Damn straight...



We would prefer to have the Genie here and although he doesn't always respond to our questions or have answers that we like we want him around none the less. 3 yellow cards and you're gone.


All I was asking for was an acknowledgement that he saw the request... A simple reply to say that it was seen by people that do the work... He didn't even have the decency to take five seconds to do that...

And for the "yellow cards"... Oh no, what shall I do...

when you use b or i in brackets like [ ] that is html right? would that work in yahoo fantasy baseball where you edit your "smack" or whatever it's called now, under your team name? where you put your mouse and it says "click here to edit". if I was to pit [ i ] whatever [ /i ] would that be in italics? or would you just see the [ i ] ? I don't want to try it, have it not work, and have everyone in the league see it and thinking I'm a tool.

No. Those square brackets are used for BBCode typically used on message boards, like these.

QUESTION:

When we look at our team each night we see the Starting Lineup Total across the bottom. Cool.

But when we want to see out total team performance over the last 7, 14 or 30 days we get the stats but not a Team Total like we do each night.

Why not?

This is a question for anyone that can help.

When accepting a trade, is there a confirmation page to make sure that the owner really did intend to accept?
I cant remember off the top of my head but I'm thinking maybe not?

Big fiasco in a league where one of the owners claims he accidentally clicked accept when he had no intention to do so.

when you click "accept" there is another small box that pops up on the screen that says something like about whether you want to accept and you have to click something on that box as well.

There's a confirmation pop-up.

But if the guy immediately said it was an accident, I'd have no issue with the commish over-turning the trade. He has nothing to gain from doing this, I guess other than having another owner say "hey I'll give you a better deal if you cancel this one" but that would be pretty obvious after the fact. I guess it depends on how much discretion the commish is given to use his judgment. In one league of mine on ESPN, on more than one occasion, an accidental bid of something like $211 instead of $21 was placed during the initial auction, and obviously it was reversed so the entire season wasn't screwed up because of an honest mistake.

THanks Skin. Appreciate the help.
Turns out the 2 owners worked it out and reversed the trade on their own.

Also, I had a chance to browse through this thread, and wow! What an awesome resource!
Awesome that an actual Yahoo employee takes the time to respond to requests, and it looks like even implements some of the suggestions into the game. Really cool.
