  1. Automatically award top answer after some period of time

    Many times a person gets a number of good answers, then never awards an answer, leaving that question 'open'.

    I suggest after a week/month/whatever, AND there are answers given, then the highest-rated answer be automatically awarded and the question closed.

  3. It is unfortunate that there is no real help section in all Yahoo Answers

    The only help they provide is for appeals and the yahoo product, but not for other problems.
    There is a user who deletes questions massively and suspends accounts for simple pleasure, and Yahoo does nothing about it. He calls himself "TheEnglishMan" and has maybe more than 200 multi-accounts.

    This is just one of his many accounts
    https://mx.answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=i8h4tT0naa

    It is currently causing many problems in the religion and spirituality section of Spain and Latin America, filling the section with many bad taste questions, about politics but very offensive and rude, sometimes it puts violent, bloody images and sometimes pornography, including child…

  5. Allow us to block the actual user of Anonymous

    Y!A knows the username/login of anyone asking questions or providing answers.

    When we select 'block', Y!A should block that actual username/login.

    That block should block all posts and answers from them showing up!

  6. 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.

  7. Most of Yahoo Brasil users and I are in favor of removing the "anonymous" option. Because this option only benefits trolls

    Please. Remove the "anonymous" option from Yahoo Brazil. This option means that we are unable to block troll users. This option is rarely used by serious users. Many of my friends at Yahoo Answers are leaving the site because of this, too many troll users. Yahoo Brazil has to take some action in this regard, otherwise the site tends to get worse. In addition, it is necessary to permanently block users who violate the laws of the site.

  8. Allow people to delete or edit their own questions or comments posted on them

    If a person asks a question and somebody else doesn't like it or if somebody posts in objectionable comment or answer to your question the person that posted the question should be able to modify his question if there's something wrong with it or it's objectionable or to delete the objectionable comment. Without using the extremely poor quality report system.

  9. Pay real money for questions and answers

    There's websites out there that pay real money for you to answer questions or to ask them.
    It would be nice if Yahoo answers did the same thing instead of giving you points which are practically worthless. And serve only to make an unhealthy competitive atmosphere if you paid a few pennies for your questions and answers there wouldn't be competition

  11. 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.

  12. Change "Transgendered" in the Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgendered catagory to "Transgender"

    "Transgendered" is an outdated term that is disliked by trans people. It makes it sound like being trans is something that was "done to us." Please consider making this change, as I believe it would make many people feel more at home here.

  14. Create a feature to hide the questions and answers of those you choose to block

    For instance the mental health spammer who wastes all the space if I block him I should not have to look at his questions and answers make them invisible to me on Yahoo

  20. Yahoo censorship.

    I get you people deleting comments when they make liberals look silly being as you're way left. But I left several comments on a **** story. I didn't insult anyone, use foul language or start a riot. But yet, you censored two lengthy comments for reasons I don't understand. You can't pull a comment because of one word. You need to know the context in which it was used. Fortunately I load yahoo because it can be pretty entertaining, how about you shift a little closer to the First Amendment and let people express what they feel with no bad…
