ANSWERS new Suggestion Board

Welcome to our Yahoo Answers feedback forum! This is a place for you to help shape the Yahoo Answers experience. We review the most popular, feasible ideas from this forum to make positive changes to Yahoo Answers.

Here are some guidelines for using this forum:

  1. Please search and vote before posting! If your idea (or an idea very similar to yours) has already been posted, please vote for it. Duplicated ideas may be moved.
  2. This forum is for feedback and ideas only. Unfortunately, we cannot provide support here. For support, please visit our community support forum or find answers on our help site.
  3. For password or sign-in feedback or suggestions, click here.
  4. Please do not post personal information (such as email addresses, phone numbers or names) on the forum.

The Yahoo product feedback forum requires a valid Yahoo ID and password. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

I suggest you ...

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".
(thinking…)

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

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

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

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

  2. Appeals Procee Needs Reviewing

    YA is finally going all the way down the drain. Long time users are getting violations for good direct answers and now the appeal people are telling them good direct answers they have been giving for years are indeed violations of the rules. Yahoo, the last thing to bring the death of this site is to push your long time users out the door.

  4. Tools/features to help users deal with trolls

    Here are some tools/features to help users deal with trolls and trolling:

    - Allow users to block other users so that they don't see their posted questions or answers. There are some troll users here that I know will never ask a legitimate question, and that will only post abusive answers . . . for example, there are users only ever post racist questions. A feature hiding their posted questions, answers, and comments would be nice - if I can't see it, then it won't bother me.

    - Allow users to hide their questions and answers from others users, so…

  7. Being Blocked.

    Spend minutes composing an answer to a Anonymous Question.
    When Submitting, find out that the person has blocked me.

    Blocking should not be allowed when posting as Anonymous.
    OR the removal of the Answer/Reply Box, as when the person post in their account name.

  8. Why is my email account being deleted 10/14/2018

    I just received an email from crossabraham.com saying they are going to close my email within one hour of me opening the mail. If I want to stop my account from being deleted then I am to reply but I am afraid if I do it is spam and will cause harm to my account and/or my info.
    Is this a notice from Yahoo or is it a scam?

    If I write an answer with my PC and want to change a word or a letter with my mobile, it shows me red numbers "-321".

  11. Messenger still appears as an option for getting notifications under "Preferences"

    In the Answers section, when you click to edit your user preferences, go to "Privacy Settings" and you will see an option to Answers Community Can contact me via Yahoo Messenger

    since Oath discontinued Yahoo Messenger, this seems to be one spot that QA missed

  12. Indicate questions that have been viewed or opened in the browser.

    So when we open a question in any category or in our activity page the link colour should change from blue to purple.That signifies which questions have been opened or viewed in the browser.

  13. allow an unlimited word limit for typing in details on questions please

    I recently asked a question and tried to add as much detail in the description box as well for the situation. come to find out theres a word limit, and when youve already typed out everything it is very troublesome having to keep "updating question" over and over again to get every last word out.

  14. Please get rid of the shadowy texts that are hard to see

    They light ghosly texts in a very light grey or blight blue are very hard to see for people who have eye problems.
    If you don't know what I mean they are posted under each question on the board and also in our profile page .For example look at the word "More" and you will figure it out.

  18. Filter by No Answer

    I used to be able to filter by no answer and I don't see it. When answering math there is likely 1 answer and is redundant to go through the effort when it's already solved.

    Agreed. This will be done when the profiles are updated. Users will be able to have a profile picture and name separate from their Yahoo Account.

    You should be able to update your picture by updating your Yahoo Account again. This was fixed.
