  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. 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…

  4. Please remove this "minimum 15 character limit", or a least reduce it.

    What's with this "minimum 15 character limit" in the answers now?! Please remove this or make it less than 15. It will NOT deter spammers, it will ENCOURAGE them. People will just spam punctuation in order to give a short, one-word answers. Also not all of us want to be wordy with answers. Find another way to deal with spammers, not take away the freedom of those who legitimately answer questions. Remove please. And while we are here, please also get rid of that hideous reCAPTCHA.

  5. 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.

  6. Level 7 people should not have to use reCAPCHAs!

    Level 7 people are serious about supporting people on Yahoo Answers. We should not be penalized by the constant reCAPCHA irritation.

  7. Eliminate the block option. I understand the frustration of dealing with stalkers and trolls, remove those accounts.

    Frustration with trolls, stalkers and that immature is certainly real. But their existence degrades the experience. Rather than block them, silply eliminate them.

  10. Bring back voting for best answer after a period of time passes with no best answer

    Too many answers never get a best answer. Voting should be brought back if no best answer has been selected after 6 weeks or so.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. Need a feature to report an entire account

    It would be helpful to have a feature where one can report an entire account, instead of particular questions and answers.

    Spammers often spam the same questions over and over, and post cheat answers just to get points so they can spam their questions again. Why should users have to spend their time reporting individual questions and answers over and over when the whole accounts needs a review?

    An example account is below - should users really have to report every question and every answer on this account?

    Earl:

    - repeated questions
    https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=JPT45ZUPEMWRDQT7SI44VGSJWF&t=g

    - cheat answers ('huh' to every question) …

  14. Moving Questions to Other Categories

    I like the idea of moving questions to a better category to improve the nature of Yahoo Answer/Questions. But there are times where you have some people that spoil it for others. To keep people from moving questions malicious. Limit the how many times a single question could be moved, to maybe twice. The poster of the question may think that their question is in the appropriate category.

  16. Just close answers.

    Just close the site and let it die peacefully or do something to make it better. Trolls are everywhere and answers seems to be encouraging them.

    Here’s a troll that keeps asking the same question. I reported it with the links for the questions. A few were removed and then restored.

  18. Please block "questions" that consist of just 1 or 2 words

    It's a simple way to prevent abuse. Blocking all questions that are not in English could be done automatically too, but would take a lot more programming
