Chat/Message Board - General feedback or feature requests
General feedback and feature requests for league chat and message boards.
Nicholas Wyss commented
Image sharing/file sharing in the Android app is not implemented properly. Most apps allow you to browse files. Fantasy does not, it seems to only look in the camera app and in unedited screenshots, and then offers those limited files only in reverse chronological order.
If you're not going to allow manual file browsing, at least have the app look in more folders than just camera and unedited screenshots.
If you edit/crop a screenshot, the image is not offered. If you download an image from twitter, web browser, other app, not offered. Every messenger app I've ever used has this functionality except for yahoo. Please fix.
Max Bickel commented
Can't even post images. Let alone a file if you want to share something to the league like a spreadsheet. How is this a thing in the year 2022?
yahoo mess. board is the worst I've ever seen. What is this? 1997?
Seamus Carr commented
Time for an update for team logos! The current helmet color schemes are great but it's time for additions! Maybe the ability to customize color combos (backgrounds-to-helmet).
Rest of the platform is great!

Include an option on individual FF league sites for commissioner to post a weekly "article", to include ability to insert GIFs, web links, etc. The league message board is simply not the same thing. Our previous league host (My Fantasy League) offered this and those articles were the league's foundation and glue. It kept owners interested and invested.
Travis Perry commented
Add a feature that allows the commissioner to write a weekly article for the league with ability to add photos, gifs, etc. It's the glue that holds our league together.
Yahoo is superior to our old league host except for this feature -- the Yahoo message board sucks.
Matteo Gpro commented
Allow deleting of very old messages in the inbox for both Android and iPhone
Randy Allan commented
Anyone else have an issue with the ratings calculations this week? Last week I was 903. I won all three of my games. My new rating is 907 (+11) ????? Bad math.
Bert Brooks commented
Bring back the Smack Talk function/capability during weekly fantasy matchups for leagues to enhance the fun of the competition.
Pete Richard commented
Yahoo took away this option 3-4 years ago... Please bring it back for all commishes in all leagues.
Players post threads that become irrelevant, threads that are spam for other leagues and basically clutter up the board
WHY WAS THIS OPTION EVEN REMOVED????
Cliff Fernandez commented
I hope you mean the chat feature and not the message board. GIFs in the app's chat from your device is not supported and it's simply one of the worst decisions the product team has made. The provided GIF search is like rated PG bc obviously no adults use your app. Know your audience or lose your audience. It's as simple as that.
James Johnson commented
Please allow Commissioner to delete posts on message board. Some folks are unruly and post messages that are uneeded or unwanted. It would be great to delete that
Roger F commented
Please let us delete league message board posts from previous years on the app.
Same here. Had a league move away from yahoo because the league message board is so bad. Need to make it more prominent, make it easier to add links, add the ability to easily add gifs.
patrick hill commented
Same. My league has a weekly "Team Name Power Rankings" article that the commish writes. It's hilarious and he can't post pics there anymore so he didn't do it at all last year. Sort of a bummer. Espn let's you do it though?

I voted on a similar post, but this is lumped in, where the Boards need work on a technical level and an interface overhaul. Whether I'm on my phone or my work or home PC, I always need to resort to Basic Message Posting on my Message Boards. If you review my history, I began a newsletter this way, and at first attempted to stylize it with text of different sizes, fonts, and of course bold/italics/underlines. I no longer can successfully add pictures, links, animated gifs, and even stylized text is super difficult because nothing takes hold and I get frustrated and end up going back to Plain Text. It reflects on my efforts as a Commissioner. Is it me? My devices? My league? I've resorted to changing the format altogether and have started a PodCast, but I would return to writing if I could do it effectively. Last season, I broke 10,000 words altogether.

Wah wah wah...you expect them to change it just for you and your idle threat? Move to another platform then. Save your childish taunts for someone who gives a rat's *** junior.
Edward McCarthy commented
Agree the message board sucks. And the message board and the smack talk should have the same functionality. And they should both be accessible on any device. Chatter on the app can't be seen or replied on a PC. This makes no sense and destroys any leagues banter/communication/smack-talk. The social aspect of Yahoo Fantasy sucks.

Came here for this. It's 2017 and I can't taunt via gif. Not good.
