  1. FIX ANSWERS TOO MANY BUGS

    Answers does not let me stay signed in--every question leads to signing in and the ReCaptcha does not work. The report abuse button is not working and the thumbs-down choices do not stay counted.

  4. Upgrade the Yahoo Answers' server!

    I had to actually stop using Yahoo Answers on the Safari browser because it caused my computer to make the motor run really loudly.

    I switched to the Firefox browser and now even Firebox is giving me an error message on the top on my screen
    "A webpage is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do? "
    With the options [stop it] or [wait]

    Cleary your server is atrociously bad. You need to upgrade this to something that isn't slowing down the browsers. You are not a small company and I expect better!

  6. Can you arrange it so that when you update your email address on Yahoo that group alerts stop being delivered to the removed address please?

    Can you arrange it so that when you update your email address on Yahoo that group alerts stop being delivered to the removed address please?

    Updated my email address on Yahoo account and deleted the old one. Yet I still receive Yahoo Group email alerts at the removed address! It was be nice if the new email address was now being used for correspondence updates instead of the old one which has been removed.

  8. 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

  10. Blocking should not be allowed when posting as Anonymous

    Spend minutes composing an answer to a Anonymous Question.
    When Submitting, find out that the person has blocked me.

    Blocking should not be allowed when posting as Anonymous.
    OR the removal of the Answer/Reply Box, as when the person post in their account name.

    Agreed. This will be fixed in a moderation update in the medium term.

  12. A recent problem has developed that needs attention...

    It appears that Yahoo Answers has been infiltrated by a bunch of people whose only agenda is to disrupt the site. Their username is nothing but a scrambled bunch of letters, as are their answers.

    I have counted as many as 25 of these on the same question as opposed to less than 5 answers from normal members.

    I've tried reporting them individually, but there are too many. This is becoming a serious situation - I believe it will drive people away or make Yahoo Answers unusable.

  13. Have more options for replying.

    Please let there be the option to reply to questions that are even 10 years old. It actually doesn't really matter if it is a decade old, as a question is a question. And, time flies by so much anyway.
    I'm on level 6, so maybe it is available on level 7. I doubt it.

  15. Askers should be Rewarded points for asking questions that get a large amount of answers and follows

    I have posted a question that got over 1000 answers and 20+ follows before and instead of getting rewarded for that I got 3 points deducted out of my account for asking a question. Askers should be getting rewarded for sparking large conversations and interests on the site like that, not punished for it. Answers with over 30 answers and follows should reward the asker with a certain amount of points. Something like the asker earns 1 point for every answer they get after 30 answers and 5 points for every follower to the question. So if the asker gets…

  17. Spam Filter hides answers after small edits (after initial post)

    Spam filter is hiding answers after a small correction of typo or errors.
    So after initially posting an answer , I go back to the answer and edit it by correcting
    small typos. Then, the answer disappears from the site.
    I can still see the answer, but the answer count goes down
    and other people I know on the site can no longer see my
    answer.

  18. There is a glitch with the thumbs down rating

    I nave noticed that the thumbs down rating I have given some answers disappears and I have to continually check and make sure the ratings remain posted. The answerers are trouble-causing trolls who use Answers to rant and attack and post lies, not give truthful, researched replies to questions.

  19. Answers vanishing from questions

    I've noticed a few questions recently where I and a number of other users have answered questions, but returning to it later, all of the answers have vanished. I've received no email notification of any sort of moderation. The question still is there, but with no way to submit answers. What's going on here?

    Example of a question where people answered, yet no answers appear now:

  20. What do you think of the following recommendation for a new point system here?

    Only keep a one year running total. All total points, best answers and percentages would only be based on the previous 12 months. New members do not receive any ranking until they have been here a year. There would be new levels developed based on the current spread of points for the past 12 months. Maybe give them names rather than numbers. All old points and a total would still be kept for historical purposes and shown in your profile.
