  3. Unable to edit my answer, rate answers, read or post comments to answers.

    The links to edit my answer, thumbs up/down on my and other answers, and the comment link all appear and can be selected but nothing happens for an extended period; half an hour or more. I use Firefox on a desktop computer.

  4. Fix the "About Me" section in the Q&A profiles

    This has been broken for far too long and nothing has been done about it.

    When I proceed to edit my "about me" on the Q&A Profile, I edit the text, then press save.

    But when I go back to it, it has not updated the about me with the new information. It has the previous content.

    This should have been fixed within 24 hours of it being reported initially. I want it fixed immediately.

  7. Yahoo answers notifications not going to email?

    Was curious if anyone else has noticed that even though the option is checked to get notified via email that an question has been answered, isn't getting an email notification from answer? If this problem is just on me, what can I do to finally fix it?

  9. feb 3rd 2019, glitch eating chunks of feed is back

    going down the "answers"-sorting you see questions up to several hours old, and then suddenly questions posted 3-4 weeks ago.

    can this be fixed?

  10. Please check email functions - I do not receive a message if getting a best answer.

  12. stop giving me the error message that my question can't be posted and try again later.

    It's not an idea it's a plea. Almost every time I try to post a question I get an error message saying "Sorry, we couldn't post your question right now. Please try again later." Please fix this already. It's been going on for years now.

  13. This is how you increase security on Yahoo Answers!

    *Introduce captcha code

    *Make the "sources" filed mandatory for all answers.

    *Change your coding and algorithms to auto detect that the language input into a submission is correct for the version of Yahoo Answers being used.

    *Alter your algorithms to detect and prevent content not in adherence to the question and answer format. If a response sounds too much like a question

    *Introduce a character minimum of 250 characters for all answers. If it's less than 250 characters, it's probably not very informative anyway.

    *Temporarily suspend any user who fails to submit a profile avatar and profile page bio within…

  14. Answers vanishing from questions

    I've noticed a few questions recently where I and a number of other users have answered questions, but returning to it later, all of the answers have vanished. I've received no email notification of any sort of moderation. The question still is there, but with no way to submit answers. What's going on here?

    Example of a question where people answered, yet no answers appear now:

  15. Answers disappear after editing.

    For the past year or so my answers have intermittently not been visible to the community. It has taken me some time to realize that the disappearing act only happens after editing and resubmitting.If you submit an answer and don't edit then it can be seen by all. However if later you do some editing the answer then disappears from view for everybody except the poster.

  16. There is a glitch with the thumbs down rating

    I nave noticed that the thumbs down rating I have given some answers disappears and I have to continually check and make sure the ratings remain posted. The answerers are trouble-causing trolls who use Answers to rant and attack and post lies, not give truthful, researched replies to questions.

  17. I am not seeing my contacts questions they follow, upvote, or answer, is there someone who fixes these issues working for yahoo

    I need to know where I can find a fix for this; there used to be a link so yahoo could come in and fix issues like this. Does anyone know where this gear went to?

  18. Answers submitted are only visible to the poster.

    When I submit an answer I can see it in the list of answers for that question. However, when the question is viewed by others (including the poster of the question) it often cannot be seen ! This has been a problem experienced by many users for well over a year and makes the whole purpose of YA futile. Surely somebody can fix this ?

  19. Spam Filter hides answers after small edits (after initial post)

    Spam filter is hiding answers after a small correction of typo or errors.
    So after initially posting an answer , I go back to the answer and edit it by correcting
    small typos. Then, the answer disappears from the site.
    I can still see the answer, but the answer count goes down
    and other people I know on the site can no longer see my
    answer.

  20. Please, allow an unlimited word limit for typing in the mobile version

    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".
