  1. Need a source shown with mouse hover:

    I have removed huffington post from the news feeds, yet you

    display stories with no source, & I click & some are huffington

    post. I do not wish to support huffington post, not even by

    accident. You need where with a mouse hover, it tells you the

    news organization, so one can decide to support them.

  2. Please vet anyone who leaves comments by making it a requirement they have a real working phone number. This would stop 50% of the Russians.

    If you make having a real working phone number a requirement to leave comments then you can throttle the amount of fake accounts posting on yahoo. The huge number of Russian and international trolls create an issue with people. Please implement comment security better so that at least we can know you tried something to make it harder for automated bots and paid spies to sway public opinion.

  5. Bring back the local weather numbers. I don't need sports nor zodiac "news".

    Bring back the local weather temps on my yahoo home page. I don't want sports scores or the astrology junk. Yahoo keeps getting worse.

  6. Your entertainment headlines of late are getting very, very, spoiler-y. Please suppress that trend.

    Self explanatory. Right now you're almost the kid that screamed, "Snape kills Dumbledore!" Everyone on the planet doesn't get the opportunity to see everything the first hour it's out. Edit your headlines in such a way as not to disrupt the enjoyment of the masses.

  8. Remove the upvote/downvote system in the comment section

    It's pretty common knowledge that Yahoo comment sections are absolute toxic dumpsters. Every discussion on any tangentially politics-related post inevitably gets incredibly polarized towards one political extremity. And the reason for this is the upvote/downvote system that is painfully easy to manipulate to steer the discussion one way or another. If Yahoo isn't going to do a proper job of moderating their comment sections and aren't willing to do away with it entirely (which is understandable), then please just remove the upvote/downvote system and just auto-sort the comments by most recent or something instead. All the upvote/downvote system does is…

  13. Enable Coil for monetizing Yahoo! and for those of us that use it, DROP EVERY SINGLE "partner" "sponsored" and display ad.

    Coil is changing the way sites monetize their content. I used to love Yahoo! but the pervasive sponsor articles are making your frontpage unreadable. I don't click them and have to wade through them. Contact coil.com and see about enabling the extension so that those of us using it can contribute funds to the site while reading and not be bothered by the ads. This is how content creators will be funded in the future. Be the future. (While simultaneously discontinuing the display of the drivel that is threatening to drive away long time users like myself.)

  14. Why notify me about replies to my comment, then give me a link that doesn't go to them? I can't ever follow up.

    The link in the notifications i get when someone replies to my comment just takes me to the article comment section, sorted by most popular. The odds that will be me when there are thousands of comments is almost nothing. and i don't have the time to scroll through thousands of entries. It is very frustrating to be told i have a response to my comment that I can never read or reply to.

  15. Please bring back local and world news

    There is no where on yahoo to look at World News, no where to find Local News, no links to political cartoons or other cartoonists, almost never any science articles, and your sports page usually reads like high school students with no sports experience is writing the articles. Even as a democrat myself I find the far left political bias to be infuriating and the misandry oozes off the website like a sinus infection. Why?

  17. No videos in place of top news stories

    I am not happy that you have replaced the bank of top stories with cheesy human interest videos that--even worse--autoplay when I load the page. This is ridiculous. Please bring back the top *news* stories, in text format, not video.

  19. Run your comment section like reddit.

    If you post a comment you can never find what you posted or what other think of your idea. This is not a healthy way to discuss topics and no further understanding comes of it. Also its impossible to find yahoo stories that fall off your scroll.

  20. NSFW Filter on newsfeed and ads

    Can we get a filter so that certain times of the day, ads/commercials and articles that have scantily clad folks (this affects/applies to both genders) and certain racy topics won't show up?

    This way, those of us who are at work, don't have to run the risk of running into them?
