    • Yahoo, please return the "number of answers" icon to each question when on the home page.

      I'm a regular "spam buster" and have noticed that you've just removed the little "icon" that says how many answers a question has received. This is when you're on the home page of each category.

      I'm reporting the fake Yahoo spammers who post their stuff on recently posted questions, and we now have no way of knowing if a spammer has just posted on a recently-asked question. Well, we do have a way - we now have to click on every single question, a lot of which won't have an answer yet. But we have no way of knowing this…

        • Why are people allowed to make new profiles and post the same questions countless times?

          There is a user who goes around posting the same videos and pictures, implying that the two people in the picture are siblings in some sort of incestuous relationship. Not even five minutes ago one popped up and so I searched for the video (since the account was marked private) and no fewer than twenty questions containing the video with the same implied incestuous relationship popped up. I know more than that have been deleted.

          Then there is the guy who keeps posting pictures of himself saying he's a waiter and girls stare at him and laugh.

          Then there's the…

          • Two suggestions to help with reporting problems

            1. Volunteer moderators. Sometimes appeals of violations take a long time to get replied to, or never get replied to. With appropriate safeguards (make sure no one gets violations from their followers/blocked people, etc, and require 3 volunteer moderators to agree before a violation is either dismissed or upheld), volunteer moderators could reduce the backlog.

            2. Sometimes, one person or a small group of people go after someone not because of true violations, but because of something that annoyed them personally. This can leave the victim with a flood of violation notices for things that weren't really violations.

            My idea…

            • I've noticed that despite people answering my question anonymously, I am given their username in the e-mail that notifies me of their answer

              I noticed this just now. Someone answered a sensitive question of mine and although their answer was given anonymously, in the email I received notifying me they'd answered, I found their username, thus nullifying the anonymous feature.

              • Please put the question asker's user name back on the question title pages

                There are users on here who will use Y.A. to troll specific topics by posting a "serious" question but when people click on the question they are met with insulting comments or obscene images. I would rather avoid questions from these users, but we now have no way of knowing who is asking a question.

                If users can see who is asking the question to begin with then they can avoid clicking on questions from those who regularly troll a subject.

                • Make it possible to appeal a comment deletion.

                  The current link to "Customer Care email" provided on a violation notice brings up a screen with an "Appeals" link in the first box, which leads to a link to "Appeal a comment deletion" in the second box, which leads to an "Email" link in the third box. The screen that appears when these options are selected REQUIRES the "Yahoo ID of the person you are reporting" and will not proceed without that field being filled. This makes an appeal impossible. Please correct this immediately.

                  • Allow users to pick which section they want their question to be put in please?

                    The reason for me asking is because I am frankly tired of Yahoo just putting my question into a section randomly based off of key words or just 1 word in general. It is never correct and very inaccurate. Something tells me you only did this to give the "Edit category." button purpose because there is no real point to using it. And most of the time a question is moved is become some user moves it....but not to the correct section!

                    For example, I'll ask a political question, and it will be put in "Polls and Surveys." I'll move…

                      I get to the end of a list of question, and no more are loaded. Do you people even have a quality control department?

                      • When an answer is reported the next answer gets indented about an inch.

                        If two are reported the next answer gets indented another inch after the first one. This happens in Firefox. I have not checked in IE. This problem has been there for weeks. Note: I reported 2 spam support ads.

                              • Bring back "no best answer""

                                I've noticed that you don't get points if a "best answer" has been chosen. This makes sense to prevent pointgaming, but it doesn't work if none of the answers is any good. That's why I suggest you bring back the "no best answer" button. Ideally, this would block all points for new answers, unless the asker grants "best answer' to an answer given after "no best answer" was clicked

                                • Yahoo Answers not working well today.

                                  Attempts to look at comments, profiles or the second page of multi-page answers usually fail: nothing happens or the Yahoo front page appears or a blank page is displayed.

                                  It usually work on a second or third attempt. However, there are some comments that I could not see, even after more than a dozen attempts.

                                    I receive THREE violation reports today for answers so old I have not clue when I posted them. They all have 2 things in common.
                                    1. The all mention annualcreditreport.com.
                                    2. They don't come anywhere close to violating any rules.

                                    The automated appeal system has already denied one appeal on this issue.

                                        • Can we PLEASE turn off the ability for any Lvl 7 to change the category of any question

                                          I can't keep any question in one category for more than 2 minutes. There are so many Level 7 pranksters that they spend all day moving questions into obscure categories. Can we PLEASE stop letting them prank the entire site like this?
