  2. It would be nice to search messages in a group for a specific topic or word.

    It would be nice to search messages in a group. Right now all we can do is search for groups. But, once we are in a group, we can't search the messages for a specific key word or topic.

  3. Better Ad Filter

    I understand that you feel ads are necessary, but you need to enhance (or create if there isn't already one) the filter used to display ads. Our group, a Boy Scout troop, had an ad displayed for a mature dating site. This is completely inappropriate and potentially damaging to our troop's reputation if parents were to see such ads displayed, even if it's understood that we have no control over what's displayed.

  4. Unwanted Enlargement (Viagra) & Canadien Pharmacy Messages etc.

    We are recieving way too many Viagra etc. type messages. Can you make a way where we can inhibit the source from sending subsequent messages to our group. We need to keep posting open to non-members and cannot moderate all messages because pertinent messages are usually time sensative. When a Spam type message sneaks through we would like the ability to ban the source.

  5. Improve look and feel

    Yahoo groups is a great and useful tool. The old look and feel was very user friendly but it was not so good looking. Then some idiot redesigned the site to make it look better, which he did quite well, but at the same time, he screwed up the user friendliness. Please fix it asap, else yahoogroups will be over run by others and I will also have to migrate my groups to google groups. I am trying to locate the group members in my group on my iphone browser, but this stupid redisned look and feel does not give…

  7. Please include YEAR in post dates

    Posts in groups I belong to have the date and time of day of the posting. However, the date does not include the year. However, when a new post has the same title as an old thread, Yahoo! Groups considers it an addition to the thread. This causes a lot of confusion because the year of each post is not shown.

    1. Please have the display include the year of each post!

    2. Wouldn't it make sense for a thread to be continued only if an answer replies to a former post in that thread, not just because the title…

  10. Set the time of day for daily digest receipt

    Why do the daily digests come in at 3 AM. It wakes me up. I need my phone on for things that I actually have to respond to in the middle of the night, but the daily digest isn't one of them.

  11. Issue of approving applicants

    Hi,

    I run two groups in Yahoo the Stay Dry Bedwetting group https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/staydry/ establishes in 8-2005 and staydry-discussion : StayDry Bedwetting Parent Discussion Grp http://groups.yahoo.com/group/staydry-discussion/

    I have a hard time approving members because I cannot see applicants profile to see if the meet group policy . So I have to have them copy their profile and email it to me to see if they are complying. However, most don’t either they don’t want to or don’t know how to send it to me. So since the change in Yahoo I have approved very few members.

    Moderators should at least have…

  13. Improvements you can make

    1. Fix the Files section so that it's readable. Right now, when viewing text files, the words are scrunched together because your site has problems reading spaces. This makes the text files virtually unusable, and if you don't want to fix it, then don't have the function.
    2. Fix the Files section so that you are able to view text files without having to download them, like before.
    3. Fix the database section so that the database doesn't get deleted (or log you out) whenever you edit it.
    4. Fix the database section so that you don't make duplicate entries…

  18. Group calendar needs "send reminder now" option

    This is an "enhancement" to compensate for a serious problem. Our group calendar repeatedly fails to send event reminders, and our only calendar option is to wait for the next available pre-programmed reminder time. For many years our members have received weekly reminders 2 days in advance, and when that reminder isn't sent on time, we should be able to push it out immediately, rather than wait another day to find out whether or not THAT reminder will work or put in even more manual labor to send a regular email notice.

  19. Hi, I run a 1700+ member group on yahoogroups and after several efforts at monetizing it to sustain the effort, found that I needed a websit

    Add functionality for each yahoogroup to have a website where ads can be posted, group blogs can be run, the group can see the calendar of events in one view - This will bring Yahoo a lot of money from group admins that want to monetize their yahoogroup. Yahoo can sell domain links and the website functionality as well. With the stickiness Yahoogroups create, its only the next best addition the Yahoo team can make to Yahoogroups. Check out www.newportmommy.com for seeing what yahoogroups that need to monetize are resorting to - you are throwing your money to competitors in…

  20. Allow us to download archive messages and export more than 1000 members

    I have been running a large listserv on yahoogroups for 11 years. The group is important for a lot of reasons. A lot of the communication can be used as a resource for my colleagues. Therefore the ability to download the archived messages to safe keeping and to create FAQs and other resources is important. Furthermore I have 1725 members and would have piece of mind to be able to occasionally export the list for safe keeping and statistic purposes.
