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.11th ranked

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?30th ranked
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.36th ranked
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 ?14th ranked

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 is fixed I will not be using that feature. I put info up that people who know me could know I said it and I wanted a one time deal of posting and deleting a question when I got an answer. This NEEDS to be resolved I cannot stress this enough. It’s unfare, not safe, and overall selfish of Yahoo to claim our words and keep them up taking away our rights to remove them. Yahoo you are violating our privacy by not allowing us to remove info WE put up.

There is a group that constantly posts X rated questions and answers. Marking as a violation rarely removes them.57th ranked
Although I allowed the emails in my Yahoo answers profile and saved the settings, nobody is able to write me.
I ask the question on here, because of I don't where write you for this type of problem.
I thank you in advance.
I should be able to delete these with my high reputation,so it seems reporting is not working very efficiently.

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?33rd ranked
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.26th ranked

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
I nave noticed that the thumbs down rating I have given some answers disappears and I have to continually check and make sure the ratings remain posted. The answerers are trouble-causing trolls who use Answers to rant and attack and post lies, not give truthful, researched replies to questions.57th ranked
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.49th ranked
