  1. I do not wish for emails when others answer -- I have changed preferences and STILL your site will not do what I request. t

    Fire your staff as they cannot follow simple instructions that yahoo has as policy.

  2. stop shoving the discover-tab down our throats

    Nobody asked for the new (may 28, 2020) format, and the regulars who specialise in a few categories need the answer-tab as default. We don't need to be shown the questions that we've already seen/answered

  3. 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

  4. What is the point of having followers, now that you can't see your contacts' activity anymore in the new layout?

    I can no longer see the activity (upvoting, answering) of the users I follow anymore. Bring that back!!

  5. Allow us to delete our questions after people have answered them.

    Currently, if someone has answered a question I have posted, I am unable to delete that question, even if it is a spam answer. This is unacceptable, and I've put up with it for far too long. if I've got nothing but garbage or troll answers, I will never give somebody best answer, anyway, so what's the point?

  6. WHY In GODS name did you change the category leaderboards to reflect total POINTS instead of Total BA's in that category?

    You haven't updated the overall POINT Leaderboards in Years...... yet, you have now changed the Category Leaderboards to reflect POINTS, which is a meaningless Statistic as to why someone LEADS that category. Either UPDATE the overall Leaderboards (and remove all the dead, suspended accounts) or put it back the way it was! Makes ZERO sense!

  7. 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!

  8. Bring back the appeal email so we know our post has been reported and removed. It is sometimes very hard to keep track of your post.

    We should not have to keep track of our appeals to post removed. We should be getting an email to inform us of a post being reported and removed. It was that way in the past and still should be again. It not an extra cost to Verizon. It has already been programmed

  9. You are enabling trolls to abuse the report system!

    What happens if my content is wrongly reported?

    I have received a few standard emails from Yahoo stating:

    "...it has come to our attention that you may have violated the TOS(http://www.yahoo.com/r/ts). Please reread the TOS and cease any use of your account that may
    violate the TOS.
    If your use of your Yahoo! account is brought to our attention again,
    and we believe that such use violates the TOS, then we may terminate
    your account without further notice ..."

    I know that I am being wrongly reported by trolls and I have NO way to appeal this decision.…

  12. Restoring the possibility for 7th level users to move questions to their right section. There are too many trolls who voluntarily post quest

    Restoring the possibility for 7th level users to move questions to their right section.
    There are too many trolls who voluntarily post questions about inappropriate sections.

  14. Penalize Anonymous Post, No Points for Anonymous answer

    Anonymous posters wreak havoc on Y!A. Here's a way to minimize:
    1. Allow Anonymous post, but charge 10 to 20 points. Some Groups need Anon postings.
    2. But DO NOT allow Posts if they have 10 points or below,
    3. AND don't award points for Anonymous answers. Zero, zip, nada.

  19. let Us know which question or answer got deleted

    As opposed to seeing our points randomly drop, let us know what question or answer got deleted and for what reason. This may prevent repeated errors in the future.
