me not want to click your site any more. Please be fair to both candidates. Stop bashing Trump all the time and always praising Clinton.

                      • Yahoo, your stories are incredibly biased against Donald Trump. I have used Yahoo as my news page for over a decade but have had it this ti

                        It would do this country justice if you started posting the numerous stories about Hillary Clinton that are not so favorable. I checked the site today and nothing! You have multiple negative attacks against Donald Trump and his children so why not report the news in an unbiased manner like respectable news outlets should. All I can see is another media outlet working for the Clinton/Democrat machine. I have used your search engine for news and as my home page for over a decade but I am through with your incredible bias. It is heartbreaking.

                            How come you always have negative stuff about Donald Trump and Not a bad thing about Hillary Clinton ? Do you know all the corruption she is involved in and yet you forget your biased liberal ways and only put the negative things about trump. How about all the people that wont vote for Clinton or all the scandels ??? But nothing is mentioned its all Trump did this Trump did that it is very clear you have a Bias against the Gop nominee

                                  Continual bashing of Trump, no stories on Clinton (protection by omission). NABNAHJ 'journalists; 'applauded' her? Journalists, really? If Trump spoke to a 'white journalist' organization it would be a major headline! How about covering how few people show up at her rallies and speeches? Why are you not covering her continual lies?

                                  You and rest of media did not cover the thousands of protesters outside the DNC convention - and the problems they caused, but a few protesters at a Trump rally are major news.

                                      post non-biased news stories when it comes to political news. these one sided news stories are really lame and shows the public ( in your eyes) your beliefs. WE want news of both candidates and just as much negative stuff you say about Trump we want to hear about Hillary. STOP being so biased and do your job report the news on everything Not your stance

                                      • Broken comments section

                                        The up and down vote option on the comments was an important feature and it has been eliminated. If you want a good template for how to do it right go look at reddit. I will be over there from now on.

                                        • End the reuirement to click "Read More" to see a whole article - it's frustrating!

                                          Many Yahoo News articles now require you to click "Read More" to read them fully. Not only that, but clicking Read More opens the full article in another tab. All of this means that you have to click twice as many times for an article AND still have to close the orphan tab of the original article page with Read More on it.
