Yahoo League Import Problems

  • 2
  • Announcement
  • Updated 1 year ago
We have been working with Yahoo on identifying why about 5% of Yahoo Leagues won't import.  The oddest part is that you (customers) try to import them with no luck...then you let us know about it and we have been able to import almost 100% of the league IDs you send.  We use the exact same app as you all do.

The issue seems to be with failed servers on Yahoo. After a few failed attempts, the requests are routed to a different server that works.  So that is why a small percent of leagues fail to import initially, but import just fine a few seconds/minutes/hours later.  I don't know how long you have to wait.

Anyway, we apologize for the hassle and appreciate your patience with this.

At this point, keep trying to import your Yahoo leagues...maybe wait 10+ minutes and try again.  Or let us know your DA email address and Yahoo LeagueIDs that you are unable to import.  We will continue to help get them imported immediately.  It is peak draft season!

Hi Brian - Yahoo's API platform is down due to peak demand. Please use the Chrome Extension for live draft sync as that is working perfectly.  The "Import Now" draft picks button will not work.  The League Import won't work until they are back up which will most likely be after peak drafts tonight.

If you need to import a Yahoo league for a draft tonight, we can help you manually enter the information and get you going with the Chrome Extension draft sync.

I have contacted them, but we can't do anything on our end.  It is frustrating as hell.

Yahoo is getting their platform back up right now...should be ready in a matter of minutes.  Can you use the Chrome Extension? That is working perfectly and is the best option. It also syncs picks every 1-2 seconds, so the user experience is great.

Yahoo is back up. Import Draft Picks and League Import should work now. Although I still recommend the Chrome Extension for draft sync.

Jeff,

Can you give me your email associated with your DA account please?  Looks like your draft may be over at this point, but would still like to offer some assistance in setting you up with our in-season analyzer if that interests you?  You can also email us at  support@draftanalyzer.com.

Thanks!

Hello Dan,

I have imported your league onto your DA Dashboard. Please go into "Setting Options", General Settings, Teams to click on your team and click SAVE.. Also, you can adjust the Draft Order and/or change it.  Also, if this is a keeper league follow the same steps above and then click on keeper to enter that information.  If you have any other questions, or need further assistance Dan please shoot us an email at support@draftanalyzer.com.

Thanks!

Yahoo League ID 1440065.  Still having sync issues.  Everything seems to be working except for recommended free agents - it's showing me all the best players in the league that are already drafted on other teams (i.e. they are not free agents).  Please advise, thanks.
