  1. How Do you contact Yahoo.. You dont because they dont care what your opinion is.. otherwise How do you contact Yahoo....

    make a button for feedback to a real employee and not this stupid blog .. I absolutely hate the auto play feature on videos.. If I want to watch a video I will watch it.. Do NOT start it for me.. What happens idiots is that when you got multiple screens open and they all start playing and the same time.. You get computer freeze ups and thats not necessary to have happen.. STOP THE AUTO PLAY BACK PERIOD.. If not then you deserve to loose money.. I wont buy a product that yahoo auto starts just off of principle..

    Hi there,

    We do appreciate all the feedback we receive, and we do listen to the feedback from our users on this Suggestion Board. Our Product Group checks each post on a regular basis.

    With regards to the auto-play feature, you can turn this feature off. You’ll want to click on the menu icon when hovering your mouse over the video. Then use your mouse scroll wheel to see the bottom of the feature list, and click Preferences under Settings. Turn Autoplay Off, and click on the X in the top-right corner to close out of the options menu.

  2. I would like to get a Yahoo account, however because I don't have a cell phone, I cannot complete the registration process, is there a way?

    It seems Yahoo does not allow one to register without a mobile phone number, and when I give my land line, it does not recognize it a a valid number which is confounding to me. Can anyone assist me?

    Hi Joseph,

    Yahoo, and many other vendors now require existing users to add a mobile phone, as well as new registrants to help protect your account. Adding a mobile number to your account is an important account security step (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN14992.html?impressions=true)

    - Greatly reduces the risk of an abuser accessing your account.
    - If you need to recover your password, this is the safest and most effective method to recover it.
    - Yahoo will alert you through your mobile device when we suspect unusual login activity on your Yahoo account.

    Yahoo does not rent, sell, or share your personal information with other people or non affiliated companies, except to offer products or services you’ve requested. See our Privacy Policy for more detailed info on how we keep your information private.

  3. Consistant format between News Home and Yahoo Tech & Politics comment sections.

    Comments on Yahoo Tech and Yahoo Politics are not posted chronologically. A comment 1 minute old is directly above a 2 day old
    comment. No availability of a "My Comments" button. No choice of
    "Most Recent" "Popular Now" "Most Replied" etc. Just the one way
    of looking at them at that is as they appear to be thrown against the wall.

  9. Require readers that use the "thumbs-down" button to post the reason (a brief statement) for their choice.

    To say that a reader disagrees with someones opinion or statement does not seem sufficient to support an action that contributes to the possibility of a post being hidden, nor does it give the author or other readers an adequate understanding of the negative action. For instance, is a person disagreeing simply because they are a member of an opposing party or because they have something relevant to add to the conversation?

    Hi!

    Can you please provide more details with regards to the specific video you are having issues with? A web address and/or video title will help. Feel free to post an update within the Comments.

    Thanks!

  14. Get rid of the annoying David Pogue!

    It's hard to take anything on Yahoo Tech seriously when David Pogue uses it as his personal playground and attempts to become an amateur comedian. The sense of wonder or excitement which would ordinarily be felt by some discovery is ruined by his off the cuff "jokes" and his sophmoric behavior. Now I like jokes as much as most people, but not mixed with serious tech, thank you. If Yahoo insists on keeping him on board, why not start a Yahoo Comedy division?

  20. let me pick the ads I want. not just broad general categories.

    I would like more control over the ads I can pick in my preferences. I only have 7 choices before i have to opt out. Let me pick and you will have better results. I don't want ANY entertainment or sports ads. I don't want ANY clothing ads. I will not buy any of that online. Give me stuff I want to buy online and I might even click. There are lots of other categories I do care about, but you will never know them. Also, this page is broken on safari. half of the page jumps around.
