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".
(thinking…)

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.

    • Why can't messages be searched by member ID rather than mesage #?

      Before you changed everything messages could easily be searched by user ID which makes sense. Now It appears messages can only be searched by message number but who remembers (or even notices) the message #?

      • How about an educational system for the morons who decide what constitutes "spam," such as invoices from my IP host.

        Even back in the 90s, I've always considered Yahoo to be the web equivalent to Micros**t--inferior "technology" and stupid decisions on behalf of users.

        • I like the new vertical format for "Choose a Topic" on the help page

          Much easier to use than the frustrating "ribbon" format you had earlier.

          I'd like to see more topics, and more Top Articles in each.

          Also, it would be nice if there were a "table of contents" of articles, where one could find all articles. As it stands there are many articles that can be found only by search. Perhaps more of those than those listed as Top Articles.

          • yahoo messenger

            This is for the messenger since there isnt a option for it i think they should bring back the chat room feature for it so that people can actually have some fun with it now i see why everyone is going to snapchat and kik yahoo needs to figure out a way to make there services more fun and innovative i dont know why they changed so much on their messenger but they ruined the whole thing hopefully they fix this soon

                  • Another glitch in Yahoo that needs fixing

                    Over in OrientalStampArt in Yahoogroups when we click on an album and then click on a photo to enlarge, the window is buried underneath the main header of the web site so we can't see the whole card.

                    Yesterday it was fine, today it's screwed up. Please fix!

                      • For some reason some of us in teh stcgabodgroup doe not have a "New Topic" button (at least one of us does but that doesn't help the others)

                        Most of the the people in the stcgabodgroup do not have the "New Topic" button so there is no way to start another topic. I also have been unable to reply to other posts (the normal "Reply" button is not there and when I click on the "reply" there is no "Send!" I've got something I need to post to our board for a quick discussion but can't and will have to do it via email and phone--kind of negates the use of a yahoo group doesn't it?????

                        • I am having trouble sending a message to Central King Freecycle Group. No response when I try to type message in body or click "send". Help!

                          Change back to old format. This format rarely works for me and renders this site pretty much useless.

                            • Clicking on email address takes me to Windows mail, not Yahoo mail.

                              If I click on an email address in a group post it opens the default Windows mail program instead of Yahoo mail. Since I actually use Yahoo mail for my group correspondence, this makes it nearly impossible to email group members since their full addresses are not shown, just a partial address as part of the link.
                              Is anyone working on Yahoo groups that actually USE Yahoo groups?
