  2. Annoying Email formatting in Yahoo Groups

    Can you please change the way emails are formatted? It's super annoying having paragraphs double spaced twice. Leave my formatting alone!

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Photo Albums - please make "Alphabetical" default sort setting!

    Far more members go looking for an album by Title (content) than by date. It is painful to have to re-set "alphabetical" every single time we add to an album.

    Those who are date-based now have the Photostream option anyway, so please can we have "alphabetical" back as the default setting?

    Either that, or what used to happen (old YGroups) was that if you set sortation to "alphabetical", it stayed that way until you selected another option.

    In other words, the user created the default setting by their own choice. Is it possible to go back to the old way?

  7. bring back the WORLD SITE MAP so we can show and see where all our members are located.

    We are a world wide group and it was so nice to see all of the countries our members represented. Plus it helped members seek out other members in their vicinity to make personal contact if desired.

    The domain name FreeZoneEarth.org has expired Feb. 1, 2015. If you go to that website, you will find that GoDaddy.com is offering to sell or renew that domain name. You may wish to contact Whomever to renew that domain name.
    The stated email address and name is not true. In case that is a real person and email address, kindly do not bother that person. I choose to be anonymous.

  10. What is the name of the group I am looking at?

    I don't understand why the name of the group I am logged into doesn't display in a separate place. Yes, it is on the left, along with all my other groups. But there is rather indistinguishable. It just blends in, the background color is too subtle. And there is no reason why the font is not a different color.

  11. Allow group owners to set how long a subscription request can be pending before it expires.

    We are very slow at approving new members. We want the subscription request to not expire so soon. I would like them to not expire for 8 weeks.

  12. Harvest unused group names.

    Harvest unused group names. I created and then mistakenly deleted T-104-PLC by mistake, and it will not let me recreate it. It has been 5 months... still waiting... It still claims it is "in use" when in reality it only existed for 2 minutes.

  14. link to groups in mail menu

    It would be nice to have my groups show up on the home page menu and a link to it in Yahoo mail menu. Maybe there is a way, but I can't figure it out and am tired of always having to search for groups

  15. 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.

  18. Saving 'action' settings based on the user.

    Everytime I get in and view a group of pictures I have to reset the 'action' to get it sorted the way I want (i.e. most recent). This is very irritating to have to do each time. The actions default settings should be set by the user.

  19. Let moderator mark email as spam, and blacklist it. I just reopened my KR-language group to everybody, and got spam in the first 5 minutes.

    Moderator can delete spam messages. Why not allow marking as spam, and blacklisting, and forwarding to Yahoo spam control.

  20. Allow a pending member of a group to specify which email address a group will send emails to before the membership is approved.

    My group is restricted and requires members submit an application to join. The application includes what email address they want to use. They are told their group join request must match EXACTLY the same email address. Yahoo groups does not allow them to specify a email address and only shows it for their yahoo email. It usually never matches and causes extra work matching the application with the join. Then the email needs to be changed after the join is approved.
