Keep league open all year
Keep the leagues open all year. Yes, close for 2-3 days for maintenance but otherwise, allow leagues to draft, add players, look at stats, etc for the whole year.
Thanks for all your feedback, James. These are features we will look into adding in the offseason.

This request should be Yahoo's top priority! Allow offseason player trading and draft pick trading, so us Commissioners don't have to manually do it every spring. ( my dynasty league has 20 teams 25 man rosters and about 30 offseason trades every winter)

I have had a dynasty league on Yahoo now for over 10 years, and what lacks the most in Yahoo that is pushing me to other hosts is the offseason. You shut the site down for the offseason so all player trades, and draft pick trades has to be done manually by me every spring. Why not just keep the site up so we can all use it year round.

Agreed 1000 percent. My league has winter meeting votes on rules and rookie applications. Keeping league home page and message board open year round would be extremely nice.

Please allow us to maintain and manage our teams for a full year. Just because the season is over, doesn't mean we don't make offseason trades and your current platform of making commissioners drag and drop keepers, and moving draft picks around using a drop down menu can cause a lot of errors. Allow teams to trade players and draft picks in the offseason. All sports

I agree totally. My dynasty leagues would like to trade and use league messenger all year long.
This would keep my league with Yahoo. I've been with you guys running a 3 sport keeper league for 14 years and entering in all the offseason and preseason trading manually is a huge inconvenience. Not to mention tracking it all particularly with draft pick trading. Almost all the other sites are doing this and my league mates want me to move our league. Help!!!!

Sure would help seeing as i can't make any moves to free up some space (DL,NA) so i can make some moves.
Agreed! Fantrax has this. So should Yahoo. Especially in keeper and dynasty leagues, there is a huge need for this.

Yes this should have happened already. Other sites allow for year round leagues, I am surprised Yahoo doesn’t do it. Please, please allow for this function this year.
