How can we improve Yahoo Finance?

Negative lot amounts

When I sell a part of a position, I used to account for it by entering a new lot with a negative amount of shares. Apparently this option was recently
prohibited, it asks to enter a positive number. Please return the possibility to enter a negative amount.

    I can not enter negative ( $$CASH ) I get a pop up message saying I need to enter an amount greater than zero.

    Dear Yahoo Finance, I followed your suggestion, went to ( and clicked "Contact Us", it gave me two options: Contact a Yahoo Specialist and See Product-related Help Articles. I've chosen the former, but it led to creation a new support case #00229004. I attached the requested screenshot there.
    I also believe you can reproduce the situation by creating a portfolio, adding a symbol and creating a two lots under that symbol - one with a positive 100 shares and one with (-20) shares. You'll see what happens. Also place the mouse cursor on (-20), you'll see the message asking to enter an amount no less than 0.
