Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. Improvements you can make

    1. Fix the Files section so that it's readable. Right now, when viewing text files, the words are scrunched together because your site has problems reading spaces. This makes the text files virtually unusable, and if you don't want to fix it, then don't have the function.
    2. Fix the Files section so that you are able to view text files without having to download them, like before.
    3. Fix the database section so that the database doesn't get deleted (or log you out) whenever you edit it.
    4. Fix the database section so that you don't make duplicate entries…

  5. My favorite group was hijacked, I was evicted, and since then, it's been abandoned.

    My favorite group was qumran_origin, which was set up by David Christainsen to discuss the works of Barbara Thiering. First, it was disrupted by people who had no interest in her works. Then, it was swamped by interlopers who apparently wanted to side-track the discussion. Then, Barbara Thiering dropped out, and soon, David Christainsen dropped out, too. The new moderator must have disapproved of me, because I'm now persona non grata, and nobody is responding to messages to the moderator. Worst of all, the files have been deleted, and people like me (no longer an approved member) can't use the…

  6. member search quota?

    I sure hope Yahoo is working on this function and hasn't actually imposed a limit on the number of times a group owner can search members on neo. I received an error message saying I have ecxeeded my daily quota after only 2 searches!

  7. We are finding some members are unable to respond on the group. They can reply if a post comes through in the emails but they can't access

    We are finding some members are unable to respond on the group. They can reply if a post comes through in the emails but they can't access the group online. they are told they aren't members. I have one member who has had to apply to be a member three times and now it has happened again? Why?

  9. io.help.yahoo.com/contact does not work

    I can't even file a request for help (with Yahoo e-mail) because the "Contact us" form won't recognise any kind of e-address I supply it. Even though the e-address is optional, I still get "Some information is missing or incomplete. Please review the form and ensure that all information is correct.- Enter a valid email address" regardless of the value used (or if I use no value).

  11. The event calendar in the "Group"section is very hard to fine. Please put the calendar where it's much for identifialble. Took me forever

    To add group membership there should be an icon clear on top and the group calendar icon should be very easy to find. This site is pathetic. Extremely hard to find option to add member and hard to find the calendar. Primitive!!!

    You can improve Groups further by restoring the CSS formatting for group descriptions.

  15. "Oops! Invalid path!" - You guys lost 3 folders of information from my preschool

    I've been managing a few groups I own as the secretary for our all school board. All day, I've been cutting and pasting files and folders to archive items from previous years in preparation for the new school year. Well, I went to cut several folders and paste them in the newly created archive folder, and they just disappeared. Then, the names of the folders showed up in the top "files" folder. But I get "Oops! Invalid path!" on all of them. I've cleared my cache but that didn't help. Can you please give my information back to me? Or…

  17. PLEASE re-enable the ability to search through a group's messages. It no longer works without polls enabled, a moderator ONLY function!

    PLEASE re-enable the ability to search through a group's messages. It no longer works without polls enabled, which is a moderator ONLY function! If one is not a moderator, you are simply stuck with no searching by keywords.

  18. Allow to delete all messages in a specified range as before NEO.

    Before NEO, messages were listed one "page" at a time (30 messages). By selecting the "all" button, all/just the messages on that "page" were deleted and not ALL the messages of the group like now.
    We keep messages only for the last 6 months. So, as a moderator, I have to delete some hundreds of messages each month, clicking them one by one !
    With the single page displayed now, it could be done using a range of messages determined by first and last message numbers.

  20. Daily quota

    I just joined Yahoo a few days ago. I did this because of the groups, normally I use only Google. When I was trying to join one of the groups I couldn't get the CAPTCHA code it or rather it didn't work correctly because I tried many different codes and also the audio version. Afterwards I seemed to get lucky and it didn't say anything about the captcha but that my daily quota has been exceeded. I admit I pressed many times to join before this. Now is a completely new day but it still says "You have exceeded your…
