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. 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…

  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.

  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.

  10. 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?

  11. Add a "HOT ROD" Section to Automotive group

    By adding a "Hot Rod" section you can address questions about engine swaps, electrical issues, fabrication/welding and other areas that are specific to building non-stock vehicles.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
