  1. Fix the scroll function

    Again I ask that the scroll function be repaired so that people can scroll down through ALL messages without being shunted back to the top. Your message board is frustrating to use and as a result my desire to be here is very limited. Pity, because I really need the help offered by the group I am trying to use for a serious health issue. Come on, people, this is the 21st century. We have the technology to accomplish this very simple thing.

  3. Bring back the option to schedule Files to auto-send to pending members

    When scheduling Files, the option to auto-send a File to a pending member is no longer available. There used to be a scheduling option labelled "Pending Subscriptions".

    And if a group had previously setup Files to be sent to pending member, the Management > Control Panel > Notifications page does show a section for Files that are sent on "Pending Subscriptions" BUT these Files are never sent to people who have pending subscriptions.

    A lot of groups depend on this feature because they require pending members to read and reply to auto-sent Files. And because the Notifications page says that…

  4. Please fix the ability to remove members.

    It is currently not possible to remove members from the groups or to remove banned members from the banned list. Please fix this as a matter of urgency. Attempts to remove give an error loading content and the member remains on the group.

  6. Please do not truncate or shorten the subject heading of group messages as it appears on the conversation view.

    Please do not truncate or shorten the subject heading of group messages as it appears on the conversation view. It defeats the purpose of a public message.

  7. 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.

  8. Our reminders are coming out with a completely wrong time from the actual times of the events in the calendar, which is causing confusion.

    Our reminders are coming out with a completely different time for the events than what is in the calendar-it is just randomly making up times! This is causing mush confusion. Please Fix!

  9. NO Mail Coming Through To Our Group

    We too are having an issue with emails being posted to our list. We have over 5000 members and it's so important for us to be able to respond. Nothing has gone through for a couple of days now from most of us. Nothing is showing up on the homepage either. We are a kidney list for dogs and we need to be able to help our members daily! Please Yahoo.....fix this problem! At the very least, respond to us and tell us what is going on or what is being done to resolve this!

  13. Replies to Yahoo Groups puts 'garbage' in plain text alterative

    This is a bug in how Yahoo Mail sends replies to messages sent by Yahoo Groups. The bug is on the Yahoo Mail side. Presumably it could happen when encountering other data as well.

    This bug happens when replying using Yahoo Mail (full featured) to a Yahoo Groups message. It appears to be caused when objects of the Yahoo Groups footer are encountered when sending replies.

    These objects are stripped out of the HTML alternative. (That is good.)

    However, the "Style" information that presumably belongs at the end of HTML alternative is added to the end of the Plain Text…

  14. "Join group" not working today - Purple error bar "Sorry, an error occurred.." message

    "Join group" isn't working today - Purple error bar "Sorry, an error occurred.." appears when applicants try to join or try to accept a pre-approved invite to join a group. I've received multiple complaints about this today and hoping you can help resolve. It's happening in all our many groups. Thanks!

  15. Events calendar is back but . . . . reminder delivery is not.

    Events Calendar has been glitching since you introduced the "You must choose at least one delivery option" with the two tick-boxes for E-Mail and Yahoo Messenger.

    I wondered why our group was no longer getting Events reminders. Yahoo has wiped all my settings to deliver via E-mail, and will only accept a tick for delivery via Yahoo Messenger.

    Since not all our members have Yahoo messenger, E-mail is the best option, but seems no longer allowed.

    Could you PLEASE go back to Reminders as they were -- no need to tick delivery options. If we are marking Reminders, obviously we…

  16. Not able to load photos change homepage banners and error messages when loading files as well

    Yahoo........why does this keep happening? We are dealing with serious health issues for dogs and we rely strongly on members being able to load files and the "error has occured" keeps coming up. Sometimes refreshing the page shows the file as being there. Not able to load any photos nor change the banner on the homepage either. Being a moderator doesn't help us change any of this.This is a list of over 5000 members and we have been here 18 years. The lack of support from yahoo is getting frustrating and we are forced to look at other options but…

  17. "Activity log" no longer working

    It looks like the Activity log (at least for Membership; since after Oct.2018?) is no longer being updated ?

    Is this something specific to our account, or more general ?

  19. Yahoo! Groups Emails go to SPAM / BULK folders in Yahoo! Mail - Please fix

    Hi! Recently, many of our members are not receiving their individual posts or digests, only to later find them in SPAM. Especially when their email client is Yahoo!. Can you fix this? Seems silly that they are required to have a Yahoo! account to join a Yahoo! Group but then your own Mail system places emails from groups in to SPAM. This has increased recently to the point where people think they've been removed from the group because they aren't getting ANY mail in their inboxes. Thank you!

  20. 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…
