Help! Yahoo on fritz!

Postby 34=Sweetness » Sun Aug 15, 2004 4:37 pm

I have a draft at 7:00 central tonight and I cant go to my team page, email the league or anything. The clock is also frozen as it says it is 20 hours 21 minutes until the draft, which is obviously wrong. How do you fix this problem, or can I only pray Yahoo gets back up by draft time?

Yeah yahoo is down for me too so if the draft is on yahoo then everyone is in the same boat.

"We are currently performing server maintenance. Please try again shortly...
Sorry for the inconvenience

-- Yahoo! Sports"

That's the message it gave me when I tried to get on.

I just tried and got a message that said they were performing maintenence, so they either got hijacked or everyone will be down for a while.

"Routine Maintenace" I believe... try back. Usually not more than 30 minutes top-end. You should be fine for your draft.

we had the same thing happen in our league. our draft time came and went with no link to enter the draft room. we never did draft, so we figured it mustve did an autodraft, but it didnt.

nothing happened.

we got an email from yahoo, saying they would set a new date for our draft. the new date worked, and everything went smoothly.

you may have to get a new draft date.

I was in my draft when this happened. I had the 5th pick, and Portis had somehow slipped to me...and just a second before I was going to enter my pick, the thing froze. I thought it was just my computer, and I was furious.
