  1. Bring back Yahoo! Maps

    They were my go-to for estimating travel distance, often providing a more accurate time (and route!) than MapQuest (which has a terrible user experience) or even AAA. I also used Yahoo Maps often for seeing where a business is located, if I have the address but not the major intersection nearby. Lastly, in my work I have customers all over the country, and I would use Yahoo! Maps to identify the nearest large city or how far apart they were from one another.
    Please, bring it back!

  2. freedom of speech

    how about you act as a platform and stop interfering in the expressed opinions of people. yes this means you might have to see something posted you don't like.. that's the real world. You force us to see your opinions, many that we disagree with, by the news stories and opinions you choose to present. Let's have a fair playing ground for all readers and responders.. or just close the whole page to non-paying viewers. You think I don't notice you shadow banning posts but I do.

  3. Don't ask me if I want to sign out, how stupid can you be?

    Do not ask if I want to sign out, it creates an inherent security flaw. Just sign me out when I click sign out, don't ask stupid questions.

  4. Turn off comments all all news stories.

    If Yahoo! cared AT ALL about the US, comments would be disabled on news stories. It's a breeding ground for hate, only. There is never any productive discussion. Is THIS what you guys wanted for your site? Because Yahoo! is used as a portal site for so many, users from all demographics are thrown together. Did you really think that you were providing a "safe space" for people with differing philosophies to come together and find some common ground? Quite the contrary. Yahoo! has done nothing but provide multiple battlegrounds that are (intentionally or unintentionally) designed to encourage and foster…

  5. Honoring Kelly Fraser, sharing cbc.ca article

    With sadness, reporting the passing of Inuit native artist Kelly Amaujaq Fraser on Christmas Day. At 26, a talent gone way too soon.

  6. Headline Suggestion at Christmas

    For the next 48 hours, how about a headline on Yahoo that revolves around Christmas theme, Santa Clause tracker, or some other similar positive and seasonal message. As opposed to the Trump *** and Pregnancy discrimination headline (and similar) that is currently running. Would be good to see Yahoo rise above the negative news fray, even if only for 1-2 days at Christmas time.

  10. my reactions

    i am not sure how to word this because i am ****** off right now about this. i am getting tired of seeing someone has replied to a comment i have made in the yahoo news section and when i try and find that reply, my original comment along with all the other replies to it disappear. there needs to be a "my reactions" sort function that will allow all of your comments to be brought up to the front so you can see yours and all the replies to it first.

  12. Please add a kids section

    To help maintain your shrinking audience, start catering to a younger audience. Your adaptability will certainly force yahoo out of business in a few years.

  13. I prefer to read the stories, not watch videos. If I wanted to watch the video Id click on it. But no!!! You force the videos on me! Sick!!

    Give me back my option on video. I read half the story, a video starts and I have to scroll around looking for the video to shut it off! Just had one experience where the video couldn't be found. Very frustrating!

  14. SAVING ARTICLES TO VIEW LATER

    Create an article save folder, much like facebook. I often come across a number of interesting articles on yahoo, but cannot find upon returning later, with the rotation constantly changing.

  19. Please use closed captioning, even if it's lousy auto-captioning

    Closed captioning on videos would be great, please. I know that the sources don't always provide the captioning, but when they're clips from TV news, they really should. IF GMA and local news channels want their clips to have global exposure on Yahoo!, then it should be part of their deal with you that they include the captions they were required to provide when they were on the air.

    There is software in existence now, too, that will do an auto-caption; it's generally a pretty poor caption compared to having a trained person do it, but it's better than nothing…

  20. Please stop refreshing page and going to top of page while I am scrolling down list of articles

    Site is very annoying when I am trying to read the list of articles and it suddenly refreshes and takes me back to the top of the list. So I must go back to stop and rinse and repeat. After a couple of times of this I give up and just stop reading this site. Please stop this refreshing.
