League Chat is Up!

Posted on: September 9, 2009 1:50 pm
 
I realize it's been a while since I last posted, but Phase One of our League Chat is up and running on the site and wanted to let you know about it and what you can expect out of it in the future. 

Basically, we've taken the chat from the Draft Room and Scoreboard and made it available on every page in your league.  It pops-out so it can stay open with you as you move about the site.  it will show you which of your league members are also online and allow you all to chat in a chat room or you can privately chat with individual members.

In your league navigation menu (the same place where you access 'My Team', 'Live Scoring', etc) look to the right and you'll see 'League Chat'.  Simply click on it to pop it out and start chatting with your league mates. 

I mentioned that this is Phase One because this is only the beginning of what will be several enhancements over the next few weeks.  Soon, there will be a number next to the chat to let you know how many of your league mates are online.  And shortly after that, we'll be launching a notification system to let you know when other league members are chatting.

I'll let you know as soon as each version is released.  Enjoy!

League Chat is Up!

Is there any way to delete a post in the League Chat? I called someone out and now I feel remorse for posting it. Please help. I feel embarrassed every time I open the Game Tracker page - there's my post right there for everyoen to see.

I'm all for enhancements, but one terrible issue with the chat is that you no longer able to silence members posting abusive comments in your private leagues.  In the past, you were allowed to 'silence' a person if it was needed...this silence feature is still available for the 'commish' leagues, however it no longer works since these individuals can now post anytime they wish!

This needs to be corrected, moderators of private commish leagues should be able to shut down any individual you is writing abusive comments.

Please look into this.

Thanks.

Wow, I have an actual comment about the live chat.  I...we (my league) has a major issue with the chat....the names.  It shows the managers real name from some obscure CBS.com account setting.  Who thought that was a good idea?  Here's the problem, how many leagues have you played in where you know everyone's real name?  We got into the draft room and nobody could tell who was who.  We had to go in and manually change our CBS accounts to our fantasy team names so we knew who was posting what.  Now that the chat (and it's settings) are throughout the whole season we can't...or shouldn't change it back.  Now you've got a bunch of fantasy names in people's CBS account settings; probably not an ideal situation as I'm sure this breaks something else, somewhere else.

The solution...well, there's a couple options.  Ideally it would be a setting in the chat or team setup where a manager could select what is displayed.  It could/should be tied to the league team name, or the league manager name as a manager has the option to change the name versus the team name.

Not sure if this is the place to ask my question....

When do the College games for the College Pick em get posted each week?  I tried to make my picks for this week and it said the deadline had been passed.  I figured that is not right but even this morning it says that as well.  I also use the Office Pool Manager and would like to know when to tell players that the games for the week are ready to be picked.

You guys have any idea when that is going to be live so we can more easily manage our teams with an iPhone? This is live now.  Apparently the Apple iPhone app approval process leaves something to be desired.

iPhone App

Hey Mike,

Question on the CBS Sports iPhone app..  The Fantasy link has been saying that "Football will be added closer to the start of the season."  I watched the Steelers' game last night and still no luck.

You guys have any idea when that is going to be live so we can more easily manage our teams with an iPhone?

Thanks!

-Alan

The NFL Fantasy product needs a schedule-maker built in.  It should be part of the setup.  Simple wizard - how many teams, how many weeks, how many conferences, divisions, etc.  Then it generates.  Something like this: .  It's very tedious to go manually update the whole schedule one week at a time which is the only option right now.  Thanks.

One thing that definitely needs to be added to the NFL Fantasy Football product is a schedule-maker.  I should be able to say 12 teams, 13 weeks, 2 conferences, 4 divisions, play each team in division twice everyone else once, and boom, scheduled.  I shouldn't have to go manually enter the schedule week by week to get this.  Would appreciate it if a schedule builder could be added into the setup.  Thanks.
