This is why these threads often end up being interesting...
Any chance you increase the amout of threads you can pin? Why limit to 3? Also why 5k chars limit for commish note?
Not sure on the pinned threads. I can ask the message board guy. Re: the commish note, it is probably because it gets displayed in-line on the league home. You specifically want this for your league rules? We've talked about adding a more formal way for a commish to input league rules. Sounds like that might be what you really want. That way it doesn't get pasted in-line in the league home every time, and you can post timely commish notes without bumping your rules off.
Also when will you guys add in custom leagues the aiblity to have widgets/custom-urls in league front page?
If I understand what you mean by 'widgets', I honestly wouldn't hold your breath on that one. I think it is something we see as taking a huge amount of work, being very risky in terms of security holes, and having little demand from users. As for a custom URL, at least to some extent that exists today and has for years. Your commish has the ability to set a URL of the formhttp://basketball.fantasysports.yahoo.c ... cafeisking
and as long as you renew your league through us as expected, it works from season to season.
Also when will you guys have a league live-chat section?
That one is on "the list".
Also I would love to see yahoo give commisioners the ability to PAUSE LIVE DRAFTS & REVERSE PICK SELECTIONS during live draft
Not only do we have that, we've had it for like 3 years now.
Also I wish yahoo would somewhat reduce total powers that a commish can do with their private leagues: specifically remove the commish's ability to lock someone's ability to post in the league or email league members.
That isn't likely to change, to be honest. There is a fundamental philosophical decision that if you play in a private league, you trust the commish. If the commish does things that might make you distrust them, we try to make sure those are visible (through league transactions, for instance). But I don't quite get the use case where you trust a commish to edit your lineup, drop your players, etc. etc., but not to control message board posts. For private leagues to work, the commish has to be trustworthy.
add a "note section" in the trading block area
I like that, and it wouldn't be very difficult. It probably couldn't be very long, but adding a short note should be pretty simple, actually.
Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully it helps to know that a few of the things you want have already existed for years.
