Yahoo! comments notifications not working

Yahoo! comments notifications not working
Explore video interviews
Advertisements
Yahoo! news articles often have comments sections where people engage in lively conversations and they clearly acknowledge this is the purpose--conversations, as opposed to a one-off guest book comments. Pursuant to this, Yahoo! users have a notification bell that tells them when replies to their comments have occurred and are supposed to, upon selection, take them to the relevant comment and reply. This feature does not work, on neither desktop nor mobile. Thus, if there are more than 20-30 comments on an article, which is often the case (if the article generates lively conversations there will be hundreds and thousands of comments), it is impossible to locate the comments and replies. I complained about this problem to Yahoo! via their email, customercare@***.yahoo.com, and in the past they have replied to inquiries and concerns, like improper censorship (wherein they supposedly restored my comments which they actually didn't do, or, for the same reason, I wasn't able to see if they did, since the notifications couldn't take me there, etc.) and the like. This time, however, I have received no response. I can't be the only one having this problem and this problem makes their comments sections practically useless, as conversations are functionally impossible to have and people are limited to merely engaging in the comments section like a guest book with one off comments.

Cons:
  • Lack of customer service
  • Email and yahoo notes after 1 year inactivity
  • Faulty technology

Preferred solution: I want them to fix their technology, namely the User and Comments notification bell feature, so that selecting notifications actually works and brings the user to the appropriate comments and replies

User's recommendation: Complain to Yahoo! about this and don't settle--they have the ability to make working technology, but choose not to, and thus, their comments sections are almost useless and it is impossible to have conversations, which is the point of them

Agreed. Yahoo comment section still sucks!

About ready to get rid of yahoo and get Proton mail. Absolutely hate yahoo's liberal news media! Yahoo to cheap to hire real moderators for their comment section!

For years yahoo has always used auto censoring software or whatever to censor comments. AOL is just as bad!

Removed "View My Comments" (again)

Yahoo tried this once before and had a billion complaints. They removed the button to view my comments, all of them, all articles. People that comment like to see how others react to their point of view. Without that feedback people will stop commenting. Perhaps that's the corporate motive, but if people can't participate they will stop using Yahoo, just as I have. Why they keep "improving" things that make the experience worse is hard to understand. Yahoo was about as good as it will ever be. From here on out, improving it produces negative results. Like Facebook. It's been "improved" into worthlessness.

What I don't understand is why nobody has called out George Floyd for breaking quarantine. He would have never interacted with police if he had not done that.

The right can't handle what the left has been doing since Trump's covid-19 infection announcement for the following reasons: 1. Trump had his bubble popped about covid-19 not being something to worry about and can't use it anymore in his campaigning because of his infection.

2. Trump ridicules Biden at the debate about mask wearing and then 2 days later he announces he's got covid-19. This is one of the main reasons the left is laughing at him. 3.

Announcements came out about Trump's inner circle having covid-19 infections. Again, another reason for the left to laugh at Trump's administration. 4. The devil can only be teased so much before he bites you in the ***.

Trump pushed the devil to far and got bit. This was the icing on the cake for the left.

I'm not happy he got covid-19, but I don't have any sympathy for him. His pandemic response will be written in history books about how you *don't* do a pandemic response.

Guest

Stopped going to Yahoo after they deleted comments, recommend you do the same and not go back after they put them up again after election.

Guest

How many recounts will the democrats have after Trump is re-elected? Or are they all in on Russia again?

I can't believe that the "no comments" path Yahoo has put us on is still going on. I have to go to other sites to comment on the same articles that Yahoo has because I want to see how others felt about that article.

I'm very disappointed in Yahoo.

I used to brag about yahoo but no longer. Very very disappointed in them consider they have to know how the majority of their followers feel.

Yahoo comment section sucks!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Been with yahoo since the beginning. Been on the comment boards since 2007. Over the years a lot of changes have been with yahoo web site, email, and the comment section. Had to open multiple spam accounts. Because I kept getting band from yahoo's comment boards. Yahoo is so liberal and bias its ridiculous! I alway's hated the thumbs up and thumbs down concept! They finally got rid of the thumbs down and replaced it with a heart. Who *** idea was that? Now they bring the thumbs down back again! Again, who's *** idea was that? The new layout of the comment section sucks! It takes me forever to scroll down to the comment section. Because of the twitter feedback being used as news reports. Yahoo journalism sucks! Bad reporting or incomplete articles! Another thing that bugs me the most. When the word "viral" is over used in a headline! Another thing that bothers me the most commenters always their politics in non related topics! Ever since the 2008 election when president obama had. For the last eight years. Trolls had called me a racist and biggot. Each time I fight back I would get banned. But yahoo lets these liberal trolls get away with! I just wonder how many of these liberal paid trolls get actually get banned? Another that yahoo has been doing. Auto censoring comments. This has been going on for years! Yahoo has the worst layout comment section on the internet! Why yahoo can't hire moderators? Instead of auto censoring? I been to many message boards on the internet alot of them are well designed and easy to navigate! Tired of trolls abusing the thumbs down button!

They cut me off from giving comments even if it a very nice one

Yahoo is censoring the peoples comments if they don't agree with there way which is more of the Right than the Left and you can check that by putting in a comment going for each side and see which one is ok'd by them

Guest

Yahoo hasn't had a comment section since mid 2020

Yahoo sucks!

Yahoo is dishonest by allowing lies and misleading information in their articles. They certainly seem to be supporting Marxist and Communist views.

Totally agree! I am STUCK with this shoddy site of BS Journalism as my original email has been sold so many times and ended up in this ridiculous platform.

Hilarious they shut off comments on 1/2 wit articles.

Whats wrong yahoo, to many normal people commenting on how ridiculous you are? We the people can make up our own minds and have that horrible thing called freedom of speech (for now) or at least we did prior to power hungry *** landing up in the White House.

Fraudlent ad

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Yahoo - Fraudlent ad
Please notify the appropriate people. You have a fraudulent ad on your website. It's the one for the Makita 18V rechargeable refrigerator. It says it's from Bed Bath and Beyond, but it's not. I contacted BB&B yesterday, and they confirmed it's not them. The ad lists the item at 39.99, 49.99 and 59.99. It's $ 824.00 on Amazon. There is no way you could buy one of these for that low of a price, clearance or not. Also of note, is that on the same site, they list guitars, so I took a look. On the Guitar site, they list the types, and also a Vintage Showcase, so I looked there too. They are listing numerous vintage Fender and Gibson Guitars, with photos, all for 39.95, On the one I looked at, I think it was a 1965 or 1966 Fender Strat, it said hurry, only 9 left, and 199 sold in the last 10 days. So,,, how can anyone have that many of the same vintage guitar ? You'd be lucky to get any vintage Fender guitar for under $ 4,000.00.
