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.
I have had this scrolling issue for months. Can you Yahoo techs please email me for detailed settings info I have and see if you can then reproduce the problem. Thanks
Listen to us!! Quit messing with what works. The present scroll function is NOT we want! We want to be able to scroll through the messages at our own leisure and NOT be thrown back to the top. It', a dumb idea, for what purpose dose this feature serve? Some techno-geeks image? Granted, there are some that like it the way it is so allow us the option to have or NOT to have this annoying scrolling feature. I'm not on FB that much but I think they have the same scrolling ****. Or would you all just rather us not even bother sign in to participate on your site? I guess we can just read the messages through our emails and not even bother with the Yahoo Groups. Is that what you guys at Yahoo want?
same question as the question about scrolling: it doesnt work and always returns us to the top if we clic on one message/photo/item
IF you cannot make us scroll down thousands of messages,
THEN REINSTATE the pages number for the following set of 50 messages, for instance !
this would be so simple
how do you stop this

I had voted on another listing of this issue - but Yahoo returned my votes saying they couldn't reproduce the problem!!! I want to scroll down through all of the messages, viewing them on the 'Conversations' page, and when I see a message topic that looks of interest, I want to click on it and view the content. The problem is that I can be scrolling down, see the message topics, and then as more messages are loaded the screen automatically jumps back up to message number 1, and I am placed back at the very top of the list of messages, so that I am looking at the newest messages over and over and over. Can't believe that Yahoo 'can't reproduce the problem' .... frustrating!!!!!
To the product support:
There are several messages relating to this issue. One of them is 6th on the "hot" list. Stop sweeping issues under the rug. Ignoring them only postpones the inevitable at this point ie the loss of members in groups who constantly request the moderators to move the groups somewhere else.
Scrolling within photo albums has the same problem.

I agree whole-heartedly with everything that's been posted on this issue. It is so incredibly frustrating! I use yahoo groups less and less frequently directly as a result of this terrible scrolling function. I can not believe it can't be changed.

This problem is common to sites that have jumped on the "infinite scrolling" bandwagon. It takes FOREVER to get anywhere deep, and if you navigate away you lose your place. Then god help you because you have to go through the scrolling ordeal all over again. Give users the option to turn OFF infinite scrolling. Problem solved.
This is a very frustrating problem. Please fix it.
yes, extremely frustrating! I don't go to the e-group as often as I used to because of it

I need to scroll down the members list of my groups
some groups have hundreds and even thousands of members
when trying to edit a members access (for example moderate this member)
i get back to the top !
Or sometimes I cannot go down after 50 names, so I cannot access members that are at the bottom of the list
fix this please !
I am speaking below of the 7th ranking that was previously deleted.
Guys, when you scroll down, click on an email to see it, click to return to inbox, the emails open after at the start of the newest emails. It doesn't return to where you stopped to look. This is a constant and not intermittent problem. I'm pretty sure this is what this request which was 7th means when the user wrote "WHEN I SCROLL DOWN THE LIST OF MESSAGES THE LIST CONSTANTLY RETURNS TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE(THE LAST MESSAGE POSTED),,," Either allow us pages, OR fix your system to remain where a person is looking. I am convinced for all the talk of unlimited mailbox, scrolling was instigated so we couldn't get to past emails, allowing Yahoo to delete them.
I get the same. It is quite destructive to any normal reading pattern a person would use. Active groups can have 50 posts a day to read though but as they refresh the ad (that's what it seems like) they bring you back to the top.
BTW this is also a disability access issue. Screen reader software also restarts at the top and those with mobility impairments who are slower at the keyboard can not get past it to read messages online. You have lot of disabled folks who are on limited income and use computers at the library for reading their groups. This is hampering them.
All your mail and groups shouldn't return to the top. To make this understandable: If every time you were reading a document or a book and you stopped, checked a fact, the document/ book would slam shut and you had to turn page by page to return to the page you wanted, only to be jerked the front of the cover again. How many times would you try to read before you gave up? Slamming people to the beginning over and over again makes it so you can't get to where you want to be reading. I often give up. I just don't have the time to make your system work. I'm spending less, not more time on Yahoo due to the frustration. Since you don't have pages to turn, your scrolling and return to the top of the page makes it impossible. I believe most have given up.
it is impossible to scroll down the list of members of a group
impossible to scroll down messages
if you cannot manage the scroll function, then return to page 1, page 2, page 3
this worked fine !
