(US) Yahoo Games Desktop Redesign

Dear Yahoo Gamers,

We’re makings some changes to the layout of our Games home page and the game pages themselves.

Let us know what you think about the layout and performance. We’d like to hear what you like and don’t like about the new look:

  • On the game pages, how is the layout and the game play itself?
  • Some games will now resize to however large you make your browser window, for a more immersive game experience.
  • On the front page, our new tile layout puts more games right in front of you.
  • When you choose a game on the front page, it gives you a wide variety of information about the game to help you decide if you would like to play that game.
  • The left-hand icons that represent “My Games” now appear on game pages as well as the home page.
  • The right hand “Recommended Games” has suggestions for you based on previous game play.
  • Games with mobile versions offer links to those platforms from the web-based game.

Thanks for your feedback!

Best Regards,
Yahoo! Product Support

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on the Yahoo Games site re-design!

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.

  1. I don't know what the heck you've done but this new layout is absolute garbage. And where the heck did "My Games" go?

    Give back the "My Games" list. What the heck did you do with that? I have exactly six games that I play on a daily basis and now you expect me to go searching for them all over the place? Go back to the original layout for this page and get rid of all this garbage you've got going on now.

      Thank you again for your patience while we investigated why the “My Games” list was either not appearing or not updating.

      I hope to be able to update you very soon with the resolution.

          • The changing game images on the right side of the screen slows gameplay down and is distracting.

            Also, it feels awkward to play the games on the left side of the screen instead of right in the middle. Can we have an option to remove the images?

                      Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad to hear the format of Yahoo Games is fine for you.

                      Rummy 500 is owned and operated by GameDesire and hosted by Yahoo. As such, GameDesire sets the terms of service for that game.

                      I look forward to being able to announce new parlor games in addition to those we have already released:

                      Thank you again for stopping by to share your thoughts!

                    • The ad's cover half the games, there for you cant see the game or how to play it.

                      remover the ad that cover the game because you cant play the games if the game is covered by ads

                        I’m sorry you are experiencing this difficulty. We are trying to find the cause, but have been unable to gather enough information to replicate the issue.

                        I hope you will take a few minutes to tell us more about which game you’re trying to play and what ad is encroaching on the game.

                        Also, any additional information you can give us about your screen size, resolution, etc. would be helpful!

                        I hope to get this resolved for you soon!

                      • It does not list the games i have been playing so I don't have to go through all the other and waste my time when I want to play now!!!

                        This is **** !!!!!! When we write something in the above space then where the **** do we press the button to send it to you???????????????

                        • In the past the games I played most often had easy links. Now I have to click through multiple levels & menues. Not an improvement!

                          This design is a perfect "before" picture. Now, come up with an "after" version which improves the layout.

                              Previously I reported the “My Games” list was missing or failing to update due to a short outage. It turns out we did resolve that problem, but another was lurking about.

                              If you are still experiencing issues with the “My Games” list, you’ll be happy to know we are in the process of fixing it!

                              Thanks for your patience while we chased down the problem!

Any idea when I can expect them, it's been weeks. Stop re-designing and add more staff to assist issues.

                                  We’d like to help escalate your issue with slotomania support. Can you please verify that you filed a ticket with them using the same email address you used to post this feedback (we have it, please don’t post it publicly)? Also, about what date did you attempt to reach support?

                                  Lastly, did you receive any kind of case or reference number?

                                  I hope we can help!

                                    • Why can't i delete games from My Games?

                                      Have games under "My Games" that i tried and did not like. Have tried removing them but they are persistent and will not go away.

                                        Hi there,

                                        We are experiencing difficulty with the My Games list either not appearing, or not updating appropriately.

                                        I hope to have an update for you very soon!
