Question How can we support/help WTAWorld.com?

When the board was down, the page they put up said they are on a tiny budget and can't upgrade their equipment so that things like this doesn't happen more often. I can't help but think that these downtimes are just going to get worse. This board is getting bigger and bigger by the day. Really what would most of people do without this tennis board. This is the best place for you chat, get results, start fights, gush about your favorites on the web, etc. I think the creators of this board are doing us a great service, and I am actually not sure why they do what they do. This must be quite a financial burden IMO. So what can we do? I suggest the creator of this board to start a donation box (via PayPal or something similar) or a mailing address for us to send checks/cash. I know the MK Forum (Michelle Kwan) can raise over $1000 in no time at all to help keep the message board and I don't see how this board could be any different. This board has a larger amount of active posters. Every little bit would help....



So what do you think we should do?

they raised 10000 dollars on wx and it's still down

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I'm not sure I'd care to help them until they get over their compulsion to delete threads/people for no particular reason. My 'empty' thread was a work of art, and took, ooh, minutes (fifteen of them!) to set up. I can't see there was anything in it to object to, since there was - literally - nothing in it.

I could give the Admin's a concrete way to secure a reliable revenue stream, but they've made it pretty clear in the past that they don't engage in dialogue (except among themselves) on "business stuff".

I once came up with a good idea which got rejected but I won't tell any of you what it was as I plan to set it up over the next couple of years for my own personal gain.

But what I will say is...

Why isn't there a sponsorship option, I'm sure there are loads of people on here who work for or maybe even have a say in businesses who need publicity on a global scale... WTAWorld aint a bad opportunity.

Well interesting, kinda sounds like they don't want help. Well whatever... I really don't see this board being up much longer. I mean what are they making on? Advertisments? Not from my visits, I use Ad Muncher....

World Crossing. It's a message board site.

The old CNN posters set up a message board there called world tennis.

There are also tennis board sites at Delphi Forums. Delphi gives you the opportunity to post for free or be a paying member (nominal fee) where you have more posting options.
