  1. 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

  2. don't put the answer-button above the answers already given

    For the site to work, we need to read the answers already given to determine whether it's worth adding our own answer.

  3. Remove the anonymous feature.

    At least on Politics. All it does is encourage trolls to post racist, sexist, violent, insulting comments and questions, all things Yahoo should be trying to make more difficult instead of easier.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. I set my spam limits to allow spam to stay in the box

    Allow for the user to adjust the volume of spam on their own without it being deleted immediately

  7. It looks like you're rolling out a new user interface in small stages. I'd like to compliment your developers on the second version...

    I left feedback about the first version earlier, but that seems to have disappeared. The problem with the first version (that I saw) was opening the answer editor as a popup on top of the question so one couldn't refer to it while composing an answer.

    The newer version seems to have fixed that on the original answer and is an order of magnitude nicer than anything I've previously seen on Yahoo! Answers--and I'm in my second decade as a user there.

    My suggestion is to keep that version (with a separate answer box) and use that as the basis…

  8. 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.

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

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

  14. 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 ?

  15. Contact list for a club

    I hate that you changed contacts to where you must print on Excel. I do not have Excel. When I tried to print, ALL my list, not the Club only members. Help!!!

  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. Change thumbs system

    The thumbs system is used by trolls to cause even more upset. A gang will give multiple TD's to people they don't like regardless of their answer. We should be able to give a thumbs up or leave it blank. I use the paranormal site but it is full of denialists who are there to laugh at people and their beliefs. If you police the sites, you could immediately ban these people. It would also help if you take away the "your report matters" pop up, as we all know it doesnt. Either that or do something about complaints. This…
