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

  1. You can improve it by allowing me to keep the homnepage I designed myself. This coming "upgrade" will contain content I neither want nor wi

    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.

  4. Stop sneaking in your toolbar. You know most people won't see it until it's too late. It's a thief's trick.

    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.

  6. Yahoo are you listening to your most loyal customers?

    Please give me back my "my yahoo" I no longer can zoom with my IOS devices and overall I see no value add to your new site. I have even went to the extreme to set up a netvibe site. I company in your condition can not afford to **** off its most loyal followers!

  8. Fix the mail counter, please, on the new Home Page

    For the past month, as I've received email at "My Yahoo", the counter on the "new" home page has continued to count the incoming emails - I'm now up to 78, whereas before this f**ked up mess you created, I got actual totals of new incoming mail. Please fix this before it becomes totally stupid.

    I don't like the new lay-out either - it's clunky and looks like it was created by a six year old. It is quite obvious that customers were not consulted before you foisted this change on us.

  13. How can we improve yahoo you ask? Be more like Google. Don't force your chitty changes on your loyal users.

    I'm now a former yahoo user and a loyal Google user. All because yahoo forced their changes on me without my permission and without letting me have my old homepage back. Google is so much better I can't even describe it in words. Yahoo, you suck!

  14. Thanks for showing me the door.

    Last year you guys ruined Yahoo! Sports, and I went to ESPN. This year you've destroyed what little functionality MyYahoo! offered, so I guess it's time to check out Google Plus.

  16. You've said for MONTHS you'll fix the Scoreboard app to put only MY teams in it - WHEN???? New My Yahoo has almost no useful customization

    I've been using My Yahoo for over 15 years, but if you don't restore something very similar to the clean, FUNCTIONAL, customizable classic My Yahoo within a VERY short time, I'll be leaving. 80% of the functionality doesn't work - Have you ever heard of BETA TESTING? MARKET TESTING?

  17. I hate it. I want my old layout back. I had a stock portfolio that I have been tracking since 1999 that disappeared. I may just drop Yaho

    Hate this. Give me my old layout back and my old portfolio. Could be the end of my relationship with Yahoo after 15+ years.

  18. Seriously to the Yahoo! team: I'm just having a little fun with a bad situation.

    I write a little code my self and I know the difference between how it feels to write something elegant and something flashy and stupid but we all work for stupid bosses. (well, not me, my boss works for a stupid boss but I'd quit rather than work for a stupid boss). I'm just a factory hand, I cannot imagine what it would be like to be an artist with a stupid boss. leave your stupid boss and do the thing that you are driven to do and be happy. leave your boss, you don't need them like we (the…
