  1. Fix the copy-paste "newline" bugs in the question and answer editors.

    The new format and new text editors are nice, but they mishandle newline characters in multiple-line pastes. This affects anything with paragraphs, mathematics, computer programming, poetry, etc. in the text, where explicit line breaks are necessary.

    I haven't explored all the failure situations, but it certainly affects many Windows users. And it's not just what some other application puts on the clipboard. Copy-paste from an answer to later in the same answer fails. I mostly answer questions, so I don't use the question editors much. The bug does apply to both the original answer entry box and to the "pop-up"…

  4. 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 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.

  8. Post questions in the category you're in

    I think we should be able to select a category FIRST. Then, post a question that will show up in that category.

    For example, if I am browsing Polls & Surveys and want to ask a question, I think the question should be displayed right there on the P&S feed.

    I hope I made myself clear. :-)

  9. Please fix the glitch where our answers sometimes don't show up for the public.

    I absolutely hate having to sign out of my account just to see if my answer is actually showing up for the public. Sometimes our answers are invisible unless we edit them in some way to make them visible.

  10. Let us upload a cover photo on our Yahoo! Answers profile please.

    I'm getting tired of the purple background on my profile and I wish I could customize it.

  14. Have different colours for badges of different Levels

    I noticed we now have badges showing what Level we are at next to our username in questions. Because the badges are so small(in the mobile version), most of us can't see it without having to squint or look closer. I suggest we have different colours for badges of different Levels.

  15. get rid of this new design. It is thoughtless and annoying.

    I just tried to use it to answer a fairly long question. As I had completed quite a bit of my reply, I forgot a detail and needed to check the question again. As I went back to the question, I lost everything I had already written. Absolutely terrible design flaw. I know a Q&A site and wonder why you didn't use it to get feedback before producing this rubbish. Your ridiculous attempts at improvements are going to ruin the site. Why not pay a decent design firm to put this right? You make a total **** of it every…

  17. Display USER NAME next to question

    Please display the USER NAME of the person asking the question next to the question in listing.
    🌟 Allows us to see if it's posted by Anonymous.
    🌟.Allows us to see if one User is posting all their homework questions.
    🌟This should be easy to implement, and yet it would really help us stay away from Trolls or abusers without Y!A additional programming.

    The idea here is to be able to skip questions without having to open the question just to see it's Anonymous. I personally will not answer any more of these in Math & Science.
    Thank you,
    Jim🖖

  18. LIVE CHAT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR ACCOUNT

    Would love to have live chat to speak to someone about your accounts like optus and telstra does. Be so handy as getting no reply through emails or facebook or twitter from customer care support. Click Votes to make it happen and has to be human not robot and be easier for you too as well as elderly too.
