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

  3. The whole point of "MyYahoo" was that it was custom to what the user wanted. this is not even close.

    All of the personalization from the old version is gone now. I don't want baseball scores. I want scores and schedules from the teams I selected. Terrible, "F" on the change

  4. Fix your location function for weather and movies so that it actually defaults to the location I set.

    Fix your location function for weather and movies so that it actually defaults to the location I set.I don't need weather for a place on the other side of Texas. I don't need movie times for California either. This has been a problem for a long time.
    I enter the location i want and continually reverts back to whatever it was before.

  7. Stop trying to figure out what we want, and just give us choices. Then leave it alone

    Give us choices, Do not lock us in. We all have different needs and wants. Here's a question for you. Was anyone complaining about the old Yahoo? We don't all need to know everything all the time. Give us back what worked to OUR satisfaction!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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*&^%!

  16. 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…

  17. 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!
