Please fix the Comments sections. Bring back the old comment format where you can access them and use the 'thumbs'.
Not an 'idea' but a problems I have not found addressed in Yahoo help withe regard to posting comments in various news articles. Starting well over a year ago, I was suddenly not able to 'thumb up' or 'thumb down' a comment. Comments showed little gray squares with question marks instead, although there were numbers. For some reason I no longer had the ability to participate. Fairly recently, I noticed I no longer had the ability to read comments in Yahoo 'Politico'. If 'view comments' are in blue, I can't view as the prompt doesn't work. If they are in orange, I can. I get a prompt to sign in to make a comment, but then when I do, a box comes up to make a comment only. I then cannot read any comments once I sign in. Even, the prompt at the bottom of the article that says 'Read more' doesn't work once signed in, where I am sometimes able to bring up the rest of the article and see comments if I don't sign in. So, now since Yahoo has undergone yet another format change. Most, if not ALL, the articles, whether Yahoo written, or Reuters, or whatever news feed it comes from, there is sometimes NO comments section, or I am not able to access the comments as described above, or unable to comment, or thumb up or down. I was a fairly regular comment or and haven't had any offensive or profane comments that I know of. I may have 4 or 5 'thumbs down' on a comment but that shouldn't be a reason to lock me out of access to reading or participating in comments, give feedback with 'thumbs'. I am on an Android 4.1 tablet. This all seems to have started a year or two ago when you started messing with the formats. Can you please fix this and send me a reply? I know I can't be the only user that is having these problems.

Please bring back old page! Here are the issues I am having that are preventing me from using your news section.
Cannot see what I have posted.
Cannot tell if others posted to a response I make. My comments option has disappeared.
Other's comments for a statement will not open so I can read them.
Can no longer thumbs up or down.
Notifications do not bring me to the page I commented on.
Loading videos are making this whole experience unenjoyable.
I miss the old page for news where I could read other's comments also. When I click on replies nothing happens.
I have rebooted, and refreshed with no bearing on these issues at all. I have used Yahoo on firefox, chrome and safari with no change in accessing the comments on news articles.
It is no longer worth it for me to continue getting news from Yahoo especially after seeing in this forum how many people have the same issues that are not being addressed.
