    The last few days Yahoo seems to switched their biggest entries GPP from $5 to now $15 dollars. I used to love MME on the $5 dollar but now since its $15 an entry not as doable for me. Anyone know what prompted the change? I know I wont MME as much anymore due to this I personally wish they would go back.

    I don’t post .gifs but they do say a picture is worth a thousand words. Imagine what you can say with a .gif.

    I wish we could leave well alone, unfortunately there were a handful of people that began taking advantage and were turning our threads into ‘troll’ gif threads. We had to step in after enough complaints.

    Members continue to post gifs now, with some content added in, and they are fine. ‘Trolling’ has never been allowed on RG, at least not in the 5+ years I’ve been around.

    I’d be more than happy to discuss via PM if anyone wishes though.

    Per Daniel Haight, chat for dfs contests and leagues does not have timeline for return. They’re aiming for before NFL starts back up, so a long ways off. I deleted Facebook recently and have no plans to get it back. I’ll stick with the weekly RG leagues if someone can PM me link

    This is frustrating, it’s too bad they couldn’t leave the functional chat interface alone while they separately work on the new one

    Thought you were hating on the NHL forum! I get what you were saying though. I was censored on the MLB page the other day. I just wanted to stack the game played in Mexico.

    Oh no…definitely not hating on hockey. In fact, I enjoyed being in that forum with you, Pho, yisman…the Yahoo guys.

    I just think our chat periodically would have “moderation” issues here at RG. Like the NBA forum….lol. And I would hate for the honored and fabled Mod leader to have to apply too much beat down on us. :)

    If you were referring to your post with no content other than a gif, had nothing to do with censorship my friend. We just expect a little content with a forum post.

    Got it. I was unaware. I was actually posting that because I stacked the hell out of that game and it paid out nicely!

    Are late quarter contests single entry only now? I made small profits playing multiple lineups in those contests.

    Unfortunately this was not an option. We built the old chat using Yahoo Messenger, which was recently shut down. We had to launch on the new platform with limited functionality, unfortunately. The good news is the new chat will be much better once we iron out the bugs and can build in a bunch of new features (including adding DFS back).

    Looks like the answer is yes. I don’t mind though, actually. It makes me focus more. Wish they still had a similar larger-field single entry $1 contest

    It looks like most Yahoo GPP contests are single entry now, aside from their biggest contests.

    This is a tremendous loss for small time players. A late quarter game with less than 500 entrants allows players a realistic shot at turning a quarter into $1.50 consistently. I already won 10 dollars this season. All of that sounds insignificant, but it does slowly grow your bankroll.

    This was unintentional. We’re fixing and it will be ME moving forward.

    Just read this thread. Any feedback from limiting the sharks in low level games?

    hey old crew, we’re trying out a slack channel for sharing gifs and extolling the virtues of dong hunting. I know a lot of you never transitioned over to the facebook group, we miss the old crew, please pm me for a slack invite (but tell me who you are because I have trouble keeping track of it)
