  1. If I offer a Freecycle item and more than one person wants it, who do I choose?

    Under Freecycle rules, we are required to wait 24 hours after placing an OFFER advert, as this gives all interested users a chance to reply. If two or more people want the item offered, how do we choose who should have it? We need guidelines!

  2. where's the navigation to a group? search field doesn't work... so you took away something that didn't work and now we have nothing?

    Either give me a list of groups I am member of based on my login, or at least allow entry of group name into search field and have that take you to the group page. Right now I am finding no navigation at all.

  3. Have an actual "Customer Help". I'm a group owner and suddenly I cannot delete a file from "Files." There is NO WAY TO CONTACT YAHOO!

    Yahoo's "contact us" is a quick way to high blood pressure. There is NO WAY TO CONTACT YAHOO. After exhausting all possible mis-information routes a person trying to get word to Yahoo is left with a useless 'was this article helpful" choice of radio buttons.

    Right now I'm an owner of a group that needs immediate work on some files in Files. The flash icons show (edit, copy, delete) but nothing happens when you click on them. I've tried using two different computers with up-do-date operating system (W8.1 & IE11) and nothing makes any difference.

    I've been trying for two…

  4. Remove embedded HTML code from digests

    Many of our listers take email digests rather than visiting the webpage, and the digests are massively congested with what I'm told is HTML code after the content. Can this be removed please?

  5. Since 01-Jul-14 Yahoogroups is not sending reminders for calendar events where it has added new non-working email/messenger reminder option

    Since 01-Jul-14 Yahoogroups is not sending reminders for calendar events where it has added new non-working email/messenger reminder option.

    For one of my groups, Yahoo has, on its own, added a check box for selecting whether we would like reminders via email or messenger. Yahoo removed our default of email reminder while giving these two options. And worse, it does not save our preference even if we try to edit and save a preference for email.

    As a result, no reminders are being sent out for calendar events.

    And like I mentioned before, this is specific to only one group.…

  6. Posting to groups is no longer recognizing the Enter key.

    Would like to be able to write using proper paragraphs again! Have tried it in Firefox on both Windows and Mac and neither one recognizes the Enter key.

  7. 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!!!

  8. Automatic poll closing is not working.

    When creating a poll, you have the option of closing it manually or giving a date on which it should close. Polls are not closing on the dates on which they are set to close. They all have to be closed manually. Is there perhaps a cron to close these polls that is no longer running?

  9. 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…

  10. can't stop receiving emails from group

    I think if I click "manage my groups" and set a group to "no emails" I should stop receiving emails. However, I still receive updates.

  13. Your so- called improvement of the Groups is a total fiasco (failure)! It takes forever to load photos, files, links, etc. It is so slow!

    Return to the old format! This new and improved format is a total fiasco!
    it takes forever to load photos, files, links etc. Seriously, why try to improve something that did not require any improvement.
    There seems to be a lot of discontent with this new format, so now that you have tried the new, go back to the former format! it will make everyone much happier!

  14. Loathe the noisy adverts on groups

    For your advertisers information, these are so irritating, particularly that if you mute one and then open another page you get the ad again at full blast, I'm now automatically muting the computer before I go to my groups. Fail. Many of my group members now refuse to go to the group site and only read/reply via digest.

    Every day, in every way, you make the groups harder and less pleasant to use.... I seriously wonder why I'm still bothering.

  15. 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.

  17. fix the calendar, and be easier to contact

    I am having issues with the calendar. When I finally worked out how to contact Yahoo about it (don't ask me how, I don't know and cannot seem to replicate and now tells me that email address is dead), they sent what I believe to be automated messages. Finally, I sent back another reply and they turned the reminders/events back on for a few days. They told me it was due to spam on the site. There has been NO spam so this was a convenient excuse for them. A few days later, it has gone off again and I…

  19. Fix viewing Photos & reorder function

    In my group Imagining Ellowyne Wilde, we cannot view the photos lately, most of the time members are just getting blank squares & if you click on the photo, you just get a spinning circle & a black page. Also my reorder function in the photo albums is NOT working!!

    Also when looking in an album it takes a long time for the photos to load when scrolling down the page & sometimes don't load at all.

    My group relies heavily on photos, so please fix these problems!!!!!!
