How Yahoo default waivers work

  • waivers clear tuesday morning
  • each player has a waiver priority, which is initialized to Inverse(Draft Order Position)
  • each waiver request includes [Player to Pick Up | Player To Drop]
  • if multiple managers request to pick up the same player the player goes to the manager with the highest priority
  • each time a waiver succeeds, the priority resets to 14 and all other managers move up (called 'rolling' priority list)

How waiver auctions work

Bot Traffic
View bot_traffic.md

First, most bot traffic doesn't use a browser, it just makes raw web requests to grab whatever content it is interested in. This means it does not request javascript or images, and as a result, most analytics packages use javascript or tiny fake images to track traffic/impressions. This is first & most obvious line of defense.

Second is something called a user agent, which identifies the source of traffic via a label. This is easy to fake -- I can make a bot request with a user agent that looks like an iphone safari browser, but much bot traffic doesn't bother.

Those two things catch ~all cases where bot is not trying to hide the fact that it is a bot. The alternative is surprisingly rare, at least in my experience. Beyond that you can do things like analyze user behavior to look for unusual patterns (e.g. hitting every article on a site exactly once) to get the rest.

Not perfect, but not something we worry about on a daily basis in the industry.
