  4. Better Ad Filter

    I understand that you feel ads are necessary, but you need to enhance (or create if there isn't already one) the filter used to display ads. Our group, a Boy Scout troop, had an ad displayed for a mature dating site. This is completely inappropriate and potentially damaging to our troop's reputation if parents were to see such ads displayed, even if it's understood that we have no control over what's displayed.

  5. Add moderation setting so postings by all non-members must be approved first

    Please add a moderation setting to allow postings by all non-members of a Yahoo Group to be approved first - We use Yahoo groups for our committee but people who are not committee members need to be able to send a message to us collectively so we accept messages from non-members. Unfortunately we are now receiving a lot of spam that has made it through Yahoo's filters, so it would be really useful to be able to head that off before it reaches everyone's inboxes.

  6. Allow us to download archive messages and export more than 1000 members

    I have been running a large listserv on yahoogroups for 11 years. The group is important for a lot of reasons. A lot of the communication can be used as a resource for my colleagues. Therefore the ability to download the archived messages to safe keeping and to create FAQs and other resources is important. Furthermore I have 1725 members and would have piece of mind to be able to occasionally export the list for safe keeping and statistic purposes.

  7. Group calendar needs "send reminder now" option

    This is an "enhancement" to compensate for a serious problem. Our group calendar repeatedly fails to send event reminders, and our only calendar option is to wait for the next available pre-programmed reminder time. For many years our members have received weekly reminders 2 days in advance, and when that reminder isn't sent on time, we should be able to push it out immediately, rather than wait another day to find out whether or not THAT reminder will work or put in even more manual labor to send a regular email notice.

  10. Issue of approving applicants

    Hi,

    I run two groups in Yahoo the Stay Dry Bedwetting group https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/staydry/ establishes in 8-2005 and staydry-discussion : StayDry Bedwetting Parent Discussion Grp http://groups.yahoo.com/group/staydry-discussion/

    I have a hard time approving members because I cannot see applicants profile to see if the meet group policy . So I have to have them copy their profile and email it to me to see if they are complying. However, most don’t either they don’t want to or don’t know how to send it to me. So since the change in Yahoo I have approved very few members.

    Moderators should at least have…

  11. Set the time of day for daily digest receipt

    Why do the daily digests come in at 3 AM. It wakes me up. I need my phone on for things that I actually have to respond to in the middle of the night, but the daily digest isn't one of them.

  14. Hi, I run a 1700+ member group on yahoogroups and after several efforts at monetizing it to sustain the effort, found that I needed a websit

    Add functionality for each yahoogroup to have a website where ads can be posted, group blogs can be run, the group can see the calendar of events in one view - This will bring Yahoo a lot of money from group admins that want to monetize their yahoogroup. Yahoo can sell domain links and the website functionality as well. With the stickiness Yahoogroups create, its only the next best addition the Yahoo team can make to Yahoogroups. Check out www.newportmommy.com for seeing what yahoogroups that need to monetize are resorting to - you are throwing your money to competitors in…

  15. Please add ability to bookmark/file individual posts

    It would be great if we could bookmark a particular post to read or access again later. It woudl be even better if we could sort our bookmarks using labels.

  16. Enhance the SORT functionality

    It would be great if we could sort messages by type I.E Offered, Wanted, Taken etc that way you can focus on the area you want without having to scroll through all the others. Thanks :)

  17. Yahoo Has become so tacky and clottered!!!!!

    Yahoo has become so tacky overall. The email portal is by far the worst. The portal is so tacky and got so much going on till its a tragic to work with....Sometimes when i go on, ill just simply log back off because i can barely read any email because of this annoying drag down box thats under the other emails.....its tacky and so aggravating!!!!! Please go back to more of the basic type of email portal that you had before because its just a down right disaster!!!

  18. Pre-emptive approval for non-members to post

    The flip-side to this (which has already been implemented):

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/4675394-ability-to-ban-non-members-preemptively

    http://yahoogroups.tumblr.com/post/79361314383/additional-tools-for-member-management

    Non-members can post to our group. We want it that way so that various officials can distribute news etc. but not be privy to our discussions.

    Unfortunately, we are now getting a lot of malware from unknown sources taking advantage of this open posting facility, even though the group is unlisted.

    To combat this, I've turned on moderation for new members. That should mean any posts from new non-member addresses also have to be moderated (unless I've misunderstood and it doesn't work like that.)

    Because certain people with known…

  19. Control your view and sort preferences

    A very positive step was taken July 15. Now, please make this available to the moderator for the group for the whole group instead of letting the individual members of the group set their own preferences.

  20. Please add a "Classifieds" feature so group members can post items for sale. I moderate a 2000 member group and it is often reqested.

    The old Yahoo Groups had this feature but it was removed in the last version. Please put it back.
