ADA issue - ad's too large @133% zoom. Divisions and layers float across the screen, fix it!
Yahoo! I spend half my time trying to X off ads and marking them as distracting only to be fed replacements that are equally as bad - if not worse! IIf your readers can't pay attention to the content then why would I stick around to play whack-an-ad? I must wear glasses to read and use the fonts every site declares at 133% with no problems EXCEPT for Yahoo. I'm not asking for an advertisement free Yahoo but having used the site for so many years I'm about ready to make an ADA case out of this.
!. I have epilepsy and the brightly flashing ads cause me too much distress. I'm only asking you to minimize that to reduce the amount of distress. Or to throw the ads out altogether. You decide, just please do something!
Finally - why can't you get the commenting and gif posting functions in order and supported, just a little biit better?
It''s horrendous in it''s current state. if you want moderators for the communities turn on a delete and report button for responsible users who have some experience and let moderation be turned around to face users, instead of hiding it in the stealth of a corporate cloak. Simply incorporate a selection scheme to elect a person to ''moderate' and add the buttons to their interface once they have 'reported' 3 valid complaints, then remove them after a certain number of actions of time of service, allowing the machine selection to continue and replace the attrition.
The three issues I've raised cost you nothing to handle.
The implementation of community moderation works better than anything else you can purchase or dream up. It won't make users angry. Build a control panel interface to extend their overview and stats if it seems like a logical extension, GIVE them strict rules and replace them at short intervals instead of letting them act like they own the place. Don't badge them in any way! That serves no purpose and only inhibits other posters.
You guys are sitting on the best internet real estate, and it's about time you started treating it as such, considering that you want some other company to buy it. Shake the dust off the blinds and clean out some of the cobwebs!. Thanks!
