 My user name in all of my fantasy sport leagues now appears as "--hidden--" so I cannot click on my name & see my profile/past leagues etc. 

 

I did not change a thing in any setting or anything else. I've reached out to Yahoo to help resolve this, but their help center appears to be useless. 

 

Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

I had a similar issue.  I just found out how to fix it.  Here is what you do:

The manager will need to go to the Edit Team Settings option for each team they have and select the option to allow others to see their email, and Submit the change.

I searched forever on how to fix that.  If that doesn't work you have to go to your Yahoo Profile and make changes as well.  Hope that helps.

 All of my teams had the option for "Allow others in league to see my email address?" already selected as 'Yes'.

 

And when I click on my User name in the top left of any Yahoo page & click on 'Profile', I just get sent to an error page saying:

 

Sorry, server error. Please check the URL for proper spelling and capitalization. If you're having trouble locating a destination on Yahoo!, try visiting the Yahoo! home page or look through a list of Yahoo!'s online services. Also, you may find what you're looking for if you try searching below.

 

Not sure what to do now..? What's the best way to get a hold of Yahoo? Because I haven't heard a thing back from them after multiple emails...

Also get the following when trying to edit profile:

Allow others in league to see my email address?

I click "yes" and SAVE, but when I check it again, it's reverted back to "no."

I tried this and it didn't work. What DID work was this: Go to Yahoo Answers>MyActivity Tab>Change Name. Mine was blank, I'm guessing yours will be too if you continue to have this problem. Enter a name, go back to your league and you should see the name next to your avatar, etc. Not sure how Yahoo doesn't have an answer for this posted any where. But I had to find this page by searching Google, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. They do have the best FF interface, tho.

I am having the same issue.

Just so other people reading this are clear. My email isn not hidden it's Manager that is hidden which has caused all history to be hidden as well.

 

So far I've gotten no response from Yahoo.
