OK, I sent Yahoo a support ticket today, asking when they would come out of Beta. I even suggested they add some more countries (Canada, Great Britain, Australia) while they are still in Beta, to "help things along."
I hold in my hands (snap, crackle) Yahoo's official email reply.
(quoting emails not allowed on WebmasterWorld, so I will put it in my own words)
-not clear when Beta will end. -they have not decided if they shall add Canada, Great Britain, Australia. -they will forward my message to the "development team" for furthur consideration.
So there you have it. WebmasterWorld evening news, Saturday, September 2, 2006.
