  1. Showing less of a publisher is not the issue.

    Showing less of a publisher is not an issue for me. I will prefer an option, like google, where I see no more news of a certain celebrities. For ex., I don't want to see news about the royals but when I clicked show-less from one publisher about 10 other publishers print news about them which shows up on my news feed, please update your options. Thanks

  3. Get rid of ads that take up the whole screen

    I'm now coming across ads that take up my entire screen. The only way to get past them is to swipe scroll so that you get past it. Otherwise any attempt to scroll on the ad itself opens the ad. I don't want ads. I will never click anything that is an ad. Ads of this size should not be allowed. Make them smaller and add a prompt saying "are you sure you want to leave the article to view this ad?"

  4. How can I sign in to vote when I'm already signed?

    A little less horror in the news would be nice. There's so much of it, it overwhelms the heart and mind.

  5. Offer a paid version to get rid of intrusive, disruptive, insignificant ads!

    I pay for ad free Yahoo mail. I would also pay for ad free Yahoo news. The ads are intrusive, taking up huge amounts of screen real estate on my smartphone; disruptive, because they commandeer bandwidth; and are irrelavent.

  6. no more articles/opinion/news from the telegraph

    i blocked everything from the telegraph in my feed yet at the end it seems i get every telegraph article out there... i do not consider it a legitimate news source-- it's a tabloid full of innuendo, garbage, and clickbait... the UK combo of the NY Post, Washington Times, Fox "news", and all the dubious right-wing podcasts... the telegraph is a waste of space.

  10. YAHOO TITLE WAS A SPOILER FOR BEL AIR

    So I do not have any social media part of the reason is because I HATE spoilers. However, going to check my email I see the link below on the yahoo home screen. Completely blew this surprise. Please don't allow anymore Spoiler titles.

    What is the pint of asking for my news preferences if you will not post them. This is so disgusting it is like that unwanted **** shoved in mouth. I DO NOT WANT TOP STORIES! And yet ypu believe like the **** ypu are to only shovel BS on to my top stories.

  14. Remove the Billionaires poll

    There is a poll asking if billionaires are doing what they do for a betterment of mankind and b vanity and greed I voted on this poll about 6 months ago but it's still on my feed page if you can change it or instead do a weakly poll on the latest news I think that would be a much more interactive than seeing the same poll for 6 months.

  17. Notification section should not just be for news

    The notification section in the settings should also show us replies to our comments, for the sake of continuity. We don't get to reply someone who saw our comments. So, please fix it. Thanks

  18. Set mandatory minimums for comment section posts

    My complaints with Yahoo's subpar moderation are well documented in the Play Store. But here it is in a nutshell: the more thoughtful, clearly stated and well-written a comment section post is, the more likely it is to be rejected or "held for moderation" in a process that can take hours if it's resolved at all. Meanwhile, poorly written ESL troll trash in clear violation of Yahoo's rules makes its way into publication with no apparent trouble at all. This is especially true on weekends and with hot, breaking news stories about US politics or Ukraine, where Yahoo's moderation walls…

  20. Fix your URLs

    https://ca.news.yahoo.com/ap-votecast-takeaways-early-republican-120143675.html

    Here's an example from today's report. AP article lays bare Trump's weakness with the broad US electorate and it's given a Canadian URL so American Yahoo users can't comment on it. Removing the CA and refreshing works sometimes but often (like today) goes to an error page. This happens all too frequently; who's responsible for this? It gives the impression that you're hiding news. That's Infotainment.
