Get rid of whatever yahoo was trying to do with the player chats and go back to what it was before. This is typical yahoo, changing and making features worse that no one even complained about in the first place.

Player chats was something I looked forward too when I opened the app. One of the only reasons our league is still using yahoo. The player chat feature had a nice interface and not a single person complained. The new interface is so depressing and ugly. All of my old comments are gone, and when I click on my account, it brings me to a third party website. So disappointing.

Why a change in the middle of the season to the Player in Public leagues was done without even a chance to respond with player input? It now takes me 5 times more time to set up my fantasy team on a daily basis

Windows 98 thinks the new format looks very hip and fresh.
You can’t even click your older posts and see the reactions to it anymore. 10% of the time if you click an old post, it’ll take you directly to it… the other 90% of the time it just takes you to the very top of that players chat. Lame.
Also I’m unable to click anything on my profile other than adding a few words about myself? I can’t change my profile photo/avatar anymore?
Epic fail guys - go back, it’s commendable when one can admit they got it wrong and you got it wrong here in a bad bad way. Not one person has said anything positive about the changes and trust me, there is a TON of feedback.
Let’s try again.

Absolutely terrible system I have a comments from a day ago still waiting to get “approved” even though one of the comments literally just says “him” I’ve also had comments rejected such as saying “source?”… Absolutely terrible system

Whole chat is super depressing to look at now. What was there wasn’t broken so I don’t get why you had to “fix” it..
We all just want gifs back, nothing more, nothing less. This gross grey definitely keeps me from wanting to use the function at all

Whoever designed and approved the new UI for player discussions should be terminated, immediately.

It sucks, please change it back

The new player chat is not that great, it would be great if the font size could be adjusted to fit more on the screen. Everything feels zoomed in. Also why are random posts waiting for approval? These posts aren’t rude or anything bad. New chat is just a bad product that was clearly not user tested.

The new chat UI is a significant downgrade from the previous chat. How did this get approved? It is universally disliked across all my leagues, social media, and within the chats themselves. Seems like some contractors created it just to have some busy work. Complete failure on all accounts.

New chat sucks. Feels clunky and disorganized. The UI needs a heavy retool. It doesnt match the rest of the app. Please revert back to the old chat!

Need the ability to change font and spacing in the Hockey player discussions. I prefer a condensed format and the size is TOO BIG
The previous UI and aesthetic perfectly matched the app UI and were clean and easy to read. This new UI out of place and is more suited for the AOL comment section than a fantasy chat! Please kindly fix!

I just want to echo 100% what has previously been stated. Nobody likes it, and it didn't even need an overhaul in the first place. And as a league commish, it's annoying having to hear complaints about this lol.
I'll just add that nobody needs to know who's currently online. Scrap that green dot please.

I really liked the denser layout of the old chat - with the new layout it feels like the space isn't being utilized as well as it could be. If the space between messages could be reduced and the font made a little smaller I'd like the changes a lot more. To fit more messages on the page, maybe the text of the message could be put where the "<number>d ago" information is, and that time information could be put beside the poster's name?
Probably an unrelated bug, but I notice as well that looking at the chat doesn't clear the "999+" unread messages indicator from the player card.

Feel like I'm reading the comment section of my local newspaper. The old chat matched the UI of the entire app so much better. This feels like a massive step backwards

Nobody likes it, looks clunky and old. The old chat was perfect. P.S I’m speaking for 99% of Yahoo fantasy users.
