  1. 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".

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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?

  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. how can i get rid of the ads on the right side /?

    let both the list that appears on the left side and the ads that appear on the right side be drop-down panels so that you can see everything yu are writing and not have bouncy ads distracting you. and hiding part of your test.

  18. Remove the new format, and let us see our question history

    Under the ridiculous new format, we are required to take several extra steps just to reach our own Answers profile pages, and it's stupid.

    Why doesn't Yahoo hire Conservative Journalists rather than Crazy Left wing extremists? Sick of reading lies about our president. Yahoo should really try reporting real news such as OANN does every day.
