  4. I just changed my picture but yet it's not visible. .

    I try to go to the Yahoo Newsroom Forum, via my Android but it keeps telling me, " Oops. Somethings gone wrong. Please try again." This has been occurring for a week. What can be done to correct this?

  5. Finding articles

    I can't comment on articles in the web page. It directs me to download the app. I go into the app and can't find the article. Who is developing and writing this horrible app??? You need an article search feature. And an easy way to get back to your own comments. That's what people want. I've already shied away from your app and have gone to twitter.

  7. The transition from yahoo.com to app is Brutal

    I have the app but like layout on yahoo.com better. If I want to comment, it forces you to click "download app". As I stated I already have the app. Rather than opening the app to its starter stories, it should open directly to the article I would like to comment on.
    I tried locating the story using the exact title and it couldn't be found. This is basic stuff that I'm looking for to keep their services user friendly. Get it figured out yahoo.

  10. IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE THE STORY I WAS READING ABOUT AFTER CLICKING ON COMMENTS SECTION. WHY???????????

    when I see a news article and then want to read the comments or submit one, I'm always taken to the app and have to open it. then I have to seach for eternity to find the article I was reading about. How is this an improvement? Worst app in the history of apps.
    SIMPLE QUESTION YAHOO:
    if I'm on the news page and I click on the comments section, how do I find it in less than an hour...if at all??????????
    This is insanely rediculous. Why does it take me to the app and require opening it EVERY TIME.…

  11. Redundancy

    Your repetition of the same info in your articles is getting old. Kindly refrain. If you have nothing new to report, don't. It's getting tiresome.

  13. Go back to old comment format

    Go back to old comment format with thumbs up and down counts. You have already lost me as one who uses Yahoo as my start page. Stop fixing what isn't broken.

  17. How about quit the practice of deleting reactions that didnt break any agreed code of conduct. Reactions that differ from mainstream belief

    As above.....censorship is not the answer. It enboldens and causes the exact opposite the desired effect. In short term these tatics work however they build up a big blow back. Truth eventually will surface.

  18. Enjoy the yahoo app, when I first got it was working great. Now when it notifies me of a local story, nothing is there. How can I get that

    Enjoy the yahoo app. Both local and national news stories were working fine. Now when the cell notifies me of a local story, the story is NOT there.

  19. Give option to hide comment section entirely

    For unknown reasons, yahoo's comment section is usually flooded with "trolls" and contrary to popular belief but kids actually view this app. Make it to where the comment section can be turned off in the settings
