  1. delete full folder

    I would like to be able to delete a full folder without having to go in and delete each file in the folder individually first. It is very time consuming to do it this way. As owner of the group and folder I would like to be able to delete the full folder.

    • Will Yahoo Groups Survive?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I've heard Yahoo is getting rid of things like Food, Travel, and others, will Yahoo Groups survive? I've been here since 2007 and I don't want to leave and I don't want Yahoo Groups to disappear.

      • Allow Polls to be created on MOBILE devices

        You cannot create a Poll in a group from an IPHONE or IPAD. Please allow Groups to be completely mobile compatible. 65% of our group uses a mobile device and expects Yahoo! groups to be as easy to use as facebook groups. There are little things and glitches like this on the yahoo! mobile versions that really limit a user's experience and create frustration for group owners. please fix.

          • Please Upgrade to the previous version of groups.

            This Neo garbage is totally worthless and is killing our forums. No one visits them anymore and no new members ever show up anymore. Groups are now completely dysfunctional and is driving everyone to Facebook groups. :(
            Please roll back to the working version and fire the neophytes that created this disaster.

            • The current "Ellen Degeneres" ad is DISGUSTING! We need the ability to report offensive ads.

              I don't mind Yahoo offering advertisements, but the one of a woman supposed to be Ellen Degeneres crying, is DISGUSTING! and OFFENSIVE! and we need a way to give feedback to Yahoo when an ad is obvious lies or obviously offensive to humanity.

              The woman in the ad is NOT Ellen Degeneres, in spite of the fact that they found someone who could be made to look much like Ellen. I find the ad INSULTING and DISGUSTING... and I will not click to follow it even to complain to them as they don't give a flip about the people looking…

                  • Database - search (+ special letters)

                    It seems like the search possibility in the Database not are working. I was planning to fix some of the errors in the table myself, but it didn´t work for any search.
                    I have waited about 2-3 years for that the issue with special letters should be fixed, and it seems like it is - more or less - but still in our Database there are some issue. (This problem started long before NEO in another update).
                    I thought I should fix it myself and tried to seach the letter -ř - to change it to the correct one. This…

                    • Every time I go to my yahoo groups sites, I have to reselect the "slim" view that shows all the posts in a group.

                      If I select the "slim view" at my group site, I would like it to remain on slim view until I change it. Every time I go to my sites, the "slim" view is gone. I select it for one site and it disappears as soon as I go to another group site. How can I make it stay on "slim view" for my conversations?

                      • The world is in desperate need of an app for Yahoo Groups! PLEASE HURRY!

                        A user friendly interface that lets you post, view posts (including access to files) and notifies you of updates on the group would be incredibly useful. My school uses the service to post assignments and notices very frequently. The app would certainly make things a lot easier for everyone! Hoping to see some speedy deliverance! :)

                                • there are no returns in the text files created in the files section

                                  When creating a new document in the files section, a .txt file is created, but the hard returns that appear when entering the text, disappear once the file is saved.

                                  This prevents members from reading the files: lines are hundreds of signs long, and the editing disappears.

                                    We have a small prayer group, and SINCE 2001 - our group has shared new Daily Devotions every month! In times past, we were able to "edit" the times when we wanted our Daily Devotions files to be shared with members. For example, during September and October, we would like to share the September and October files with members every two weeks, plus once a month. HOWEVER, once September and October had passed - in times past, we were able to EDIT the schedule for releasing the files and move on to November and December. We would no longer need…

                                    • Sort the Files, Links and Photos alphabetically, so members can find things.

                                      Sort the Files, Links and Photos alphabetically, so members can find things. New members and members who aren't web- or computer-savvy don't find the sort order option under Actions, and constantly ask for help finding things they've been referred to. Even if they figure out how to change the sort to alpha, it keeps changing back. This is the kind of thing that's reduced our active membership to a small fraction of what it was before the Neo-Groups disaster.

                                      • Stop censoring groups

                                        Still waiting for Yahoo to stop censoring groups. You people continually force homosexuality on us, yet Yahoo! acts like some kind of freaking moral police with the groups. If I can't have any freedom on Yahoo!, then I don't want to see your depraved deviant homosexuality. Is that not fair?

                                        • New My Yahoo vs deletion of My Groups from e-mail page

                                          I really like the new "My Yahoo" page -- cleaner layout, very easy to find my groups. navigate to email, etc.

                                          On any given Group page, I still have the helpful left sidebar listing all my groups. (This was a great innovation -- I participate more often in all my groups!)

                                          HOWEVER, once I am inside my e-mail account, both "Groups" and "My Yahoo" appear to have been deleted from the top banner task bar. I can find no way on my e-mail page to navigate back to MyYahoo or to my Groups.

                                          The new MyYahoo page is such a…
