Yahoo horrible format change can now be changed back

Postby connman » Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:49 am

I wasn't sure where to post this, but it's big news as everyone in the world hates the new yahoo redesign. I guess enough of us complained that you can now revert to the old format....meaning white background with white letters.

I'm not sure who at yahoo decided to go translucent black with white, and go against what has worked really well since the invention of paper, but whatever.

Anyway go to edit team info, and page settings: page theme is now an option

Select "day game, dark text on white" and it will revert your format across all leagues to a format you can actually read.

All the best and hope this helps you all.

Yes, you have been able to do this for several months now. It's still not quite the old format and player cards we once knew and loved, but being able to get rid of the black background was an improvement for an overall horrendous format change.

Am I the only one who thinks it's an improvement? It seems very legible, even more so than the white option.

The main problem is that their new player-switching mechanism is truly awful. Totally laggy and unresponsive. Why can't we just drag and drop? I don't really care what it looks like but the functionality is pathetic.

I like the black background for checking it out in the dark. But yes...the lag on swapping players is pathetic. Yahoo is the worst internet company on the planet. I'm surprised they haven't gone BK yet. They truly suck at everything.

I wish you could change the player pages back to the way they were. I don't like the darker background with white letters.

Just realized there is no more notes section. I used to keep a list of Streamers on there so I knew who to pick up and drop each day.
