  1. 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…

    • Community reporting is not working!

      A question asking how to hack yahoo is staying up and being answered....How to hack the website?

      I'm so tired of yahoo deleting and reporting every little thing on here and i wanna teach them a lesson. Reported twice still there.
      Someone post a ***** photo asking Why is my tool the biggest one in town? Reported using the bottom tab by 2 users still out there for all to see.
      We do not need another weekend of **** not dropping.

        My suggestion is that you fix the problem with community moderation. Recently, pretty much all trusted reporters have found that they are unable to remove violations. For example, currently in the Yahoo Answers category, there are a number of questions displaying photos of an erect *****. Multiple trusted reporters have flagged these violations, but they refuse to drop.

        • make Answers load the next 20 questions when we get to the end of the list. This is quite inconvenient.

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

          • Starting February 20, Community Moderation appears to be down again.

            COMMUNITY MODERATION SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN DOWN COMPLETELY ON 20 FEBRUARY. NO VIOLATIONS ARE DROPPING, NO MATTER HOW MANY OR WHICH USERS REPORT THEM.

            Can the staff let us know something so we are not wasting our time trying to help Yahoo?

            • 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…

                    • A survey reveals that the majority of Y!A users dislike the new interface and want all or part of the old one back

                      A survey reveals that the majority of Y!A users dislike the new interface and want all or part of the old one back.

                      This is the survey link: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20141002133256AA9eORN

                      It emerged that the main culprits (and the ones worthy of prioritary consideration) are:

                      - Numbered navigation replaced with "infinite scrolling".
                      - Not being able to choose a category before submitting a question.
                      - Cartoon avatars replace by "white on gray" avatars.
                      - Being sent to the beginning of the list of questions after submitting an answer.

                      I'd like to know if you already made a research and if yes why…

                              My saved searches offers no questions in four categories, when usually there are dozens. I often wish there were fewer, but none is not realistic.

                              Questions should be sorted with latest question first. It does not make sense that they are given in a random order.

                                How about you get your butts in gear and start suspending these trolls that are taking over yahoo answers? Your report system is a fail, I can't drop anyone - I am a long time user with a trusted reporter status....did you guys get rid of that ??? Or is your report system yet another thing that does not work???

                                Oh and another thing....why can't you figure out how to ban trolls permanently??? They can so easily make another account....why is it that other websites have figured this out and yet you guys can't!!!???

                                  Anytime I go to edit an answer, after I click the edit button, when I click in the text box the screen jumps back to the top and I have to scroll back down to my answer. Then after editing when I go to click the save button, the same thing happens. This has been happening even before the new format and it happens on Firefox, IE and Chrome (Windows 7)

                                  • punish level 7 users.

                                    I think level 7 users should be punished for moving other people's questions to wrong categories. They seem to be immature and get a kick out of doing it.

                                    • Why is this a violation?

                                      Someone asked how they could find online jobs. I answered with the names of the three biggest online job sites. I appealed it and it was denied.

                                      "We're sorry, but upon review we found that the following <!--CONTENT_TYPE--> was indeed in violation of the Yahoo Answers Community Guidelines:
                                      "Look on sites like Guru.com, Odesk.com or Elance.com to see if there are any jobs posted for someone with your specific skills and experience"
                                      Violation Reason: TOS Violation

                                      Can someone please tell me what is a Violation in this answer? How am I supposed to answer a question if I am not…

                                      • bring back the green format..revise the guidelines to 2015 standards,remove the TRUSTED REPORTER status and start over.

                                        It seems every one of my contacts quit yahoo due to mass false or trivial reporting.It had gotten out of hand and they found friendlier sites,
                                        without users you will go under plain and simple.Revising the guidelines may bring back many,many users,There is no fun in wasting our time while holding our breath thinking we can be reported.
                                        reported for a happy birthday poem? A Merry Christmas wish?
                                        or saying Thanks,Hello? Really? in other words for being a human we get trolled and reported while nasty posts get 100 answers.
                                        Also remove the comments on answers.This is another trap to…

                                        • Fix the stupid glitch that still snatches the cursor from the answer box to the "search Answers" box

                                          Now, the cursor is snatched on original entry, not just when doing multiple answers. Aggravating as h*ll to be focusing on the answer and have words and a drop down list suddenly appear as if I wanted to spend 5 points on asking a question.
