  1. Yahoo just go back to your old roots

    I miss when you were a fun experience. Now? Idk, its like you're something you are not anymore. Like you're just not yourselves. This new IM sucks for one. I remember when I could view all my offline contacts---NOPE--not anymore. My GOD all the stuff you took out, all the features that should only be optional, but others still like to use them. Oh the list goes on. I suggest you return to your old roots and compete better------------------------COMPETE BETTER WITH GOOGLE!!!! You are, and always have been, since Google came along, LOSING the race. Come on you guys can…

                    • Absolute rubbish. You idiots. Bring back the use of camera, the invisible button, address book, etc. Imbeciles

                      An imbecile paid another imbecile to come out with an imbecility. Tha's Yahoo for you. My idea is:
                      1. Fire the first imbecile.
                      2. Fire the second imbecile.
                      3. Fire Yahoo Board of Directors.
                      4. Hire the cleaning lady as the CEO.
                      5. The cleaning lady will bring back the old version of Yahoo Messanger and restore peace in the Galaxy with her magic broom.

                            • Webcam support, colorfull smilies, and a way to delete users

                              Hi,

                              It would be nice, that you implement webcam. Maybe an idea for the next update?

                              And also an improvement of the smilies in the desktop app. At the moment, they are in black and white. i think most users prefer color.

                              And also a possibility to delete users from the desktop app. At the moment, the only way to delete users, is to login at the yahoo website.

                                  • Its very annoying to use yahoo messenger, we can't see whether our contacts are online or not.

                                    There are many applications which we feel happy to use, and when i look at yahoo messenger i feel annoying to use it. we cant see our contacts are online or not. All are moving forward in technology but yahoo is going back into 90s. And good idea for you is hire any good engineer.

                                      Your new app sucks. Not being able to see who is online is the most idiotic thing for an online messenger I've ever seen.
