  1. 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.

    Agreed. We’re working on a new moderation system, including appeals.

  2. 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 ?

  3. Unable to sign in to Yahoo Answers

    When I try to sign in, I am redirected back to the sign in page after my password is entered. Meaning the Yahoo Answers website never processes my email and password information when I submit it. I never get passed the sign in stage.

  4. 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?

  5. Please, allow an unlimited word limit for typing in the mobile version

    If I write an answer with my PC and want to change a word or a letter with my mobile, it shows me red numbers "-321".

  6. 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:

  8. Answers E-MAIL not accepting emails that contain links to Answer's questions!

    I tried to send an email to Answers about the serious problem about racist attacks and the email contains links to the questions. The email is not accepted because it "resembles spam" because of the links. Answers, you are having too many problems of late!

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Answers disappear after editing.

    For the past year or so my answers have intermittently not been visible to the community. It has taken me some time to realize that the disappearing act only happens after editing and resubmitting.If you submit an answer and don't edit then it can be seen by all. However if later you do some editing the answer then disappears from view for everybody except the poster.

  18. Spam Filter hides answers after small edits (after initial post)

    Spam filter is hiding answers after a small correction of typo or errors.
    So after initially posting an answer , I go back to the answer and edit it by correcting
    small typos. Then, the answer disappears from the site.
    I can still see the answer, but the answer count goes down
    and other people I know on the site can no longer see my
    answer.

  20. Messenger still appears as an option for getting notifications under "Preferences"

    In the Answers section, when you click to edit your user preferences, go to "Privacy Settings" and you will see an option to Answers Community Can contact me via Yahoo Messenger

    since Oath discontinued Yahoo Messenger, this seems to be one spot that QA missed
