One idea for improving the Blast has been to create a unified chat thread. I am seriously considering the idea.
(For ideas on how to improve the blast in general please see Please read this thread Blasters-Help Needed. Why are we here?
I would like your opinions on this particular matter here.
Should the Blast have
A. One unified chat thread-closing down the 3 other threads.
B. Keep things the way they are.
Finally-if we have an official chat thread would anyone (Miranda, Galadriel ) like to be in charge of it?
Rollo - you do a marvelous job with this site. Thanks much!
Forgive my cluelessness with your particular question, but one unified chat thread, and closing down the other 3 threads. Do you mean closing down the 3 threads that appear at the top "Women's Tennis Results"; "Tournament Winners by Event"; and "Home of Tennis Greats", along with Thread Finder.
When I am looking for particular info or topics, I do like the ability to easily search.
Currently, there are a host of different threads, from 1923 results, to who the 4th best player of 1998 to Nancy Richey. Are you suggesting all those threads are combined into one? For me, I'd find that to be confusing.
(I stopped reading the posts on the Tennis.com site, with Pete Bodo's column. It's a long mish mash of comments, posted in real time. Many people reacting to the column, with discussions of on going matches, other current tennis topics, as well as lots of personal anecdotes flying by. I never got that kind of online tennis community. At least with BFTP, there are dedicated topics, and those who want to post/respond, or even argue points, are generally good about staying mostly on topic - and yes yours truly has certainly strayed from time to time.)
Whatever you decide to do, is what will happen. I do appreciate the site, and hope it continues. Thanks again.
