Live Scoring Threads = Banned

I know everyone loves them...but if they are going to slow the board down then they should be banned or post should be limited to scorers only.

Today, being nice I used my cell phone to call and get real time scores only to have great difficulty in posting...whats the point. It was a total waste of my time and cell minutes.

What does everyone one think...I mean whats the point of "live scores" if ur not going to see the score until 5 mins later

It´s not just the live score threads that are slowing the board down... somehow it seems to be friggin´ slow since its re-launch , with or without such threads.

Instead of banning live scoring threads, I think we should maybe designate one person to do the scoring. That will limit the number of posts of what the score is.

And maybe, there should be an update every 10 minutes, so people don't keep refreshing the board.

Just some ideas.

Plus, if the chatroom was up, that would be better.

I hate scoring threads too, but it's the only way to get scores most fo the time.

I understand your point, but if takes so long to load then the people who are posting the scores become frustrated

Keep it going
Yea, but sometimes a lot of websites show the scores, or during the Grand Slams when everyone has broadcasting and the Live Scores threads are still full of people, who seem to be just enjoying to read the scores even though they are watching it live!

Most people will not agree to let one person be the scorer, nor will they agree not to hit reload fifty times, thats why the Chat room is the best option. Live scoring is also unfair to other members who are on other parts of the board, because they too are affected by the slowness

THe only way to do it is to limit thsat thread to OONE person, the person acualy doing the scoring. NO CHEERING. It's not the posting of the scores that mkaes those threads a problem. It MULTIPLE posting of the same score, and lots of 'GO my fave!'

If we could limit it to one person posting scores, with no cheering, we'd be okay.

here's a WACKY AND CRAZY IDEA

how 'bout we not have a million and one people write useless messages like GO KIM GO AI GO FUCKINGWHOEVER a billion times in every single scoring thread. JUST POST THE SCORE ONLY. IF YOU'RE NOT POSTING THE SCORE, DON'T POST. UNLESS OF COURSE YOU'RE GOING TO GO ON A PROFANE BINGE LIKE EARTHCRYSTAL WHEN HER FAVORITE PLAYER LOSES. oh wait, sorry, don't do that last one either.

anyway, if everybody stops being a moron, things should run more smoothly. i know it's a pipe dream, but can't we all just try and make it work?

This has to be the 800th time or so that all the obvious factors have been pointed out, and this will be the 800th time that it doesn't make a licking difference.

I imagine the refreshing every 30 seconds thing slows down the board a lot and it's impossible to stop that because people won't stop refreshing and if we only got updates every 10 minutes that wouldn't be live scoring and people would complain... the chat room seems to be the only solution!

By the way, ATPWorld was slowed down to a ridiculous pace today, and has now been "shut down for maintanence, that will only last a few minutes" for the past hour or so. Does anybody know if the two are related?
