Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

Ok this isn't anything against serena or her fans but she has a forum, so threads about serenas dogs, her adverts, serena jabs friend, her eating habits ect shouldn't these be in her player forum. it seriously cloggs up GM and stops any threads that might actualy have a tennis link to them, bar them having serena in them, get pushed down.

its starting to annoy me that many threads get moved about other players, yet we have threads about serena eating a hotdog in GM. im all for serena fans having chats and showing each other serena vids and stuff, but surely her forum is the place for this?

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

you expect a reply in less than half an hour?

i believe the procedure is to report the thread or threads in question, not start yet another thread to complain about it

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

I thought all those threads were moved already, and like Avid said, if you don't report them we won't find them. The mods don't sit in GM reloading the forum over and over waiting for something to do.

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

Looking into it more. The threads you are talking about have been moved already by one of the mods. All that remains in GM are the re-directs to where the thread has been moved to. This was taken care of yesterday at some point.

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

We are not here 24/7 and providing the so interesting threads in GM, noone can expect us to read every single one of them.

So indeed it is your responsibility to report them when you feel they're out of place. However it's not because you report a thread that the action you want taken will be.

In this case I moved a whole bunch of threads earlier today. There are still links in GM, but those should be temporary.

Uhm, I think there's a gap of more than 12 hrs between the thread-starter's first and second posts

Sorry, I got sidetracked because I went to see if Serena takes relish with her hotdog or not.

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

well part of my question is why the moderators don't seem to rule GM with a fair hand. its not a certain thread, although yesterday was just stupid, its how constantly stupid serena threads stay in gm and others get moved? i actualy had a post of mine deleted by a mod in a serena arrives at an airport thread, so mods obviously know these player forumesque threads constantly pop up in GM.

also i've never reported a whole thread before (didn't know you could) and i think mods saying they don't spend all their time in GM, i mean thats a lazy excuse, you only need look at a title like is serena bigger than bee to know it dosen't belong in GM.

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

My serenawilliamsforum.com thread awoke the snoozing mods.
But seriously, wasn't the last moderator selection to make sure that GM, for the most part, is policed almost all the time? THEY ARE NEVAR ONLINE WHEN I'M ON, EVAR!

When you report a post all the GM mods get an email, that's how I know I need to come and have a look at what is going on. Like I said we don't sit here all day, we have lives that we like to live, but if I'm online and something gets reported I get the email right away and come over to TF to see what is going on.

Maybe some of the mods/admins have themselves set to invisible anyways. You wouldn't know if they were on or not anyhow. I just recently switched myself back to visible as I had forgot that I had even had myself set to invisible in the first place.

Re: Question about the needless serena threads in GM?

^surely all mods should be set to visable so people can know which mods are online at which times, that makes sense to me?
