  1. Allow us to be able to add as many categories as we want

    If we were able to pick as many categories as we want it would be easier to get responses, because some questions fit into more than one category.

  2. I should be able to go straight to a reply I get on my comments, why did Yahoo change that ?

    Yahoo would be more respected if they quit messing with what works on their site ! When someone reply's to my comment, I used to be able to go straight to that reply. I think Yahoo is trying to discourage people (or just the Right) from using Yahoo ?

  5. 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…

  6. Tools/features to help users deal with trolls

    Here are some tools/features to help users deal with trolls and trolling:


    • Allow users to block other users so that they don't see their posted questions or answers. There are some troll users here that I know will never ask a legitimate question, and that will only post abusive answers . . . for example, there are users only ever post racist questions. A feature hiding their posted questions, answers, and comments would be nice - if I can't see it, then it won't bother me.


    • Allow users to hide their questions and answers from others users, so that they…

  8. Please let us choose the section before the question get posted

  9. Fix the search section. I cannot find answers with certian subjects/keywords

    Fix the search element so people can search for subjects using keywords. I know people are asking questions, but they do not show when I look for them

  11. Stop false advertising

    I am so angry I cancelled my yahoo account. I have used yahoo for years but will never use it again and will make the suggestion to family and friends and coworkers to do the same. I am sick of the website you refer people to that turn out to be the opposite of what you claimed. Look into the people finder websites you have a big list of them and you claim the first look up is free. That is on you. Gmail here I come.

  20. The Yahoo Products section is becoming a cesspool.

    There is a group that constantly posts X rated questions and answers. Marking as a violation rarely removes them.
