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.

  1. Please either FIX or REMOVE the reCAPCHAs

    Keywords: Bugs or Erros, General Feedback

    The reCAPCHAs do not work correctly. At times I get asked to make up to 3-4 different verifications BEFORE it allows me to post my answer. I simply cannot go through this frustration for each and every math question I want to answer!!

    Additionally, the quality of the tiled pictures is SO POOR, you can hardly tell what some of them are.

    Please FIX or REMOVE the reCAPCHAs feature. If it was added as an improvement, it is most certainly NOT.

    I know it won't make any difference to Yahoo!Answers whether or not you…

  2. Unable to post answers to questions

    There appears to be a serious glitch in that users are unable to post answers to questions. It's still possible to post comments to existing answers and to fill out the answer box but the answer will not post and the notice "Sorry, we were unable to proceed with your request. Please try again." is consistently returned.

    Other users have noticed this as well.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  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 ?

  10. 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.

  11. Yahoo Answers keeps on asking me to log in

    Yahoo Answers keeps on asking me to log on, yet every time I try to log on it will not allow me to, even though I'm logged on to my email and Yahoo News.

  12. FIX ANSWERS TOO MANY BUGS

    Answers does not let me stay signed in--every question leads to signing in and the ReCaptcha does not work. The report abuse button is not working and the thumbs-down choices do not stay counted.

  14. Upgrade the Yahoo Answers' server!

    I had to actually stop using Yahoo Answers on the Safari browser because it caused my computer to make the motor run really loudly.

    I switched to the Firefox browser and now even Firebox is giving me an error message on the top on my screen
    "A webpage is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do? "
    With the options [stop it] or [wait]

    Cleary your server is atrociously bad. You need to upgrade this to something that isn't slowing down the browsers. You are not a small company and I expect better!

  16. 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…

  19. Fix a bug in Latest Version of Yahoo - new tab opens with about:blank when you click on messages.

    Hey Yahoo. Fix your latest version. When clicking on any message a new tab opens with about:blank. Can't find any setting that will fix the problem. Problem started today after overnight windows update. Classic Yahoo doesn't have the problem. Please Fix the Bug.
