Yahoo Sports Safety Guide

Basics of the Sports community

  • People of all ages can read Yahoo Sports articles and submit comments. 
  • People aged 13 and older can take part in interactive Sports activities, including creating leagues and engaging in Fantasy Sports experiences.

You on Sports

Personalised team name: In certain sections of Yahoo Sports, there is a team name that you select and customise. It will be displayed in association with your activity.


What you should know

You can customise your team image/logo: Default logos and images not doing it for you? Personalise your team's logo by uploading a custom image. You can also use images or logos from Gravatar, if you like. As always, these should be suitable for viewing by a public audience.

Chat and features are available: Certain areas of Yahoo Sports offer chat functionality to engage with other players. In private leagues, you probably know the people you are playing with, but always be mindful not to share personal information and to be courteous towards other players.

Message boards: Certain areas of Yahoo Sports (such as Fantasy Sports) provide message boards to share your knowledge and expertise about a range of subjects, including being a commissioner and picking drafts. These are public forums, so be careful not to share personal information. If you post a topic or reply to a topic, you can view your posts by opening the My Posts tab on the message board view. Want to remove something you've posted? Simply click Remove next to your content to have it taken down from public view. Find out more about how to comment on Yahoo Sports News.

There's a mobile app: You can have access to Yahoo Sports wherever you need or want it. Take a look at an overview of the Yahoo Sports app and how to use its features.

If you use the Yahoo Sports app, alerts can also be enabled/adjusted to keep you on top of your activity.


Sports safety: Best practices

Report abuse: If you see something that concerns you on Yahoo Sports, such as in comments or in the leagues, use the Report abuse feature to bring it to our team's attention.

Keep your personal information private: Message boards, chat and commenting platforms provide a great way to interact with the community. However, be mindful not to share personal information in these forums. Whether public or private, as a best practice, protect information that is valuable to you by not sharing openly in these forums.
