  1. Make sure you don't have the same preview photo for two different stories on political unrest in two different countries. (2/24/2014)

    Make sure you don't have the same preview photo for two different stories on political unrest in two different countries. (2/24/2014)

    On yahoo.com's main page, in the articles' previews, these two articles have the same preview photo, even though they're describing political unrest in Venezuela and the Ukraine.

  2. Too many Videos and Gallery items on my news feed

    I prefer to read. In recent months, there has been an increase in videos and gallery selections. I'd prefer NOT to see them. Give me the option to turn them off and replace them with something more relevant to my taste.

  3. Bring back the archive. I liked seeing the latest news at the top of the screen in date/time order. The new format is all but useless to me.

    I don't like revisiting the page and having to scroll though what I've already seen to get at what I'm interested in. Put the "new" back in news please.

  5. Why can't I get new that isn't days old?

    I don't mind articles that are a few days old but it get's annoying when all of the articles that yahoo recommends are several days old. I'm an avid user but I am sick of reading news that is 3-4 days old. These are articles that Yahoo is saying are recent stories. You do realize that your not the only news site right? I can often find something on an opposing site days before it's on yahoo and when it is finally on yahoo it is timestamped as being days old. They often sit their for days on ends afterwards…

  6. Why yahoo can't orgenize news in their right sections ? You can find articles about Asia in the Mid. East section, & vs versa, and it is tru

    Many times you'll find articles that don't belong in the section you find them, ie. Mid. East news in the Asia section, S. American in the Asian section and on and on.
    Is it so hard to make sure to post articles in the right sections ?

  7. Factual Errors in the Story Below

    http://news.yahoo.com/chicago-deep-freeze-cold-colder-coldest-181428384.html

    Chicago has not has 26 days below zero, we have had 26 days when 0 is counted. We have had 23 days below zero, which is in 3rd place. We only reached -2 earlier this week, not -3. And Chicago has CERTAINLY had more than 6 years with below zero temps. I assume that sentence means to say that only 6 years HAVEN'T had temps below zero. Holy factual mess batman!

  8. Make deleting comments easier!

    Make deleting comments easier. It would be great if instead of seeing an error message of "Sorry, we are having trouble connecting right now. Please try again" 50 times in a row, the comment would delete on the first try.

  12. Old news articles posted before current news.

    When a news article has been posted for 24 hours let it move on. You still have the West Virginia drinking water story before current news. There are several others that way. Scroll them down before posting a newer article. It isn't right that you have to scan the headlines to get to current news about a third of the way down the list.

  13. Why am I getting Herndon, VA and Sunnyvale, CA news and weather although I live in Los Angeles, CA, and my provider is Time Warner Cable?

  14. Fix the commenters name script(s) in the Yahoo News comments.

    It seems like every time I go to Yahoo News comments all people are now identified as "Commenter" instead of their actual username. Even my own comments are posting as coming from "Commenter". .

  15. Gentlemen

    I am really concerned about the way that your editors are handling the news stories. In the past 2 years I have seen the presentation of the regional storeis under WORLD NEWS go from very good to now just plain bad.

    First of all does any one of your editors have any concept of the regions that they place a story. Have they a basic knowledge of world geography? IF NOT then they need to go back to school.

    Example today 18 of Feb when you open up Middle East News the majority of headlines are ASIAN.... Not Middle East…

  17. Get rid of the feed to Facebook. I don't know what is going on with Yahoo, but I am no Facebook person.

    Yahoo has been a mess since this Facebook feed. In fact, in the last week or so the site has been full of errors and malady's Facebook is not life in general and Yahoo is making it that, joined at the hip it seems. The news pages and everything else with Yahoo since they did the mail change is a mess. Sorry Yahoo, but nothing is right.

  18. Page view

    Hi Yahoo,
    It would be great, If you could include number of views on each page (when we hover on news ).
    This not only give priority, but also tells the audience about importance/publicity of story

    Thank you

    Feed the **** Gerbil. He is slowing down on the treadmill that posers your site.
