a proposal to solve the live scoring problem

i don't know if this is feasable, but just like wtaworld created atpworld, maybe it could create a board just for live scores and then ban live scores on this board. it's just a thought

We just need to assign someone to do the scores on a regular html page that automatically refreshes. We could still discuss the results on the board, but we would not have the problem of people refreshing the board every 5 seconds.

Or create a java applet that can be launched from wtaworld.com in a new small window that will autmatically refresh when there is a new score.

This is kind of what we plan on doing. We will provide a private website area for a scorer to post live scores and you'll all have access to it from WTAworld. The question is will be people be bothered to post a message and ask for access to the live scoring auditorium?

Yes, but the Grand Slams have constant scoring updates on the site... but people still posted scores here, and constant "GO BLAH!" posts.

Sad but true. I wonder if there's anything we can do to remove the temptation to post live scoring threads.
