Chat/Message Board - General feedback or feature requests
General feedback and feature requests for league chat and message boards.
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.
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.
jarrod scherle commented
If Yahoo doesn't bring back GIFS and images, I'm taking my league to ESPN next year. Such a disappointment, Yahoo.
Reaganomics Lamborghini commented
a bit part of the fun is trolling your friends with amusing internet images don't blow this yahoo!
Alia Murphy commented
Agree - it literally takes 80% of the fun out of it for my league. Unacceptable.
Joe Panzica commented
Please add the ability to post pics and gifs back onto this message board as this makes NO SENSE!
Bradford Crouch commented
The inability to post GIFs or images on the message board this year will force me to move my league to ESPN unless it is urgently addressed.
Andrew Potter commented
We have been using Yahoo FF for seventeen years. This year Smack Talk was taken away and made a negative impact on the participation of the teams on the chat board...We are considering changing to different league site
Louis Gallant commented
posting a link is OK but most people don't want to be redirected to another site ...
