  2. Moving Questions to Other Categories

    I like the idea of moving questions to a better category to improve the nature of Yahoo Answer/Questions. But there are times where you have some people that spoil it for others. To keep people from moving questions malicious. Limit the how many times a single question could be moved, to maybe twice. The poster of the question may think that their question is in the appropriate category.

  4. Back button doesn't work properly on Chrome based browsers

    Hello,

    Back button doesn't restore correct offset in the list of questions on Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi...
    Same problem with Chrome on Android.

    I have to open every question in a new tab...

    It works on Firefox

    Tested on French version of website (fr.answers.yahoo.com)

    Thanks
    Ed

  5. Please block "questions" that consist of just 1 or 2 words

    It's a simple way to prevent abuse. Blocking all questions that are not in English could be done automatically too, but would take a lot more programming

  6. Just close answers.

    Just close the site and let it die peacefully or do something to make it better. Trolls are everywhere and answers seems to be encouraging them.

    Here’s a troll that keeps asking the same question. I reported it with the links for the questions. A few were removed and then restored.

  7. Unable to edit my answer, rate answers, read or post comments to answers.

    The links to edit my answer, thumbs up/down on my and other answers, and the comment link all appear and can be selected but nothing happens for an extended period; half an hour or more. I use Firefox on a desktop computer.

  14. Please stop the anonymous option on Yahoo Answer France.

    People who use the anonymous option often spend their time insulting other participants.

  17. Get rid of the new format or make it better

    Has anyone test out answering questions with the new format before rolling out the product?

    So the new format is to test people’s memory. What happened to the ability to see the question as I’m answering it. I tap answer and the answer box pops up but the question disappears. Have you tried answering a math question without seeing the question as you’re answering it. Or a question with multiple parts and you can’t see the question when you’re answering.

  18. 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?

  19. 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 ?
