  5. Allow us to change the phone suggestions from mobile, work, home etc to other options

    Allow us to change the phone "type" suggestions from mobile, work, home etc to other options such as Member Services, main lobby, guard station etc. Many times companies have many numbers and suggestions like WORK do not help us to know what number to call.

  6. Someone is using our Business name on your pay per click and directing customers to a different website. How can I report this ?

    Have a Report button for this type of activity as it is very difficult to get this issue resolved

  7. Contact us

    You have a "talk to a live agent" link for a program that costs 4.99 if a member is not able to resolve issue using the decision tree. How about not using 4 different sites to give people info? Remove the fluff it's too much! Short sweet straight to the point and start off asking for donations. Then when and if you show the team is worth something you start with 2.99 and start going up based on your survey ratings. I've been with Yahoo 20 years and I've been hacked and I'm leaving all of you because none of…

  10. I keep getting notices that appear to say others have been trying to access my account. Why can't I contact a person to find out the problem

    I keep getting notices that appear to say others have been trying to access my account. Why can't I contact a person at Yahoo to find out the problem?

  14. YA seems to strip returns and spaces from my answers. When I go back to edit the format, my answer becomes invisible.

    Keep answerer's format. YA seems to strip returns and spaces from my answers. I have put them there for readabllity.
    When I go back to edit the format back to original, my answer is now properly formatted, but becomes invisible to other users due to another long known but un-corrected glitch. Nasty catch 22.

  16. Instead of showing how long ago something was posted, show the exact time and date

    For example, Instead of it saying posted 2 days ago, it should say posted October 1, 2019 at 11:00 PM, or something like that.

  17. Correct new User Interface grammar

    The new user interface introduced in September 2019 invites users to submit answers if none have been received yet by saying "There's no answers yet". That's poor English grammar.

    Since "answers" is plural, it should say "There're no answers yet" or "There are no answers yet".

  18. Fix the country server glitch

    Currently, if a question is posted from a different country server and I click on it, the next page I click on will be on the same country server. It's a minor nuisance to me, but really? Why, Yahoo?

  20. 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…
