    • Loooong time Yahoo! user...Not a fan of the new interface. 2 thumbs down unfort

      I'm a Yahoo! fan and I appreciate the need for progress and improvement. But this a step back in multiple areas...

      What happened to this functionality?

      -Can no longer delete emails from MyYahoo screen. Was this to force us to go to Mail to view the ads?

      -No hover-over on news articles

      - No hover-over on stocks to get additional info or latest news

      -Sports scores shows many teams other than my preferences. Qunnipiac and Iona? That's important to someone, just not me.

      -Layout is cumbersome. Was this to extend page view times and improve marketing scores? This will likely…

            • Get rid of the ad in the upper right corner. It is very distracting on the page and I am offended by some of the content that flashed by.

              • Bring back the old version.

                Bring back the old version. There was nothing wrong with it. This one has so many big boxes that you can't even concentrate on the writing. All those things you are bringing back in this format are still lost. Just bring back the old one.
                Why does the weather keep changing from your town to the whole state? I can't even figure out what my weather is. I have to keep looking for where it moved to.
                Why can't I choose what I want on top? I added some news and you put it over the weather. I had to…

                  Simply put, it STINKS !!
                  I have no idea how you can say this is an improvement. I also don't understand, after receiving so many complaints from loyal users, you continue to keep this new format. Personally, I am looking for an alternative, after years of being happy with the way my home page looked with My Yahoo, you have now changed it into Your Yahoo.

                  • HOW CAN WE IMPROVE YAHOO!?

                    You say this at the beginning of the feedback yet you don't listen! You can improve Yahoo by listening and addressing all these negative complaints about your changes. Then suck it up, realize it was a bad idea, apologize and change it back, then send your senior advisors back to school to learn customer relations so you don't make these serious errors again!!! And I sure hope your advertisers are taking note so they can pull the plug on your funding until you start listening!

                        • I hate everything about the new "My"Yahoo.

                          After spending considerable time getting the content and the layout of the old MyYahoo to my liking, Yahoo has decided to completely rearrange everything. This is no longer MyYahoo, it has become YourYahoo. Yahoo should listen to what their customers want instead of telling them what they want. Completely awful. This is a huge step in the wrong direction. It's time to short Yahoo stock. They've become a company that is totally out of touch with reality, and that has given up caring about their customers.

                            • After over 15 years of MyYahoo! being my home page, effective today it will not be.

                              After over 15 years of MyYahoo! being my home page, effective today. You say "faster", really? Is that the reason for the change? I never had a problem with the speed before. Terrible. Visited links don't even show in my browser's visited link color. Yahoo is the new AOL.

                                I've now gone to MSN.com for my home page. Why leave after 20 YEARS with you?

                                You just ruined what worked well. You never considered what your customers want or need!

                                New My Yahoo does NOT work, looks awful, cannot customize it, wastes screen space (on my 27 inch monitor, that's BAD!), gives WRONG information which I cannot fix!

                                FIX the problem: just suck it up and GO BACK to the OLD My Yahoo.

                                I LOVED IT; everything worked, looked good, had "tool-tips" for news & stocks, etc.

                                MSN is bad, but it is much better than the new My…

Was that what you were going for? It seems like some of the complaints that you are receiving could have been anticipated. I have not been using My Yahoo Movies on my homepage due to frequent screen freezes, and will probably not even try to use it again. I also prefer MapQuest driving directions even though they are not always perfect (what is?). I also dislke the overal look of the homepage. I…

                                    • I hate the new home page..looks awful, hard to use and frankly I want my old home page back.

                                      The layout of the new home page sucks. What were you thinking when you designed this piece of ... I want my old home page back, it was easy to use and pleasing to the eye...I cannot stand this home page and may have to look elsewhere.

                                        • Bring back old format for stock portfolio's. Without it I rarely go to MyYahoo anymore. You might as well call it YourYahoo
