Playoff reseeding

SOLVED

Playoff reseeding

Why are we unable to set playoff reseeding to Yes after the playoffs have already begun?  We made a mistake and did not know we had to change this setting.  Now our 1 seed is playing a 4 seed for the second round and the 2 seed is playing a 6 seed.

Can someone please help with this?

As stated in other threads once your league's playoffs have started the settings cannot be changed.

There's nothing flawed with the system.  Just stop and think!  The potential for abuse is huge if people can reseed after the playoffs have begun.  A commish could do it because he'd rather play a different team. 

 

This is user error, and I acknowledged it myelf about 5 years when Yahoo inserted a new setting and assisgned a default.  The default messed us up, but I missed it when I went through my settings (I import them every year, so I went through them quickly).  The last thing I would have done was expect Yahoo to step and let me change it.  It was on ME.

 

As for another platform, good luck finding one that will let you do this.  In fact, I'm surprised at what Yahoo does let us change.

It would be nice to have a moderator fix this issue for us.  I cannot believe how many people have asked for this to be resolved yet it still is not an option for commissioners to use.  It has been several hours without a response.  Clearly this is an issue for a lot of leagues.

The problem is not solved!  The system is clearly flawed!  We will move on to another platform next season.

It is flawed!  

 

All professional sports have the top seed playing the lowest seed yet Yahoo sets up a different default.  It makes zero sense and clearly I am not the only one who thinks this is a horrible setup.
