I play in a homer league where I can only have players on my team that have played for my team in the past or present and I easily max out the 50 player allotment... This doesn't sound like it would be a difficult change (assuming that it is a constant that can be modified)...

Any chance?

TIA


So I take it this won't be address AGAIN, even though it is probably a quick change to the code (especially if it is a constant)...

If I were Genie I'd make it so that this was implemented in every league except any one you sign up for ever again. Unthankful pain in the rear. :-t

Statements like this ^ never cease to piss me off.

Please stop assuming you know what is involved in changing the implementation of a feature, when you know nothing about the internals of the current implementation, nor do you know the all the factors that determine decisions about the implementation.

Make the request politely, make a case for the request, and thank the provider for providing a pretty freakin' good implementation of a free service.


I have asked it politely for at least three years and many times in this thread, but never even got one comment from anyone...

Of course I don't know the factors involved, but at least it got someone's attention this time, though not from the game developers...

Nor are you really entitled to one. The difference between Y! and the other fantasy providers is that we actually have one here who does provide some insight and ask our opinions, and implement some change. Hell I don't even play Y! anymore, for several years now, but still, I've never seen any employee of any provider I've ever played on be as open, honest, cooperative, concerned, and caring of this community (or any community's) opinion or thoughts on their game. He's not Tech Support.

All I was wanting was an acknowledgement that it was seen... Spending a couple of seconds to say that the proper people see something would be better than people feeling like they need to bump something so it doesn't get lost...

A simple reply in the past and we would not be having this conversation...

I would also like to see the number of players allowed on a watch list to be increased. I find myself once or twice a week editing my watch list to take some players off in order to add other players.

I'd like to be able to go back and have the option for classic roster editing again. Instead of the drag and drop. It's been real buggy for me this year, where it will act like my roster is locked even tho it isn't and i have to refresh the page like 5 times to get it to behave properly.

You already have this option... right under the submit button at the bottom of your lineup is the option to switch between classic and drag and drop.

I know this was mentioned before, but it would be cool to be able to look for players just on the DL or listed as NA...
