The message boards are now called Conversations. You can access Conversations on the tab below the interactive chart.

Yahoo URLs for finance message boards return different pages

In Chrome -> https://finance.yahoo.com/mb/IBM/

returns an old style page with up to date messages.

 

In firefox the same URL

    https://finance.yahoo.com/mb/IBM/

gets redirected to another page

   https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/IBM/community?ltr=1

which is days out of date

 

I want the old style up to date messages. Why does the page get redirected?

Finance Message Boards Destroyed -- How Do I Get Back To Them?

I cannot access the finance message board for LVLT.  All I get is a garbage chart and some old messages from accounts I put on ignore a long time ago.  I try to access: http://finance.yahoo.com/mb/lvlt

and instead get redirected to: http://finance.yahoo.com/quote/LVLT/community?ltr=1

which is worthless.  Not only is my ignore list ignored but the messages are ten days old and I know that more current ones were posted.

 

Is it possible to get back to the old message board or should I just delete my account and move on?

Re: Where are the Message Boards?

"CONVERSATIONS"????? I'm better off talking to the wall instead of Yahoo.

Are ALL Yahoo finance M/B's impacted???

 

The "conversations" tab is useless, worthless !  Smiley Sad

 

I have MONEY invested in stocks.

I want ,need to see the M/B's.

 

With out  those M/B's , I have no use for Yahoo !

Nixon???? A disgraced former president?  Smiley Happy

OK , how do I change " conversations" back to M/B????

 

ASSUME you have real money in IBM; do you want to look at a randomly (?) selected conversation from 2 months ago????

 

If you said yes, sell your stock and invest in a brain implant.

 

About that Yahoo staff, don't ask for suggestions for what to do with the staff. That's my suggestion.

Re: Where are the Message Boards?

Hi @sensennyc - it is not possible to revert to the previous Message Board format.  We appreciate your feedback and ask that you post it out on the Yahoo Finance Feedback forum where Product managers are looking for feedback: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/382977 Thank you.

Re: Where are the Message Boards?

There should be a way to collapse the conversations so you can see just the topics, otherwise it is annoying to scan the huge wall of text that now appears, since the opening message of each "conversation" now shows, taking several lines, rather than the convenient topic headings that made it easy to scan the message boards.  A change should be an improvement , not worse.

Re: Where are the Message Boards?

Nixon, you have to tell your colleagues that this new finance setup is horrible. Where are the old message boards??? This new "conversations" setup is AWFUL!!! it is nothing like the old YMB, and at least right now, it is not showing most of the topics/replies in the old board.  GO BACK!!!  without the old YMB, I have no reason to ever use YF.  .  I can use Seeking Alpha, CNN Money, etc to get prices, and I get better option data from Nasdaq directly.  THE ONLY REASON I USE YF IS FOR THE MESSAGE BOARDS WHERE I GET USEFUL INFORMATION AND DIALOGUE ON A DAILY BASIS. I suspect that I speak for most everyone who uses YF when i say: YOU WILL LOSE THE MAJORITY OF YOUR USERS IF YOU DO NOT REVERT TO THE OLD MESSAGE BOARD FORMAT.
