  1. New "Improvements" has broken something - Layout Elements overlap. (Z issues?)

    In both Chrome AND IE10 Yahoo! Groups is currently unusable. Many of the "new and improved" elements are cascading on top of each other so that I cannot see elements correctly and cannot find links. Poor implementation.

    Windows 7 64 bit. Chrome and IE10

    • you can explain to me how it is that I receive group emails but you won't let me sign in on the web

      for some reason you have decided to delete my account yet I'm still receiving group emails for the group I am interested in.
      this is fine, but from time to time I'd like to search group posts and I can only do that online, but with no account I can't sign in.

      • Calendar Reminder Post Not Viewable in Digest Group Email

        The group 's Calendar Reminder post body is no longer viewable if a group member gets the group email in Digest format. In Digest, all you see is the title of the reminder, not the body describing what the reminder is of. This needs to be fixed. Also, on the group actual webpage, you get no preview line of the Calendar Reminder post under Conversations, only the title. You must then click on it to see what the reminder is about. This never used to be like that. Please fix it.

            The "slim" view doesn't stick anymore when viewing group messages online...having to continually reselect it. Please fix.

            • 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.

              • New posts to Yahoo! Groups are taking a long time to appear

                This problem comes and goes. Sometimes a new post appears in the group immediately. Other times, it takes a very long time to appear. This was actually one of the problems in Yahoo! Groups that pre-dates the Neo interface. Neo was supposedly introduced to keep this from happening. This is not the case. The problem continues.

                  I cannot join any group. The message is still the same:

                    • Unable to edit Scheduled messages

                      I have a number of scheduled messages for the group that I own/moderate ... on joining, on leaving, on being banned, etc. Some of those messages need to be edited/updated, but when I click on the pencil I only have the ability to change the schedule/frequency, not edit the message itself. AND the messages no longer appear in our group FILES. I cannot find ANY access to them anywhere. So how do I edit them? I'm beyond annoyed and exhausted with all the problems since NEO was rolled out.

                      • Events - can´t get access to some of my groups

                        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.

                        • "Browse Groups" not available or not functional on many national versions

                          First the result from my own country (Canada) coming in from a Canadian IP.

                          https://ca.groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir

                          sends me to "Product Tour", not the expected groups directory. There is no "Browse Groups" for the Canadian English version.

                          The French page gives an equivalent of "Browse Groups" ( Parcourir les groupes ) but that links to page with no results.

                          https://fr.groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir

                          Links from the "À propos du groupe" page give similar empty results.

                          Spot checking other national pages has consistently given similar results.

                          Please fix as soon as possible. This bug will affect your advertising revenue adversely.

                          Thanks.

                            • Clicking back takes me back to the top of the previous page, not where I was.

                              This is not 1990. When I click on a link on almost any other webpage on the internet, and then click the "back" button, I am returned to exactly where I was on the previous page. But not here. Here I am returned to the top of the previous page, forcing me to scroll back down and try to find where I was. Incredibly annoying, moreso since it used to work properly. Before the "improvements".

                                • Message Formatting AGAIN

                                  I brought this up on Aug. 14, and it was marked as completed on Aug. 20th, after being ranked 9th. The problem is NOT solved.

                                  The Problem here is that with the new NEO format, on both the mobile version AND the desktop version, any message typed into the form provided on the Yahoo! website will have its paragraph breaks deleted when the message is posted.

                                  Sometimes only some breaks are deleted, sometimes all of them are deleted - generating a big lump of unreadable text from greeting to signature.

                                  The point of the forum is communication. This new system…

                                  • 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...)

                                      • Yahoo groups is now clunky and slow. I doing wrong

                                        Is the problem that I'm on Windows 7? Maybe my browser is not current?

                                        What is the optimum system for Yahoo? What system were the programmers using when they looked at this and said, "Yes this works better that the old system."
