  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. 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.

    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

  4. 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.

  6. Fix your articles off your Homepage

    Every time I open an article from Yahoo's Homepage, I use the slider to move the page as I read, not really paying attention to whether my cursor is staying on the slider all the time, and what happens because I don't do that, the cursor falls unto the blank section of the page, and I am instantly transported back to the Homepage, whether I have finished reading or not. I've looked elsewhere lately for the same articles, so I won't be subject to this headache.

  7. Can Yahoo resume one of the functions "Store and forward and mark as read" when I use mail forwarding?

    "Store and forward and mark as read" is very useful, but can not find in the current e-mail setting.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Font or page resize issue across Yahoo properties when font scale different on monitors

    Font or page resize issue across Yahoo properties when font scale different on monitors

    My primary monitor is high density and is scaled to 125%, whereas my secondary is 100%. On every page load and I think every ad load cycle the page jumps scale, then returns to size when displayed on the monitor that is at 100% scale. It makes it very difficult to use email as the subject links jump all over the page.

  13. mute

    The mute feature is horribly flawed but I won't complain about the usual things. The second worst part about mute is that even though you mute someone, they can still see you and reply to your posts and ridicule you behind your back (in your own post). If you get clever, you'll notice the reply count is higher than the number of replies, which tells you to sign out and view the comments as a public person. Then you can read what the muted person said about you. Now the worst part. Lately I can't reply to any of my…

  14. 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.

    As title states - the Advertisement begins and runs at the same time as the article, so I get the ad and sound overlaying the article sound all at once.

  19. Sizing issue with videos on articles

    When viewing an article with a video attached via Iframe there is a sizing issue making the iframe to small to view the full video.

    Current code is:
    <div class="caas-iframe fixed-height facebook caas-loaded" style="height:200px;"><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCOAvalancheInfo%2Fvideos%2F1237681643096737%2F"></iframe></div>

    .caas-iframe blockquote, .caas-iframe iframe {

    width: 100%;
    
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    border-width: 0;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    min-height: 1px;

    }

    Corrected working code is:

    <div class="caas-iframe fixed-height facebook caas-loaded" style="height: 420px;"><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCOAvalancheInfo%2Fvideos%2F1237681643096737%2F"></iframe></div>

    .caas-iframe blockquote, .caas-iframe iframe {

    width: 100%;
    
    height: 100%;
    /* position: absolute; */
    border-width: 0;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    left: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    min-height: 1px;

    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.
