 How is this still an issue so close to the season? What type of people do you guys have working there that you didn't get the kinks out before fantasy season started. This is causing a lot of problems for people trying to fill out their leagues. I've always used Yahoo! but I might go somewhere else now if you guys can't get your act together. 

 

If I can't fill out my league then the message board is useless. AND YOU STILL DON'T HAVE A TIMELINE FOR A FIX

**UPDATE**

We verified that the 828 error with message boards was resolved early on 8/22. Engineering updated later that night that the fix for polls is live (8/22 @ 10:30pm PT).

If you are still experiencing issues with the message board not accepting posts, the most common cause is the use of an outdated browser. Please check for updates.

I checked and both my Chrome and IE are up to date and I still can't post a topic or reply to existing topics in the message boards. 

 

Nothing has been fixed.

 I just tried posting on the message boards using my gf laptop using Chrome and IE; neither worked. I then downloaded Firefox to ensure I had the latest version; that didn't work either. 

This has been a known issue for quite some time, but you still don't have it fixed and came out with some lame explanation about updates, when that obviously is not the case. 

Now I see how poorly run Yahoo! is and why they are a sinking ship. You can't fix a problem as simple as message board script. Yahoo! won't even take any more customer calls because they can't figure how to address anyones problems, so they hide behind this Known Issues Board which doesn't work and is not timely at all. 

How about you guys actually figure out how to fix this issue?

Seriously??!!!!  You're still having problems with the "Must post a valid message" error.!!!!!  You first acknowledged this problem back in June!!  Do you know how frustrating it is to compose a message only to loose it to this error code!!!???
 

Our CBS commissioner league had planned to move to Yahoo, but it surely isn't going to happen now!!!
