  2. Go back to the lat format NOW!!!

    Why was the format changed without providing instructions? I can't vote or post comments on any answers or questions, even my own. This looks like it was written by the same people who wrote Windows OS.

  3. Blocking - Remove ‘Answer’ button

    If a user is blocked by the person asking a question then remove the Answer button for that/those users.
    (It was that way years ago. )

    What a waste of time to compose an answer only to not be able to post it!

    Since Anonymous questions and the current mobile format do not allow us to see the asker’s ID this would be helpful.

  4. Make it easier to report and suspend problem users who harass others

    People are getting away with harassment on a daily basis take this individual for example who is a long time user and has been getting away with this insulting and bullying for years he goes by LAN

    https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=j3Nh99eeaa

    nearly every answer he gives insults the asker of the question and has been regularly violating community guidelines and terms of service and there is no way to contact yahoo about it

    need more proof just look at his answer where he calls the asker stupid when they asked a real question and wanted real answers

  5. Mobile version has a poor user interface.

    I can no longer see questions from all categories.

    I only have the choice of Notifications or individual subject categories.

  6. Fix your glitches!!! On mobile version i can't change the category. When i click edit category, the process freezes.

    Just make sure everything is working properly, no glitches or hold ups in asking or answering questions. A lot of answers don't appear on the question page as well, they stay hidden in the notifications panel, this glitch has been going on for maybe about a year.

  7. Anonymous questions - remove blocking

    When an asker moves their question to ‘Anonymous’ any and all blocking should be removed for that question permanently.

    You can add a confirmation button that informs the asker that blocking will be removed if you think it necessary to avoid mistakes.

    The Anonymous feature is being misused in some sections as a trolling method.

    With blocking active this allows the trolls to narrow by design the responses that will attach to their (loaded) question.

    Since YA does not have the resources to police trolling this would provide a small mitigation.

  8. Allow us to block Anonymous answerers!

    A lot of times, our questions are filled with troll answers who go Anonymous. This way, we can't block them and they continue to troll in our questions.

    If we can block Anonymous users, this problem will be solved!

  12. Add user's username and avatar beside the questions on the mobile site please

    I like that I can see user's usernames and avatars beside their answers, but I want to be able to see who asked the questions too on the mobile site.

  14. This SUCKS! Go back to the old format.

    Go back to the old format. The new one is too hard to use.

  15. You can IMPROVE Yahoo Answers by getting RID of and BANNING the serial stalker, and pest, with the User Name "Ninefinger".

    This user "Ninefinger" is well known to the Yahoo Customer Care team, as a SERIAL Pest and Stalker, with ZERO regard for any rules or guidelines here and has been suspended countless times for stalking, harrassment, point gaming, and continuous insulting of other members.

    He was been attacking my account ceaselessly for the last FOUR years. He has been suspended countless times for it already. But he operates so MANY accounts here.......suspending any ONE of them, doesn't do a ** thing. He just hops over to one of his other accounts, changes the name to "Ninefinger" again, and carries right…

  17. Incentivize answering by fixing the Leaderboard

    At present, the "points earned this week" on our profiles isn't accurate at all. Fix that, and then fix the inaccurate Leaderboard as well to boost activity on Y!A(and so, we get more answers to our questions). An additional suggestion in this regard is to create a search tool for the Leaderboard, so we can track which position we are at instantaneously instead of scrolling down until we rot and die.

  19. I have new contacts to add to a pre-existing list and your current version does not support that. How it to my list of Tailors?
