Dear Yahoo.... please note?

We the regular contributors to your site HATE this new layout.

If you are going to use it then you should add the benefits of the old screen as well..

You cannot email any of the members.

You cannot see your old answers now. If I go into My Activities it only tells me that I answered a question, but it doesn't say what and therefore I cannot see the activity on a certain question without finding it on the original page again.

You cannot edit your answers without it pushing up into one paragraph.

All in all.... BRING BACK THE OLD ONE.

I do like the photo bit though.... so you can keep that...

Feel free to report this anyone, as yahoo will then see it...lol..

What do the rest of you think. ?

Update:

You can get on to the old system by going into a link ...

    I changed to YA Australia because it's still in the old format.

    The new format is horrible. It's not user friendly.

    I received a violation notice for saying I think there will be a mass exodus from YA due to the new format. I'll probably get another violation for daring to mention it here. Oh well!

    Well said Lorraine. I think everyone in unanimous in hating the new look Yahoo answers.

    I think Yahoo should put it to the community vote!

    I also think if they keep it, a lot of members will disappear.

    I just wonder why they sought to fix something that was not broke. Jmo.

    PS;I am using the old formula at the moment but I do go onto the new one to try and work it out but get so annoyed and frustrated i soon change back the old formula again. Can we get up a petition?

    I agree 100%! If anybody wants to use the normal, wonderful green site, NOT the purple ugly one, just go to Canada, Australia, India, ect.

    I was going to post this myself! As an ex-top contributor and someone that goes on Yahoo every day, I would LOVE to see the purple site GONE. Maybe then I can live in my own country, America? ;)

    Also stunning picture of that Rottweiler. Is he yours, or just some random dog you happened to take a picture of? Either way, really beautiful dog.

    Agree, the change for the worse apart from adding pictures. Nice Rottweiler by the way.

    I hate the new layout which was there for me to “enjoy” the “benefits” of for the first time today. I quickly bypassed it by using Canada to get to the old style. If this is going to be rolled out to all the countries that backdoor will be closed.

    I am actually using the old old Format and i am not using the new lay out for Yahoo .So i don't have any of the above problems .

    But for the people that do its very easy to go back to the old way .

    What a stunning looking dog in that picture .

  • 7 years ago

    Agreed.

    I like to edit my answers and it's a PITA that when i do, the nicely paragraphed answer becomes one hulking mess that no one wants to read. Then you can't go back and fix it.

    I also don't like that i can't seem to widen the answer box so i can see most (if not all) of the answer i typed out. I have to SCROLL to read through it and it annoys me.

    Do we know if this is just a test run? Will they be fixing it?

    About the only thing i like about it is the photo thing.

    I hate it too Lorraine, there is no way to review the answers There is no spell check and my spelling is atrochious.

    How can I look at an askers profile?

    How do we report vulgar questions?

    Perhaps I will eventually learn how to use this, or perhaps I will just give up.

    This new format is horrible, so we all need to start calling yahoo and emailing them, I want the old look back.

    You cannot do anything but answer now, it is bad.

    I agree with you,,, but there is nothing we can do.

    Yahoo is changing everything now.

    I personally am thinking of leaving yahoo and finding a new home page.

    This new crap really sucks and I hope every one complains about it.

  • 7 years ago

    AGREE!! I feel like I don't know what I'm doing with this new layout. Why change when the other was just fine?

Still have questions? Get answers by asking now.
