Livestream thread

James said he would make it sticky, but it would be closed. I will post all the links in the first post, (I will try to find as many as I can and people can PM more to me) and if I'm ever unavailable or you wanna chat, there's always the livescore threads in the tourney forums. I thought it seemed like a good idea, but I wanted people's opinions before doing it, I will be taking votes for 1 day then decide

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Like I predicted from the start, that thread became far too clustered with a bunch of people discussing the matches instead of the livestreams. I proposed to have a thread each week which would certainly cut out a lot of the excess posts but this idea is a good one too.

Re: Livestream thread

Good idea. I go in that thread just to look for the links but often there's to much clutter to find one. I think this idea would work

Re: Livestream thread

Posting all the links in the 1st post seems like a good idea. Problem is there will soon be so many links and posters will look at this 1st post and not know which links work for which current tournaments. Therefore I would suggest highlighting in red those links which are currently useful for the present weeks tournaments and perhaps make a note for which tournament this like is effective for on occasions when there are more than one tournament during that specific week.

Yeah that would work too.

The thing we don't want is a massive thread where one has to hunt through millions of posts to find the right livestream link.

A weekly livestream links for the week of XX/XX/XX thread would work nicely.

No, I will edit the first post every time new info comes in, and if for some reason I can't you can chat in the tourney livescore threads

Re: Livestream thread

I think keeping it in the tournament forum is a better idea. If you are looking for something specific it is very difficult to find... one tournament may have multiple streams (usually not the one you want ), with many tournaments in a given week there is a lot of posts. Maintaining the 1st post will be challenging as well unless you don't work or go to school.... just my 2 cents

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!
-Andre
P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

Yes, I will say the name of the tournament followed by the links.

The thing is, the other thread was created cause there were so many weekly threads. This way, there is just one that changes with the weekly info

It will be difficult to maintain, I just figured we can still do the chatting in the tourney forum, but there is a sticky thread here too for easy references usually. If I get the links once they usually don't change till the next tourney and I can update once a day I'm sure
