Sleeper.. WE WANT ROOKIE PHOTOS
By - sjandrew1
Last year it was September 5th
I want Sleeper to troll everyone by announcing they have rookie photos but then everyone's photo is just Marlon Mack
Damn, there be some thirsty managers out here in the streets.
I didn’t just draft these guys bc of their dynasty value👀
I NEED ROOKIE PHOTOS SO I CAN DO MYSELF WHILE LOOKING AT TERRACE MARSHALL JR
Rosterbating aint the same with blank avatars
I didn’t only draft Zach Wilson to play QB. Give me that pic!
They’ve already stated publicly that there’s been a holdup from their data source. It’ll update once they get the data. Until then, it’s out of their control.
I am more concerned that the lack of photos is going to be indicative of issues/delays with the live stats feed during the season, if it is the same data provider.
Yeah what kind of NFL data provider can’t get pics updated in 4 months time
So relieved I'm not the only person annoyed by this lmao
I want to enter my league history!!!!!!
Mods...... WE WANT LESS POSTS ABOUT SLEEPER'S ROOKIE PHOTOS. At least one day seems excessive.
It’s what the people want!
Do we though?
THEYRE UP NOW!
It only took one post😎
Way to go champ
yall some weird mfs man. how do the pictures have anything to do with fantasy.
Ever jerked it to porn?
I used to jerk off to squiggly lines on my TV while hearing some random chick get railed, people can relax on rookie pictures.
You should understand their struggle then
When all of the rookies I have feature the same bland-ass default picture I have to stop and read the names. It's just better and less confusing.
It's 2021 as well. This isn't a note-book paper only fantasy world. Give me the photo. Fuck it, make it a GIF. Why not?
sleeper already said it on the suppliers end. there is nothing that sleeper or anyone on this sub can do about it. pull out your coloring books and pass your time like that. idk how many times people got to post the same damn thread about some pixels.
I'm not complaining about how long it's taking, I'm answering how it pertains to Fantasy.
Relax man :)
fair enough, my b.
WHO GIVES A FUCK
Man, I don't miss Sleeper.
Thank god somebody finally said it! I don’t think they realized there were no rookie photos, should be added by tonight now
Fantasy-nfl doesnt have them either. Maybe they are linked together.
Yeah, I need pictures so I know if want to draft them or not. Get your act together, Sleeper.
Same with Fantrax.
And the conmplaining about sleeper begins
well it worked, so
You got em
Week away from next season and we still don't have the same website functionality as the app that was promised to be done before this next season. They already released their website update so...don't see it happening at this point. Guess we're gonna have another season of no trade block viewing, no adding to the trade block, no news sidebar (only showing player updates for your rostered players, highly useful), and no best ball at all on the website. WTF.
Imo your expectations for a new to market app that’s not backed by a billion dollar corporation, is free, and doesn’t show ads, are kinda wack. You honestly think they’ll just stop feature development when the season starts? Chill out lmfao
New to market? What? It came out as beta in 2017. Its been the #1 fantasy app for reddit and all my IRL friends for the past 2 years. That's not new and were not talking a small market app here either. Is it too much to ask to deal with my fantasy players on a website where I can see everything big and clearly and not have to keep going to my tiny phone screen and switch back and forth to do everything???
We're not talking new features here. We're talking the same features that already exist on the app, and not only that but they aren't tiny features on the side. Were talking the entire trading block. Were talking an ENTIRE format in best ball. Like come on.
1. They've **scaled** since 2017. They probably started with \~2-3 developers and only recently have I even seen any indication that they have close to 10 engineers. As far as I can tell they've only pulled in \~20m in funding which is not all that much money when a team of 10 engineers alone will cost probably 2m/yr, they also have marketing/design teams that take up a huge Chunk of that. Given their lack of monetization they also need to maintain a runway to ensure job security for their employees.
2. It's been the #1 fantasy app among the community as of LAST year, they're moving into the SECOND year of that level of adaptation, you can't seriously be counting this upcoming year.
3. It's not too much to give feedback or ask for new features, your demeanor is just that of a spoiled child who didn't get what they wanted and now the whole world is ending. You said the following with no actual evidence that they won't make these changes.
>They already released their website update so...don't see it happening at this point. Guess we're gonna have another season of no trade block viewing, no adding to the trade block, no news sidebar (only showing player updates for your rostered players, highly useful), and no best ball at all on the website. WTF.
They built a backend API that can work for both the mobile app as well as a desktop site. They could have chosen to push off a lot of these features until they had been designed/built on both platform frontends but probably just wanted to make them available for use on ONE (mobile is obviously going to be more adaptable in 2021) to get the release out faster then update their desktop site after.
You just have no idea what you're talking about. Confused people tend to get irrationally frustrated, which is what I think is happening here.
