I’d pay Yahoo for this.

Yahoo’s been my homepage for 6 years now, and they’ve been my email provider for that long as well.

I’ve been having serious issues with Yahoo email, (I’m sick of typing in the random charactor string everytime I send an email), I’ve tried the Yahoo beta email, but I don’t like waiting 45 seconds for it to load up, so I went back to the old version….I know I should just switch, but I hate change as well…

but in any case, I’d pay Yahoo if they’d kill that huge top banner on my yahoo homepage….less scrolling for me.

I’d also pay them if when I clicked on "Check Email" they’d bring me right to the inbox…why do I have to go to this middle screen where I’ve then got to click on "inbox"?


I know, I should quit bitching about yahoo email and just switch to gmail…I know, I know….

Who’s your homepage, and would you pay them to kill all the banner crap from it so you had a clean advertising free page?

    Best homepage: blank homepage. It starts fast, you can quickly go anywhere you want thru bookmarks and hotkeys.

    I’ve tried MSN homepage, Google, and Yahoo – and in the end they are all annoying and slow. Slower than a blank page, at least….

    And yes, you should switch to Gmail!

    My homepage is google and since there are no ads, I definitely wouldn’t pay them to kill any 🙂

    Google is lightning quick for me, and I can personalize it with some of my favourite RSS feeds.

    I can’t stand that either! Don’t we know people at yahoo that can fix that?

    Yahoo is on my S-list big time right now. My account (which I’ve had for oh, 8 years) was just deactivated due to a TOS violation on an ancient one page site that was so old I’d forgotten it even existed. It had a redirect in place to an affiliate site, which apparently is against Yahoo TOS. I don’t even know if Yahoo owned Geocities at the time I put the redirect in place.

    Numerous emails and phone calls later… nothing. It’s incredibly infuriating. >:-(

    Not only have I had the account for years, but I also spend thousands on PPC ads with them. I also had an issue this summer that cost my over $1K due to a misunderstanding of how the PPC ad update process works, and nothing was ever resolved there, either.

    I’ve slowly been moving my machines from defaulting to my.yahoo.com to http://www.google.com/ig. I still like My Yahoo, but I would definitely not use their mail.

    I prefer the myYahoo page. I can have all of my RSS Feeds show along with my mail from yahoo. To me it is the best of all worlds 🙂

    Yea, that’s what I’ve been using…yahoo homepage with all my rss feeds…but might be switching to google soon.
