  3. Get rid of the question moving feature

    The level seven question moving ability has been abused to death and people with too much free time on their hands are ruining many peoples yahoo answer experience. People shouldn't have to waste hours and hours having to battle with abusive users moving questions for who knows whatever reasons. This feature is driving away users and making the site miserable. If anything let people move their own questions but don't give other people power to move other peoples questions.

  4. Fix the "About Me" section in the Q&A profiles

    This has been broken for far too long and nothing has been done about it.

    When I proceed to edit my "about me" on the Q&A Profile, I edit the text, then press save.

    But when I go back to it, it has not updated the about me with the new information. It has the previous content.

    This should have been fixed within 24 hours of it being reported initially. I want it fixed immediately.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…
