NOTE: I'm just trying to make yours and my experience better for this season ... I do like CBS ... and I also see shortcomings and am not at all opposed to changing.  I like Onroto based on my experience with it via Doubt Wars.

Wouldn't some human beings have to be involved in order to use their own software? Try getting a response from a real person at CBS when you have a problem. On the other hand, the helpful folks at OnRoto rarely take more than a couple of hours to respond.

Lynchmob, I got only one email about Oracles moves this week, and every week. An email about one pickup, ignoring any others.

WHich is fine, I guess, since I can work around that, but why should I have to? Why not send out one email to the whole league with all the pickups?

Why lay out the transaction page so that it is so difficult to read?

Why jumble in the list of your current bids with all your past bids on the FAABing page?

Why not list the contract status of players on the Trading Proposal trade? Or on the roster pages?

All of this can be managed, can be gotten around, but begs the question: What are they thinking? Doesn't anyone there use their own software? Because if they did they would immediately say, hey, this could be better!

My distaste for the CBS site is well-established.  It just seems like everything with CBS is just a bit harder and more unclear than you would want it to be.  We are much happier since our move to Onroto.

What's not right about that move?

I think CBS sends out 1 email per transaction ... that's what I get/see in my inbox.

So I too got the email you copy/paste'd below ... and another email with the same info about your other move.

I really don't want to continue hating on CBS, but they sent me a report after transactions ran that we won only one guy. Godley. I'm not complaining. He's Godley. 

This is the report on our moves:

Original Oracles

Added:

Zack Godley SP | ARI 

Dropped:

Michael Reed CF | MIL


Winning Bid: $5


But that turns out not to be right. CBS reports insist on not giving you any of the information you would prefer to have if you had a choice.

And this information is available at many other stat sites who operate without this obduracy.

Except for the info only CBS has, which is that you won some subs.

I'm sure they get some part of the process right, but for me they miss huge chunks. Their best thing is that they allow you to download data. 

It's not enough.
