Have had really good rankings on several pages in yahoo (ie in the first page) however this week my pages have dropped considerably to rankings in the 50s.
Is anyone having the same issue? I have not done any changes to these pages, so don't know why this is happening.

Yes, we have experienced the same thing. It started late yesterday into last night.

Right now our best guess is that Yahoo has implemented a new process of sorting through your links, and if they don't like what they find you’re sent down. But at this point we really don't know what has triggered this.

Just one site, or multiple sites?

If you had more than one site, was there any linking between them?

More than a little moving around on Yahoo. Mostly good clean up it seems, but in at least one place I see a pile of the trash removed is hanging on, and/or just been added back. Some drops or rises could be explained by junk networks being removed or getting many pages in.

thanks for all the feedback, good to know i am not alone on this. Any ideas how to get rankings back up? Should i just wait and see if they come back up on there own, or perhaps give the pages a bit of a re-vamp, bit nervous about doing this incase it causes them to bomb out even more?

It's difficult to say...
I noted that moving to CSS helps.
