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 visit our community support forum or 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. 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.

  2. Being Blocked.

    Spend minutes composing an answer to a Anonymous Question.
    When Submitting, find out that the person has blocked me.

    Blocking should not be allowed when posting as Anonymous.
    OR the removal of the Answer/Reply Box, as when the person post in their account name.

  3. Indicate questions that have been viewed or opened in the browser.

    So when we open a question in any category or in our activity page the link colour should change from blue to purple.That signifies which questions have been opened or viewed in the browser.

  4. 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

  5. Filter by No Answer

    I used to be able to filter by no answer and I don't see it. When answering math there is likely 1 answer and is redundant to go through the effort when it's already solved.

  6. 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?

    Agreed. This will be done when the profiles are updated. Users will be able to have a profile picture and name separate from their Yahoo Account.

    You should be able to update your picture by updating your Yahoo Account again. This was fixed.

  8. 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…

  10. 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

  11. Don't allow level 7 non askers to edit categories

    Allowing level 7 users to move questions that aren't their own is a bad idea and it's open to feature abuse. This is already happening with questions belonging in the Yahoo!Answers sections being placed in Other- Yahoo Products.
