  1. How about Real News at the top and enertainment **** at the bottom

    Instead of purely liberal or purely entertainment stuff, how about Yahoo putting the real news stories of the day at the top, instead of just plain ****

  2. Your website has NO ORGANIZATION! Why don't you categorize your context like every other website?

    Go back to categories so I don't have to see headlines for the Kardashians on every other story!

  4. I want to have the sports stories that constantly show up on my pages to go away. I used to be able to click on a yes/no option

    I want to have the sports stories that constantly show up on my pages to go away. I used to be able to click on a yes/no option, but that option has disappeared. I do not care about sports stories. I want to remove them from my news pages.

  7. 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…

  9. Stop running 30 second ads before some pictures under News tab (HOME is OK)

    When viewing under the News tab, some stories have their video prefaced by the same 30 second ad for multiple stories. Today for instance, "NATO calls on Russia to destroy new missile, warns of response" plays correctly under the Home tab but has a 30 second Amica ad run first before the correct story video. The Amica ad is run first in some but not all stories under the News tab. Please stop this.

  10. I truely hope that you are listening!

    After reading many horribly written articles for the last few years, I have finally had enough after seeing in BOLD wording within an article title the curseword FU**ED. There are many youths that will see this sort of vulgarity when they open their default web browser to Yahoo home page. Where is the professionalism? With that being said, it is no wonder people think journalism is dead. Try hiring someone to perform spelling and grammar checking on articles before you release them. So many articles seem like they are written by recent high school graduates in that they are incoherent/incomplete…

  11. More "Feel Good" human interest, non-celebrity, non-political stories please!

    Yahoo used to carry more feel good stories before the 2016 campaign heated up. Lots of comments in yesterday's CBS story you carried about the lunch stealing labs had people saying they wanted more. We all can use the reprieve from the constant political and celebrity stories. We can all use stories about regular people like us doing nice things. Please consider adding MORE upbeat content like about the dogs or the boy in foster care who wants to be adopted. We're overloaded with the famous!

  13. need a "report" feature for articles

    We need a report feature for articles. There seems to be waaaaay too many articles that are completely biased and provide no facts. Case in point this recent article about a pregnant woman being shot and killed by a police officer. 1. she wasnt pregnant. 2. she had multiple warrants out for her arrest. and 3. she tried to take a officers taser and use it on him. All of this has been confirmed by the family and the police yet the editor of the article just sent out whatever he wanted. That writer/editor should have legal action taken upon…

  14. 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…

  15. 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?

  16. Are you honestly OK with your writers using the term "AF" in your headlines? You should be ashamed and embarrassed.

    When you allow your writers to use the term "AF" (as ****) in your headlines, it makes your entire company less credible.

  17. Your picture next to your Yahoo logo

    Why for Fathers day do you have a man mowing a lawn? Kinda sexist? You would not have a mother doing laundry or say Making a sandwich for Mothers day would you? Maybe you need to be less sexist towards men. You guys are liberals maybe try being one instead of just being a feminist and hating on men.

  18. 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.

  19. People should have to show their real name, to post a comment.

    Make people show their real name when posting a comment. Might make people be a little more respectful of each other when they know they are not anonymous.

  20. Please allow us to use our own wallpaper for Yahoo Mail. You don't give us enough nice choices.

    Most other email providers allow background changes of the user's choice, either from a provided list or the user's own graphics. Personally, I'm not fond of any of the choices you provide.
