  2. 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. 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.…

  5. Ignore user feedback!

    Instead of listening to what your users are telling you and actually doing something about it, you should get your programmers to do pointless trivial things that nobody wants, such as making the word Christmas appear in two colours wherever it appears.

    Unlike most of the suggestions made by users here, I have every confidence that you will actually implement this one!

  6. let Us know which question or answer got deleted

    As opposed to seeing our points randomly drop, let us know what question or answer got deleted and for what reason. This may prevent repeated errors in the future.

  7. Bring back the feature telling me when I'm at my question limit

    One of the things that have recently been lost With this overhaul of profile pages is something I found quite useful in the past. When I was at my question limit, I could look at my profile and find that out without trying to post a question and failing. Now Oath has seen fit to remove that feature, and I want it back.

  11. Are you afraid the comments will hurt your left leaning agenda?

    I have changed my home page because you dropped the comments on yours. I am now sending your advertisers that I have left your home page for the reason and they might want to stop advertising on your site. I haven't changed my email address yet, but if you don't bring back the comments I will change that as well. Is this because the comments show how left leaning your site is?

  12. Stop allowing haters the ability to cause answers to be deleted with loss of points.

    Several of my answers are being deleted each day along with loss of points because some hater out there does not like my well reasoned and documented answers. I recommend that Yahoo turn off the ability to do this.

    If we can not comment on fake news or hypocrisy of the #corruptliberalmedia or voice our support for our President because Yahoo is 99.9% negative when we read it....Not clicking on anything.
