        • My Suggestions for the Future of Yahoo Answers (or Verizon Answers)

          With the news of Verizon soon taking over a lot of crucial areas of Yahoo, I have a number of suggestions for Verizon in order for them to improve Yahoo Answers. I really hope someone takes them into consideration.

          Entirely retire this idea of community moderation. It is a failed system that has never worked. Instead I suggest you hire employees to recruited as administrators and moderators for the site. You might have to split your administrators and moderators into teams based on main categories of Yahoo Answers.
          Continue to allow Level 7s to move questions to other categories. BUT…

                • Fix Yahoo Answers !

                  Every time I go onto the site, I can't answer or ask questions. It keeps saying "your criteria doesn't match any questions" every section I'm in. I also cannot ask a question either. When I try to it says that it cannot be posted at the time. This has been happening for days now. I've refreshed and updated and restarted and cleaned and cleared. Nothing works. Fix it.

                  • Will there ever be a new Spam Battle Thread??

                    The link at the top has not worked in months. Is there any thread to report spammers as they have taken over the boards and nothing is happening to them. The accounts remain active no matter how many questions/answers are reported as violations

                      • Is "idk" an accecptible answer to hundreds of questions by a poster?

                        I thought I read in the Terms of Use that "idk" and similar replies was a violation. But, since this poster has hundreds of them it appears not.

                            • Negative Points.

                              When reporting Violations it seems on the occasions when action is taken, the points are reduced to Zero (0).
                              I reported an account for posting only "hey", 3 postings today alone (so far).
                              Of the three only ONE (1) was penalized. The accounts point count of One (1) reduced to Zero (0), The answers count of 242, reduced to 241.

                              I think it is time to make the penalties of violations to go into the negative count. And to post those Negative counts in RED.
                              I have reported dozens of Clear Violations, people who have been committing the Same Violations…

                                  We should be allowed to block anonymous users. I am being stalked by a disrespectful jerk who remains anonymous and my reporting power was ruined by a spammer who was able to overturn my violations even though they leave the same answer to every question anybody ever asks.
