  1. You've done it again. You have merged my comment with one you INCORRECTLY closed because the "show less" option STILL DOES NOT WORK!!!

    This is truly ridiculous. I am trying to communicate to you that a feature of your website does not work as intended and the only response you have is to merge my comments with an already closed thread. Don't close my comments. Don't merge this with an old, already closed thread. FIX THE SHOW LESS OPTION!!!

    Hi,

    Our Engineering team is looking into this. If you could let us know what about the “show less” option isn’t working we would appreciate it. Please provide specific publishers if possible.

  2. FIX YOUR COMMENT CENSOR ALGORITHM

    Whatever bots you use to censor comments are broken. I've been trying to post a benign comment that doesn't attack anyone, doesn't use any profanity, and doesn't use any of the other stupid words you Yahoos have deigned to censor (because you're retards, one of the words you censor). Yet you will not post it, you keep deleting the comment. It is incredibly frustrating and one of the reasons why I'm about to drop Yahoo and never visit your sites again.

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you for reporting this. Would you be able to give us some additional details to help us investigate and resolve this issue:
    1. Does this happen on a desktop or mobile device?
    2. What browser are you using?
    3. Is the ad for the Yahoo News app or the Yahoo App?

    Regards,

  4. I posted 2 videos of whites attacked for being white, so Yahoo removed my ability to post video links.

    Yahoo is constantly posting videos of white people using racial slurs or calling the police needlessly. Yahoo brings us a new story about one or the other every week, but never a single story about a white person attacked for their skin color. I posted two videos that happened this past October: one of Chris Bilcik getting his eye sliced in a pizza parlor for being white and one of Andy Rosenmayer getting his head bashed in with a bowling ball for being white. Both had happened that month and yahoo never reported about either story. In an extra attempt…

  5. Please check the notifications. They are not clearing for some reason. I know this has been listed before but is not fixed. Really bad.

    Notifications on home page do not delete nor is the count changed. This has been listed before and responded too; however, it is not fixed. As the articles age they become so out of date.

    Is this menu notifications or the bell notification? 
    Are you clicking on the notification to open it? 
    What internet browser are you using

  6. Yahoo articles state "story continues" and when you click on it to read the rest, it does not take you there

    STORY CONTINUES buttons do not work. You click on many of them and they take you nowhere !!

  7. Dangerous JS code on main Yahoo page

    On main Yahoo page you have JS code like:
    window.onload = function() {
    var astroBodyText = document.getElementById("astroBodyText");
    ...
    while (astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight) {
    }
    }

    For some systems (depends on installed fonts) condition:
    astroBodyText.scrollHeight > astroBodyText.offsetHeight

    always true, that's why your main page is stucking :-(
    Please fix this condition or add condition for exit from loop.

  8. To Web Developer: Block Level (not Inline) Elements, Please clear floats...

    Hi, On Larger Displays (mine is 17"), there is a problem with the elements in the right column of the page floating over elements in the column in the center of the page. So, please make the elements "block" level (instead of "inline") and please clear the floats. Thanks! That should fix it.

  9. Stop requiring sign in every time

    Every time I open my computer for the day, I'm required to sign in?? That should not be required on my computer. All other sites memorize my sign-in information.

  10. Options quotes are wrong

    Your options quotes are wrong.
    I deduce what is happening is that the bid and ask are only updated when there is a trade. The result is that the prices can be hours, days weeks or even months out of date.
    The graph of price also stops at the last trade time.

    Look at puts and calls for ROKU for example, a stock which exhibits large prices changes in a short time. The option prices don't keep up, creating the false impression that certain trades can produce instant and guaranteed profit.

    For example, tonight friday oct 18 ROKU closed at…

    Dear Mr. Knowles: ERROR - a few paragraphs from the bottom of the article, you write,"205 metric tons..." AFTER "205' should be 'million' or 'billion' or...? if you get this Mr. Knowles, Thanks for a great article!

  14. Comments section

    I don't seem to be getting alerts when someone has replied on my comments on a story. I also can click on show replies and nothing shows up just a comment box and I don't need to comment on my own comment. Yahoo used to be really good and great working. But so many problems exist now, I don't get this on any other homepage of any kind.

  17. Understand we changed the calendar about six month ago...

    Are you pencil-neck Millennials drinking again on the job today? You posted "College Football Top 27" (it should be 25) FOR 2018! I'd love 10 minutes alone with any of you in my back yard with no firearms or tools. Just my bare hands.

  20. "Read more" links

    90 % of your "Read more" links are broken and take you to an old yahoo page, about baby charlie. I really enjoy scrolling through the page and reading different articles, which that link messes up for me. Please fix ASAP!
