  1. Allow us to block Anonymous answerers!

    A lot of times, our questions are filled with troll answers who go Anonymous. This way, we can't block them and they continue to troll in our questions.

    If we can block Anonymous users, this problem will be solved!

  2. WHY In GODS name did you change the category leaderboards to reflect total POINTS instead of Total BA's in that category?

    You haven't updated the overall POINT Leaderboards in Years...... yet, you have now changed the Category Leaderboards to reflect POINTS, which is a meaningless Statistic as to why someone LEADS that category. Either UPDATE the overall Leaderboards (and remove all the dead, suspended accounts) or put it back the way it was! Makes ZERO sense!

  3. Get rid of the user who is stalking me

    For quite some time now, a particular user has been impersonating me in R&S. Not only does this person think it is funny to clone me and steal my profile pictures, he is actively trying to get me reported and suspended as the imposter.

    His account is the level two top contributor account, most likely because he point games to compensate for the points I get taken away from him for impersonating me. I want the account suspended. I want future accounts with my name on them deleted unless they can answer some basic questions about me.

    If Verizon cannot…

  4. So whats up with comments? Matter of fact.... why is this site so messed all the time? My jokes are being deleted and are perfectly legal.

    Why don't you fix the TROLL problem on this site. We harmless people are being punished because your site favors them. DO SOMETHING FOR GOD'S SAKE!

  6. Penalize Anonymous Post, No Points for Anonymous answer

    Anonymous posters wreak havoc on Y!A. Here's a way to minimize:
    1. Allow Anonymous post, but charge 10 to 20 points. Some Groups need Anon postings.
    2. But DO NOT allow Posts if they have 10 points or below,
    3. AND don't award points for Anonymous answers. Zero, zip, nada.

  10. 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?

  12. Bring back Best Answers

    Nothing more uplifting/encouraging than seeing your answers voted as 'best'. Inspires a person to keep helping/posting

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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!
