Yahoo - where is the classic stattracker?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Ender » Sun Apr 02, 2006 10:13 am

Every single person in our league likes it, the majority of people like it. Just like with everything else on the internet, you almost never see positive feedback on something, only the negative feedback. If someone is happy wtih something they really have no reason to bother posting about it.

I guess I still fail to see whats wrong with it, its mostly the same as the old one but with more added features and just a slightly different interface. The only response I was able to get last year was it ran slow on some peoples PC's which I guess is valid.

The new Stattracker was fine for me last year. Don't see why it wouldn't be good again this year, but I haven't opened it yet. :-o

Because when you make a drastaic change when everything was fine for 5 years, people will complain.

The new one is still crappy. The colors hurt my eyes and it will take some time to get used to. But since they got rid of the classic one, we don't really have much of a choice now.

Different strokes is all. Everyone in our league hated it last season.

Just put /loadstattracker?classic=1 behind the URL of your league's main page ;-D


Do you think this will last all year long? Without having to pay for it?

To all who don't know what is wrong with the new stattracker: PLEASE READ MY THIRD POST IN THIS THREAD!

And I forgot to mention that the flash crap uses much more of the CPU and is very often SLOW! Sometimes I need to wait a few seconds after I click on another matchup... It never happens in the good old stattracker - it works fine and quickly!

Besides, the flash crap is unstable.

In the future, if you want someone like Yahoo to take you seriously, you might want to consult a thesaurus instead of using words like crap.

Add me to the list of people that prefer the old version to the new.

the new version sucks. not being able to resize the columns and having to scroll totally ruins it.

Probably just get the first week free... same as with the new ST.

My whole league is in the same boat of hating the new ST. Maybe if I had some crazy dual-core processor with and insane video card my computer could keep up and I'd like the new one better. Until that time, I'll be sticking with the retro ST.

I still had the link from going through this process last year before Yahoo! linked to "Classic StatTracker." I bet they'll do it again this year... the classic is just too hard to get rid of.

Not even a dual-core processor would help you with missing real-time at-bats or with the everlasting need to scroll here, there and everywhere.
