Just started doing online fantasy baseball last year. Overall i think you guys do a good job. One suggestion I would have is in both snake drafts and auction drafts, at the end of each hour to build in a 5 or 6 minute break. The prospects of trying to last several hours without a restroom break, or worse, rushing to take a leak while it's going on is something that would be a big improvement. They used to do it on those online poker sites because some of those tournaments lasted a long time.

Commissioners in private leagues can pause and start auctions at will, so they have the technology to do it.

If you mean the recent problem with message board in the fantasy games, that should be fixed now. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

It's still messed up. I hit reply, and nothing happens. This is confirmed by others as well in multiple leagues.

Yahoo, get your act together.

Guy or Floppy,

Any solution to this? I have too many teams with them combined. Is there a setting somewhere for baseball only?

Couple of questions:

Where are the 24/7 draft time options that were promised before Yahoo even opened?
8:45 as the latest available time on west coast is no bueno.


For Yahoo Pro Leagues:
$20 and $50 H2H leagues have available drafts every day.
$50 Roto leagues have available drafts every day.
$100 Roto leagues are available to draft every day.
So why do $20 roto leagues only have weekend dates available? Seems like the $20 Rotos would be one of the most popular.

Also have any of $250 leagues filled? I only see 1 draft day for this month.

It would be very nice to be able to see how man teams are currently registered for each draft.
It would be even better to have a large clickable calender that shows ALL draft types/times/buyin levels in one place, so we can easily choose when and what we want. And set it up so that when your cursor hovers over the draft typed for any particular day, a popup shows how many teams are reg'd for that particular draft.
Right now finding one that fits my schedule is a huge pain, because Im willing to play multiple levels/league style/draft types, but I cannot see all the draft times/dates at once.

As we get closer to opening day will there be more than 1 draft time open every day for each league type?

They are coming soon. Well before the heart of draft season. 24/7 Mock drafts are here already, btw.

Pro League draft slots are allocated based on projected demand. If the $20 roto leagues show that they can support more draft times, we'll offer them.

I'll pass this along.

There are always more draft options for winner leagues & pro leagues when demand is higher. That has historically been true and will continue to be true.

If you aren't get the popup editor for composing your message, that sounds like a browser issue. Does that happen to you in a different browser? The problem I was referring to (the one that was fixed) was that sending a message sometimes gave an error.
