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!
but all your whining isn't gonna solve the problem (not to the thread starter, but to the others) I think it's a good idea and wondering if any admins are looking into this or something?
(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!! **Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
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.
