  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Get rid of troll and spam questions.

    Most questions I see on ya are troll questions about politics, religion, and blm. I have asked serious questions so many times but each question goes unanswered because these spam questions are clogging up ya and being promoted to the main screen. Can we please get rid of these troll questions and promote actual questions instead.

  11. 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. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Get rid of repeat offenders

    Not just individual offensive posts. People are posting the same questions, totally off-topic, in the most offensive ways possible. They also go anonymous and abuse people who would otherwise block them. But they aren’t anonymous on your end. When a person gets reported over and over and it seems to you that the complaints against them are fair, get rid of them permanently.

  17. get rid of the new emails for every answer to a question I answer

    Getting a bunch of useless emails about a question I answered just clutters up my email box. I am not going to answer any more questions

    Si deve poter vedere chi ha postato la domanda una volta entrati per poter decidere se rispondere o meno a quella persona

  20. Dovete ripristinare le segnalazioni

    Dovete ripristinare le segnalazioni. Le sezioni sono infestate da troll che avendo capito che le segnalazioni non funzionano postano in continuazione domande risposte e foto altamente inappropriate anche per minori fate qualcosa
