  1. Still cannot see thumbnails

    Still unable to see thumbnail previews of photo attachments in pending messages downloading them one at a time is foolish

    • Cannot see names of photos to properly reorder them

      This problem has been posted by others, and you have declared it "completed" and "closed" when in fact you have NOT addressed it. When I select "Reorder Photos" I see the photos in the album without names, so I cannot even manually reorder them to the original alphabetical or numeric order, as I could in "classic Yahoo." And there's no option to automatically correct the ordering. So my photos end up in a random jumble.

        We’ve introduced the ‘list’ view where the album title, creator and date are displayed by default for all albums. When viewing photos in an album we also have the ‘list’ view.

      • DATABASES STILL PROBLEMS after revamping

        I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

        Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

        However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

        1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

        example: I try to sort out…

        • Cannot Click Through Pages on Yahoo Groups, Since NEO, When Mac is Using Safari

          Since Yahoo Groups has transitioned to NEO, Macs running OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) using Safari cannot mouse click to open any link or page. The page hangs with a "Loading . . . " message. This makes Yahoo Groups limited to "read only" for Group members without either a laborious work around or changing browsers.

          The only workaround is to continually right click to open either a new window or tab multiple times. This bug does NOT happen when accessing Yahoo Groups with an iPhone/iPad running iOS7 using Safari, or with a Mac running a browser OTHER than Safari.

          Since most…

          • Make the subscribe, unsubscribe, and other email commands reliable

            One of the most common failures reported for Yahoo Groups email commands is that the user never received, never noticed, or never responded to the Confirmation Request email that Yahoo sends. This problem is particularly noticed for the -subscribe and -unsubscribe commands, but is a problem for all of them:

            "Activities available via email in Yahoo Groups"
            https://help.yahoo.com/kb/groups/SLN2455.html

            In the last several years anti-spam technologies at various email services have become ever more vigilant, and the confirmation request emails are very susceptible to being treated as spam. Ironically, spammers were also the reason that the email commands required confirmation: otherwise…

                • Please resolve the Yahoo Group file issue behind "Invalid path." error messages

                  Many files appear listed in various folders within our two groups ("PM_Co-Leads_Forum" and "PM_Co-Managers_Forum"), but when any of us try to open, cut, or delete these files we receive an "Invalid path." error message. (Note that none of these files contain an apostrophe in the file name, but many contain other special characters such as underscores, hyphens, ampersands, etc.)

                  Perhaps these files were once cut into the clipboard in a move process, but then something happened and they weren't moved properly so now they are in a sort of limbo... there but not there? That's just a guess on my…

                  • Users have quit participating because they can't understand your new format? What can I do?

                    Users have quit participating because they can't understand your new format? What can I do? Frankly, older members of groups can't understand how to use the new format. Frankly, I have baffled too. What can be done before I loose the majority of the group populations of the two groups I manage. You new format is not user friendly for those over 50, or for visually impaired users.

                    • FIX NEO - STILL FULL OF BUGS!

                      We expect an answer to every one of these points explaining how you have fixed it.

                      NEO format does not function properly. You claim to have fixed all the problems but that is not true.

                      1. When moderators edit a pending message, as soon as you click edit, the message disappears. You have to scroll a long way up to find it. It should appear right in front of you.

                      2. Automatic messages upon joining still will not go out no matter what you do with scheduling and notifications... it doesn't work!

                        • Allow group owner to set default sort order for links and files.

                          We had a world class well-organized research archive on the John Muir Trail, but the new Group Format has ruined the useability of the research archive. For one, it does not default to sort alphabetically. This is a very important feature. Can you imagine going into a library and seeing books organized by "last bought" or "last checked out". No, that would be absurd. Well what you have done with links and files in the folders is equally absurd. The default sort order should be alphabetical. At least let the group owner set a default. If not go back to…

                            For reasons we cannot fathom, the upload date on all the old photos in our Group has been changed to February 25. Apparently, you must have made a system change on that date of some type? This makes it virtually impossible to search by date for any of our uploaded photos prior to February 25, Can you please change the dates back to our original upload date?

                                I have contacted customer care about this issue and they suggested I contact Suggestions, and I will also place this message on the Yahoo Forum in order to reach a larger audience. The Files section by default is sorted as per alphabetical order. This includes the Folders and the Files within each folder. This makes it quick and easy to locate information and edit if needed, with the ability to go back and forth to each folder without it changing the alphabetical sorting to a disorganized listing which happens when it is sorted only by date. This sorting by alphabetical…

Some are saying they cannot even get on to the Database at all - we use the Database extensively - it is the main feature for my groups for swapping art.

                                  • From "Visit Your Group", About page not removed after clicking on link

                                    Steps to reproduce the bug:

                                    1. Click on "Visit Your Group" link in an email. Note that the About page is displayed. Note that the page address contains a parameter of the form, ";ylc=,<Many characters>-". I believe that this is part of the bug.

                                    2. Choose a link (e.g., Conversations, Photos, etc.) and click on it.

                                    3. Note that the About page is still displayed (an BUG), although the page address is as expected.

                                    4. Page down and note that the expected material is displayed after the garbage material from the About page (a BUG). The About page material should…

                                    • All My Groups - Email Preferences - Show History lacks Last Bounced Message

                                      "View History" for a bouncing member now shows moderators Last Bounced Message and associated tables (Weekly Bounce Summary and Recent Bounced Messages).
                                      All My Groups - Email Preferences - Show History needs the same, no matter whether the email address is in Bouncing status or not: members need to see causes of message loss in order to complain to their email providers, even if few messages are bounced.

                                      Moreover, moderators need to see Last Bounced Message and associated tables not only for bouncing members, but for all members (in order to help not tech-savvy members).

                                      • There is a problem with the fixed scheduled messages

                                        The scheduled messages that has just been fixed, still has a problem.
                                        If you look at the options in Notifications, there are several new options with pending being one of them. That's great, but if you go to the files section and click on the Schedule button, those new options do not appear there.

                                        As a work around, you have to select an option, so the file appears in Notifications and then select the correct option from there, i.e. Pending.

                                        Please fix this so this extra step isn't necessary.
                                        Thanks for getting the initial problem fixed.

                                          I cannot find an online form or an email address.

                                          I have a very serious Yahoo Groups problem that needs to be investigated by the technical team.
