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. 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…

  4. Please let us choose the section before the question get posted

    Oftentimes, the question goes to a section the asker don't want.

  7. Tools/features to help users deal with trolls

    Here are some tools/features to help users deal with trolls and trolling:

    - Allow users to block other users so that they don't see their posted questions or answers. There are some troll users here that I know will never ask a legitimate question, and that will only post abusive answers . . . for example, there are users only ever post racist questions. A feature hiding their posted questions, answers, and comments would be nice - if I can't see it, then it won't bother me.

    - Allow users to hide their questions and answers from others users, so…

  8. Get rid of the question moving feature

    The level seven question moving ability has been abused to death and people with too much free time on their hands are ruining many peoples yahoo answer experience. People shouldn't have to waste hours and hours having to battle with abusive users moving questions for who knows whatever reasons. This feature is driving away users and making the site miserable. If anything let people move their own questions but don't give other people power to move other peoples questions.

  11. 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?

  13. A recent problem has developed that needs attention...

    It appears that Yahoo Answers has been infiltrated by a bunch of people whose only agenda is to disrupt the site. Their username is nothing but a scrambled bunch of letters, as are their answers.

    I have counted as many as 25 of these on the same question as opposed to less than 5 answers from normal members.

    I've tried reporting them individually, but there are too many. This is becoming a serious situation - I believe it will drive people away or make Yahoo Answers unusable.

  14. Fix the search section. I cannot find answers with certian subjects/keywords

    Fix the search element so people can search for subjects using keywords. I know people are asking questions, but they do not show when I look for them

  16. remove all Anonymous post, and stop them from posting.

    remove all Anonymous post, and stop them from posting. Example: Dining Out > Thailand > Nakhon Ratchasima - Post: How do you think Jesus felt when the Romans sodomized him in front of people?
    It has nothing to do with the topic, and this Anonymous person post all over the same type of ridiculousness.

  18. Let me use my Contact groups, let me forward pictures and cartoons and put back auto saving to draft

    You took away valuable functions that were in the "old" Mail. Please put back the use of Contact Groups, the automatic sending things to drafts and allow me to forward pictures and cartoons (which I cannot do under this new mail).

  20. Askers should be Rewarded points for asking questions that get a large amount of answers and follows

    I have posted a question that got over 1000 answers and 20+ follows before and instead of getting rewarded for that I got 3 points deducted out of my account for asking a question. Askers should be getting rewarded for sparking large conversations and interests on the site like that, not punished for it. Answers with over 30 answers and follows should reward the asker with a certain amount of points. Something like the asker earns 1 point for every answer they get after 30 answers and 5 points for every follower to the question. So if the asker gets…
