  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. Our Yahoo Group (BCCSENIORS) is not receiving emails from anyone in our group. How to fix that?

    I am the moderator of our Yahoo Group (BCCSENIORS). Since yesterday, our group is not receiving emails from anyone in our group. Consequently, no one is being notified about information about our group. How do I fix that?

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Cannot Correct the Time Zone Selection

    I cannot correct the Time Zone setting for my mail nor my Group. Even when I select my correct TZ from the dropdown list, it still shows GMT for my Time Zone, and all items (such as Group Events) show oddball times (which probably would be correct if I lived in England, but I don't). Several other members of my Group report the same TZ bug, and the bug appears for IE, Firefox and Chrome browsers.

  8. Cannot edit calendar events

    All of a sudden, No one can edit or delete the calendar events. I cannot edit or delete the Yahoo Group events / calendar even though I'm the owner of the group. I already tried changing the access to allow all members to view or edit the events AND it is still not working.

    Please fix this defect / bug.

  9. Attachments are not showing up at all, along with the photos not working.

    Attachments, Photos, Message History, activity log, and many more items are in need of fixing. If you don't want the groups then take them down so we can move on to something else that CARES about their customers

  10. delete full folder

    I would like to be able to delete a full folder without having to go in and delete each file in the folder individually first. It is very time consuming to do it this way. As owner of the group and folder I would like to be able to delete the full folder.

  11. 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.

  12. repair Events calendar

    Too many of my groups members cannot access the Events calendar. They see a message that the moderator has not enabled their account to access Events, but I cannot see anything wrong with their details, and I cannot see any way to fix it.

  13. PLEASE fix the broken calendar/events feature!

    I can hardly believe how badly broken the calendar/events features became in mid-summer... and still broken. Many of my groups don't show up as mergeable in calendar.yahoo.com, one of my groups won't let us into the calendar page at all, and another one shows September events but nothing for following months. This has been reported for months now and still it's hopelessly broken.

  14. Pending Messages Approved Via Web Not posting to Group (or delayed) + No email notification of pending post received

    In our groups it seems (as of a day or so ago) that posts that we approve via web are not posting immediately - if at all - to the group. Also to note is that we aren't getting moderator notifications in our email inboxes of these pending posts to be approved. Whereas the ones we receive email notifications for and which we approve via email are posting immediately. I hope this is helpful info to nail the glitch that may be causing this. Thank you for helping us keep Yahoo! Groups great and useful to so many.

  18. Would like to be able to pause and go back to previous photo when the photos are in the enlarged view.

    I believe that when you first introduced the enlarged view for our photos we could pause and also go back to the previous photos but that function seems to have disappeared. It is nice to be able to see the photos in the larger format but they scroll so fast that we don't get time to really enjoy the details of the photos. Can you make that happen for us..thanks

  19. 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.

  20. Attachments are not loading

    Attachments are not uploading properly and sometimes they don't show up at all. This has been going on for weeks now and I was wondering if you are doing anything about it or should I just leave Yahoo.
