Due to shortcomings of other areas of the Yahoo platform (roster size limitations and number of keepers), leagues frequently use the message board to conduct offline business to create true dynasty leagues. A number of leagues post their rules on the message board, discuss changes for future years there, and actually conduct drafts and keepers beyond the limit of 30 (including minor league players which fit in the NA category). Eliminating this as an option makes Yahoo's platform no better than ESPN's, and substandard compared to Fantrax which offers deeper rosters and more robust drafting options that reduce the need for message boards.
And at least those other platforms still have the message board option. You've reduced the ability to communicate, which is one of the fun parts about fantasy sports. This was a terrible decision, and I recommend you reinstate message boards immediately.
How long are you gathering feedback? The overwhelming consensus here, on social media, and even on your post opening the season is managers need a message board and people will leave the platform without it. Come on Yahoo, this can't be that hard a fix and can't possibly be saving you that much money.
