    Verizon's buying Yahoo!

    by dee 5 hours ago
    T J Ritter T J Ritter 2 hours 31 minutes ago Flag

    Its all speculation at this point dee, but its likely we'll see a merger of Yahoo-AOL services, then rebranded under the Verizon or another creative name....of course that's all pending approval by the FTC. They rejected an earlier Comcast-Time Warner deal, then approved the AT&T-DirectTV merger, so.....Usually the approval period, without delays, is a 60-90 day window. So I wouldn't expect football to be affected at all.....given that what is started won't see many immediate changes. But hockey? basketball? Given that Yahoo is a partner to both the NBA/NHL, I see complications on the horizon. Then of course everything will be a "reboot" top-to-bottom for 2017. Sorry dee, that means kiss Golf & NASCAR bye bye...they were going to kill these THIS year till the last minute...I don't see them being offered in 2017.

    Where's the Commissioner's Note?

    by GranWIZ Jun 20, 2016 8:31 PM
    T J Ritter T J Ritter 6 hours ago Flag

    No, it WAS that way before, but numerous complaints caused the change. Two things to keep in mind though, whenever you publish a Commissioner's Note, an e-mail copy is sent to EVERY OTHER member of your league UNLESS they do NOT allow this in their team settings. Also,for MOST leagues they want the Commissioner changes visible to prevent cheating by the commish (such as using tools to drop players without your permission)...and since this has become more prevalent, the change was made.

    Get Rid of Auto Renew!

    This is monitored easily. Click on "Managers" tab, and look at their last activity (all the way on the right). If a member logged on and made any changes, that would show up in activity.

    Treat it like you are transferring a team to a new manager and utilize the transfer team feature. The manager will get and accept the invite to his new e-mail address.

    How to make my custom league viewable?

    by Erik Strunck Jul 24, 2016 3:49 PM

    In Commissioner tools, under League Management, I think the 7th or 8th line down, is an option to Publish League. This of course can ONLY be done pre-draft and while league is NOT finalized.

    DO I Get Avisail Garcia's HR

    I didn't think he'd get the resumed game, but why wouldn't he get the regular game if he played today? A resumed game is not scored the same way a DH is.

    Steve H, pretty sure. In essence they have two games today....the stats attained today in the resumed game will apply to Saturday's results....that's the procedure for suspended games when finished during the same game week. Then the second/regularly scheduled game today...Garcia SHOULD be available to his team....I wouldn't rely on Stat-tracker tho as that would definitely be messed up.

    Updated Yahoo App

    Download Chrome and use the web browser to use yahoo instead of the app....by nature, the app has too many limitations. I commented on this on a baseball board, check my msg history and read that for more details.

    why do my posts get deleted

    by Tom Jul 23, 2016 8:05 PM
    T J Ritter T J Ritter Jul 24, 2016 12:49 PM Flag

    Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, black highlights, click on TERMS. Included you will find among others that its a TOS violation to 1) post ANY e-mail address 2) post ANY web links. Yahoo uses bots to filter and delete any message that violates this....there was a brief period during the most recent update that disabled that ability until the updates were complete...but as you see its working now. They also added about two years (maybe three) that these message boards were not to be used for "recruiting" but....that's also done anyway. As far as e-mails you can "code" it by your emailaddyatyachoodotcom.....and it should fly, but I would suggest against it for your security protection.

    Drop my team

    If the draft has occurred, the ONLY way you can be removed is if....IF the commissioner transfers your team to another manager. If the league is NOT finalized yet, you can DELETE your team from the main page by clicking on Edit Teams and selecting the team you want deleted. If the league IS finalized, again you cannot be removed unless the commish transfers your team.

    ...you will get the results of the REGULAR game if he plays, you won't get the resumed-suspended game.....you cannot get credit for performance by a player attained prior to when you acquired him.

    Rollback the mobile app?

    T J Ritter T J Ritter Jul 24, 2016 8:26 AM Flag

    1) Well, no....they don't ! Outsourcing is basically turning over management to "another team", you are just "licensing" the name.....doesn't matter tho, as of Monday, they are sold to Verizon in a $5B deal.
    2) Follow me here....if you download Chrome on your phone,then use Chrome to access Y! Fantasy sports....the SAME functionality exists on THAT browser as it does on a PC with a FEW limitations.....my POINT is that this way allows you MORE functionality then using the app.
    3) MANY people...including those who comment on the App board.....expect the SAME exact functionality on an app as the web experience on a PC......and sadly this is impossible given the current infrastructure and hardware limitations of phones and tablets. At least for now. Once phones/tabs can utilize MORE RAM or the sw of phones can "cache" unused storage space as a page file and treat it like RAM as Windows does, then perhaps we'll see the end of PC's and the era of everything on mobile devices.....till then....

    Use the transfer team option in Commissioner tools to assign a team to another manager.

    @LOTB-Well you should realize like many OTHER companies, Yahoo outsources their web services. They do no developing on the apps. Very little is kept in-house. Prospective/pending sales have a tendency to do that. Less reorganization when the assets are sold-anyway. The mobile app is NEVER going to contain the same functionality as what can be done on a computer...memory resources,programming,web compatibility...too many factors involved. So my suggestion is use the web-based browser on your phone/tablet...or learn that apps cannot do what a PC can and let well enough alone.

    Yeah, ummm, how do i say this......you cannot link the web to something STORED on your computer (the C: a dead giveaway)...you have to actually store the image on a server, give it a web address,THEN link to it through WWW....if the link is based on an email, rt click on that image to see if it was assigned one when the image was attached.

    It's theirs, they can make changes.......or not ....as long and as often as they want to......because they can!

  • T J Ritter T J Ritter Jul 19, 2016 11:06 PM Flag

    The correct reference is......whatever your league/commissioner deem as the rule(s) in this case.
    You can award keepers in LATER rounds of the draft.....you can set keepers as the FIRST three picks....which means not choosing from the pool till rd 6....this again should be determined or decided by the league WAY before you got to this point....I mean you have to be in your second season at least to allow keepers so SOMEWHERE this was decided/determined ahead of time.

  • T J Ritter T J Ritter Jul 18, 2016 3:05 PM Flag

    Bob, the POINT of having an adjustable setting for transactions is for individual leagues to set as they see fit. You begin to have problems if you allow a commish to change rules week-to-week. It is my opinion and observation that integrity is better preserved when the settings are decided upon by a league, then left alone once that leagues draft is held. While there are exceptions to this...I don't think a short-week or combined week warrants a change......again, my personal opinion.
