    Loving the White Board more and more.

    A couple clarifications folks...

    -Yahoo is not owned by Comcast - Yahoo is a publicly traded company.

    -This was a not a "space decision"... As previously noted, this change was based on user feedback for two years, and, helps our products be part of the same family. Nothing to do with space, bandwidth, etc.

    -We already made a few changes earlier this week that are now in production, and those changes were to address issues we heard about through user feedback.

    -While we understand that mid-season timing isn't perfect, please realize there's no 'perfect' time... This is actually the one time of the year where only one of our full season games is actually in season.

    -We will continue to iterate and make improvements.

    Travis, they are coming. As an employee, I cannot provide you an exact date, but we will be launching them for football this year.

    Hello folks,

    I'll repost what I posted on another thread here...

    We are not bringing back the black theme. If that means you're moving on, we're sorry to hear that. We certainly hope you don't leave but that's your call to make.

    When we launched the dark theme awhile back, users begged for us to bring back the 'classic' theme. To be very clear, the classic theme was never coming back. The code that supported it was old, full of bugs and it's now gone. To address concerns with the dark theme change, we rolled out the white theme choice, but it was never intended to replace the classic version since that theme and code was deprecated.

    At this time, we will continue to build off the new white theme; there will be changes live early next week based on feedback we've read here and other social channels. There will be more updates coming over the next few weeks as well...we are listening.

    Finally, as an employee, I'm not required to post on these boards on my own time. I'm willing to continue to do so if your feedback is helpful and constructive - saying it sucks, I should be fired, and you hate it doesn't help me with feedback I can bring to the team. We will continue to iterate and make improvements.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hey all, to coincide with yesterday's launch of Yahoo Daily Fantasy we have updated the theme of our Full Season fantasy products as well.

    This not only helps our products be part of the same family, but addresses some of the feedback we've received since releasing our dark theme.

    Please use this thread as a place to leave feedback or report bugs, however if you'd prefer you can also add a suggestion to our Fantasy Baseball user voice forum.

    Thanks for continuing to choose Yahoo Fantasy!
