    I am good to go for the 2023 season.

    In the event you were not aware, the Message Board is gone. Yahoo is no longer providing it for us. I suspect not having the message board available is Yahoo's way of forcing everyone to use a different communications modality. So we can likely say good by to Yahoo Fantasy League Message boards permanently. Yahoo has never taken longer than a few weeks to fix any bugs or problems, so if there was a problem it would not take a whole season to correct. Also, in Yahoo's message about the message boards, there is no mention of any problems with it. Just that it will not be available.

    I have a few options which may work in place of the MB.

    In the bottom right corners of the League and Team Page there is a purple icon for a chat function. From this you will be able to see all messages across your entire Yahoo fantasy leagues. Each message will be preceded by the name of the league name for each message. One of my hockey leagues uses this and it really works well. This way emails can still be used for team to team private interaction.

    In another league I learned about an App that might work for us. Here is what he said about it.

    "I have been using the app Slack for league communication for several years now. It is a free App accessible via desktop or mobile. Very simple to use and customizable which the yahoo chat does not have. Separate 'channels' can be created for various topics instead of having to have all communication in one long string which we'd have using the Yahoo chat."

    "You only need to sign up via email address and be invited to the channel by whoever creates it. I am willing to help set it up if this is something the league would want to use."
