This has been addressed and answered by Genie on at least one occasion, maybe in this very thread. Long story short it doesn't appear to be changing.

Of course not, that would mean that they would be doing something that the users would like...

Instead they put a gun to your head and force you to use their free service, without providing any outlet at all for there to be two-way communication between our very exclusive sect of enthusiasts here at this site and the company itself, unlike all of the other fantasy providers who are basically banging down the door at the Cafe dying to hear what we would like to have included in our game, inviting us to their headquarters to express our views in person... Oh... wait...

But please, do go on. Watching people ignorantly spout nonsense is a favorite past time of mine.

LOL @ nonsense...

I love the Yahoo game, but there have been many suggestions to make it better that have been made by many users, but alas at times the developers make decisions like they work at Facebook...

There are things to complain about with Yahoo (just like every service; you can't please everybody) but being on the ball with user requests is mos def not one of them.

Even though the original post mentions "wish lists" and features that we wish they had but don't?

Fantasy Sports Genie wrote:Hey... so as we start to get ready to work on our 2013 baseball game, I figured I'd at least ask: what is on the top of your wish lists for this season? Are there still features you really wish we (Yahoo!) had that we don't? Bugs that really drive you crazy? Pages you wish were different/better/faster?

Having a wish list is fine. Saying this:

is ridiculous. They go above and beyond to do things that the users would like, even things that only pertain to niche users that might comprise 0.1% of their traffic. As was just mentioned, they also sent open invitations to Cafe members to come for lunch and discuss their service at headquarters.

Also, Fantasy Sports Genie has taken time out to listen to our suggestions. He made an entire thread dedicated to it, and has put a great deal of time listening and responding to our posts regarding Yahoo fantasy baseball. There's 55 pages to this thread, you know how many times Genie has responded to a question or suggestion that someone has made? I guarantee you a lot, and he has taken the time to listen, which is more than enough in my book. Genie wants to improve Yahoo fantasy baseball, and is willing to listen to a countless number of suggestions.

Genie did not have to do all of this. But he wants to improve fantasy baseball at Yahoo, which shows how much he cares about the success of Yahoo fantasy, and how much he cares about the people who use Yahoo as their fantasy baseball site.

For that, Fantasy Sports Genie, I would like to thank you for the time you have put in. It is quite obvious how much you would like to improve Yahoo fantasy baseball. Always wanting to improve something is key to success, and I thank you for making this thread and taking our suggestions, and sometimes even dealing with nasty responses. I really appreciate and respect the time you have put into this.

Really?
how many times are you going to bring this up?
Genie has addressed this exact topic many many times. In fact you have been in the middle of most (or all) of those conversations, so its obvious that you already know how this situation stands.
Please stop.
