    • Fix help - it is useless.

      I have a problem logging on to a forum that I belong to, but I keep getting the following message when I log on:

      "Cannot process this "GET" request".

      Help is of no use, since it only allows one to raise known issues addressed in the feedback recipes, with no way to contact someone in order to raise problems outside the scope of the pre-determined issues.

      I am logged on, though, and can access my mail, but if I want to go anywhere else it tells me I first need to log on.

      I also note from the exasperation of…

      • What is wrong with our Groups Home? Nothing is working and it is a mess.

        Please fix our Groups Home / Start page that Lists all of our Groups. It is a mess at this time and has been for 3 days. Thank You.

        • Group Error Message in Groups Reported by Both Current and Pending Members When Trying to Join Groups, both Mine and Others.

          Some of my pending members have reported getting a "sorry an unknown error occurred while processing the request" when they've tried to join both my group and other groups. Please look into the issue, fix it, or find some way to ensure that it doesn't occur again in the future.

                • Is there any way we can rescue this site from the grips of the **** spammers?

                  Can the site be renamed and a new one started taking with the old one selected members only?

                  • Yahoo, are you reading our suggestions at all ?

                    Dear yahoo developers.

                    You have asked us back in 2013 to come over here with the technical problems, bugs, and our suggestions. For a while, you were answering and at least trying.
                    As of now, we havent heard from you for over a year.
                    No feedback, no answers, no topic getting on the "PLANNED" agenda, nothing !

                    Are you still here or have you all been fired?
                    Is Yahoo trying to fix the bugs at all?

                    We moderators and group members have been listing the major problems we have been encountering for over two years now. Some have been dealt…

                    • Concerned that I will not be able to use groups

                      I understand the need for security online (and elsewhere). However I am concerned about the requests for a mobile number. Today when I clicked on not providing same now, it told me I had to. I clicked again and it did not tell me so again.

                      Believe it or not, not everyone has a cell phone. I have no need for one and do not have one. I am concerned that one day I will be refused access to my yahoo account as I can not provide a cell phone number.

                      • Receiving spam from multiple groups.

                        I have never signed up for any Yahoo Group but I am received spam from multiple groups. Please tell me how to resign from Yahoo Groups. I can't log in to do this because I've never created a login, so I don't know how to get in and change settings, preferences, etc. Is there a way to just resign from Groups, or select to not receive any emails from any groups without logging in?

                            I've changed my email address in my profile to mike.white.ie@gmail.com, but "updates in your groups" messages still go to my old (unwanted) email address at michaelwhite@eircom.net. All routine group messages from all my subscribed groups are properly directed! The group name below is the latest example of misdirection.

                                    I am curious as to how my private yahoo group file ended up being publicly searchable. I have read the comments in Yahoo Answers and all you do is say that you will take the file down, but there is no explanation as to how the file was made public in the first place. I am now very skeptical about posting anything secure in the group. Please let me know how and why yahoo makes private files public. Thank you.

                                    The file I need deleted asap is http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/25345313/794199837/name/Three

                                    • Somehow our group owner was deleted because of inactivity; there is no way to add new moderators and no way to contact Yahoo staff directly!

                                      How about a link to an actual helpdesk email?

                                      BTW, Y!Groups has been getting worse on a regular basis. Almost unusable IMO.

                                      • Owners died and I want to take the groups

                                        I had a friend who died of diabetes and her husband moved on an left the net and doesn't want anything to do with her groups is the last and final msg i got. I have no address to get in touch. I would love to take over her groups and have them keep running. But at this point there are a few people who are spamming her group. All groups where there is no owner any more should be shut down or let someone else take over

                                        • actually unscubscribe me when i hit unsubscribe in my email.

                                          I have been asked to be unsubscribed for the past month. I have continued to get emails. I have hit unsubscribe from email multiple times but I keep received emails from you and I no longer want them.
