My Yahoo archive

To our loyal users of My Yahoo,

Our goal for My Yahoo is to give you a way to organize the web around your diverse set of interests. Your passion for My Yahoo inspires us to work hard to make it better everyday, and we’re just getting started. We’ve seen — and heard — the impassioned response about the revamped My Yahoo. You’ve shared lots of great feedback, and we want you to know we’re doing more than just listening. Here’s an update on your most popular requests:

  • Scoreboard app – Your settings from the classic My Yahoo (like the teams you want to follow) will soon show in the new experience.
  • My Portfolio app (Oct 9, update) – You are now able to see multiple portfolios at once by clicking on the All Portfolios drop down.
  • Location settings for weather and news – Every time you visit My Yahoo, we try to detect your current location and give you local weather and news stories. If you don’t see the right city, you can change your location and save it for quick access. As soon as we have a more permanent solution we’ll make sure to let you know.
  • Theme backgrounds – We offer a wide range of themes to help you make your page more personal. You can change your theme at any time by selecting “Choose Themes” at the top right of your screen. We’ve included a “Classic My” theme for those who prefer the colors of the old version of My Yahoo.

Once these updates happen, we’ll let you know right here in this forum… and we’re not done yet – more improvements are on the way. So keep the feedback coming!

Thanks to each and every one of you.

Sincerely,

The My Yahoo Team

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

  1. Your responses to homepage

    How much feed back do you need to change back to the old yahoo homepage. Most seem to want the old layout. Including me.

    So far your responses indicate: *********, yahoo user.

    • Redesign Themes!

      The Themes for MyYahoo page are awful. I much prefer the old version as far as Themes go. At least they were simplistic and pleasing to the page. These new ones are just plain ugly and unappealing. Please consider listening to everyone that uses MyYahoo (or those that are left) and make changes.

      • The new MY HOMEPAGE doesn't work at ALL and there is no way to keep great old one.

        My yahoo page doesn't not work AT ALL. Since I depend on its calendar, I have been scrabbling to get my appointments that were on Yahoo Calendar......... now, I have to write them down. Furious!
        Nothing works on it AT ALL. New or old. There is NO FIX just a
        Sorry for the inconvenience.... refresh....... come back later.....
        total ****!

        • Mail - no grouping - cant respond to person I want to easily

          bring back old email or I will switch to gmail after 20 years at this address. It is a pain! Today having issues with search through mail where I can open one email in the search group but then it doesn't open another. Have to close it out and start all over. Pain in the a*&^%!

            • I lost all of the news connected to the stocks in my portfolio. How is this new format better. Hate it. Bring back the old version.

              • Very disappointed. I prefer my old My Yahoo page. Can't get local news or weather to stick. Keeps switching to a city 100s of miles away!

                Also can't see totals for My Portfolios. I don't want to have to click three pages away to find the total value for a portfolio and I'm not as interested in individual stock's movement. Why can't I see a total like my old page had?

                • What's up with Current Location and why can't you seem to fix it?

                  Why are you having so much trouble getting the Current Location feature to work ALL THE TIME. You were doing well for a couple of weeks, but today (1/4/14) I'm back to living in Sunnyvale, CA, where it's a heck of a lot warmer than where I'm actually located. Obviously, the Current Location also impacts my Movie Favorites, too. Please do something to fix it PERMANENTLY, or you're going to continue to lose more and more people to Google.

                  • WHY can't I find My YAHOO Bookmarks even though I've downloaded the "new" toolbar and re-installed it any number of times, now?!!

                    I've reloaded & re-"imported" my bookmarks from the HTML folder under My Documents in Windows (I'm still running Vista) time & time again, have tried to follow the advice & instructions of other users here, but in what I take to be the "new" toolbar in Google Chrome (I've been used to using Opera for my preferred web browser for about the past year now), I STILL CAN'T FIND THE DAMNED ICON FOR IT!!!! ):-E What gives? It BURNS ME TO HELL that I've seemingly lost forever now all of the several HUNDRED web-links I've so carefully built up over…

                    • Fix the weather section. . . giving different city instead of my location & can't change it

                      Don't try to fix what isn't broken!!! Fix the things that are. My weather is giving me the weather for some unknown other city. I never changed anything so it must be you screwing everything up. Ready to leave Yahoo unless you straighten things up & then leave well enough alone. If you can't give me my correct info some other site will!

                            Bring it back. There is no option to show your Yahoo Fantasy Sports. The boxes are larger than My Yahoo so you can not fit as much on the screen. Wasted space.

                                I'm informed my personally-designed homepage is to be "upgraded" to contain content I neither want nor will use. This will be a "downgrade." Yahoo has become less and less dependable recently, and this "upgrade" is just one more example. And I seriously doubt that this comment will be read by anyone at Yahoo who really cares what I think anyway. YOU said I could design my own homepage. I did. Now you're taking it away.

                                      They do this on purpose. Just be up front with us and let us decide if we want it or not. You sneak it in.

                                        • Why not just let us go back to our old homepages?

                                          Why can we not go back to our old homepages? Everything you claim to have done to correct the "new" Yahoo is not true. I still get only the scores that you decide to give me on the scoreboard, none of my favorites either sports or teams show up. I know that whoever designed this page is deeply invested in it and thinks it is great, but it is NOT. I can only assume from the lack of response to all of the complaints, that Yahoo truly does not care about the users and is not concerned when people go…
