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. ca.my.yahoo.com

    agree the "new" yahoo sucks? Found this cure on the weather app page where people couldn't get alternate weather sites to work. Simply make your home page as if are Canadian, for some reason yahoo screwed over only Yanks. ca.my.yahoo.com & presto my old banned yahoo home page was resurected . Yahoooooo!

  2. Portfolios area made almost none functional. Bring back the old one!!!

    Restore the ability in portfolios to see the price trend for the day and new news on a stock without having to click to a new page. The removal of this function makes Yahoo vastly less useful for financial news and literally invites people who use this area to leave Yahoo!

    You should fire the idiot who approved such a change. Your aim should be to make financial news more NOT LESS functional.

  5. Incorporate TV listings, ability to update stock prices, plus stock news for those you are following, saving changes, smaller weather font

    This is okay... but... it didn't save any of my changes. Weather fonts are way too big; Can't get TV listings on my page. Also the Financial widget was so much better before. But how can this be functional if it doesn't even save your changes?

  6. New "My Yahoo!" Page is Terrible

    List of Issues/Errors
    1) Ugly interface with "Themes" that are unappealing at best and impossible to use due to contrast issues.
    2) Is actually slower to load on my system then before. Likely due to too many embedded graphics (why do you think we need to see a team logo?) and the ridiculous continuous scroll along the margins.
    3) No why to "refresh" just the portfolio section without having to go through the long refresh of the entire page.
    4) No logic used in the interface.
    5) My Yahoo insists it knows where I am located and keeps giving me…

  11. You have completely destroyed Yahoo Mail now you've destroyed My Yahoo

    Every aspect of Yahoo is now rubbish. Marissa Mayer has taken this company and made it into a laughing stock. Your advertisers are catching on that your core product is worthless. Your users have left in droves. Just wait until Alibaba goes public and you no longer have that 24% keeping you afloat. Bye Bye Yahoo...

  13. Presidential Action

    As president I am considering a bill that would force Yahoo to give you back your old home pages. You have voted and the new yahoo page is just no good just like healthcare.gov.

  16. Do you.....

    ....have any idea how bad you've screwed up this time. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse. Does the 'lady who makes babies' even look at this **** before it goes live?

  17. My yahoo

    ha ha ha........LOL the cover memo to this section states "You can change your theme at any time by selecting “Choose Themes”. Ok yahoo try it from your ipad. Oh you can't. This new site is as well designed as Obama's Heath care site. He's as qualified for his job as is the head of development for your site.

    Want my old version back

  18. Dump Yahoo Stock

    Dump their stock if you own it or if you advise others on their portfolios. This website is a clear sign of a company that does not care about its followers and customers. Bad for the stock.

  19. This is YOUR Yahoo homepage, not mine!

    Please read the feedback from those of us who use Yahoo, and give us a choice, instead of making decisions for us. You ask or input, yet you appear to ignore it. Do. You really believe those of us who are complaining, will get used to the changes and stop moaning and groaning? Trust me, you are not the only game in town.
