Yahoo's "Trading Block"

Postby echizen » Thu Apr 12, 2007 6:46 pm

Does your league even use this?

Yahoo! introduced it last year, but its was pretty empty last year. this year looks no different in my league.

If you guys do use it, do you think i should remind my league?

I try to use it, and reminded my league through a message board post that it was there. It may or not promote activity of your league, but it can't hurt.

Until yahoo puts it on the league page it is a wasted tool. You could try and use it but it will be "out of sight, out of mind".

i use it. some in my league use it, but i wish everyone would use it.
last year i would usually make a post maybe every month or so trying to remind everyone that its there and exactly how to find it.
i think its very useful. you can see who other guys have available and what they would like in return.

I'm the only one who's using it so far this year. Most of the people in my league don't seem to like trades, though. Jerks.

I like the idea of it, and I use it in most of my leagues, but it is just in a wasted spot. If they put it on the league page, I think it would be much more useful.

I'd probably use it if it was on the front page but everyone on my team is tradeable and if I want someone from another team I will go after them. I don't need a trading block to tell me otherwise.

I used it last year, but hardly ever updated it.

I usually have access to people's IM's or have some way of contacting them like that. I'd rather do it that way.
