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 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. Start maintaining Yahoo Answers or close it

    I have been on Yahoo Answers almost since it started and have over a million points. When is Yahoo going to start maintaining it or close it? Following are problems that I see.
    It has been taken over by members who post ****** or vulgar questions and seem to have an inside group.
    I do not believe Top Contributor or Trust status is being updated.
    Reporting questions or answers seems to have no effect.
    The Top Answerers and Leaderboard are not being updated.
    The Yahoo Answers blog has not been updated for months.
    The "About Me" section in the settings…

  3. Why aren't these questions deleting,all chatting about other users

    I should be able to delete these with my high reputation,so it seems reporting is not working very efficiently.

  6. Have a place you can actually ask a questio and not just pick from questions you chose

    Have a place you can ask a question not just pick from your questions which do not address the issue

  7. If you do maintenance, please shut down the site completely

    We can't edit our answers, can't comment, can't report... Better shut down the site completely and say in advance when (in UTC) it will be reactivated.

  8. Please fix the Leader Boards in the Royalty threads.

    I have been the top best answerer in this thread for years. My name has disappeared. My account is still active, I answer questions every day--what has happened to my points?

    We are actively investigating the issue with the leaderboards. They should be up and running soon :)

  9. why are Trolls allowed to post anonymously?

    the 'Post as Anonymous' Feature is nothing but Troll bait... it allows people to post question with no way of know who they are or how to stop them...
    It's bad enough "Block" doesn't apply the 'warning label any more, but now any one can hide behind that little spy mask and ask The Dumbest, or most offensive question; and it stays up until Admin Reacts

    We plan to allow the blocking of anonymous people in the future. Expect anonymous answering to go away, expect anonymous asking to stay.

    We are working on notifications to remind people to select a BA in the short term and reworking how BA works in the medium term.

  11. Please let users pick the "Relevance" menu....nothing that pops up is 'relevant' to me...

    I only want to see "newest" or "most recent", as my sole reason most days to pop in here is to help others by answering their questions.
    Some Brainiac decided to remove the date stamp thingie that always used to be on the questions....this is invaluable to we who spend a lot of time perusing. HUGE waste of time to read or answer a question that is years old...my favourite is when I chose a question and it's one I answered years ago, AND got best answer on!
    Do any of you actually act as users and try to manouver…

    Agreed. The “relevant” option no longer works. We are working on making it work again. I also agree that date stamps are an important part of the question.

  12. I can't use the Yahoo Answers website

    Let me use the Yahoo Answers website.
