  1. You Eliminated comments forums in 90% of articles! Limited hosting, why come here?

    AS A YAHOO USER, we feel we haven't been listened to at all by you guys. I saw this morning that Yahoo stock took a big hit, please LISTEN to your users and know WHY.

    Yahoo has been arrogant and unapologetic. We have tried to tell you the new site format was a disaster, for good reason... you have taken away the COMMENTS threads from about 90% of the articles... you don't even HOST a reposting anymore, you just host one paragraph with a "read more" button that redirects us to an external site. So what do YOU offer US,…

  2. No way to mark messages as spam

    There needs to be a way to mark as SPAM messages that get through as valid messages when the group is setup to not have a moderator approving messages.

  3. Where is the post I just wrote? I would like to see a log of all the posts I have made or tried to make to the groups I belong to.

    Where is the post I just wrote?

    I would like to see a log of all the posts I have made or tried to make to the groups I belong to. If I submit via email, I will have this record. However, if I submit on the web interface, my record of the post is gone.

  4. Download a whole photos file at once

    One thing that would be useful is if we could download a whole Yahoo Groups photos file in one go, instead of having to do each photo individually.

  6. Ability to Sort Groups by geographic location

    It would seem to me like it would be a good idea to have the ability to sort thru groups by geographic location (ie. find what groups are local to you). No?

  7. Increase the number of groups listed on the left navigation pane of the Groups Home page

    It would be nice to control how many groups are listed on the left navigation pane instead of being restricted to 10. I don't need 150, but 20 would be nice and allowing the user to change it to their likings might be useful too.

  8. Please enable a way to search terms in all groups, instead of just searching for group names

    Please, it helps for research to be able to have a broad term search across all of Yahoo Groups. If I look up specific events for research purposes, I have to find groups that may/may not have the information I am looking for. It would be much easier for me to have an advanced search through all groups. Please consider this.

  11. Make file upload notifications disabled as default

    It makes more sense to choose that you WANT a notification sent upon uploading a file, not having to remember to uncheck a box because you don't.

    Anybody else always forget this and annoy the heck out of group members?

    If I forget to notify, I can always send a message to the group saying, "hey - I uploaded a file" with a link to it rather than, "oops, sorry you just got a bunch of notifications you didn't need to know about"

  12. Is it possible to change subject headers

    Im managing a discussion group where participants discuss on several subjects at the time. I've introduced several subjects for more focussed and structrued discussions. In retrospect, for better overview of the list of subjects, I would like to change some of the subjet headers. is this possible? If not, this would be a suggestion for improvement. thanks

  14. Add the ability to create a signature to use on posts.

    Currently if you write a message quickly, particularly a reply to another topic, it is difficult for the original poster to know who is replying. If we could add our name (and in our case our Amateur Radio Callsign) to the end of every post, it would save time and ensure our posts are identifiable.

  16. Allows us to fix typos in posts,

    If Facebook allows me to fix typos in posts, why cannot Yahoo offer the same?

  17. When I tap on the push notifications why it's is not taking me to that particular mail?

    When I tap on the push notifications why it's is not taking me to that particular mail? Instead it's just opening an Application.

    It will be more comfortable when we can navigate to the particular mail directory from the push notifications, like other applications do...

  18. Add some settings (at the gear icon) that we can actually set?

    At the gear icon (an icon typically used to indicate "settings") the only options are "Help" or "Suggestions". This is odd.

    I suggest one of the following:

    A) Add the ability to change some settings to this menu (more on this below), or

    B) Change the gear icon to something else - say, to a circle with a question mark in the middle - anything that more intuitively indicates "Help" and not "Settings" or "Preferences". Even having the words "Help" and/or "Suggestions" would be better than the gear icon.

    Regarding option A), one setting that I'd really like to be…

  19. When pics/images are included in posts.

    Make it possible by 'clicking' somewhere in or near a pic/image, to easily advance to the next pic, instead of having to open a pic, view it, then close it, then go back to the list of pics and opening the next one...etc.
