i forget, does yahoo double check if you want to make a trade, i.e. if you click 'accept' or 'reject' is that it? or does another screen get brought up?

take the guys word for it, and quit whining about it.

if you rely on people accidently accepting trades,
or try to get a leg up on the competition by that,
you're pretty lame.


It is?? Is it that hard to hit reject instead of accept?? Don't they even give you another warning after you hit that as well??

the Accept button is on the left, right next to it is the Reject, and on the far right is Make Counter Offer.

there is no added pages for verifying the trade, once you click Accept, it's accepted. Same with Reject.

I admit that I did it in my first Yahoo league last year. Dumb mistake. But, it is easier to hit the wrong button than it should be. And, no, there is no extra "Are you certain you didn't accidently hit the wrong button, stupid?" screen

I just saw that now when I rejected an offer. I don't see how it's much of a problem, though. Depending on the variables, I might allow it to be reversed if the complaint was made immediately after the mistake. If he waited, he loses.

yahoo just needs to add an extra page to verify trades.

That's what I've almost done a couple of times. It seems it would behoove them to simply make those buttons images instead of real cgi buttons. Then they could color them green and red and make them check marks or a big ol' X. ;-D

I'm pretty sure you have to confirm your choice TWICE for Yahoo. Screw that guy anyways. Trade should be continued with

Before the season I made the mistake of pressing accept instead. This was on yahoo in a league with friends and without money. I immediately posted after I accepted but the trade was not reversed. By the way in the trade I gave up Crawford for Winn <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> . I eventually traded back for Crawford but my point is that a simple mistaken press of a button can have a very strong effect on one's season. You should respect his word that he accepted it by mistake, some may argue that strict order must be maintained to run a league, but this is what takes the fun and frivolousness out of fantasy baseball.
