  1. 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?

  2. Enable multiple select by using shift key as AOL does

    I'm trying to clean up my mailbox and it's a royal pain in the **** to have to select EVERY LAST message individually. Whoever the ya-hoo was that killed that intelligent feature ought to be banned to developing for hotmail.

  3. 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 As the articles age they become so out of date.

  6. Block foreign trolls

    I am a long time user of Yahoo. I read and comment on your articles daily. I am very concerned with the many comments are clearly from bots and trolls from foreign countries and posted to create division or spread dangerous propaganda. Most of these comments are on politically oriented articles. Most of these are likely from foreign origins or routed through proxy servers. To protect American from foreign influence (as google, facebook, etc are doing) Yahoo! should block comments sent through proxy servers and only accept direct server to server postings.

  7. Get rid of the unnecessary and often inappropriate GIFS on comments.

  8. How about when you include a story on your news feed that says "viral clip", how about actually including said viral clip.

  9. Political article posts

    In an election year I think it would be a good idea to limit the troll posts. I just counted 124 posts by one person today and it's not out of the norm to see 50 to 75 from one account. They argue any point and aid the division in this country. I'm all for freedom of speech but the trolls aren't contributing to an intelligent conversation here. Limit comments to 20 a day on political articles by accounts and start booting trolls. Sure, they can get more accounts and VPN's but you guys are smart. Start booting the trolls…

  10. Stop using 'slams,' 'slammed.' English has a wide vocabulary. Find some new verbs!

    Expand your vocabulary. I get pretty tired of seeing that someone has been "slammed" or that "x slams y!" If you are being paid to write, use a thesaurus or something.

  14. Expand news sources


    1. The majority of the articles posted are not from major sources like WSJ, NYT, Wash Post, AP: why? Too many posts from HuffPo: why?

  15. remove the ice cruncher ad. It recycles every few seconds and I have had to turn off the sound on my computer to avoid going crazy.

    remove the ice cruncher ad. It recycles every few seconds and I have had to turn off the volume on my computer. I am also considering not buying Colgate toothpaste which we currently use as a protest.

  18. Many article headlines are false and misleading. Headlines for articles are lies at times. Your page is being discredited.

    Writers need to stop lying in headlines to get people to read thier stories. Anymore half of the headlines are bias and all out lies. After reading the story you wonder how the writer could even possibly gotten their headline for their story. STOP THE LYING. News reporters are supposed to be neutral in politics. YOU GUYS ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM and honestly should be fired for writing misleading articles and false headlines.

  19. It is not necessary to add captions to videos that contain no dialogue. It's redundant.
