First Yahoo screws with the Flickr ‘old skoolers’ by requiring them to change the login and join Yahoo if they still want to access their accounts (and in the process, asking me to delete one of my accounts instead of giving me the option to merge them) and now this…
Ironically, someone posted what Yahoo did to Digg.com, and then the Digg Army got involved, making the site a pathetic embarrassment.
Not only do they rip off Digg.com, but they actually celebrate it –
That’s changing for Yahoo! — we’ve brewed up a swanky new community-based recipe for collecting feedback that’s making its way across a number of our sites. It started with Yahoo! Autos and has proliferated across 14 other properties.
We call it a Suggestion Board — you can browse suggestions from other site visitors or post your own. Digg-style voting means we can quickly discover what’s most important to users. In addition to reading feedback from other users, you’ll find responses from Yahoo! employees about the issues. Product teams regularly read and take action on your feedback. Though we aren’t always going to immediately act on it, it’s incredibly helpful to us in making the best sites we can… and we’ve even been known to reward great suggestions with some Yahoo! schwag.
Brewed up? Making the best sites you can?
