Just a suggestion for live scoring. Especially with Roland Garros around the corner.
something similar to the chat room option but i think a number of posters can't use it.
how about a WTAWorld irc channel on a selected network [Dalnet, Quakenet, etc...]
* a couple of hundred posters can be in the channel [more than enuff room]
* there's no need for refreshing of pages [low/almost zero lag time]
as you can scroll up and down for anything you might have missed.
I guess some will like this idea and probably a lot more who won't...
Just a suggestion!

Seeing is Believing. Feeling is Deceiving. I could be anyone but your friend..
I'm going out, I'm going to drink myself to death
And in the crowd I see you with someone else
I brace myself 'cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse
Or how about what's going to happen: everybody will open threads, hit refresh 700 times, and make the board totally useless to everybody! But yes, I do like your idea better. Though I totally understand the need for scoring threads; it's not as if the ROland Garros site provides live scoring or anything!
anton, i understand what you mean, but er by refreshing every 5 secs will make the board slow, or even crash.. and then we would be without a board - so just follow the IBM boards and create a msn netmeeting with the ppl who wants to cheer or soemthing.
