Yahoo League Import Problems

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!

I was able to manually import my YAhoo league using the LEague ID - when the popup comes up I do NOT reauthorize the token, I say "no thanks it's working" (even though it isn't) and then my league actually appears.

This is how I did it, choose yahoo from the dropdown, tell it that it already works, then enter league ID and hit import. After that I had a successful draft!
