Yahoo Trade Functionality Question

Postby heyeaglefn » Tue Apr 13, 2010 2:38 pm

I am sorry if this is not the right area or has been posted before, but I did not see it in any of my searches.

A trade has been accepted in my league at 2:13 AM EST this morning, and our review period is set to 1 day, so when would this trade go through Yahoo?

Does Yahoo use Pacific time for this, meaning it was still yesterday at 11:13 pm PST when this trade was accepted, so it will be official at Midnight Pacific Time tonight, or will it take longer than that?

It should say something like 'this will be reflected on your roster on [such and such a date]' if that helps.
[reg season/playoffs]
LFoD '08 [1st/3rd], '10 [1st/3rd], '11 [1st/2nd], '12 [1st/1st]
123Innings '08 [1st/1st], '09 [1st/3rd], '10 [1st/4th], '12 [4th/2nd]
BRAL '09 2nd, '10 1st
Cool 3.0 '08 1st

Yahoo with one day veto period:

Trade accepted on Tuesday.
League can veto through Wednesday (the one day veto period).
Yahoo processes the trade on Thursday.
Traded players are officially listed on the rosters on Friday.

Its crazy how long it takes yahoo to process a trade. Espn is much more efficient. in your example you accepted the trade at 2:14 am this morning...the trade would be official and players swapped by 2:14 am tomorrow...a true 24 hour veto period.

The Yahoo system processes all trades and waivers overnight.

Agreed, this is one thing that has always bothered me. Nothing like trying to swing a trade to fill a spot left empty by a DL-stint, and losing 4 days worth of stats because of the annoying long time it takes to process trades in Yahoo. The only option is to drop somebody and pick up a replacement, or just wait a few days for a trade to go through.
