That's been there for about 3 years heh... but I am glad you like it :-)

Has anyone chimed in on the glitch where you copy and paste something to the Yahoo fantasy baseball message board and it comes out formatted all screwy with double spacing?

I know, it's atrocious, isn't it? One of my leagues does a slow 2 round FA draft on the yahoo boards every year, and it's honestly my least favorite thing about fantasy baseball. "Clunky interface" isn't even in it.

Okay. So sometimes it is fun to just wait and see when you guys discover things, and how you respond, but in this case I'll proactively ask...

Yesterday we pushed out our replacement for the custom logo upload tool. We're hoping this one will last and be much more stable than what you've had for the last few years. Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or feedback.

I have a question on behalf of Yahoo Commish who is running a keeper league.

One manager did not return, and he deleted the team BEFORE finding a replacement manager. Now he found the replacement manager but the "choose your own keepers" function is, of course, not available to the new manager.

Through the history we know what the roster was last year, but how does the Commish assign the keepers?

Based on my experience I thought the commish can manually assign them before the draft?

Is this corrct?

It's definitely more stable. The old tool was very frustrating. ;-D
My only negative is that unless I'm missing something it appears I can't have multiple logos across multiple leagues and sports. I have to stick with one. But that's no biggie really. It's just a logo. :-)
So overall, a very nice improvement!
Thanks Genie ;-D

My workaround for copying and pasting: I switch to "Use Classic Editor" before pasting. After I paste I then switch back to "Use Rich Text Editor" to make any formatting changes.

You totally can. For every one of your teams, when you go to Edit Team Settings, you get to choose your logo. It can be one of the stock images. It can use Gravatar. It can use a logo you previously uploaded via the new custom tool. It can use a new logo you upload via the new custom tool.

In case we have a usability issue: what confused you into thinking you couldn't have multiple logos across leagues/sports? Did you try to do something you thought should work but it didn't? Ohhh... unless you're talking about Gravatar and not the thing we launched yesterday? Even for Gravatar you *can*, but it is more unwieldy. Lemme know...
