    • Dump of MDN

      You have own copies of Wikipedia data, e.q. If I need to know who is the next husband of Avril Lavigne, just white her name into Yahoo Search Box.

      I want the same functionality for Webmasters, specially for Javascript. On the same place of results page as Wiki data now.
      The source of informations: MDN - Mozilla Developer Network, for example

      https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Node/replaceChild

      Start with Array functions (e.g. map, find), then EC6 (e.g. let, arrow functions) and also old functions (e.g. replace child).

      * 1 sentence of explanation with returned value (Object, array, item, string ...)

      * easy code as example…

      • GB Gold medal table

        This is not so much as a suggestion to improve search experience but asking you to get the gold medal part of the GB medal information right. the rugby team did not win gold.

          • Your home page is ridiculously slow in loading and has been for some time as are the pages that you link to re ads and features etc..

            Your home page is ridiculously slow in loading and has been for some time. It takes forever before I am able to insert text into the search box

            Don't put so much on the pages as comps cant cope with all that nonsense

            • post only those casinos where the roulette games are not illegally fixed

              All system players are illegally stopped by roulette games where the bet is known in advance and the result is fixed to ensure we lose. Stop it from being allowed, it is illegal

              • Respect quotation marks and provide exact-matching results

                Yahoo does not respect quotation marks around a search phrase whereas Google does. So even when I put quotation marks around the phrase Yahoo does not just provide exact-matching results but all sorts of variations. But I often need to get exact matching results and I really hope Yahoo respects quotation marks.

                • Improve the Search Engine.

                  The results you make from a search for example: Dubai Sports TV, disappointingly yields unrelated results like Accommodation.

                  Try to improve accuracy of results.

                    • It would be nice to stop placing articals in the main page from the telegraph newspaper as you can not read them and then they want money

                      It would be nice to stop placing articals in the main page from the telegraph newspaper as you can not read them and then they want money all the time and this is not reporting the news it is helping the telegraph make money.
                      News articles by yahoo should be free if I want to join the telegraph I will search for them myself.

                        • Use strict Boolean search operators as you used to do.

                          A simple phrase search no longer brings up results strictly including the phrase. It brings up results where the words in the phrase are next to each other including punctuation.

                          This is frustrating and wastes users' time in wading through pages of irrelevant results. This is sloppy programming.

                                  • Incorrect information being displayed for Bradford Council

                                    Search for Bradford Council, or it's correct title "City of Bradford Metropolitan Council", a list of phone numbers comes up. These are various departmental numbers and not the main number This is causing serious problems for residents and staff as they are getting through to the small departments unable to handle their calls.

                                    The number clearly shown on the website for the council is 01274 432111. No other numbers should be listed to avoid confusion such as people registering family deaths by ringing up a children's play centre for information. The information is correct on Google
