View Full Version : New Yahoo format sends stock plummeting!

my feeble attempt at humor for the title
Stock message boards on yahoo have always been worthless. Now they change the format, and everyone complains. Not to encourage anything other than this excellent board, and Cramers general wisdom, if you must delve into the gutter they brought back investorsvillage.

I just wanted to riff about the yahoo change in general. Again, this site (Cramersmadmoney.com) is the BEST.
Also, tips are for waiters.

Yeah, most people don't like change. I'm slowly getting used to their new board format.

Their beta maps are horrible. I like the new page though.

The one stock i follow on Yahoo message boards basically doesn't even work anymore. You cannot get the recent posts, or get to the normal board. Total mess. Not sure what they were thinking. It's like the new format took technology from 1987 and brought it to today. It is pathetic!!

I think it looks great.

I like the new chart format but I am not happy about how long is required to load.

I must be on a different site than you guys. The one I am on (BEL) is a huge step backwards. Looks like something from 15 years ago. Maybe it's a mistake or something but it is aweful.

I saw the new format for the charts yesterday but they never did work for me. Today I can't even find them. I think they must have taken them down for repairs. Im glad that they are going to work in firefox unlike the msn stock screener.

Yahoo is awful, and I love Yahoo so I hate this
Its email beta takes forever to load and reload when you come back
Its Bookmarks are a pain to edit
Message Board: mean and nasty and illiterate
RSS? Gawd awful
On and on and on ad nauseum
Cf this with Google:
Calendar: ez to update
You can now quickly sync and edit your FireFox Bookmark and between computers--of course, via Google
Why is Yahoo handing an ez win to Google
So many LITTLE things could be done by Yahoo's programers -- It is as if they have no damn clue to the concept "user friendly" -- It is as if Yahoo's programers are living in the past when the user could be ignored
Yahoo's Finance is still the overall best--at this writing--give Google Finance time and Yahoo will suck here
COME ON, YAHOO -- STOP ROLLING OVER TO GOOGLE!!
