  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  4. People want to delete their OWN questions. LET US

    It is so wrong that we cannot delete things we have posted. I had not idea I couldn’t delete my questions till it was too late. Anonymity means nothing. Questions asked are personal to the person who asked them and should have EVERY RIGHT to remove them. I can’t stress enough how upset I am with yahoo and the lack of available customer service and now the inability to delete our own questions. Please consider the people using your product and not just your stats or whatever it is that inclined you to remove the delete button. Till this problem…

  5. 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 ?

  7. 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.

  8. Please stop these fake reporters from taking away all my points for nothing.

    Please stop these people from taking all my points on none violations. Its unfair and I have a right to my answers. Im not cursing anyone. Just posting. And I come back and 40 points are stolen I call it. ITS WRONG YAHOO!

  9. 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. Suggestion for an alternative to CAPTCHA!

    I've noticed that CAPTCHA codes are now required every time we post anything on Yahoo Answers. This is extremely annoying.

    I would suggest taking a tip from Reddit and give more active users a timeout burst when posting too much.

    For example, after they post three questions or answers in a row, a warning could appear stating "you are doing that too much ... please wait 3 minutes before posting again"

    After the user has received a certain amount of thumbs up on their content, they should then be allowed to post more content without a timeout. Let's say they…

  13. LET ME POST A QUESTION

    I have tried multiple browers and multiple devices. I've been trying to post a question for half of the day, doing the dang capchas, following all suggestions and then getting denied. This is unacceptable.

  14. Update the block feature ...

    I suggest you update the blocked feature in the following ways.

    If you block someone:

    *You can't answer their questions, comment on answers.
    *You can't access or view their profile
    *You cannot access or view their questions

    It makes zero sense allowing users to block you but also allowing them to answer your questions. On top of that if you do block someone, not allowing them to even view your questions can prevent them from abusing the reporting system.

  18. segnalazioni

    Tenete in considerazione chi segnala correttamente utenti che si comportano male, usate il rispetto dovuto agli utenti per bene e senza rprenderli in giro scrivendo nelle linee guida che "le vostre segnalazioni sono importanti" e poi i post osceni, schifosi, violenti, razzifascinazisti, istiganti all'odio, con bestemmie, con deliri ecc ( tipo quelli dei sigg. CRIS ROMA, Fabio alias lady Oscar, LEONE CALIBRO 24, FORESTA e altri) restano lì. E' vergogna che non ci sia un controllo serio, che rimangano per giorni post ributtanti, che possono essere letti dai bambini che, lo vogliate o no, stanno in Answers. E molte volte…
