This is ridiculous to say the least!
The Mona therad was bigger than both Robson and Watson thread, wasn't it?

There can't be any excuse to snub Mona. If TF was objective Mona would have gotten one certainly before Watson.

This lack of objectivity is evidence of Anglo Saxon bias (or favoritism of some other kind).

Disgusting bias.

Did TF invent a new rule for 2013 that only Anglo-Saxon players will be given "own player forums" however obscure they are relative to others?

I don't get Watson having her own section. Laura should have one, on the grounds that she's gotten more posts about her than every other member of the GB top 5 combined and visits to her threads make up more than half of the total thread views in the entire section (I counted) Watson? She's gotten less posts in her thread started in 2009 than Robson's that was started after the Olympics. Barthel sure as hell deserves a section based on activity and she's got a high enough ranking too, seeing as she's all of two places below Robson and isn't getting any fewer posts.

Me neither.

In any case we can all see that there is no objective basis for what TF did here. Watson cannot objectively be put ahead of Barthel on TF's priority list. There is no basis for that other than pure favoritism and bias.

Re: Player forum request thread

The only thing I can think of is that since they were making Robson's section anyway they added Heather's while they were there (because then they'd get complaints about Robson having a section while her higher ranked peer doesn't) and then forgot about Barthel, or figured they'd give her one later.

Please consider the following information before making your request:

- we don't base new player forums on votes alone.

- we won't create loads of player forums at a time, there's just no way, so there is absolutely no point in voting for loads of forums.

- we look at current thread activity and posters and such, so there's no point in voting for a forum you won't post in.
Then why Watson got her own forum and Barthel didn't?? You admins can't explain this. You will just keep ignoring us and act as if nothing happened. This was a clear injustice toward Mona and her fans.

Re: Player forum request thread

And all the talk about TF having a policy of removing sections of no-longer-relevant scrubs is also bullshit (Vania King, Oudin... etc still have player forums).

The only thing that can be deduced is that TF has some sort of internal bias towards a "favorite player" or "favorite country"

And they aren't active player forums either. Meh.

Kart is blowing smoke.

The awarding of Watson at the expense of Barthel just proved beyond reasonable doubt that the goons actually do NOT look at current thread activity at all.

It's obvious that they just hand out favors to their faves, which they are entitled to I suppose - so ultimately there's nothing we can do about it, Hisagi.

Barthel should definitely get one. 2 finals in 4 tournaments, come on guys.

They updated this after AO so it will take a few months for next one I think.
