Yahoo! League Trade Deadline Question...

Postby skinny d » Thu Nov 13, 2008 2:01 pm

If Yahoo! says the 'The deadline to complete trades in this league is Friday, Nov 14' {default setting) does that mean the deadline is today (Thursday the 13th) at midnight (or 3 am EST because of the PST settings) or tomorrow at the end of the day?

Any response is appreciated.

Skinny,

It's been my experience with Yahoo that that could mean as soon as it hits 11/14 (IE 12:01 AM) or right before 11:59PM on that day, or anywhere in between.

My earnest advice is to get EVERYTHING accepted before 11/14. The trade being in process before that time as an accepted trade is all you need, but do NOT count on doing anything that day as it is a total roll of the dice if it will or won't allow you to.

This is my impression as well - you should have until a minute before midnight tomorrow night ;-D

Well, now it reads "The deadline to complete trades in this league was Nov. 14th" on my homepage. And yet my proposed trades are still there, looking as if someone could accept/reject them if they wanted. And it still allows me to create new trades. I don't get it. Why change the wording to 'was' if nothings has changed? Or has it? I can't tell because none of these bastards in my league will even look at their damn trade requests and respond one way or the other.

Same thing happened with me. They never looked at their trades either and I never got to make a trade. Either way, the trade deadline has certainly passed by now but my offers are STILL there on my MY TEAM page.
