window to type post not tall enough to view post; also no preview window
In the new format, when typing in a post, the field to type in is only about three lines high and does not expand. There is also no preview option. so when typing you can only see a few lines of your post at a time.
This needs to be fixed! note: the field i'm typing in here has a scroll bar - not so for the other one - please fix it!!!!!!! it's terrible. and is going to lead to errors.
I would like to add that when yahoo's filter removes a post that you recently posted, it would be nice if it told you at the time of posting with a message like this: 'This post has failed yahoo's filter, due to the following word(s): ......'
what usually happens to me is I type a big long post and it appears to post but then upon refreshing the thread it isnt there. Would be nice if the filtering happens when you click post, and the 'success' doesnt happen till it passes the filter.
Agree. Not enough space to post and the limit is ridiculous
Go back to the old format.

This person explained a problem very well.
I like to proofread or preview. If I don't, there
are mistakes. Hate it when that happens!
Also when we read books we see the word **** and stuff; what's the big deal?
Increase the size of the window. It's impossible, when typing a message, to proofread it before posting. There is no way to scroll through the message! When finished, you must hit the "post message" button and pray that you haven't made any mistakes. If there is a mistake made, Yahoo doesn't give the poster any means to edit the errors in the postig. It's utterly ridiculous.
What benefit is there to see only 3 lines of at a time when posting? Seriously--if I wanted to post from my phone, I would. But when using a fill sized computer, I should be able to see what im posting
I don't know Alex, I would say that the "spammers" or posters that were getting away with ***Everything*** are the ones that are most "Unhappy" with the new changes! Seems like you are cutting Yahoo way short on their efforts here. But the taller window as "PleaseFixThis" stated is a good idea.
Agreed. Each improvement gets worse. The only people that seem happy are the spammers.
