Oh crap this Rotoworld forums platform just turned the headings into light peacock blue.  My eyes are burning trying to read this stuff.

 

Agreed. Too bright.

Yeah combine the light colored peacock blue you can barely make out with a background so white-bright it is like staring at headlights on high beam and it is obvious the coder was totally drunk when he did this.

We all been upgraded to premium. Hippie yah

 

Another let’s make something better when things are AOK. I just don’t get why. ESPN and there new platform sucks, now rotoworld changes this forum. On my iPad I need to shrink the page to read the whole sentence, which makes the writing smaller. LOL

Big downgrade for me.  Everything is oversized, and you have to scroll way too many times on the depth charts.  But, then I don't do the internet on my phone.  I use a laptop or desktop.  Seems so many sites I've used forever have been ruined by the changes designed so they work better on phones.:(

The sky blue font is brutal. I feel like I'm going to have a seizure.

Wow, scanning some headlines just became a big chore!  Now I have to scroll down through giant pictures and other garbage.

Agree "upgrade" is no good.

When you change player news to MLB, no tab for NL or AL.

In only NL leagues, hate wading through tons of AL news.

Page is too spread out, lots of scrolling needed to get to anything.

Is there anyway to access the previous version after login?

Site now looks like a standard CBS/Yahoo type site with all the focus on sales/marketing.

Gone are the days of All Star Stats.

Yes, that too....but mainly the remedial look that all these sites have been changing too, for years, is my issue.  It's like it's for little kids or seniors. 

 

I was just thinking lately how great this site is and how it had been the same for so many years.  Now, poof, it's gone downhill fast.

Not sure how you are finding it slow to navigate. I'm not having any trouble. I like the changes. We get set in our ways. Change is good.

I can't decide which is worse, the Rotoworld homepage which are annoying, ugly and a pain to navigate or the ugly bright hard to read forums

For what it's worth, we mods had no idea this was coming, and agree that it's terrible.  The good news is that it's so terrible that I can't imagine it won't be changed.

If you want to make sure your voice is heard, please send feedback to help@rotoworld.com.  I don't think the admins from the RW mothership read the forums very often.

Yes, this is absolutely horrible. Why do people want to take something that is perfectly fine and practical and change it to something new...just for the sake of doing something different. So ridiculous. The blue font is an assault on my eyes. 

 

And I had to change the size of the page on my laptop screen because it was too big.

Further issues, or just changes for the worse.  If you go to Depth Charts, which is what I've always used to quickly find players I need info on, it's hard to navigate.  But, I found the toggle so you can pick a team.  But, then you get the Team News sidebar...so when you look at a player.....for instance I just checked Cory Joseph out.  Wanted to see his Game Logs to make a decision on him.  All the stats no longer fit, so you have to use a despicable slide bar, because of the Team News tidbits on the side, that I could give a hoot about.

I could possibly learn to live with the forum setup. Just put 3-D goggles on. The Rotoworld main page however is an absolute epic failure beyond all reason. The day fantasy died. FEB 12th 2019. Back to old school for us die hards.

They should allow those who want, to use the old site....permanently!

 

Let the cell phone people, or whomever this new site works for, use this.
