  1. Add a way to directly report user's accounts to Yahoo!

    I wish there was a way to directly report abusive users to Yahoo!, I really want to report this troll who keeps impersonating me to Yahoo!, he's been impersonating me since February, he has several accounts with my username and avatar.
    I've been trying to find a way to contact Yahoo! about it but I had no luck.

  5. Do something about repeat question trolls.

    Are you ever going to suspend trolls that keeps asking the same questions over and over again?

    https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=DTxHb4UAaa&t=k

    He has a butt fetish and keeps posting questions about butts:

    Does she have a ********?
    Is it normal for him to touch his sister’s butt.
    Why doesn’t his teacher say anything when he touched her butt.

    How about how many times he has asked how his mom can carry him.

  7. I should be able to block Anonymous posters

    Most (not all) Anonymous people are a waste of my time.

    Just like I should be able to block 'answered' questions, I should be able to block Anonymous.

    AND I should be able to filter out people would sign up within 1 month since most are again, wasting my time.

  8. Stop blocked trolls from still answering posts in the comment boxes of other people who answer.

    Trolls who have been blocked can still torment their blocker by using other peoples comment boxes. If they are blocked, they should be completely blocked. They should not be able to leave nasty comments in the comment boxes of genuine people who have answered a question in good faith.

  9. 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.

  13. Suggestion for an alternative to CAPTCHA!

    I've noticed that CAPTCHA codes are now required every time we post anything on Yahoo Answers. This is extremely annoying.

    I would suggest taking a tip from Reddit and give more active users a timeout burst when posting too much.

    For example, after they post three questions or answers in a row, a warning could appear stating "you are doing that too much ... please wait 3 minutes before posting again"

    After the user has received a certain amount of thumbs up on their content, they should then be allowed to post more content without a timeout. Let's say they…

  15. LET ME POST A QUESTION

    I have tried multiple browers and multiple devices. I've been trying to post a question for half of the day, doing the dang capchas, following all suggestions and then getting denied. This is unacceptable.

  19. 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…

  20. segnalazioni

    Tenete in considerazione chi segnala correttamente utenti che si comportano male, usate il rispetto dovuto agli utenti per bene e senza rprenderli in giro scrivendo nelle linee guida che "le vostre segnalazioni sono importanti" e poi i post osceni, schifosi, violenti, razzifascinazisti, istiganti all'odio, con bestemmie, con deliri ecc ( tipo quelli dei sigg. CRIS ROMA, Fabio alias lady Oscar, LEONE CALIBRO 24, FORESTA e altri) restano lì. E' vergogna che non ci sia un controllo serio, che rimangano per giorni post ributtanti, che possono essere letti dai bambini che, lo vogliate o no, stanno in Answers. E molte volte…
