  2. 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". .

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. Sort news by region.

    Again the news is all over the place. Sort as you used to by geography. Asia is NOT in the M.E.

  12. Adding an icon for sharing on WeChat.

    On Yahoo, you have icons for sharing on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Could you add an icon for sharing on WeChat? WeChat has active users of 300+ billion. Many people feel very inconvenient not being able to find such a button on your pages.

  13. Please include the actual dates of all articles. Include the hour span too. Many use both. I prefer the actual date.

  14. Your new font choice for article titles is horrid - looks defective. CHANGE! PLZ CAP 1st letters in title words-IE: Dude Wins Contest Medal

    Yahoo needs to change thew title font. The one you now use is awful. Absolutely strange on why Yahoo would use such a mess. cannot read words clearly. Looks like you have a problem with your site the way the letters are deformed. Please use CAPPED letters for the first letter in article title words. I have no idea why many news sources do not. Looks like just another sentence within the article otherwise.

  17. Delete the old news. I saw and read some of your stories yesterday.

    If it appears on your news page more than one time, delete it.

  18. Bias filtering

    It appears that Yahoo's algorithms for determining who is allowed to post comments on news stories is set to filter out those with a more progressive bias. I discovered this when I attempted to post using my primary email sign in, and after several posts was unable to sign in anymore. I subsequently created a secondary account and was once again able to post comments several times, but now find that every time I "sign in" the comments module refuses to recognize my account. In discussion with others I have found that I am not the only one to experience…
