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.

  1. Why can't I copy and paste old postings into a fresh word document?

    Please allow to copy parts of old postings into Word so we can create a document that only has the minimum information required?
    Or allow a post to be re-emailedto yourself?

  2. Reporting abuse almost imposible. Your 'reply to this message' is attached to a message that SAYS you cant reply to it!

    Make it easier to report abusive emails and have an email account you can use instead of having to spend hours trying to find a good email address

  5. FIX IT! Can't access my group, can't register back to it with a new id.

    FIX IT! Can't access my 11 years old group, my id is now unknown to the system although I still get daily mails from my group. I can't register back to it with a new id. it's lame. I wasted lots of silly time.

  6. Paragraph Breaks - still an issue

    While the line/paragraph breaks issue is better than it was with regard to posting messages, there is still a concatenation of the first and second paragraphs for me. I'm currently using Firefox, but also use Safari and have had this problem with both browsers.

    Please help us separate all paragraphs in our text, not just those that fall after the first two.

  7. Remove INACTIVE groups from the directory as a default

    The Yahoo Groups directory is FULL of groups that have had NO ACTIVITY for well over a year. As a default, these groups should not appear when searching for a group by keyword. I suggest adding a link or checkbox to "Include inactive groups in search", but by default they should not show up, since they are unlikely to be a useful group anymore.

  8. Moderator no longer available, how do we replace?

    Establish a method where a sole moderator who is no longer available can be replaced. Originator of group is no longer available, but automated messages continue to arrive, and lately have been suing GMT instead of local time. This is a group for a youth organization; the original moderator is long since moved away. We cannot add/delete members without a moderator, nor can we change'/add/delete messages or even delete the group without an approved moderator.

  9. Message senders are not receiving their own messages

    I manage a moderated Yahoo Group. A number of members have reported that, when they send a message to the Group, and I approve, they don't receive their own message from the Group. Therefore, they never know if their message went through or not. Every member should receive every approved message.

  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.

  13. Add sort newest to oldest on membership list and retain that setting after list closes

    Add an option to sort the membership list so newest members are at the top AND RETAIN THAT SETTING rather than have to click Joined every time I need to find the newest members of the group

  14. Once agian the group photo albums are screwed up!

    Now I cannot as the group owner/moderator move photos to an appropriate album.

    ongoing issues with the group photo albums:

    Latest: The pull down on each photo in "EDIT ALBUM mode does not allow me to move the photo.

    Recent: When in "EDIT ALBUM" you cant see the date on the photos. WHY? I have a need to delete older photos, and trying to toggle back and forth between EDIT and where I can see the date is ******* impossible in large albums

    Old problem:

    Who was the "Genius" that decided ALL we need to manage photos in ONE level…

  16. A member I invited to my group has the wrong name because she was using a computer that was already logged on to the group by someone else.

    I need to change the name of someone in my group who was inadvertently registered under my name but her email address. What do I do?

  17. DATABASES STILL PROBLEMS after revamping

    I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

    Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

    However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

    1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

    example: I try to sort out…
