Who to Start Message Board
Just a heads up... emailing Yahoo will NOT correct the issue. At least not yet, although they are apparently working on it.
The following are from Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Rules.
As you will see, currently, Yahoo has nothing to do with position eligibility. It is all done through their data provider...
Current Rule that applies...
Players may be eligible at multiple positions during the current Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Hockey season. Initial position eligibility was determined based on past participation and information supplied by the teams during the off-season.
* All position eligibility requests are reviewed, compiled and forwarded to our data provider who makes the final decision on position eligibility.
* Please understand since Yahoo! is not responsible for modifying position eligibility, we cannot speculate on future changes or comment on the decisions made regarding individual player(s).
* There are no set criteria (minimum number of games, minutes, etc. at a new position) for position eligibility. A new position will be added when our data provider determines that a player's primary position has changed.
* Players will never lose position eligibility during the current Fantasy Hockey season, which means they can be played at either their old or new positions for the remainder of the season.
We appreciate your feedback. While we'd much rather address each request personally, it's simply not practical given the nature of the review process. Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel free to email me again.
They are however working on it, with no time frame provided, as noted in this section of the Fantasy Hockey Rules...
Position Eligibility Updates
Last Updated: October 15, 2010
We are working on an enhancement that will enable Yahoo! to assign multiple position eligibility in real time. We are not able provide an ETA on implementation as of yet, but we will continue to update this article as new information becomes available.
Rest assured, it is our top priority to ensure that our player positions in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Hockey are accurate.
Just a heads up...
