    The problem seems to be when 'bullets' are used i.e. in the F/F articles most use bullets at some point in the article, these are the lines that flow over the right page margin. i havent seen this happen where bullets are NOT used.

    OK, it's on our bug list for our tech team to look at.

    A bunch of the straggling site features have shown up this week:

    - A bunch of new stuff added to the Leading Indicators page (under Stats & Tools), including historical PQS logs and batter consistency reports. Once the 2012 season starts, the other reports on that page that currently return no data will start working. HTML versions of the PQS logs are available, CSV should be there later today.
    - on the team depth chart page (Teams/Depth Charts), the injury indicator icons (the red "I"s) now link to our full injury report (AL | NL).

    Enjoy!

    No update, sorry. On our tech team's list of to-dos, but honestly there are higher-priority things on their plate.

    I generally love the redesign but the auto dropdown of the menu bar is driving me crazy. If my mouse wanders to far north, the drop down drops and I wind up clicking on a link that I don't want to click on. Is this bothering anyone else? I find it particularly frustrating when I'm looking up players in the PlayerLink. Can I disable it? (IE 8).

    Can't disable it, no. But we're trying to make it a little less sensitive.

    As Ray as seen from my comments, i am struggling with the new design as well ... latest peeve ... getting/finding the 'right' articles on a daily basis ... there are 3 articles today 3/15 ... i go to the first article (Playing Time) from the home page ... then since i dont know what/where the next articles subject is ... i go back to the home page, click on the next 'bullet' to find the F/F article ... dont know which subject the next article is ... so back to the home page to the next bullet after F/F ... to find the Dr HQ article .... VERY clunky ... and like AndyK above inidcates the auto dropdown is so sensitive and you would have to go through the whole thing to find all the articles for a given day ... i use my back and forth method

    TallSavage, take a look at the "Latest from" section at the bottom of the home page. That might meet your needs a little better.

    could this section be at the top of the page, just under the picture ... save having to scroll down to find this section when going back and forth

    Having only used the old site for about 1 month, I think that the newer version certainly is much more visually appealing (which counts for a lot, who wants to pay for a premium fantasy baseball site that looks like it is still in the 90's?). Also, I think it's easier to get from the homepage to any other relatively recent articles. With the exception of viewing the site on a funky mobile device, I struggle to see how anyone could not find their way around the site...

    On a personal note, I'm hoping to be able to prevent my league's keepers from being shown on CDG reports... Any suggestions? I can't find the other thread I created on the issue.

    finding a (new) way around the site ... it is seeming to be of this is the (new) way it is, that was the old way ... teach an old dog new tricks and all that ...

    Ray ... just wondering the importance of Recent Headlines (below the picture) versus the Latest Articles (by topic) below the chart?

    You have the 'kept' column on the report, with a "Y" in it for the kept players... if you're set up right. If so, dump the CDG output to Excel, throw a filter on that column for the "Y", and delete all of those rows.

    This isn't an "our way or the highway" situation. We've definitely been making a bunch of changes to the new site as we go here.... fixing things that are broken, which is distinct from things that some people don't like. But there are a number of factors in play that make us unable to act on every suggestion we get:

    The new site has only been live for about six weeks. While we're still adjusting it and growing into it, it needs a settling period. We can't run around with our hair on fire changing things based on any suggestion we get, good or bad. As you note, there is a learning curve associated with the changeover to begin with, we can't go around making that worse by moving things to a different place every time you log in. Our subscriber base skews a little older than other sites anyway, so there's definitely a change aversion among some of our users. We made one giant change, we can't pile on with subsequent changes and keep destabilizing them. Especially at this time of year, a good portion of our users want to come here, get what they need, and go draft. We need to support that.

    And that doesn't even get into the availability of technical resources, or the technical risk associated with making changes during our highest-traffic month of the year, etc. Their priority is to fix things that still aren't working, not to get into design improvements.

    We will be continuing to refine the site. And the feedback we've collected is going to be taken seriously. But we're going to move deliberately, for all of the reasons above.

    As far as Recent Headlines/Latest articles, we're just providing multiple ways for people to consume the content. People want to digest stuff in different ways. You have the top/dynamic menu, the slideshow, the recent articles area, and the "Latest from..." at the bottom. We're not forcing everyone to use the site the same way; we're giving options.

    Oh, and I think your Fact/Fluke printing issue is going to be fixed tonight. Take a look a little later...

    IMHO ... the old way was nice in that each day new articles were listed, you went to specific day read your articles, moved forward or back through the list days/articles ... while nice to look at and i'm sure done for reasons 'on the other side of the screen' (page layout, HTML formatting etc) the new format just seems too 'bells and whistle'-ish to me ... scrolling pictures (slideshow), dynamic menu, etc

    Thanks savage, I think you've made your views pretty clear at this point.

    I'll check on the F/F printing thing again.

    I don't have an update, I'll let you know when I do.

    I don't see anything wrong in Smoak today, can you elaborate?
