Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8
The basic problem is that for most other players, there is a subforum, and no separate fan club page. So, over in, let's say the US Player Forum, Venus retires and Alexa Glatch suddenly catches fire. So now you have people demanding a new Alexa Glatch subforum, and a bunch of Venus fans demanding that because she's so popular her subforum never gets retired. Now imagine that gets repeated and repeated. At a certain point, it just bogs down the whole site and the subforum starts crashing like GM does after a Serena match.
Again, most subforums don't have the duplicate structure of Russian Roulette. I argued that since RR was an exception we could just leave it that way, but the idea that it was setting a dangerous precedent and attracting complaints carried the day. TBH, those who made the final decision are very understanding of our position and actually admire the way we've kept this thread alive.
A lot of our rules (I've come to discover) actually due tie into issues with the site's architecture, legal things and regulations passed down from the owners that I suspect have to do with their ability to attract advertisers (e.g. no pornographic images).
We really do try to enforce the rules equitably, but we're like the cops. We do spot rulebreakers and deal with them on our own, but we also count on people reporting things. The next time you see somebody breaking the rules, don't just sit there and think "How in the name of Holy Lena is Max letting him/her get away with that?" Report the bastard.
Just my two cents having spent some time on "The Dark Side."
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
