I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  9. Provide better tools to deal with offenders who post obscene/perverse/repetitive "questions"

    Yahoo answers is flooded with deranged people with multiple accounts who post the same perverse and obscene questions for many times daily, at best just plain annoying, never listening to answers and just doing it again and again.

    Ex: ****** troll posting daily:
    https://answers.yahoo.com/dir/index?sid=396545163&rptabuse=1

    Or the repetitive pregnancy troll with multiple accounts, obsessively posting the same questions, not looking for answers, but just to annoy people by foolishness and posting in same questions by multiple accounts (Alone,Alex,Woody,Crash), also point-gaming to get points for this:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=technically+speaking+are+we+in+our+fathers&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b#q=site:answers.yahoo.com+technically+speaking+are+we+in+our+fathers

    Clearly reporting does nothing, as it only subtracts their points and they use point-gaming to…

  10. 19 sept 2017, please fix the autoscroll-problem

    When I open a question, only the top answer remains in place. the rest auto-scrolls down, making it impossible to answer or give thumbs up/down

  14. Bring back the menu of categories on the side. The home page is getting dominated by troll questions, I want to be able to skip those.

    Y!A used to be more user friendly, having the column of category choices. Now it's just the big mosh pit of all the questions, and unfortunately the ones that get the most traction and hang around the longest are often just **** from trollers. I want to skip past that noise. I'm a frequent answer contributor to Home & Garden, especially the Repairs/ Maintenance and DIY sections, I think I've genuinely helped a lot of people and want to continue doing that. But having to scroll through endless rabblerousing noise to find a H&G question so I can get to…

  15. Eliminate the Anonymous identity option

    Want to get rid of trolls? Simple: make them put their name on it - ANY name. But a name they have to register under, one that goes back to their Yahoo email.

  17. Remove the anonymous feature when participating in Answers.

    Users hide behind the anonymous feature to rant and insult. It is time to remone that feature.
