If I had an opinion, it would be that every player on the 40 man roster would be in the yahoo data base. That would be perfect, imo. However we here at the cafe have no voice in how things are done. We enjoy having "Fantasy Sports Genie" here so we should stop lashing out at him for yahoos problems. Yahoo will always add players at weird times. All we can do is keep checking the "whos been added' list in yahoo leagues or keep a close eye on the cafe leftovers.
I had said I was bowing out, but I do feel like I need to say a few things in response to this one. I'm like that sometimes
1) Thanks for your support. I'm glad you enjoy our service, and hope we only manage to make you enjoy it more going forward.
2) To say that the Cafe has no voice in how things are done is very much not true; that is largely why I spend time here. There have been quite a few changes made to the various games in the last year based on feedback from the Cafe. The catch is that the Cafe doesn't have the *only* voice, and further the Cafe sometimes does not have a single unified voice. Like on this issue. So we listen, we do our best, and as time allows, we make things better. And we value the input we get from this community, as one very interesting voice among our broad customer base.
3) I'd like to think we don't "always add players at weird times", and that will also only improve going forward. People constantly say, "but you added Lincecum in the last preseason omg!" Okay, we did. But continuing to point that out when I'm trying to make it clear that we've changed our position doesn't really help either of us. Some part of the decision process is subjective, so there will occasionally be a player that some people are surprised by (and others are ecstatic about). But our goal at this point is to make it predictable until we can make it configurable.
