    • Get to work on the delays to distribution of Yahoo! Groups messages

      You need to fix the persistent problem of delayed distribution of Yahoo! Groups messages. Recent delays have been DOCUMENTED at up to 24 hours...and the full headers confirm that the delay is WITHIN YAHOO!.

      There is no reason for this kind of INTERNAL SCREWUP within Yahoo! unless the company has been so lax on maintaining and operating its own systems that it is failing its basic tasks; and that would only be a reason...NOT AN EXCUSE.

        • Pending Messages Approved Via Web Not posting to Group (or delayed) + No email notification of pending post received

          In our groups it seems (as of a day or so ago) that posts that we approve via web are not posting immediately - if at all - to the group. Also to note is that we aren't getting moderator notifications in our email inboxes of these pending posts to be approved. Whereas the ones we receive email notifications for and which we approve via email are posting immediately. I hope this is helpful info to nail the glitch that may be causing this. Thank you for helping us keep Yahoo! Groups great and useful to so many.

              All my groups are taking a very long time to download at present - this has been happening for a week now - we are in the UK and craft groups.

              • It is getting worse! What is wrong??????

                The Groups system is a shambles. Messages are taking up ro 5 days to post. What is going on? It was so much better in the past.We have used it for almost 14 years. Also, Yahoo has the worst customer support sysatem I have ever seen. Your support people are hiding behind a brick wall!!! No way ro contact a "live person"!

                • Delays in loading and posting times

                  There is a common theme in this help section on delays. This is a major problem within this communication platform. I will be suggesting to our group that we move to another platform if the yahoo engineers cannot work this out. This is absolutely ridiculous. There is a reason Yahoo is falling behind in the social media market.

                    • I select and article, then I get "Read more", then wait 2-4 minutes to read the article, and if there's a video, another 3-5 minutes to view

                      Do away with the "Read more" button.....just take me directly to the article/video, in it's entirety from the start.....why must I jump thru hoops to read an article that's on Yahoo?

                        • You new improvement is awful, I can't get to my groups to see files and photos or the conversations. but I do get daily useless notices

                          Make it more user friendly, not more complicated. Simple may not be as techy showy but sure does make it nice for the actual user if not for the programers job security.

                          • Really dislike the new yahoo finance page. Why can't Yahoo understand they should keep what is good and efficient about them?

                            Bring back old format for Yahoo Finance. It is super useful, efficient and worked very well. I will be searching for a new browser if the new format continues

                              • banner

                                Rotating Banner Displayed - how about adding a feature that pulls images from a group photo album for use on the banner on a rotation in the same manner as many screen savers today simply "point" to a folder full of images? This seems like an easy, quick enhancement that leverages already existing functionality for the most part...and one in Windoze for decades now. Yes, that was an insult. ;-)

                                  • Respected sir i have few suggestions to improve group.

                                    to improve groups you have to remove the following bugs.

                                    1) Unable to Edit some of the emails....
                                    i am unable to edit some emails. when i click on edit button , i cant write a single letter or remove a single word from that email , its like untouchable for me. i have only two option two approve that email or to delete it

                                    2) some times when i edit an email , and save it , the hotlinked images are gone after refreshing the page. and we miss all the beauty of that email. this happens to emails…
