i remember reading that smack was coming back but am seeing no evidence on the 2018-19 league pages... any information as to what is happening there??
with regard to the messenger feature, we rarely use it... that just feels like a text message somehow, which i can easily do on my cell phone. not the same. what we miss is being able to comment directly on the matchup pages! always seemed to liven things up when it felt like everyone was engaged & paying attention to each other's teams... made for a HUGE difference in involvement
yahoo team- we appreciate the improvements in the stat accumulation dept, but please please consider enhancing that interpersonal aspect! more places in which to communicate... seems easy from a coding standpoint & is so very beneficial to the liveliness of leagues

Yup. Bring back smacktalk.
Also, in the meantime, bring back the ability to add GIFs on the desktop version of Messenger. It's missing somehow.

another comment from our yahoo help community thread:
"Yes, absolutely — bring back the smack! Our league was so much more interactive when teams could communicate via smack...really brought us together and made the league more enjoyable. Like many (most?) leagues, ours is used as a fun way to keep people in touch...the fantasy bball is almost secondary...with a healthy dose of competitiveness and trash talk mixed in. The message board isn’t used nearly as much as the smack feature was.
Yahoo — thanks for considering. We love playing fantasy sports with you guys, and think this small tweak would make the competition much more interactive, fun, and better!
PS: These are normal collars, find a new *****.
