        • Unable to upload files

          When I try to upload files to the Files section of the groups, I get a purple bar that reads, "An error occurred when trying to upload this content." This has happened on and off for months. What is the error, exactly? The files are not too large, and there's plenty of space on the groups. This time I waited 24 hours before trying again, but the problem is still there. This is very annoying.

          Similarly, on and off I get an error when trying to delete files. Why hasn't this been fixed?

          The problems exist in both Firefox and…

            • Photos and files will not load.

              Photos are not loading in the groups. It sticks on the page where it shows it is loading and does nothing. I have tried on numerous groups with the same result. This also seems to be happening with loading files.
              Please get this fixed ASAP since a lot of groups, including mine are very dependent on photos. Thank you,

                  • I can't upload photos to my Yahoo Group

                    I'm the same. The whole purpose of my group's existence relies on regular new photo posts but as of September 30th 2016 this has not been possible. I've tried, but it keeps failing and retrying, failing and retrying, failing and retrying etc. It won't stop until I literally press cancel. Then no photo has posted at all. I can't even post on anybody else's group, never mind my own.

                    I can usually post photos with no trouble at all and this is the first time it has happened. Whilst searching the internet for answers, I find no attempt has been…

                          The Groups system is a shambles. Messages are taking up ro 5 days to post. What is going on? It was so much better in the past.We have used it for almost 14 years. Also, Yahoo has the worst customer support sysatem I have ever seen. Your support people are hiding behind a brick wall!!! No way ro contact a "live person"!

                                    • Give us the ability to opt out of yahoo groups!

                                      I do not wish to be part of yahoo groups, i would like to opt out and think this needs to be an added option! Please remove me from groups ASAP or I will delete my yahoo account entirely and move to another email service. This spam mail is ridiculous, it's been frequently complained about it seems, and I've never even looked at any groups much less signed up for any emails. Yet here i am being flooded with emails about erectile disfunction, ***** enhancement, etc. Nothing i have tried has stopped the emails!

                                      • Get to work on the delays to distribution of Yahoo! Groups messages

                                        You need to fix the persistent problem of delayed distribution of Yahoo! Groups messages. Recent delays have been DOCUMENTED at up to 24 hours...and the full headers confirm that the delay is WITHIN YAHOO!.

                                        There is no reason for this kind of INTERNAL SCREWUP within Yahoo! unless the company has been so lax on maintaining and operating its own systems that it is failing its basic tasks; and that would only be a reason...NOT AN EXCUSE.

                                          Is there anyone monitoring these posts? A number of users have posted they are having the same problem. When can we expect to see the problem resolved?
