Yahoo Draft Countdown displaying incorrect time?

Postby Mentz » Sat Dec 17, 2011 6:43 am

The live draft for my league is set to take place on Sun Dec 18 @ 4:00am CST. But the draft countdown is showing 14hrs and 23mins until draft time. Current CST is Fri Dec 16, 11:37pm.

Going by Yahoo's countdown that would make the draft date/time: Sat Dec 17 @ 2:00pm CST. :s

Anyone else encounter this? Should I go by the countdown or the time I've set the draft to take place?

I've also tried changing my Yahoo profile to CST, but the countdown timer remains the same.

Hmm, first I've heard of it. Have you contacted Yahoo Fantasy Help Desk yet?

No I haven't, but my live draft went off according to the countdown timer which was wrong. :\

All live drafts are set to CST which I assumed was CST in America. I thought this would make sense considering Yahoo is an American company. Obviously not... I'm going to reset the league and try and figure out what's going on.

Ok, just figured this out, for me the timezone is set to WST in Australia [although on Yahoo it still shows timezone as 'CST']. So does that mean the timezone is set to the commish's timezone? :?

Looking into this further it looks like it was a browser issue. I was using Firefox on Mac and for some reason it was putting in times in WST, but displaying them as CST. I just used Safari on Mac and it is putting in times correctly as CST and the countdown timer is displaying the correct information. Damn Firefox... :-t
