CBS Ruined their Fantasy Baseball Site Today

Postby EWeaver » Wed Mar 27, 2013 2:08 pm

Who's with me?

WHY get rid of the message board?

WHY implement one of the most cumbersome, flawed designs of any website EVER? It's so, so, so, horrible. I'm literally not overreacting.

Do any other leagues allow you to track not only contract dollars, but also years? Our leagues would like to switch but we can't find anybody else who tracks $ + Years for contracts (and we don't want to do it all manually).

First year using CBS and I already thought the interface was awful and clunky. Crazy to say it just got worse.

I've been using CBS for 12+ years. I like the new layout. We use the message board a lot & all of the feedback in my league has been positive so far.

If someone knows how to delete a 'From the Commissioner' message on the 'Fantasy Feed' page I would love to hear how.

The layout looks brighter and, nerdy enough, I like the chance to change the league title image. Not so sure about the Tumblr-like player news, and having user created articles and message board posts was great to have front and center. Going to see if I can fiddle with what can be viewed on the front page, otherwise that would be a pity if those aspects got backburnered. I guess they figured that the lineup page looked fine as that hasn't changed at all.

My H2H League is running amok as I write. Not liking the changes as of yet.

Are part of the changes aimed at smartphone/tablet users? I haven't checked it on my 7" tablet but it seems that new format would be easier on a touchscreen.

Has anyone figured out how to rearrange the layout? I like the standings to be front and center. Not some crappy inane league banner.

I'm not a fan of the new setup...

I haven't dug real deep, but I can say for sure that I don't like them.
