  1. Directory is broken

    Why are groups which are NOT in the adult section disappearing from the directory? I am a member of several advice groups, all in the NON-adult section of Romance & Relationships. Among them are

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Relationship-Talk/info

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/realadviceforreallove/info

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/whatdomenwantanyways2/info

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/whatdomenwantanyways2/info

    and my own group,

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/AdviceforLivingandLoving/info

    No one can find us, and all of the above except for my own group have had little or no activity since this started. Can we get these groups back into the directory?

    Again, these are NOT in the adult section of Romance & Relationships.

  3. Files sections appear to be down 2-2018. I cannot access files in some of my groups.

    I am the owner of some groups. While conversations are visible, files are not. Nothing is visible, just a blank section where the files and controls should be. Some other groups still have functioning files sections, but the ones I own do not.

  4. restricted to public

    When I set up my groups they were classified as custom. I did not choose restricted or private. But now they are all marked as restricted by you not by me. I am unable to change them to public. Is this because I want to moderate who joins my groups? You need to let us have more control over this. Please advise. Thanks.

  5. Bring back profiles and other search features!

    E-groups and yahoo groups (which later became one) were so good for meeting new people and talking about shared interests years ago. One of the most missed features is profiles and being able to see who was online so you could then have a live chat (I miss chat rooms too) on messenger.

    Groups are much less social now. I want to find people with common interests by keywords and location and see who's online, and who's profiles are the most active or most recently active. I miss profiles like they were about 10 years ago.

  6. 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…

  7. 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,

  8. 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.

  9. Better headers needed

    Yahoogroups should change the mail headers in group-mail distributions, so that recipients can determine the original sender of the mail. This is especially problematic for iPad2 native mail which rips out the descriptive part of the sender and just leaves the group's mail address.

  11. Search exact user ID as typed; don't substitute another format of that ID

    When searching conversations using a non-broken name format, e.g. "FirstnameLastnameNumber", the reply shows results for "Firstname Lastname Number" (broken into sections). It then says "search instead for 'FirstnameLastnameNumber'" which is what I had actually searched for in the first place!! Give me results for what I typed in and don't presume to substitute another format for what I input.

  12. You can start by dealing with the filth and **** on non- adult sites.

    You screwed up just by not excepting the start of my suggestion, wich tells me you are still being dishonest. To fix most group **** in non-adult groups would be to replace bouncing owners with another moderator who can deal with the problems.

  14. NON-adult groups disappearing from the directory

    Here is a list of yahoo advice groups, and the categories in which they should appear. (I clicked the category button on the info page for each group.) As you can see, all said categories are blank, NO groups appear in them.

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/AdviceforLivingandLoving/info

    should be here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir/1600086919

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Relationship-Talk/info

    should be here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir/1600088114

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/realadviceforreallove/info

    should be here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir/1600088114

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/whatdomenwantanyways2/info

    should be here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir/1600086919

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/longdistancelove_online/info

    should be here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/dir/1600579922

    In other words, the following categories are all empty, even though groups to which I belong do exist in those categories:

    All /Romance & Relationships /Advice
    All…

  15. Please fix the yahoogroups calendar!

    Please fix the reminders in the calendar. No matter how many times I save the reminders, it doesn't actually save. I can edit the calendar entry 20 times, but it never "sticks". We haven't had a reminder sent out in almost 2 months.

  17. Can't view photos within groups, please fix

    Can't see or view photos within any group. This problem needs to be addressed promptly my group pays for extra storage for our site and we can't view photos. If not fixed you could start to see a reduction or deletion of revenue.....
