Yahoo Tech

The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

How can we improve Yahoo Tech?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Stop allowing pop-ups to block articles, pictures, or videos. It's rude !

    Pop up ads should never block articles or pictures accompanying articles. It actually creates a negative reaction, and makes people resent the product being advertised. It is rude to pop up right in the middle of reading or watching something. Like butting in on a conversation. Impolite. Bad manners. Annoying. Please, cut it out !

  2. Stop pop ups

    Things I'd like to see excluded: No More
    1) "sponsored" pseudoscientific articles from climate denial to fad diets.
    2) sensationalistic headlines leading to one sentence articles.
    3) pop ups
    4) layers and layers of pages I need to click through with deceptive icons that lead to advertisements
    5) Headlines that have nothing to do with content. Like "Huckabee clarifies remarks" leading to an article where he does precisely the opposite.
    6) auto play

  3. Stop spamming yourself with your own ads!

    Very annoyed that I can't even read yahoo articles without yahoo ads for other articles popping up. STOPP SPAMMING YOURSELF. We're already on Yahoo we get it, you want us to use Yahoo. I couldn't even read the live blog because of so many ads! Gosh.

  5. create an option on the toolbar to allow clients to delete all adds and popups

    why not install an option for clients like a button or a feedback option to correct technical problems etc on toolbar.

  6. Report Button

    Articles are being posted with questionable reputability and intent.

    Here is an example of one such article, which is advertising 3rd-party software for home router configuration:

    https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/now-secure-home-wi-fi-network-just-one-190600114.html

    The article is so offensive, that it has received nothing but negative feedback in the comments section. One such statement, is that the article itself is "Dishonest and unethical."

    This led me to realize that Yahoo! articles do not have a REPORT function. This is crucial for user feedback, and expresses a level of unprofessionalism on Yahoo! News's part. There should be no excuse not to provide users with a way to contribute…

  7. annoying pop period pop-ups may have get you before deletion.

    Maybe advertisements can be in a corner so you can still see the info. These annoying ads & such I've seen take up the whole page. My friend inn Georgia is angry. ....and she doesn't have that quantity. Too much.....TOO MUCH POPUPS & ADS!

  8. First thing, I am not a Yahoo Tech reader. But I REALLY like the new Tech page in terms of format and content. The new format

    Need to be able to have a preference for Simplified/Classic format and the new format.

    First thing, I am not a Yahoo Tech reader. But I REALLY like the new Tech page in terms of format and content at times. The new format is nice as the world goes to tablets and touch screens.It is nice not to have to hit the back button.

    But when you are not on a high speed network, (most of the time I am,) a more simpler pages are preferred.

    If I'm at work, the network is slow due to a lot of security…

  10. I have noticed more sponsored articles recently. Please eliminate them or reduce them to 1 on the page per day.

    I find the number of sponsored articles you've recently started posting to be very inappropriate. Too many of them and often with content that is a stretch for yahoo tech. The only reason I am commenting is because I value Yahoo Tech as a resource. I would like to keep it that way please.
