  2. PLEASE stop posting photos of abused animals on welcome screen!

    Many AOL users keep asking AOL to stop posting photos of abused or starving animals on the Welcome Screen, yet AOL continues to do so. There is no way to opt out of seeing these horrific photos, so you sign onto AOL and the first thing you see is a photo of an abused dog or other animal. I'm not sure any AOL administrator actually sees our requests on this because all we ever get is the robotic answer, "Thank you for your feedback." If any human AOL employee sees this, PLEASE do something about posting these horrific photos of…

  5. Preferences for Welcome Screen and AOL Benefits

    Suggesting that a possible selection in settings to disable the welcome screen appearing when signing in. I have defaulted to go directly to mail, however, there remains a default to the welcome screen in backdrop. This is rather annoying as I can still see it and my attention is then directed to the welcome screen to make an action to close it .

    Another suggestion is that an alternative news source be available to AOL members to have a discounted subscription to CRTV.
    This would allow members to customize their welcome screen to their preferences and would make the AOL…

  6. adobe flash

    Can AOL please stop with the reminder that Adobe Flash is not installed? Flash was discontinued by Adobe at the end of 2020. They recommend that it should be uninstalled, since it is (was) a buggy product and a security risk.

  7. How do I block Politics, Government and Corruption from Welcome Page when signing-in to aol?

    When it comes to freedom of choice, It would be nice for AOL to be recognized as the World Leader in Customer Satisfaction Rating for Providing Internet Service by empowering subscriber to regain control over their sign-in welcome page by providing additional categories to select as their default Welcome Screen when signing-on to AOL.
    Our Nation has more positive and uplifting choses to learn, share and report than choosing to make a living off some people flaws, many are lacking and other people misery.

    I don't want advertisements for women's underwear. I think it is inappropriate to have these ads on the welcome screen. Please give me some option for removing ads that I think are not appropriate.

  16. Welcome window "News" window keeps moving when paging throuugh articles

    The News window now has been changed to a smaller size and keeps moving when paging through the news articles so as to hit ads all the time. Very clever idea..NOT. Now have watch the arrows or you hit ads..Why this change? Please change back to original News window so it doesn't move around in the Welcome window.
