US Answers

Hi, please let us know how we can improve Answers experience.

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 vote and comment on it.

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

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

    • Keep the community vote. Askers don't vote 99 per cent of the time, so answers will be held in limbo.

      Keep the community vote. Askers don't vote 99 per cent of the time, so answers will be held in limbo. There will be no references for people who need them. Trolls and gamers will have total control now. Not sure I want to waste time on a site with no positive resolve.

      • Why bother having a feedback forum when you totally ignore all the feedback?

        The reaction to the new Answers format has been almost universally negative, and instead of take that on board, Yahoo is EXPANDING the new format to the international sites. Why not save time and effort by dropping the pretence that you remotely care about what your users think?

        • This new format sucks. Its not easier, its not simple, its not user-friendly. You say its easier - that tells me you don't even use it.

          • When are you people going to get the hint that everyone HATES the new format?

            You have long time users threatening to leave Yahoo answers forever! Do you REALLY still think this is a good idea?

            • Get rid of this Answer your own Question so called feature.

              It is beyond crazy!!! If someone finds their answer somewhere else
              the sensible thing to do would be to delete the question. Now all those users answering just for points can copy the correct answer posted by the asker. This will just get more answers and more questions will end up in voting..No reason to choose a best answer if you already have it.
              Some ridiculous things have been implemented on this new format but this is beyond ridiculous.
              Better to fix all the glitches before adding more Non Features. RIDICULOUS all i can say!!!

              • I'm having a weird infinite scrolling problem

                On every one of my questions that I try to look at, there is, for no readily apparent reason, an ever-expanding gap between my question and all of the answers. This makes it impossible to actually *read* the answers, since I can't keep them in-frame for more than a fraction of a second at a time.

                • Hate the new format, thinking of leaving. Layout feels amateurish

                  Go back to the old format! That's an idea!

                    The old format was simple and easy to work with! Everyone wants the old format! It's annoying and irritating me!! Go back to the old format!

                    • I have a GREAT idea!

                      Why not go back to the old format, get rid of all these foolish adds, and appease those of us who spent all this time helping to keep the community clean? 70% of the questions in here are links to prostitution sites. I for one stopped reporting and answering questions with this new format in disgust with it. How long does YAT think Answers will last with all this going on?

                        • Several suggestions

                          First, I concur with other people asking to be able to switch back to the green "classic" version of Y!A. It was simple and loaded fast. The new version of Y!A, and with every change, is bloated and loaded down with tons of code (usually java script and ads) that is so unnecessary. I have a slow internet connection, all that's available where I live, and for supposedly just being text with minimal graphics any Y!A page takes a long time to load. One simple page is almost 2MB of data, and that's with ads blocked.

                          Second, placing the answer…

                            • Boycott yahoo answers

                              We need to completely boycott the site until the format is changed back or at the very least we are given the option of picking our own format.

                                    • The most foolish thing about the whole "Answers experience" is letting the people who ask the questions pick the best answers.

                                      People who are asking legitimate questions (and not trolling or merely expressing opinions followed by a question mark) are certainly NOT in the position to determine what the best answer is. If they knew that, they wouldn't be asking.

                                      That feature needs to be deleted

                                        • Didn't ask for it. Didn't want it. Loved the old format. And it appears I am not alone in this sentiment.

                                          The new Yahoo!Answers format is really amateurish and difficult to navigate or understand.

                                          Many people who have posted on Y!A for years are telling Yahoo that the format is not all that and a bag of chips. Its kind of limp.

                                          I get that they want to make it mobile and tablet friendly. But its become unfriendly to the bulk of the users.

                                          Its confusing, convoluted, too busy to understand. And difficult to navigate. It is far from intuitive.

                                          It may be intuitive to the team that developed the general concept, but we do not share their brain cells.
