[Chat/Message Boards] Message Board Removal Feedback
Fantasy league message boards are no longer available but you can still access historical message board posts through your fantasy profile. Moving forward, we're investing in Fantasy Chat as the place for league communication and urge you to check out some of the recent improvements we've made like adding threading and pinning with polls coming soon.

Please bring back message boards we post a lot of information there.

I'm pretty upset that the message boards are gone. League Chat is not the same; and it doesn't really make any logical sense as to why the message boards were removed.
Any kind of random post now will get lost in the shuffle of player movement league posts.
Yahoo used to be so simple, and that's why I loved it.
I strongly prefer message boards instead of this new chat

Message boards from every season of our keeper league have disappeared. All of our keeper selections, player costs, draft order, waiver priority, and keeper rules were on our message boards, and now they are gone. There is no way we can continue to operate our league unless the message boards are restored. If this issue is not addressed, we will no longer be playing any fantasy sports on Yahoo. You should stop investing in your new League Chat feature immediately. Your loyal customers do not want this major downgrade. Please do not disable comments in this post. Let our voices be heard.

This is a HORRIBLE idea. Email league function is impossible to find. Removing league chat makes it impossible to talk to league mates about trade collusion. No smack talk. How does your platform get worse every year instead of improving? Last year I use yahoo.

I like the old message boards and have also been asking for poll functionality for quite some time. The chat gets bogged down with irrelevant chit-chat and trash talk and key messages/conversations are lost. We need a forum to sort by topic and discuss important issues like draft dates, keeper settings, rule changes, etc.
Kyle Carlstrom commented
Yahoo removing the message board is completely asinine. We used the message boards for fun and engaging conversations like weekly power rankings and such. And all we get now is a league chat that NOBODY uses. This will probably be the last year our league uses Yahoo Fantasy as it has gotten worse and worse each year.

Bring it back
Toby Glanville commented
We would use the Message Board for tracking draft pick trades. It wasn't critical tho, and we actively use Fantasy Chat daily. It's just cool going back 20 years to see trades and debates that we had.

Worst idea ever. No way to communicate on desktop. Disaster
adam kotarski commented
For years leagues have used the message board to post important messages. Teams could easily go back and find the topic. Now its a chat that one long thread that is basically useless unless people are just using it to chat.
WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?

To not have it is beyond crazy to me. You have to have it. WILD

We used the message board for a weekly "Fantasy Update" newsletter. About half are written by the commissioner, but each manager usually writes at least one per season. Because it is a newsletter it has an issue title (Topic) representing the week and is almost always written in paragraph format with each issue consisting of 3 - 5 paragraphs. As expected in Fantasy Football they contain a lot of gloating and taunting. Other managers, often of the teams being taunted, could reply. Because it was kept contained per season, for all previous seasons it is easy to go back and read a past favorite. Further, as the league changes over time, new-to-the-league managers can read past issues they never would have received another way. League Chat is close, but not quite the same experience and is much more suited for league-wide banter and discussion outside of the newsletter.

Put the message board back on the league page. Why would you take that out? It's vital for posting news under distinct and separate topics that won't get lost in the chat.
Patrick Charney commented
moving my 3 leagues to a different platform this year. what a shame, we've been using yahoo for years, and it really was the best platform until now. did Musk buy Yahoo or something?
Patrick Charney commented
WHY would you remove the message boards?? The chat feature is terrible and you have to sift through transactions to find a message? I can't even separate the chat into different leagues. Terrible decision made without thinking of how it would affect your users.

This is like ESPN FFB. It is a zero scape of sterile interactions. Nobody gets to cheer or brood about loosing. It’s like talking on the moon with your visor open.

I believe it BLOWS that the message board is gone. Obviously, UNIDEN excuse me. Yahoo, did not want to devote man hours to monitoring this. Plus in one league. A manager took offense to my comments as racially bias. So Yahoo thinking I called the guy a spook, spear chucker & or some other stupid name whites called blacks, African Americans or…?
I have a suggestion. Just read the comments as informative and sometimes comical. And forward the racial card that some conveniently play into the Round File! The insecurities of a few are fuel to erase what was a good avenue to help some by providing information about FFB and how to not be a reverse bigot! I totally miss the boards

This is a very bad idea. Please bring back the message boards! Message boards allow us to talk about individual topics that we need to refer to or revisit throughout the year. I understand that you can pin certain topics to go back to but this is less user friendly than the old message boards and my league managers won't be able to figure it out. We previously had message board topics such as
Draft Day Details
Last Place Penalties
These are crucial messages for the message board that the league will refer back to many times throughout the year. We can not do this with the new chat feature.
PLEASE BRING THE MESSAGE BOARD BACK OR WE WILL HAVE TO LOOK INTO OTHER OPTIONS FOR OUR FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE!
