  1. The news feed currently allows users to omit subject matter they don't care to see. Can we get an option to omit all from a certain source?

    When I delete a news story it asks if I want to permanently stop seeing based on subject matter. I would like an option there to delete the news agency providing the article in the first place. I don't really want to see any more stories from the Huffington Post. If I want to buy a tabloid I'll go to Walmart.

  3. Posting of news which requires a login or paid subscription to read stincks!

    Please make it obvious which content requires an additional login or needs to be paid for. The Orlando Sentinel, for example, won't let me

  6. Give my the choice of what time zone I want the start times for my favorite teams listed. Why is EST the default?

    Allow the user to choose what time zone they want listed for the start times of their sports teams. I live in CA so why can't I tell "MY" Yahoo to list start times in Pacific time? Why is the default EST?

  7. What have you done to the news format

    I started reading the news this morning as I alway do and discovered that when I read an article the links surrounding the article are not news, in fact it's total rubbish, the only way I can read more news is to push the back button on my browser...who is making the format for the news? Seriously it's is getting harder to use the yahoo site.
    Why group rubbish articles with serious news and have not links back to the news, it just makes no sense what so ever.
    Bring back the old format we had a few years ago,…

  8. Quit auto playing videos!!!!!!!!!

    I very much dislike how you're auto playing videos without my approval, especially on the homepage AND after watching a video and I decide to read the article and comments. VERY RUDE and INCONSIDERATE. The grass is sometimes greener on the other side(a.k.a another website).

  9. Get Rid of those Offensive, Ugly Dr. OZ ads with the moving body parts. They are so distracting and offensive.

    Get rid of the offensive Dr. Oz Ads which are ugly, distracting and offensive or at least put them at the bottom of the page so we do not have to see them.

  10. Please stop the annoying adds containing distracting video.

    Please stop the annoying adds containing video that is so distracting that I am unable to use my yahoo website. The current Dr. Oz adds are so annoying that I would not use any product from that source. The constant repeating is not necessary!

  11. News Articles

    Stop posting news from sources, allowing only paying subscribers to read the full article.

    Your giving them free advertising, frustrating to read.

  12. Remove automatic detection of the location of the weather. It fails to detect. The weather does remember other cities entered. Go back to

    remove the auto detect for weather location. It fails every time. Allow the user to select a default from their weather list. If the user does not know where they are, then they can use there energy to find out and that would be well for them. Lots of people actually know where they are these days.

  13. Stop Trying to Push Yahoo's Political Views on to Readers

    The articles from Huffington Post and Salon are highly offensive to those who do not agree with Yahoo!'s liberal viewpoints. Please either provide an equal number of articles of differing viewpoints or take a neutral position. Stop trying to accelerate the decay of our society.

    I am about fed up enough to cancel my Yahoo! account and stop visiting your site. I am quite sure that I am not alone!!!

  15. Synch Sports and other Times to User set Time Zone

    You always list sporting event times as East Coast. How about letting the user set what Time Zone they are displayed in? Oh and bring back the clock on my Homepage.

  17. where do you get off changing my search engine every time I start a browser? You guys have lost it.

    So along with all the rest of the idiotic changes you have made in the last year and a bit, now you just reset my search engine every time? I don't think I can stick with this one. I can't get you out of the menu-bar, and i can't get you to stop changing my search engine. You guys don't understand the internet, do you?

  18. Make it possible to contact someone when all else fails. Help is no help

    When help is not help, and does not address the issue, there needs to be a way to contact Yahoo for help. This feedback does not work.
    My iPad is showing a different, incorrect, and impossible to edit home page on my.yahoo. Got it fixed on iPhone & iMac after I was forced to make a password change. The iPad does not recognize my new password

  19. I hate hate hate the new My Yahoo page. There is a whole block for ads, but suddenly there's a bar up at the top of the page with another ad

    Why is there suddenly a bar at the top of the page with an ad...but it's cut off? Still taking up space, still an annoyance, but not totally visible. I hate your new page. Please stop telling us that you want our feedback, but then telling us not to tell you we hate the new design.
