  1. There is always error "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" when try to join yahoo groups

    There is always error "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" when try to join yahoo groups

    Even when I enter always changing long Captcha right for several times.

    Please create easiness in joining yahoo groups. You can start by delete or eliminate the Captcha requirement when joining a group. And make it automatic & simple (like in Google group) if we want to join yahoo groups.

    Thank you very much.

        • 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.

                  • 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.

                              • 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.

                                    • I am having problems with member records disappearing from the database. I can't find any other way to contact you about it.

                                      member records are disappearing from the database randomly. This has been happening for the last 3-4 weeks. HELP!!

                                      • 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."
