Update: we've now fully identified the cause of the problem. We also identified how it snuck past the check we had in place to prevent this very thing from happening

We've tested our update and believed it to be sound, but just thought of a reeeeally subtle flaw that we want to correct before we run it. To let you know the kind of details that give us a headache, if we hadn't caught this subtle problem, it might have allowed pitcher stats to count for yesterday for players that switched leagues in leagues that are AL or NL only where the player should no longer be allowed to accumulate stats. Sigh. So that is being covered, and updates will start shortly.

Just a minor glitch but...lately (past week or so) when I sign in to yahoo and hover over the red Fantasy button, 50% of the time it works correctly and displays all my fantasy leagues/teams. About 25% of the time it doesn't(it just shows a drop down menu without personalized leagues/teams) unless I click on Fantasy and go to that page then it shows them. The remaining 25% of the time it inexplicably shows some other person's leagues/teams(a different person's each time) and if I click on one of them I get the "you do not belong to this league" message.

Like I said, if I click on Fantasy then I get the proper listings. Just a strange quirk...I use the most updated version of Firefox mostly, but I think I have seen this happen to my wife when she uses Chrome also. It has happened on both my desktop with Vista and laptop with Windows 8. Not really a problem but just a repeatedly strange glitch...I don't know if anybody else has had this happen?

Well that isn't very good. Question: when it is wrong, are you on fantasysports.yahoo.com or sports.yahoo.com? Both have a fantasy dropdown menu.

I have "sports.yahoo.com" bookmarked and I use that to bring the site up. I use a Norton Security Toolbar to store all my passwords, but I don't think that matters at all. The glitch does NOT give me access to anybody else's teams or pages or settings or anything, just shows their listing of fantasy teams. It's just an odd thing when it happens. Once it came up with a team or league called the White Mambas and I clicked on it and got a page that said "you are not a member of this league". It's strange, but not harmful and doesn't happen everyday so I haven't brought it up sooner. Also it does ALWAYS correct itself if I REFRESH page or click on the red FANTASY button.

My Yahoo! sign-in name is Dennismenis321 if that helps at all.

this isn't for fantasy, but for the yahoo player profile for Anthony Rendon.
it has.. Draft: 2008 - 27th round by the Atlanta Braves.
he was drafted then, but went to college instead. he was then drafted 6th overall in 2011 draft.

That is helpful information, thanks. I'll follow up and see what I can find.
