Why can I not see the most recent questions people ask?

after a couple questions asked that are a few minutes old, the rest are at least a week old. my friend is on to, same category, but has a huge selection of current questions within the hour. I have the setting set on the most current answer. any one else have this problem?

    A week ago, it was supposedly because they were updating their spam filters. (See source link)

    It WAS a little better. Then today, I noticed that a bunch of questions I answered AND notifications are missing!! The questions are also missing, so I’m guessing, your question disappeared along with a bunch of others.

    I’ve only been on ya a few weeks, & have become, way too familiar with these ‘glitches’ (from a victim’s standpoint, 🤨lol)

    Does anyone know if the missing questions & answers, come back, after they ‘fix’ things❓

    I had an answer to one of my questions, appear in my notifications... but everytime I’ve checked my question, it isn’t there.

    I just checked, it’s still not there, and the notification is still there, as well.

    There’s also a possibility, someone removed it.

    It's actually a well posted about glitch that you don't see the posts about because they keep disappearing. The glitch has happened before (in past years), several times, but could take weeks to resolve. Oath is aware of it, but we don't know when it will be fixed. If you click on a main category, instead of a subcategory, you will see at least some more recently asked questions, even when they aren't visible in the subcategory question list (feed).

    This has been going on for WEEKS now - whether Yahoo is deliberately trying to self-destruct or just get rid of people who come here I have no idea but it's BEYOND TIME for this glitch, which is what it is presumably, to be fixed. Enough already.

    One of many reoccurring glitches on YA. It has been going on for over a week.

    I am seeing the same problem... especially in the Entertainment and Music section. It's weird.
