Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

nothing bad will happen don't worry, is just that now is going to be on the retired players forum, not on the Russian Roulette as always.
This is like a punch on the face that reminds you that Lena is a retired player

As an Elena fan, i understand your sorrow very well. Hopefully her part of the forum is still strong as ever over there in the retired players forum.

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Not to be whiny but now I have to navigate through TF much more It was always nice to drop by Russian Roulette and visit Maria's forum as well.

This sucks. We had a one post for every 24 hour minimum rule for a reason.

OMG, I can't believe you guys......

You mean you don't have this thread in your browser's favorites?
Just add this URL, Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8. It gets you to the first page, but below the top 'post reply' button you'll see a button/link marked 'View first unread'

It doesn't matter where on this board the thread located

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Well seeing as no one else really gives a crap, I will not waste anymore breath arguing with the mods.

One of the reasons I work for myself is so I dont have jumped up assholes telling me what I can and cant do, but, seems here the Forum is run by them, it was doing no harm where it was and just because it was popular it upset some idiots and the morons "looking after" the site, ie, having feelings of power where in fact they have none whatsoever over the real world.

Too many mods in this forum, there is no need for them all.

Anyways, as I said, no one else is bothered so why should I be, let them do what they want.

Put this thread in faves and you can then bypass the rest of the bollocks that make up this site.

It simply now feels the thread is now been dumped in the forum equivelent of Florida.

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Guys, I fought the good fight, but the fact is that it's actually both a tribute to how dedicated we are and a fluke of the way RR is constructed that we were able to keep Lena's Fan Club in RR for as long as we did. The fact is that by the rules of the forum and to avoid future headaches it was time to move it. (I'm not saying I agreed with the decision, but that's how it was presented to me).

So we should all take a little pride in how much Lena love we showed over the last 1.5 years.

And if one or two extra mouse clicks is too much to keep up with Lena and watch her TV show, well...Andrea is chipmunky cute (I hear) and has an active forum.

Meanwhile, Iva, please be aware that Chloe is dark and evil and her blood would not be at all good for bathing in.

There, professor. I know it's just the roles she plays in her dances, but I don't want Iva to kill her or any of the other Dance Moms girls.

Re: Elena Dementieva Fans Club Vol 8

Rules rules rules, all bollocks, there is no headaches.
This is a piddling tennis forum not a world government, but thanks for trying anyways.

The poxy mods don't even bother to reply half the time.

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."

Yep - this is what I do
The thing is, Lena gets so much more love from TF than most active players, so she should get to stay in Russian Roulette. I'm sad.

Which thread, I already asked you to point them out to me and I would move them.

BTW - Do you really think insulting all the mods is the way to handle this? You didn't get your way so you start throwing insults, does that make you feel better in the end? The thread wasn't closed, it was just moved to her own sub-forum, which is what player sub-forums are for. Why should the fans of players that don't have a sub forum have to dig through all the cheering threads of players that do have their own sub forum on the main page of RR? The whole point of having of sub-forum is that the fans of a player can have all of their threads located in one place, and at the same time not litter the main pages of a country sub-forum with threads, leaving no room for the less popular players. The problem was brought to my attention, it was discussed with the mod team, and we fixed the problem. For some reason having to go to your own favorites sub forum is causing you such distress and hardship that you think it is now ok to start insulting the team that keeps this place running.

Lena V still has a thread in RR's main section, although she has her own subforum. This thread hasn't been used in a while (last post Jan 6th) so it moved to page 2, but it was quite active and on the first page..
