ANSWERS new Suggestion Board

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. The Yahoo Products section is becoming a cesspool.

    There is a group that constantly posts X rated questions and answers. Marking as a violation rarely removes them.

  3. I am unable to edit the information on the about me section on my Q&A profile

    When I change the content, I save it. But then, when I go back to view it, it is not displaying the new information.

  4. What do you think of the following recommendation for a new point system here?

    Only keep a one year running total. All total points, best answers and percentages would only be based on the previous 12 months. New members do not receive any ranking until they have been here a year. There would be new levels developed based on the current spread of points for the past 12 months. Maybe give them names rather than numbers. All old points and a total would still be kept for historical purposes and shown in your profile.

  8. 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. Now that the Help Community Forum has closed move the resources to Yahoo Answwers.

    It is my understanding that nothing has been updated for over a year. For example Top Contributors, Top Answerers and the Leaderboard.

  16. stop giving me the error message that my question can't be posted and try again later.

    It's not an idea it's a plea. Almost every time I try to post a question I get an error message saying "Sorry, we couldn't post your question right now. Please try again later." Please fix this already. It's been going on for years now.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  20. Answers vanishing from questions

    I've noticed a few questions recently where I and a number of other users have answered questions, but returning to it later, all of the answers have vanished. I've received no email notification of any sort of moderation. The question still is there, but with no way to submit answers. What's going on here?

    Example of a question where people answered, yet no answers appear now:
