  1. Message Formatting Still Broke on iPhone

    You said the problem with spacing and paragraphs was fixed. It is NOT fixed when posting a message on a group site on iPhone. No spacing, and all the paragraphs run together to make one block of text. The formatting is OK only if you post via email to a group, when using iPhone. This needs to be fixed, please.

    • Why does my screen keep skipping back to the beginning when I am reading the conversations? I scroll down and it pops back up.

      Put the conversations back into pages, and load only so many at one time. My screen keeps popping back to the beginning when browsing the topics. I don't want to have to open each one and read it individually. So I don't come to the website often, I rely on the digests which I get in my email. Yahoo site is frustrating with this.

        • Data Base not working- Owner is only one premitted to make changes and only one owner.

          I am the Web Site Operation Chairman for a Military Reunion Site. I am listed on the site as the owner on Yahoo. When listing other members as Owners or Moderators and giving them complete authority to make any change to site, files, and Data base, they still are unable to make any editing of any files. I am the only person that can make any changes or edit file/Data base and this is only when I am on one specific computer. If I sign on with a different computer I can not edit either.

          • When deleting posts, the confirmation banner States "Delete all posts"

            When deleting posts, the confirmation banner States "Delete all posts"

            This is misleading. it should say "Delete all SELECTED posts

              • Fix ability to delete photos. Can't delete photos

                Since 3/12 I can't delete photos. I'm an owner with full privileges and I receive an error message when I try to delete a photo. The message says an error occurred when trying to load content. A fix is important as we are a large 27,000 member group and the photo section will be unusable unless it is current. Thank you for your assistance.

                • yahoo groups page layout messed up

                  Yahoo groups home page appears with all text on left side, and links overwritten by text. Using IE9 on Windows Vista. If I select "tools""f12 Developer tools""Document mode" and select IE8, the page loads normally; however, this adversely affects other web pages, and must be selected every time I start IE.

                  • spam

                    The Yahoo Group (vowpal_wabbit) messages are full of spam messages completely irrelevant to the group. Somewhere 1 in 5 to 1 in 3 messages is a spam post.

                    Can Yahoo apply their e-mail spam filters to Yahoo Groups conversations/messages?

                    It has become so bad that some of the members are asking to move the group from Yahoo Groups to a different discussion forum so we don't have to read all the spam posts.

                      Why do you make the pictures move all over the screen when they go into the slideshow mode????
                      My group members want to look at a picture for study purposes. they do not want to have to chase it all around the screen to try to pick out or read details. Please stop this!

                      • Fix the formatting of the "notes" in reminders

                        The "notes" portion of events reminders lumps all text into one paragraph. Previously, we could separate text with line-feeds, making RSVPs easier to read. Even the event title now shows up in reminders with code rather than punctuation. (' shows as ')
                        Difficult to work with!

                          • Database - still not very good

                            For a long time the Database has been terrible to work with. I have a group that unfortunately have norwegian letters, and one of the words (of many) in the database still looks like this: R鷨vik - and I have used a lot of hours to try to fix things and for me it also seems very slow the database - working like sirup.
                            So I decided to start to correct the errors, since it seems that this will not be corrected by yahoo. I started to search for all these letters that are wrong - so I could change…

                                  In some of my groups - not all - I can´t use the Events option - it is grey. I am the owner and I receive Events in my mail from these groups which I have made before - but it seems like the other problems with the special letters æ ø å are working in the Events I have tried. It is improving the Events.

                                    While the line/paragraph breaks issue is better than it was with regard to posting messages, there is still a concatenation of the first and second paragraphs for me. I'm currently using Firefox, but also use Safari and have had this problem with both browsers.

                                    Please help us separate all paragraphs in our text, not just those that fall after the first two.

                                      • wow, what happened to Yahoo Groups...?

                                        it's been a while since I created a Yahoo Group. I swear this used to be easier -- now I remember how clunky it is...

                                        * can't get rid of "Get Started".
                                        * can't customize the main menu "conversations, photos, files, etc.".
                                        * main menu has wasted button for "About" when it's a few inches below the button.
                                        * I accidentally selected a "wrong" picture for the "Group Description" and there's NO WAY to change it? (searched and poked for 30 minutes...)

                                        • If these sites work so well why can't I delete a photograph from an album?

                                          Why can't I delete a photograph from an Album on my site?
                                          I keep getting an error message that the delete can't load in when I try to delete the photo.
                                          I never had this happen before.
                                          I still hate the way these sites work, because half the time they don't work.
                                          After all this time Yahoo still hasn't developed these sites properly so that we the Moderators can use them without problems.
