  1. DATABASES STILL PROBLEMS after revamping

    I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

    Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

    However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

    1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

    example: I try to sort out…

  2. Bring back the old format for yahoo groups.

    Provide an option to select the old yahoo groups format. I've quit reading yahoo groups since the "new" version came out. It's a mess.

  3. Remove the requirement to identify as either male or female during account creation.

    I need software to manage committee calendars, agendas and minutes. I would use your software as it appears to be exactly what I need. However, your requirement to select male or female during account creation means I will have to look elsewhere. I sit on a committee dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of all genders. Forcing the committee members to identify as either male or female is exactly the kind of problem we are striving to fix. Please reconsider your use of binary genders, and allow each person to identify as they see fit. I would ask…

  5. 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…

  6. Needed: A searchable database with a graphics field; i.e., jpeg,, gif, etc.

    Presently the database fields allow text only. Since our sites are primarily visual and members upload many pictures, we need a field that will allow these graphics to be placed in the chart. Thanks.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  11. DECLINED! - Allow us to sort LINKS alphabetically; make alphabetical the LINK sort default.

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/6205141-allow-us-to-sort-links-alphabetically-make-alphab#comments

    Take this off of declined. The folders as someone posted in Neo were always sorted by alphabetical order - both the folders and the contents in the folders. Then you changed it back almost a year later to sorting by date only. Sorting by date is not able to be used when you have hundreds of links or files. Each time you locate one, as soon as you open it or change to another one it automatically goes back to being sorted by date! You cannot locate any one link or file when it is sorted by date. The…

  12. Moderator ability to see number of posts on group and sort features...

    I really would like to be able to see stats of members for the group in question. For example I want to click a name and see "Total Submissions", "Approved Posts" and "Denied Posts". If they could appear in the member listing then at a glance I would be able to know that if member JoeSchmoe has posted 47 messages and 45 were approved messages and 2 were denied messages then it would be a no brainer to make them not have to be moderated any longer.

    Then I want to be able to click a button and show only…

  13. 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.

  14. Add moderation setting so postings by all non-members must be approved first

    Please add a moderation setting to allow postings by all non-members of a Yahoo Group to be approved first - We use Yahoo groups for our committee but people who are not committee members need to be able to send a message to us collectively so we accept messages from non-members. Unfortunately we are now receiving a lot of spam that has made it through Yahoo's filters, so it would be really useful to be able to head that off before it reaches everyone's inboxes.

  16. 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.

    It would be great if we could bookmark a particular post to read or access again later. It woudl be even better if we could sort our bookmarks using labels.

  18. 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,…

  19. 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.

  20. Need Moderator Functions

    I moderate a group of non-techie senior citizens who can't manage setting up yahoo IDs, so they join our yahoogroup as email-only users. I need to be able to do the following as a moderator:
    - change a member's email address
    - add or change a display name for a member of the group
