  2. Stop ads with scantily clad women on home page!

    I occasionally view my MyYahoo! home page while at work, and the advertisement box frequently comes up with scantily clad women, right at the top of the page. I cannot move this ad box nor hide it, and I will need to find another home page or risk termination at work. Please be sensitive to the type of ads you are FORCING users to view.

  3. Use quality advertisers, no more cheap swimsuit photo ads!

    The type of cheap looking skin ads on Yahoo! makes it look like a fake site. Choose ads that fit the content and are more professional. How bad is Yahoo! doing anyway??

  4. Be more balanced in your reporting hire some conservative reporters. Do we really need a ********** story every day.

    Do we really need to see 2 homosexuals kissing everyday. How about focusing in on real issues like ObamaCare,the economy,maybe have a liberal point of view (that should not be hard for Yahoo) then have a conservative counter point of view (that will be very hard for Yahoo) It is called balanced reporting. Yahoo reporting right now is no different then listening to the lams-stream media. If you brought conservative in to the mix you would become much more popular ever wonder why Fox News has more viewership then CNN and MSNBC combined. You would thing Yahoo would do it…

  5. Personal editing feature

    The personalization feature of the news feed does not work. I have been properly editing certain news items for three months now and still receive edited articles. Yahoo just seems to ignore my delete items yet my past delete selections are kept in memory, apparently the program function stops at this point. For example I have selected not to view any "Dear Abbey" stories every day for three months now and every day there it is again. You do not have to be computer literate to see you wrote a program one way and promote it as another.

  7. Reuters images poorly cropped by Yahoo site

    Reuters images in the news pictures section are very poorly cropped by Yahoo - heads of people are portraits and other pics are often chopped off in the wrong place (through the head). Check the original pictures - even on the Yahoo search result page they look normal but if one clicks them they are erroneously displayed. See the one below:

  8. Change the shortcut key of pausing / unpausing a video.

    When viewing an article with a video, I will often PAUSE the video (usually by clicking on the video while it's playing).. Then, I will start typing something down in the COMMENTS section. The problem is: whenever I use "SHIFT" while typing a whole word (to put that word in CAPS), I will next press the SPACEBAR, after the last letter in that word.. Often, my pinky finger is STILL holding down "SHIFT" when I press the spacebar, especially if I'm also intending to type the NEXT word in caps (but this also happens when I'm NOT typing the next…

  11. Your story reporting and general poor quality of e-mail.

    I would hope you would employ writers with more than middle school level talent. Incomplete ideas, rambling, scant knowledge of topic; these are only a few annoying traits your writers have. ALL of them.
    E-mail is just broken. It has been and always will be, I guess. When I first came on, it was very adequate for me. your constant "improvements" have been the bain of my on-line experiences.

  14. Same articles appearing at the top of the feeds.

    The same five articles are always at the top of the list in each section, often for weeks or months at a time. Why do I see articles from early December at the top of the US feed in mid January?

  15. You haven't changed the Politics section headlight articles in WEEKS! I realize Yahoo! is so pro-Obama it hurts but enough is enough!

    You haven't changed the Politics section headline articles in WEEKS! I realize Yahoo! is so pro-Obama it hurts but enough is enough! We get that Obama thinks if the Republicans just go away we could have a breakthrough 2014. It literally oozes out of his very being.

  16. Do not turn the news page into a picture board!!!!!

    It's slower to navigate,
    pictures do not allow you to read quickly the title and decide what to read,
    only 6 or 8 news are displayed on the screen,
    kids will not read the news by making then look cute,
    but young adults, middle aged and older adults will be turned off.

    It's not a matter of being cute, but to be functional.

  17. 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…
