Is there a new interface that you guys are testing and/or rolling out?

I Logged in this morning and noticed the layout and interface were completely different.

A glitch, maybe? or a website redesign?

You have a severe glitch in your new interface system. Once a players game starts owners are unable to do anything with that player until the next day because the player is locked out.

It keeps owners from adjusting their next days roster in advance in daily leagues. It also keeps them from adjusting the following weeks roster in advance in weekly leagues.

This is a major change from the way it was being handled and a hindrance to team management.

Is it a glitch or is it the way the system was designed?

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

This was fixed a couple of hours ago. Thanks.

CoorLighters Jun 05 '13

Thx, Pee-Dee. I use the ipad and your right when you switch to landscape you get all the info.

CoorLighters Jun 05 '13

I just wish on the message board when you delete a post it could get rid of it instead of just saying deleted. Seem like a waste of space.

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

It is a bug, we will have it fixed shortly in terms of the daily future lineup setting.

seafish Jun 04 '13

so far it looks good but i would like to see % owned next to our players on our rosters just like it showes on the free agents list

thnks

Can we get an option for Classic view?

loubonz Jun 04 '13

The ads are more imposing now than ever. Just curious if Classic View can even be possible?

CW_Mac Jun 04 '13

I haven't seen a single ad since the redesign rolled out haha. I have AdBlock installed in my Google Chrome, so maybe adding an ad blocker extension will help.

fleafounder Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Ads pay the bills. They keep the servers running and pay for the live stats.

We could introduce an ad-free version for a small fee. It would also make the site faster (you won't have to wait for ads to load).

loubonz Jun 04 '13

copy that, i was just stating with new layout they are overwhelming. Ill take Chris's advice for chrome. Thanks. You guys are great, love the site just a sucker for old vs new.

ASIANJEWKING Jun 05 '13

ill click the ads if you go back to the classic view

fleafounder Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

Sorry you don't like the new layout. What specifically did you like better about the old design? We'll be making adjustments in the next few days based on everyone's feedback. Thanks.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Yes, we are testing it right now. It's not a glitch. Look for it throughout the day.

CW_Mac Jun 04 '13

Awesome. Any enhancements in particular that we should be on the lookout for and test out for you guys when they roll out?

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Navigate the site as you normally would. It has the same basic core functionality you're used to. The main Fleaflicker page (if you log out) will give you details of the new enhancements & look. The UI has changed for the better and gives a contemporary/sleek feel -- the rebuild has been tested for months on end for optimal performance on all browsers -- specifically the Android OS (and other mobile/tablet devices).

There is special emphasis (with special testing done) for the Android OS. If you're using a mobile device, you can add Fleaflicker to your home screen as a bookmark and the site will work superbly with our mobile optimized build.

We are very excited about this and it will allow us to add more game-play enhancements (user suggestions) much easier and faster in time than we have in the past.

If you have any questions, you can feel free to ask us. If you find anything that you may think is a glitch or a bug, please e-mail us at fleaflicker.com

We spent a lot of time and testing to make the best fantasy sports site (Fleaflicker) even better for our users -- and we're excited for you to try it out.

Dynasty001 Jun 04 '13

Only glitch I've seen so far is that I can't reply or post anything on league message boards.

CW_Mac Jun 04 '13

Dynasty,

Go back and try it again. I just replied to a message on the MB and it worked fine.

Dynasty001 Jun 04 '13

I still cant. Im using google chrome, just for the record. Whatever its fine for now I'm sure it'll be fixed, just trying to help.

CW_Mac Jun 04 '13

Yeah, I'm using Chrome as well. Strange that it works for some of us.

I'm sure it's just a minor glitch right now.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Please e-mail all bugs/glitches to us at fleaflicker.com if you can. It will get awfully confusing using a thread and we will respond faster that way.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

@Dynasty001 - We're aware of the issue. @Chris -- Thanks for your support.

BlackOmega Jun 04 '13

I can immediately suggest that you put back the highlighting of new posts on league message boards, that way they stood out. With just a tiny "new" in green you have to carefully pore over posts to find new ones whereas before you could rapidly scroll through the board to find new posts

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Please direct all suggestions to our e-mail as well please and we will reply. Thanks.

Pennypacker023 Jun 04 '13

Looks really good so far... glad to see this has finally come to fruition.

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

Really miss the player info other than game stats.

Bama14 Jun 04 '13

Not a fan at all. Matter a fact it sucks. To hard to do anything if you are using your phone also

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

I love the optimizations. Just need to work out some minor tweaks and add back what was removed. I love setting lineups. But like the NFL.com site, we need a full site option that gives us the flat view we once had. You guys are doing great things. Thanks.

[Deleted User] Jun 04 '13

All that is on the NAV bar on top of the page now in black

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

Like Rick said, it is all there. Either on the top in black of the nav bar, or you have to expand the nav bar by clicking the rectangle button on the top right with the three lines

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

Nope... Click on a player. Tell me when he was drafted, how tall he is, how old, how much he weighs. ... Rank, headlines, transaction history. Not there when browsing from my phone.

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

Yes... I see the nav bar " the black box with three lines" that is how I navigated to the forum. Still no player info.

[Deleted User] Jun 04 '13

Hal , sorry if I am stepping on toes, not meaning to..... Pee-Dee, do you mean in a league or overall?

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

In a league.

I am not trying to be hard to please. I love the changes. Deployments never go off without something unexpected. This is small. I just hope I get it back.

jcorbs Jun 04 '13

@Pee-Dee When I click a player I see all of that information. It is on the left hand side of the screen.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

@Bama14 - Sorry you feel that way. Let our support staff know if you need help navigating or finding anything. It should be much faster and easier to use, but may take a few times to get used to. Everything is still there and much better optimized.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

@Pee-Dee - It is there, let me know what you are having trouble seeing, and if you don't see it, what browser and version you're using.

jcorbs Jun 04 '13

For Pee-Dee:

You'll notice Victor Cruz's player Bio on the left hand column on the page of the uploaded image. This *should be the information you are seeking.

Bama14 Jun 04 '13

I like it when I'm using my laptop. But I rarely get to get on flea with my laptop. Its just not a phone savvy version

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 04 '13

It is mobile optimized to the fullest -- this is where we made the most strides during development and testing (so mobile experience would be easier and better and we're excited about it and hope you are too). What are you having trouble viewing on your phone? Hopefully with a few shots you will become accustom with it. We think you will and we're here to help if you need it.

Gridiron-IQ Jun 04 '13

I think alot of people are having trouble seeing everything on phones and ipads...i do it through an ipad and i cant see any of the old player info like his age and college and all that that used to be on the right side of the page...also cant see anything that takes you to the individual player news that used to be under the players stats on the right side...and the old version on your team page on the right side it showed the number of players you had at each position and the minimum and maximum that you could have...that i also cant see...basically it seems like on phones and ipads people cant see the complete left and right sides of the pages...

Gridiron-IQ Jun 04 '13

Also you guys should definitely highlight the new messages on the message boards...its hard to notice which ones are the new posts...

Pee-Dee Jun 04 '13

Flip your pad to the landscape view. I didn't see it until I did this. Player info is on left in landscape.

Keith_Hughes Jun 04 '13

cant do mock or live drafts

Gridiron-IQ Jun 04 '13

Awesome!! That works...thanks for clueing me in on that...

Pee-Dee Jun 05 '13

Email Draft is working.

[Deleted User] Jun 05 '13

@Keith..... They are aware of the draft problem and are working on it

Keith_Hughes Jun 05 '13

Mock draft is working now

idk about live

Bama14 Jun 05 '13

Also its to hard to add a player to your watchlist if you are using your phone. When you click the little star it actually clicks on the player. A little annoying

Pee-Dee Jun 05 '13

I find it hard to add players on smaller displays. I miss pinch zoom.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

In terms of the small displays and the icons to move claims up, down, X out claims, we realize they are small and we are going to see what we can do to enlarge them.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

@Bama14 - The star is small, we realize that, we'll see what we can do as well.

buddz Jun 05 '13

So far it looks decent but i cant seem to find a way to " cut" a player! I have a illegal roster and need to move someone of the dl ! Im on android n have spent hrs going thru the menus n using landscape view n nothing! Help lol

CW_Mac Jun 05 '13

Since this week has already started, you have to view your team for the next week and set your roster that way. It's always been that way, but it just throws you off because of the new layout haha.

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

There's no direct cut button right now for mobile; it's something we're going to talk about in meetings to possibly add in some form or fashion so you can do so without making a claim at the same time. No timetable on it, but we do realize its importance.

billybgame Jun 05 '13

I'm learning the new look and it seems ok, after initial confusion....only thing I have issue with is the color or shading, or what have you(I'm now web designer, so keep that in mind). All I know is it's hard to discern some things, as the contrasts don't seem enough. Like here, right now, the text is light, the box is light.....On the Players page, I noticed the % owned is very hard to see/read. There were other instances of this.

So, hopefully, you guys at Flea are still tweaking these colors and fonts, to make things stand out and be more visible.

billybgame Jun 05 '13

For another instance, right here...."Add a reply" is very hard to see.

Gridiron-IQ Jun 05 '13

I dont like how the new messages on the message boards arent highlighted anymore...you have to look through every message to find the new posts...other then that, im starting to like it just fine...

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

Maybe this has been mentioned but when looking at a rbs game stats for the year, i have no stats for receiving.. Kind of a big bit of missing info

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

Also agree new msgs not being highlighted blows,

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

Wow, cant cut a player on mobile??? Just wow.. Thats a big error guys.. Next time you want to release a new interface, have everything working first

Pee-Dee Jun 05 '13

I do miss the message tree. I wish new posts on old topics would float that topic to the top. I wish you could view first posts and then expand to see comments or replies... Like facebook, g+... Every other functional message board. Commisoner stick comment is stil a big request.

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

On.player stats on my phone when i try to change year it just shows same year

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

Please e-mail any bugs or suggestions to fleaflicker.com -- it makes it easier for us to track

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

@lukeb5301 -- It's working correctly. The top selectors (you may have to click the + on top to expand in mobile) will show you the stats and the blue selectors will show that specific week's stats or whatever category you choose -- so whatever is in blue, the players will stay. The top selector will show how they performed in that given year you select. So if you're sorting by season in 2009 on top, and the blue selector is sorting by Week 6 in 2012 -- you will still see Julio Jones on top even though he didn't play in 2009 -- his stats will just be empty.

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

This is also how our functionality has always worked.

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

Odd first i see no +.. Second I'm on cj spiller, i see no receiving stats, no +, i click to change to 2011, address bar changes to 2011, site still shows 2012 stats and 2012 in drop down..

Droid RAZR google chrome

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

I see the + on my team page, nothing under individual stats, which is what I'm referring to

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 05 '13

Again, these are very, very helpful, and I'd hate for them to get lost in this long thread. Please direct any of these awesome suggestions to fleaflicker.com -- they are a big help to us.

I see what you're talking about now. You are on the individual player page not the Players page. It is a bug, we'll get it fixed.

Thanks again and remember to e-mail us.

lukeb5301 Jun 05 '13

Will do.. P.S. I'm on laptop now and everything looks great, I understand new layouts take time, it looks good. Just so far mobile verison blows which is 99% of my site usuage.. hopefully it all works out

electricnomad Jun 09 '13

The new interface looks great on my computer.

However, on a Blackberry it doesn't seem to work well. In addition to what has been mentioned above, it is extremely difficult to navigate because there is a lot of dead space on the screen, and therefore scrolling down takes an impossibly long time.

CW_Mac Jun 09 '13

^ The issue isn't the website...it's the fact that you're using anything other than a Droid haha.

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 09 '13

@electronicnomad - We will likely be giving users any day (such as yours on the BlackBerry) the option to see the site in our new desktop view as well -- you can expand to full site. Our mobile design is still in flux as we continue to collect feedback from you guys from here, the Suggestions page and through e-mail (the best way to reach us personally at fleaflicker.com).

GoRdoN_410 Jun 09 '13

The thing I loved most about this site was how easy everything was. Now there's a ton of drop boxes, everything's all cramped up and it doesn't have a good feel to it at all. I know it takes awhile to get used to new layouts and all but this new look is pretty much unbearable. I wish there was an option to go back to classic view. My leagues thinking of finding another website if it doesn't improve. :(

This version is just as bad as espn or nfl.com's. I miss everything being so easy to navigate through. Disappointed.

Gridiron-IQ Jun 09 '13

You people are so simple....everything is basically the same as it was before....if its so awful and your so disappointed there are plenty of other free sites you can join out there...piss off

FFCSR_Hal Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 09 '13

@gordon - thanks for the input; let us know what you need help finding and more importantly what you find tough to find so we can think about accentuating it for you. everything is still there and we are happy to hear your suggestions. thanks for your loyalty.

michiganct Jun 10 '13

um. not being able to cut a player is what I would consider a HUGE deal.

FleaMod Fleaflicker Admin  Jun 10 '13

Solely cutting a player without any other moves is supported under our new desktop view like always. Within the next few days, we hope to roll out an option for users to select the desktop view on their mobile devices and this will solve that issue for you guys. Thanks and let us know if you have any other suggestions. It will be fixed.
