  1. 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.

  2. "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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

    Hi Jenneva,

    Would you please provide us with the following information so we can look into this further:
    1. Where you are located?
    2. How often does this happen?
    3. Does this happen immediately after you navigate to yahoo.com or after you are reading an article?

    Regards,
    Homepage Support

  7. I can no longer comment. The comment button seems to be disabled. Am I being hushed up?

    I can no longer comment. The comment button seems to be disabled. Am I being hushed up (censored)?

  8. 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.

  9. Videos don't match articles

    Why do you put videos with new articles, that have NOTHING to do with the article? It makes yahoo look stupid and makes us mad .

  11. You need to have 'Science' as one of your search categories. Why is it left out?

    You definitely have 'Science' news items on your home page, so it makes no sense that a user can't search by it.

  12. 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.

  14. No video on news feed's

    Not too long ago you guys changed your platform of the home screen. Yahoo has been my home screen since the beginning. But since the change, I can no longer see the video's of most of the news feed posts. The one's I can see, I can't expand into full screen view. The screen just remains blank. This is the same experience at home with my MacBook Air as well as at work with my SurfacePro. It's kinda ridiculous and you guys need to fix it, please. Not sure how much longer I can go with read only articles. We…

  16. Story from the site "Ice Pop" has a virus in it! A story about a "Henge" found in Ireland . When you click on "Next" it hijacks your compute

    Virus hidden inside a news story on your site! When you click "next" it hijacks your computer!!! In a story by the "Ice Pop" website! A message pops up telling you to call a "Microsoft number" They try to get you to turn over your computer remotely to them! In a NEWS story??? Don't you scan these things before allowing them on your page?

    Hi Philip,

    If you can provide the exact story article and right click on the article title and select copy link address and provide that to us. That will allow us to make the appropriate changes to the article.

  17. 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 !!

  18. This POS signs me out every 5 or 10 minutes. Please stop "improving" it. And your login screen is totally horked since ~May 1 2020.

    Just what I said. You web developers keep pitching cool new things to your management. Well how about this? FIX THE DAMNED THING INSTEAD OF "IMPROVING" IT!

  19. your merger with ATT is defective.

    your merger with ATT for access to email is horrible. it has tons of issues. its constantly logging out even though i set it to stay logged in. when you try to log back in it takes you a page that says successfully logged out. when you try and log in again it gives IBM errors. takes 3 or 4 tries to get to my email.
    then you want to charge $ for tech support when its YOUR issues we need support with. -_-
