  1. Improve workflow for unmoderating members in "Moderated for new members" groups

    To help prevent spam, many groups are set to "Moderated for new members". But when members show they are real and do a good post, it is a lot of work to unmoderate them.

    When moderating posts on a "Moderated for new members" group, it would be a HUGE workflow improvement if there was a single click option to approve a post and at the same time switch that member to "Default Group Policy"

    Otherwise as you approve moderated posts, you need to perform 8 steps to switch them and then get to the next post to approve.

  2. Group Search

    Group Search

    Suggest that someone please make a decision. . . . !
    You have tried to fix the search engine now for 2 years after " NEO " screwed it up. IT is not fixed . . . . BUT . . . is getting Worse.

    Suggestions::
    1) Scrap it and start all over again.
    2) Scrap it and use Google's.

    It really is a shame because the Y! search engine was the model search program I started using in 1997/ 98. It steadily improved until MARCH 2013.

    It is a lot easier to search the Yahoo data base…

  3. give us back the Direct Add for new members!

    Even a very limited version (one or two a day) would be better than none. BTW, the Invite function is virtually useless.

  4. I found "customer care" totally unhelpful. No replies to my question in Community. And "contact us" doesn't let me contact an actual person.

    The "Contact us" icon shows a picture of a woman with a headset, implying that there is an actual person waiting to help us. Instead, there is just a chain of options, none of which addressed my actual issue, which leads to a dead-end with nowhere else to turn for help. I posted on Community but no replies, probably because my issue is rather unusual. I need someone to access my computer remotely to see what the problem is.

  5. Make moderators owners if they are the only part of management left.

    Need some help, as 2 of the owners recently passed. The third was hacked while traveling abroad and can't get back in to manage the group. I have limited ability or power as the only moderator left. If I could make her new email, the owner I would. This would solve the problem as she can then make others owners and more moderators.

  6. Alllow us to MODERATE postings again... PLEASE!!!!

    You have removed the ability to MODERATE posts. That means that we again have people posting OFF-TOPIC messages and SPAM.

    The whole point of a MODERATED GROUP is to be able to MODERATE it!

  7. Your Customer Care Service Needs Fixed

    Wherever it is located to be able to provide you with an email about an issue it needs to be shown in a 'very' obvious place. I get a pull down menu with your 800 number that every time I have called I have been disconnected :( I click online assistance and it does not address the problem and there is no icon to allow for sending an email for assistance.

  9. my groups

    I cannot find my groups anymore. I am in at least 4 or 5 of them but can only connect to one of them now. What happened to My Groups Page? Where can I get to all my groups from one place?

  11. Promotion of Members to Moderator or Owner not working

    I am not sure if this is related to the recent changes in Yahoo Groups, but I am noticing that while I am able to promote someone who is in an existing Moderator role to Owner, I have been unable to promote anyone from the Member role to either Moderator or Owner.

    I have attempted these changes on several group members in multiple groups which I own and moderater, with identical results in each group.

    When I attempt to do so, I am receiving an error message:

    Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content.

  13. Moderation commands ???

    You destroyed all the moderation commands at the same time as what made groups interesting.
    Today if you do not restore them, my 6 moderate groups are dead .... (more than 4400 members)
    In addition you do not read your "help" section where hundreds of moderators have already pointed it out to you and ask for help!

  15. Get the ads out of our message posts on the groups pg. Let the admins turn this stuff off. You are ruining what was a very effective tool

    The new Yahoo groups is pathetic. Come on folks, there are thousands of users and most of us are sick of the new promote. These are not improvements. I have heard multiple complaints about the new interface. This is not progress. Stop trying to be like Google and go back to the prior code. If you want to upgrade, any decent bunch of engineers can port the software to new hardware and maintain the capability. Do not list YOUR ads within our messages. Give us the option to turn off the ads. You can make $ in other ways.

  16. Make it easier to get to "Groups," both on PC and definitely on mobile devices.

    "Groups" used to appear on the mini-nav bar at the top of the Yahoo Home page. Now I have to click "more" and find it in a list of tons of other products. It is virtually impossible to find Groups on my mobile phone.

  17. Allow group owners to change members email addresses

    Neither me as owner nor members can edit their email addresses within the groups. The "Edit" box will not allow alterations. People do change email addresses from time to time. At least allow the group owner to do this.
