  3. Answers disappear after editing.

    After I submit an answer it appears in the list of answers beneath the question and can be seen by anybody. However, after editing the answer only appears in the list as seen by me and to everybody else it becomes invisible ! I know many other posters have the same problem. Very disheartening after significant time and effort spent on an answer. Is there anything that can be done to correct this ?

  4. Compulsory "Unique" Usernames

    I think Yahoo / Oath should make it compulsory for users to have a unique username. Currently, there is a user going around cloning several users in the Lesbian, Gay, ******** and Transgender category.

    This is total misrepresentation of character and defamation. If we had a unique username policy, this wouldn't happen so easily.

    This is a cloned version of my own account "Nerdy Keith":

  7. This isn’t really feedback as I just need a specific thing taken care of: I really need to delete a question that was posted on my account.

    This was an old account of mine that I was going to allow my little brother to use for his video game email verification stuff (Xbox, PS4, his Switch etc.) and I guess he wound up using it to vent some of his frustrations about my former step mother (his birth mother) without my knowledge. I’d like to be able to delete the question he’s asked to avoid family drama. I’m not sure if this was the correct page to ask this, as I’m not asking for a permanent function to delete questions, but I need one SPECIFIC question removed…

  8. Why cant I access Yahoo from my phone?

    I can see questions from my tablet just fine but can't see any questions or answers on my phone and this never used to be a problem only in the past couple of days.

  9. Please can you slacken your censorship of words just a little

    Some words on here that are even remotely lewd get censored to just asterisks and it’s getting annoying seeing this in posted ideas. I understand blocking some of the really vulgar and even racist language, but some words that are just descriptive of the content and are not offensive in themselves get censored too. Nobody here is going to be THAT offended, if they are then they should just get a backbone. It’s hard to read ideas and take them seriously with all these asterisks. Only censor what is explicitly offensive and people actually report.

  10. If you block somebody then it prohibits you from commenting on any of their questions or answers also.

    And if you block somebody they're questions and answers should become invisible to you you won't be able to see their questions or their answers or comment on their questions and answers if you block them. That goes for anybody fair is fair.

  12. 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?

  14. stop sending meaningless warnings

    Tell us WHICH guideline we "may" be violating instead of

    "...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 ..."

  17. I keep getting a "Something went wrong. Please try again later." message every time I try to post.

    Please fix this issue. It happened for multiple questions of mine which I couldn't post.

  18. 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. :-)

  20. 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.…
