IDEA - make a thread for each tournament to come...

where all the matches recorded from that tournament can be posted, and can be found easily. Then, like next year, we could find them archived and people wouldn't have to ask for someone to find a match, or re-upload one that is already in there somewhere. I think if every tournament had a thread it could be extremely organized and efficient, and a lot easier to navigate.

Thoughts?

I'm sure this isn't an original idea at all, and I'm also sure there's got to be a reason why that hasn't happened.

I personally think there should be a video thread in each of the tournament threads and people can link/upload away there.

That could work too, but they move a lot and stuff, I'm not sure if that would work. And how are you sure that isn't an original idea? Who cares, its an idea and I think it would make things a lot easier.

I am in the process of making a master spreadsheet set up in this exact format. If I cannot figure out an easy way to post this on here, I may use either a blog or a website to serve as an archive. As I progress along with it, I'll let you know of updates. Don't be fooled; this has already been a much larger task than I had previously anticipated (however, we do need such a thing)!

I only said it wasn't original because it's a pretty logical idea, yet we still have a fairly haphazard video vault. Like MCM said, it's kind of complicated to do, so I figured that's why nothing had happened yet. But yes, hpoefully that'll pull through.

I agree that there is more order needed in the video vault. If you search for a match its almost impossible to find it. Maybe we can post threads for each year (f.e. 2005 Matches, 2004 Matches) where we post all the links to matches there. For the new year we can make different threads per tournament (f.e. Sydney 2007 Matches, Australian Open 2007 Matches).
