  1. Yahoo just scuttled a primary motivator for posting to Yahoo Answers

    Someone, probably a new MBA who wears bow ties and suspenders, scuttled the "best answers" section on Answers. In doing so, the site lost a primary motivator for participation. I'm a level 7 member and have been a member for quite a long time. The first thing I check on sign-in is my new or no best answers. This guides me to the areas where I am most helpful and motivates me to continue adding answeres to help others. Someone has taken away the coach's half-time motivational pitch, and I'm much less inclined to "win one for the Gipper". While…

  3. Bring back the comments!

    Yahoo suppose to be a neutral platform for peoples views to be heard and shared, not suppressing it. What is the difference with dictatorship when readers are not allow to comment??

  4. Return Notifications!

    I like knowing what answer won best answer and seeing the questions I answered. So many questions are not being posted. I used to get 20 a page, now it's only 10 before they repeat.

  7. Please suspend the account of an individual named LAN Who continuously belittles people in the mental health section and cancer

    Virtually every answer of his is a violation and yet the site does nothing to remove him. This is the individual's account. They go by the name LAN. They routinely bully people with cancer and mental health questions including encouraging people who say they are going to commit suicide to follow through with it. This should absolutely be grounds to have their account suspended. PLEASE SUSPEND THIS PERSON----https://answers.yahoo.com/activity/questions?show=j3Nh99eeaa

  8. Automatically remove deleted accounts from the lists for following/followers/blocked

    In my blocked list there are some users whose accounts are inactive, and i cannot remove them from there, as the [Unblock] button has disappeared.

    In this case if a user's account is deleted for some reason, then his account should be automatically removed from the lists of active users - in following/followers/blocked.

    Or at least add a [Clean] button, to do that manually in your profile - to remove all inactive accounts from these lists - Following/Followers/Blocked.

  9. 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

  16. 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!

  17. 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.…

  19. Bring back comments.

    Yahoo was my homepage until they suppressed reader comments. I thought it was the one site that allowed free speech (comments). Very disappointed with Yahoo. I now spend less than 1/5 of my news reading on Yahoo. Very disappointed.

  20. The opportunity to continue conversations via email should be reintroduced.

    Being able to ask further questions or have further discussions with a member was a productive option to help others understand your view point. I miss this option.
