  1. why are Trolls allowed to post anonymously?

    the 'Post as Anonymous' Feature is nothing but Troll bait... it allows people to post question with no way of know who they are or how to stop them...
    It's bad enough "Block" doesn't apply the 'warning label any more, but now any one can hide behind that little spy mask and ask The Dumbest, or most offensive question; and it stays up until Admin Reacts

    We plan to allow the blocking of anonymous people in the future. Expect anonymous answering to go away, expect anonymous asking to stay.

    We are working on notifications to remind people to select a BA in the short term and reworking how BA works in the medium term.

  3. Please let users pick the "Relevance" menu....nothing that pops up is 'relevant' to me...

    I only want to see "newest" or "most recent", as my sole reason most days to pop in here is to help others by answering their questions.
    Some Brainiac decided to remove the date stamp thingie that always used to be on the questions....this is invaluable to we who spend a lot of time perusing. HUGE waste of time to read or answer a question that is years old...my favourite is when I chose a question and it's one I answered years ago, AND got best answer on!
    Do any of you actually act as users and try to manouver…

    Agreed. The “relevant” option no longer works. We are working on making it work again. I also agree that date stamps are an important part of the question.

  4. 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…

  5. Why aren't these questions deleting,all chatting about other users

    I should be able to delete these with my high reputation,so it seems reporting is not working very efficiently.

  7. Questions on community moderation / reporting

    1.Was the trusted rated system of community moderation phased out or still in place.Where users gained enough trust or reputation through accurate reporting of violating content on the site.When the system worked properly a single report could remove something.I had this ability myself.

    2.Is community moderation broken or broken at some capacity where now it takes many reports for something to be removed.It just seems
    ineffective as it stands now.

    3.Has anyone removed anything in the last 12 months,I sure haven't.

    I don't know if any admins will answer the first two questions,what do other users say on third.

  8. Please fix the Leader Boards in the Royalty threads.

    I have been the top best answerer in this thread for years. My name has disappeared. My account is still active, I answer questions every day--what has happened to my points?

    We are actively investigating the issue with the leaderboards. They should be up and running soon :)

  9. Get rid of repeat trolls

    Why not have negative points. As long as they have negative points they can’t ask any questions. Don’t reset the count. If someone has -3000 points, they’re not contributing to Answers. That will get rid of a lot of trolls who keeps asking the same question.

    Here’s James, the autistic troll who has a big behind fetish or a how strong does a woman have to be to lift him. Or how many times does he have to ask what’s wrong with this site.

  12. If you do maintenance, please shut down the site completely

    We can't edit our answers, can't comment, can't report... Better shut down the site completely and say in advance when (in UTC) it will be reactivated.

  13. Quit using HORRIFIC GRAMMAR

    "There's no answers" is grammatically incorrect. Whoever thinks it is correct deserves to have traumatic and horrific things happen to them!

  19. Remove the anonymous feature.

    At least on Politics. All it does is encourage trolls to post racist, sexist, violent, insulting comments and questions, all things Yahoo should be trying to make more *difficult* instead of easier.
