all TOPs in here but especially VALE

HI THERE!

WTASTARZ has given us a site in connection with out forum here. kinda like www.alexandrastevenson.com

if you want to check it out here are the links

http://www.lindsay-davenport.com
-OR-
http://davenport.wtastarz.com

however, there are some things to consider with.

for one, regarding vale's site. it hase been with us for a long time and this new site won't mean that we are disregarding her site.

vale, i hope you dont think of this as an offense towards you. its a way for all of us, the TOPs, to start expanding more.

another thing is, as the moderators pointed out, we could have the database we always wanted and the quotes and stuff.

another, the mods asked me to create a logo for out site as we dont have one yet. i would liek to ask the more artisitcally incliuned members for samples.

lastly, you guys could aslo place articles and stuff in there that would be in conenction with the whol wtastarz.com network.

i reiterate my point, i hope vale wont be offended. this is not to disregard her site. but to help all of our sites to grow more.

thanks.

POST YOUR COMMENTS ET AL BELOW

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Hey there everybody

I discussed this with jacs yesterday, given that i knew we had a site allocated for us but that nothing was being done with it.

Our biggest concern for the new site was becasue of Valeria's site and i hope she comes in and replies soon. We both agree that Valerias lindsay site is one of the best out there .

However, what we also realise is that if Jacs doesnt take on board this new site then wtastarz will find someone who will. A lindsay site as part of the wtastarz network is inevitable.

My personal view on this is that these are exciting times for all of us, and having our own website here is amazing, we now have the resources and applications available to us to make a lindsay and TOPs site in the way weve always envisaged. We can have our lindsay quotes pages, pictures galore, a top's database, and it is all linked to the top's player forum of this message board. There is just so much potential.

I think we should, all of us be embracing the opportunity given to us by the wtastarz network and utilising it to its full advantage.

Once again - id like to stress that this is nothing personal regarding Valeria or her site at all , and i really hope you see it that way sweetie Your site has served lindsay and lindsay fans extremely well and it will continue to do so, even if that is in conjunction with the new site

If theres anything you want to discuss about it vale, that you dont feel able to post publicly (or indeed anyone else for that matter) then feel free to pm either jacs or myself. i hope oyu dont mind that prez

How would you feel
If i was to kneel
Right down, at your feet
Right now?

I am in support, and echo the other comments about Valeria's site. We will support both! This is a great opportunity for the TOPS and having jacs in charge would be really good, much better than just some stranger who gets appointed.

i think the new site would be great and a chance for TOP to move forward and promote the word of lindsay.....i'd did an art course so i could attempt a logo but my computer skills are limited.....i dont have a scanner to post it and i havent got a clue how to do those type of things on computer....so it would mean me having to get out my pencil crayons :-)....

As some of you may or may not know, I'm doing a degree in graphic design so I could also have a go at designing a logo.

I love the idea of this website, you can be sure that I will be in full support of Vale's site and this new one! This is a great way also to get Vale's site know to others, surely we will be aloud to have links on the site to link people to Vale's site!?

kelly

its a grand idea, but were only allowed to pick two colours for the site - a light and a dark colour which contrast well.

There is however nothing stopping us having a stars and stripes. american theme with lindsay in the forefront as the logo.

There is always the option of having the wtastrrz team create a logo for us.

And i have no idea about this but if we gave them an idea that people liked f.e. the stars and stripes one, well they might accomodate that??? Like i say i dont really know but it owuld be worth a try, right????
