Selecting top 25, top 100 and top 500 is fine, but when selecting ALL it selects the top 25 option.

Still not working.
How long does it take to fix this?

Was anyone else prompted to change their password because of "security issues?" No matter WHAT I put in for the new password it says it's too similar to the old one. I literally laid on my keyboard for random characters and it said it's too similar. So I can't log into my frigging Yahoo account. This is infuriating.

I for one am sad they took away the "Notes" section at the bottom of the team page. I used it often as it can be hard to remember everything when you manage multiple teams.

Hoping for a quick answer here (thanks in advance) ... our draft is tonight..

In Yahoo, as Commish, do I have the ability the modify the number of roster spots after the draft? Use case example is ...

- Goal is to allow owners to bid on 23 Major League players and 2 Minor League players (but not be required to draft Minor League players)
- This means some teams will finish the draft with 23 players, some 24, or some 25 (which is why rosters are set at 25)

Ideally I would like to utilize the new NA slot in Yahoo for Minor Leaguers and not have false open roster slots throughout the season ... so my question is, can I do the following?

1) Implement the NA slot predraft
2) Keep roster sizes at 25 for draft
3) Once draft occurs, move each owner's Minor Leaguers to NA
4) Switch the roster sizes back down to 23

rsjrx What if you run the draft with 25 like it is set...but tell managers they must draft two NA(minor leaguers) in that 25...after draft they can all move those two manually into NA slots. Then you follow draft order and have them one by one post on message board to fill those two roster spots left and you as commish can add them or they can add them manually. You will end up with what you want I think. I little involved, but not too bad. Pretty sure you can fix any mistakes with commissioner tools if they happen.

You cannot do #4. When I worked for Yahoo! and implemented NA slots, I did add limited ability to change your league roster positions postdraft. But one thing you can't do is reduce the maximum roster size post draft, because if you changed it from 25 to 23 when some team has 25 guys (and they aren't in NA slots), then really bad things happen. You can potentially get customer care to help you make the change, because they can ensure that everything is in order before making that last switch. You can add DL/NA slots postdraft, but I doubt that helps your particular situation.

It isn't perfect. My league switched from 26 man rosters this year to 25 man rosters with one NA slot. We're just going to draft 25, and if you draft an NA guy, then postdraft you can move him into your NA slot and have an open spot to add another player as a waiver pickup/free agent. Not perfect, but works for us.
