Official player forum request thread
In this thread you can request new player forums. You will need to gather sufficient support to get a request granted, so just making a request does not suffice. The ultimate decision will still be with the staff.
You can also use this thread to voice your support for a request that was made.
Current requests can be found in post 6 of this thread.
Just to offer some clarification on forum creation:
1. We look at forum requests approximately every three months.
2. We look at poster activity in a particular player's main thread, particularly over the last three month period as an indicator of interest.
That means not just the number of posts but also who posted and how often etc.
3. There is no limit to the number of forums that can be created at a particular time but, in the interests of efficiency, we look at the forums with the most poster requests in this thread first.
Hence it is in posters' interests to limit the number of requests they make to the forums they want the most in the first instance - otherwise they risk forums that they care less about being created before the ones they really want.
Please note that you may also withdraw your request for a particular forum at any time if you have lost interest in it.
4. Other factors that are considered include the likelihood that a particular player will have the same level of interest in the future as they do at a particular moment in time.
For example, if an unknown player has a big win, she may generate a load of impulse requests but, if she thereafter has poor form, interest in her may dry up rapidly and creating a forum for her would be a waste of space.
Decisions may be delayed a further three months to reassess such cases.
5. Inactive forums will still be removed on a regular basis.
The next review of player forum requests will take place after Wimbledon 2010
