I complained...

Postby smoke_screen_03 » Wed Apr 06, 2005 5:25 pm

Thanks for this link: http://add.yahoo.com/fast/help/baseball/cgi_feedback

I said thanks for trying, but there are major problems:

1) Can't read the pitching stats in my 9x9 league

2) Can't maximize mindow

3) Takes forever to load

4) Doesn't show the count for pitchers/hitters and doesn't show the h/ab column

5) It doesn't highlight active hitters/pitchers

6) The column on the the left showing active games is way too big; the thinkg people care about is active players' stats.


Thanks for the link, I also encourage others to send congenial complaints, or else they will have no idea how brutal it is.

I also don't like how it doesnt tell you if the players is 1/2, 1/3, or 1/4 and so on. It tells you the AVG, but I like to know how many ABs he has had and so on.

exactly


I second this exactly, I miss the old stat tracker! :~(

Ugh, this is so bulky and hard to read, I'm not even using it for the free two weeks.

I'm thrilled I didn't plop down the money I've put down every year.

Remind me to send a case of New Coke to the people over at Stattracker, inc.

It's a shame. It has some nice things, including a gamechannel, and its real purty and all. I was planning on buying since I liked it before, but not the way it is now.

They must have a real bunch of, uh, yahoos in the development team. They cant be Fantasy players, they obviously never used this, and there were certainely no acceptance and usability tests. Unless these are the usability tests. If so then there's some hope that they will make some changes. Shouldnt take rocket science to be able to see the stats in a StatTracker.

My main gripe is the amount of time it takes to load, and also the lack of an A/B, the box score for it isn't nearly as good as MLB Gameday, and lack of IP. Unless they fix all this, I'll save my money and use Gameday.

To add to the list of complaints,

This stattracker is a real memory hog compared to the old one, especially if you have more than one open at a time.

It slows down Firefox alot :-t

Yes, it definitely does. With the ST window open, Firefox takes up 73,032 K of memory. When you close the window, it's down to less than half that. My God, is that really necessary? Bad, bad decision Yahoo. I guess I can't complain, since it's free, but I'm certainly not going to pay $10 for a terrible piece of programming like that. I might as well keep track of the scores by hand!
