The new CBS look

Postby fast dogs » Tue Jan 25, 2011 11:24 pm

Well they released the new product just when they said they would; but its been met with quite the uproar. Everything has been moved, stuff is missing that was there a year ago. Just exactly what is final and what they are still tinkering with we'll have to see. Big changes are hard to adjust to, they insist they are enhancing the leagues, so far no 1 seems impressed. We'll have to see if they've pulled away from the competition or they lose alot of the loyal fan base they've built up

I'm trying to reserve judgment. I definitely like that the columns on my league page are now equally sized so that I can move things around however I want.

It's a little hard to judge because in my (keeper) leagues we have each have a bazillion illegal roster notifications and that's eating up a lot of space. I went to try to figure out who has Frank Francisco today but couldn't find the "Player Search" function.

I too, like that the colums on my league page are equally sized now. Not sure what I think of the changes yet as I'm still muddling my way through everything.

If you click on the players' profile, you'll see which owner has the player your searching for on the right hand side and it will appear as that owner's icon. If the player is a FA, then it will appear as a blank.

If nothing changes We will switch sites.I have fought for years for my yahoo league to go to CBS and now in my opinion and a few others in our league CBS is all jacked up and Yahoo blows it away. No player search, no roster grid thats just a start. I gave up trying to figure it all out. We are a very competative money league so maybe I'm set on my old ways, but I've never been on a site that I couldn't figure hoe to get what I want. Maybe I just gave up to fast. Hopefully they are going to make some big changes still. Why did they mess with it.What was wrong with it.

Roster Grid is on there. Go to your Team Page and it is one of the giant icons above your roster... if I'm remembering right.

Everything is there, you just have to look for it. My one complaint is that some of the new layout is visually inefficient., as in there's a lot of wasted space where information is held, causing the need to scroll up and down the page.
