  1. Load faster

    Yahoo groups frequently gets hung up on "fetching sponsored content." I don't mind seeing ads in the groups, it's a small price to pay for the service, unless I have to wait a minute while some clunky ad that takes up a lot of time loads on my computer.
    You people don't seem to understand that not everyone has the lightning fast service that is enjoyed in large metropolitan areas or wherever your marketing and product development people reside.

    • 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.

      • Restore delete function to database

        Use groups for weekly golf group signup. (Desert Eagles at Pebble Creek). Over last few days have lost ability to delete rows from database. Cannot not delete records of those who signed up and now cannot play. Use same tables changing dates into future. Usually can delete those from current week to prep for future weeks. Not now.
        Help!!

          • 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.

              • yahoo groups don't function

                I keep TRYING to post in a freecycle group. Only I can't. This is why I usually just delete messages. Any links in any post won't work unless I right click and open in a new window. The "reply" to a post does NOTHING. Of course anyones email is hidden as it should be but that leaves me with no way possible to use the group. Tried to post a new topic. I can get the title in there, but then when I go to the text field, NOTHING will type.

                Yahoo groups are useless to me. And I have…

                • The current Yahoo Events Calendar is garbage.

                  The old calendar worked fine. Problems began after you changed it a while back. Calendar shows incorrect dates/times even when personal calendar is set correctly. Changes to correct don't last. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. You've fixed the fixed the calendar and now it' broke.

                  • Yahoo groups is a very unstable, clunky application on I-Pad

                    The screen is prone to freeze-ups, and the controls otherwise will not reliably respond, requiring the user to try to back out of the page and re-enter to make it work, sometimes losing the typing that was about to be inputted. Yahoo groups neo has reverted to 1990s performance.

(It's just a notice of who is that month's secretary.) The e-mails for Feb 1st and March 1st were not sent. January's was sent. The Feb and March events had been modified from the original repeating event to a 1-time event with the name of the secretary in the event title. According to the user interface, an e-mail reminder should be sent 1 day in advance, but nothing was ever sent. The reminder does not show up in…

                              • Bring back the missing "add new email" link in Yahoo Groups Membership Settings

                                One of my group's members needs to change his personal email address in the Yahoo Group I created and moderate, but the "add new email" link no longer appears when he clicks his edit Identity Settings link in his membership profile. I just checked, and I also can no longer see that link. What's happened to it, and how do people change old obsolete email address to their new current ones?

                                  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.

                                      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.

                                      • Stop truncating short message titles in conversations window

                                        All message titles are truncated indiscriminately in the message list regardless of their length so it is very hard to make out the titles. For example a short title like 'Off duty' is truncated to 'Off d...' which is confusing and unhelpful and doesn't actually save any space. Please only truncate long titles that are over a certain length and keep shorter ones intact.

                                        • 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.
