i forgot to mention your classless use of 'CLICKBAIT ADS' ....i hope somebody sues u
ahahaha yahoo...it says gathering feedback july 12 last year...u might gather but u
clearly DON"T care....your constant redirects ... annoying/invasive autoplay boring vids...
ruined comments section... superslow loading.... links that don't open...what a mess!
back 10days later...still same problems...super slow, and way fewer comment sections, which often don't work correctly anyways...it appears, you have no intention of fixing your new mess...curious why you even have this feedback section, since almost no one likes your changes...all the clicking to get to 'your' articles, that really aren't 'your articles anyways, you are linking them from other sports sites and adding all your own ads ... imo, you had the best sports/nba site....'had'!?
why do u even ask for all these comments, haven't seen one posititve about your
new format...it's still the same, weeks later....clikking thru tons of ads, limited comment
sections that sometimes don't work ...and the ever envasive autoplay videos...
visits to yahooMBA more infrequent...your comment section is barely functional...
sometimes, it shows it shows 0 past comments...and sometimes it won't open...
and like just now, i hit 'post' and it just disappears...and this was even on a 'good'
Dwyer article... i wanted to compliment him
soooo ...reading Verizon is buying Yahoo....guessing that will bring even
more ads ...
this post by ronald was made last july...they haven't listened or changed anything..
listening to their tech/ad guy is losing YOU/Yahoo viewers....NBA, has gone from the
best site to the worst, in a year...good job...listen to your viewers, and stary by giving
on/off switch to your annoyinhg/invasive autoplay vids...
what i think? is that you don't care about any comments made here...you only wanted any kinks reported so u could iron that out, but you are keeping your advertising laden, slow moving mess...overwhelming negative comments about your changes...gone gone gone are the reasons i came here before ....clik clik clik slow slow slow ... the great comments sections you 'had' will be missed
i have given up, that Yahoo will change anything, or cares about what the overwhelming comments here that don't like your changes......BUT, PLEASE YAHOO, can you scrub your comment sections of the rampant disturbing racist comments ... as long as YOU ALLOW it, these racists will continue to spread their hate and ignorance ...Please be a part of a solution and not part of the PROBLEM...PLEASE
'UNUSABLE' is right!! you have packed all of your pages so full of ads, that loading and scrolling are bogged down.....if i ever find something good about your changes to report, i will certainly do so, but so far, you turned the BEST nbasports page, into the WORST
today!! worse than ever...slugsnail pace .....the invasive auto play vids lock up and won't play or play 2-3 video sounds at once...my browser is even confused trying to figure out what you
have happening...when i leave the page, the video sound keeps playing for about 5 seconds...
messed up ...go back ...and comment section won't even come up
my trips back to yahooNba to see if you fixed this mess yet, will become
less and less frequent ....
clik clik clik clik ...slow slow slow ...no comment section ...clik clik clik...
is Yahoo becoming a middleman for other Nba sites' articles ?
i read i comment...NOW most your articles are from other sites and can't do
yahoo comment...but hey, thanks for listing all these other sites that actually
HAVE articles to read and comment on...are you really just becoming a middle
\man for other site's articles ?
my frequency at coming to Yahoonba has drastically diminished since your
Yahoo...have you had ANY positive responses about your changes ??
i hope you get it worked out before NBA season starts ...it WAS my
go to NBA site
hoping you are listening Yahoo? .. i have enjoyed YahooNba for many years,
especially the boxscores+comments during games ...can't imagine you will keep
many readers with this new format ....clik to read is the worst idea....but scrolling
endlessly to see what articles you offer, which seem to be mainly from 'other' sites??
imo, the thing i found outstanding about your previous format, and why i used it
as primary sports info, was your simplicity/user friendly stat pages, and mostly your
comment section 'was' better than anyones... you had comments on most articles and
was easy/quik to use... since i use Yahoo for email, it also made sign in automatic...
imo, if you de-emphasize the comment section, you take away a sense of participation
in your site ...and often the comments are very insightful
having to clik 2-3 times to get to article...clearly to get more advertisements....
each page has ads.... if that's not it, plz post and tell us why ???!
i am done ... you messed up something was i liked and that was working fine...
will check back to see if you went back...or not...
clearly you readers have spoken...are you listening?
not user friendly...go to simple ...i have enjoyed it for years, especially NBA with the comments during the game, which you removed during the playoffs?? but honestly, if you keep it this way i move ...i just looked at espn, (whom i try to avoid when possible)and their NBA site now gives more info/easier to access...even the twitter feed..and i see they have 'comments' ...please go back to what you had, and make a few tweaks...and ps., putting your writers, exWoj, on the feature videos holds no interest for me ...let them write and report, but really as analysts?..
simple is better ...what's the point of 3 clicks to get to an article i want to read ??
and, during nba playoffs, i quit using your stat page during the game ... is your tech
guy even a sports fan ???
extremely annoying new version...not user friendly...it started with the nba
finals, where u changed the stat page with no user comments....i quit using
it after, after using it for years....
wow..i made a comment on this last year...i see JON made the post last year...
haven't seen any change by yahoo...listening to their tech and ad guys is going
to lose them viewers...already has...(gathering feedback made by yahoo last july)
i give up suggesting this...they think we want to watch a woj analysis, over and over again...
the site loads so slow....the links most redirect ...what a mess...
totally INVASIVE/Aannoying...your autoplay videos....OFF should be default, with ON
as a viewer CHOICE ... i have written multiple letters to your writers about this...i play
music on my computer, i DO NOT want your videos loudly auto playing....did i mention
notice how people are stopping even coming here to comment...quite obvious, u have no intentions of changing.... also obvious you will lose alot of viewers....
yahoo, why did u even create this link to comment on your so called 'improvements' ?? after all this time, it doesn't seem like u have any plans to change it back ...the comments are over whelmingly negative on your changes...like David said, simpler is better .... u have made it slower and worse...
agreed....simple=better .... you might consider having your tech guy look at it
from the viewers' perspective, instead of the advertisers perspective ....because
viewers will leave .... and STOP the invasive autoplay videos
eventually people will quit coming here to post anything...haven't seen even ONE change ...the terribly annoying auto play videos are still happening....very slow loading and scrolling with multiple cliks to OPTIMIZE ALL YOUR ADVERTISEMENTS ... you have effectively made your comment section worse....is putting a viewer option for autoplay OFF/ON SO DIFFICULT?? you had it before...your writers, should WRITE, AND STICK TO WRITING ...START WITH WOJ, GOOD WRITER, BUT WHY ON AUTO PLAY VIDS??? I DON'T SEE THAT ALL THESE COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR IMPROVEMENTS, HAVE IMPROVED YOUR IMPROVEMENTS...
comment section disfunctional...slow...sometimes past comments, sometimes 0...
posted comment today, that just disappeared... it was even a compliment to Dwyer
for an article i liked...
. imo, YOU had the BEST comment section of ANY sports site ...the key word there is HAD...
as BD says in the original post, the problems/flaws are numerous ...

i am sure your previous comment section, could be tweaked/improved....
what you did is not improvement...many articles require me to join another
website to comment ... and biggest of all for me, you removed the comment
section from the NBA stat page ...which i used during the game, to get other
watcher's insights about the game, and make observations....the change not
user friendly...seems advertiser friendly?
the ads are mixed between the articles...great camoflauge, not ...
are most of your articles now, from other sports' websites ??? and no ability
to comment, or lesser ...seems like before, articles i read on yahooNBA i
could comment on, without joining another website ??
i come to read intelligent insightful articles,(mostly NBA) and possibly make/read comments....
if i want to watch a highlight video, it should be MY choice...not autoplay...
seems like some of the writers, like Woj, think i come to watch their talking videos... Not....
make view choice the default..stop the autoplay
Thanks for reporting this issue Roger. I have passed the info to our engineering team for investigation. Please respond to this message with additional examples if it continues to happen. Sorry about the inconvenience.
is this in anyway related to autoplay videos' ...no videos with sound should
come on automatic...viewer choice should be default...if i clik to read an article,
the auto vids are invasive

love soccer...but please apply his suggestion to baseball asap ...another suggestion regarding soccer, would be to post game times on your articles ...and lastly please suggest to the dutch writer with the longggg name, to quit being a dark cloud about everything and everyone...he is really depressing and needs professional help... thankyou
i totally used your boxscore during nba games...perfect/simple with comments...THEN
you changed it, in the middle of playoffs ???! no comments and not user friendly/simple..
and like the post says, get rid of the writer tweets...i have the tv on with expert announcers...
don't need your tweeters...
i feel your pain ...i don't look at golf/woods, but, nba/bryant/lakers.....same thing year after year
Thanks Baj. This should not be happening. Please add any other examples to this thread and i will work with the appropriate people.
