Yahoo lineup malfunction?

Postby mayor quimby » Tue Apr 01, 2014 11:09 am

I've made changes to my lineup twice now, prior to any games being started. The changes have been taking effect the day after each transaction.

Yesterday I swapped out Nate Jones for Matt Lindstrom before the game started. Today I have added Jonathan Villar due to Reyes landing on the DL. Lindstrom was not added to my roster until this morning and Villar is still not on there right now, even though it says I added him on the home page, the SS slot is blank on my team.

Anyone else experiencing this? Is there a new default setting that I'm missing?

In my experience, transactions like this always occur the following day. It's been like that for years on Yahoo. Not sure whether you can change it to same-day transactions in the Commissioner Settings.

What do you mean by "transactions like this"? I've been using Yahoo for years. When you make a free agent transaction, it has always been that your lineup reflects this change instantaneously.

Another weird thing: when I go to propose a trade, Jonathan Villar appears as being on my team, but otherwise, on my regular team roster page, the SS slot is still just blank...

What the hell?? I have to have my SS slot unoccupied for tonight? And I don't get credit for Lindstrom's save from last night?

WTF?!?

Sorry, Ramble, I appreciate the input, I'm just PO'ed about this...

look at your league settings. See if they are set for "daily -today" or something else.

This is what I'm thinking as well...it's funny how I don't remember off hand for 100% and I've played on Yahoo for a decade or more....but I'm pretty sure this is how it's always been. The only roster changes you can do same day are players already on your team...bench to start lineup/rotation or whatever. FA pickups or WW pickups take place the following day they get picked up. You've never been able to pickup a pitcher to start for you that same day...you pick him up a day early to start for you tomorrow.

There is a setting for "daily - today" in private leagues. You can pick up a player and immediately put him in your lineup if their game has not started.

It's been a number of years since I played Yahoo!, but this has to be a relatively new feature. I remember Genie explaining a year or two ago how Yahoo! specifically did not offer the ability to Add a player from FA and insert him into your roster on the same day. Again, it's possible that Y! has since changed their game. In all the years I played there, though, it was never an option.

I just found the setting...

Maximum player acquisitions per week:
Minimum innings pitched per team per week:
Allow roster changes: Daily - Tomorrow
Start League scoring in: Week 1 (Mar 22)
Playoff Weeks:
Note: Week 25 runs 7 days from Sep 22 to Sep 28
Playoff Reseeding: Details

Submit Cancel

Here's what my league is set to, but it doesn't have a drop-down menu that has other options. Can anybody help me here? I want to go back to the way it has always been.

You can't change it once the season starts. Maybe, if you contact yahoo customer care, they could help.
