  1. Unable to sign in to Yahoo Answers

    When I try to sign in, I am redirected back to the sign in page after my password is entered. Meaning the Yahoo Answers website never processes my email and password information when I submit it. I never get passed the sign in stage.

  2. Answers E-MAIL not accepting emails that contain links to Answer's questions!

    I tried to send an email to Answers about the serious problem about racist attacks and the email contains links to the questions. The email is not accepted because it "resembles spam" because of the links. Answers, you are having too many problems of late!

  4. 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.

  8. 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. 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 ?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    Planned  ·  Admin Amy responded

    Agreed. We’re working on a new moderation system, including appeals.

  14. 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…

    Vocês acham que crescimento das teorias da conspiração como 'O homem não foi à Lua', 'A terra é plana', etc, está fazendo alguém lucrar?
