  1. Bring back the option to schedule Files to auto-send to pending members

    When scheduling Files, the option to auto-send a File to a pending member is no longer available. There used to be a scheduling option labelled "Pending Subscriptions".

    And if a group had previously setup Files to be sent to pending member, the Management > Control Panel > Notifications page does show a section for Files that are sent on "Pending Subscriptions" BUT these Files are never sent to people who have pending subscriptions.

    A lot of groups depend on this feature because they require pending members to read and reply to auto-sent Files. And because the Notifications page says that…

    • Would like to be able to pause and go back to previous photo when the photos are in the enlarged view.

      I believe that when you first introduced the enlarged view for our photos we could pause and also go back to the previous photos but that function seems to have disappeared. It is nice to be able to see the photos in the larger format but they scroll so fast that we don't get time to really enjoy the details of the photos. Can you make that happen for us..thanks

      • Needed: A searchable database with a graphics field; i.e., jpeg,, gif, etc.

        Presently the database fields allow text only. Since our sites are primarily visual and members upload many pictures, we need a field that will allow these graphics to be placed in the chart. Thanks.

        • Better headers needed

          Yahoogroups should change the mail headers in group-mail distributions, so that recipients can determine the original sender of the mail. This is especially problematic for iPad2 native mail which rips out the descriptive part of the sender and just leaves the group's mail address.

          • Can't access to old Groups having "sports" in url !

            Impossible to access to old Groups having "sports" in url !

            When I type an url beginning by "http://sports.groups.yahoo.com ..." I get an error page even if the neo group exists, error:
            " Description: Could not process this "GET" request"

            For example:

            http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/mariasharapovacenter/

            generates an error (no redirection) and neo group exists:

            https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/mariasharapovacenter/info

            • Fix the scroll function

              Again I ask that the scroll function be repaired so that people can scroll down through ALL messages without being shunted back to the top. Your message board is frustrating to use and as a result my desire to be here is very limited. Pity, because I really need the help offered by the group I am trying to use for a serious health issue. Come on, people, this is the 21st century. We have the technology to accomplish this very simple thing.

                On the mobile site, there is no way to easily access files like on the classic desktop site. Can you add the files tab to the mobile site for iPhone?

                • You need to be able to report spammers so they can be banned.

                  You need to be able to report spam generators and have them disabled after 3 reports, and have an option for a human to remove them selves from the list through some verification procedure.

                  • Replies to Yahoo Groups puts 'garbage' in plain text alterative

                    This is a bug in how Yahoo Mail sends replies to messages sent by Yahoo Groups. The bug is on the Yahoo Mail side. Presumably it could happen when encountering other data as well.

                    This bug happens when replying using Yahoo Mail (full featured) to a Yahoo Groups message. It appears to be caused when objects of the Yahoo Groups footer are encountered when sending replies.

                    These objects are stripped out of the HTML alternative. (That is good.)

                    However, the "Style" information that presumably belongs at the end of HTML alternative is added to the end of the Plain Text…

                    • Improve workflow for unmoderating members in "Moderated for new members" groups

                      To help prevent spam, many groups are set to "Moderated for new members". But when members show they are real and do a good post, it is a lot of work to unmoderate them.

                      When moderating posts on a "Moderated for new members" group, it would be a HUGE workflow improvement if there was a single click option to approve a post and at the same time switch that member to "Default Group Policy"

                      Otherwise as you approve moderated posts, you need to perform 8 steps to switch them and then get to the next post to approve.

                      1) copy…

                      • Cannot view the whole photo.

                        When viewing photos the only way to see the whole photo was with the slide show and stopping on each photo. Now the option to stop and view a photo while using the slide show has disappeared. Our group has descriptions on each photo in our references. Without the option to stop each photo you don't have time to read it or study the photo. Please fix this. The photos are the most important feature of our group..

                                • Don't change my Photo orientation

                                  Yuor Photos section leaves a lot to be desired. When I upload photos, especially ones in portrait orientation, many get turned into landscape orientation. Rarely, a landscape photo gets rotated to portrait. I even had one portrait get rotated 180 degrees; I've re-tried about 10 times and it does it every time. Can't you fix this?? Please keep the orientation that I have them!!!!!!!!!!!

                                  • I found "customer care" totally unhelpful. No replies to my question in Community. And "contact us" doesn't let me contact an actual person.

                                    The "Contact us" icon shows a picture of a woman with a headset, implying that there is an actual person waiting to help us. Instead, there is just a chain of options, none of which addressed my actual issue, which leads to a dead-end with nowhere else to turn for help. I posted on Community but no replies, probably because my issue is rather unusual. I need someone to access my computer remotely to see what the problem is.

                                    • Subject Line links Don't Work on IOS8

                                      I receive many digests from yahoo groups in my email but the link from subject line to message doesn't work on my emails on my phone -- using IOS 8 on an apple device.

                                      Can you look into this and make improvements so I don't have to scroll through so many messages?

                                      thanks

                                        E-groups and yahoo groups (which later became one) were so good for meeting new people and talking about shared interests years ago. One of the most missed features is profiles and being able to see who was online so you could then have a live chat (I miss chat rooms too) on messenger.

                                        Groups are much less social now. I want to find people with common interests by keywords and location and see who's online, and who's profiles are the most active or most recently active. I miss profiles like they were about 10 years ago.

                                        • Our reminders are coming out with a completely wrong time from the actual times of the events in the calendar, which is causing confusion.

                                          Our reminders are coming out with a completely different time for the events than what is in the calendar-it is just randomly making up times! This is causing mush confusion. Please Fix!
