In the last few weeks, myself and a few other regular members of this forum have noticed a rapid decline in the standard of posts on this forum. This has been attributed to a growing dependance on off topic conversation.

It should be reminded that this forum, first and foremost, is a tennis forum, and tennis should be the main focus of conversation here. For off topic posts, there is already a large off topic thread. Me and others do not feel it is necessary to have more than one off topic thread, and believe it would be in the best interests of the forum readers to delete these excess off topic threads. This ensures tennis is the main form of discussion, while still allowing for off topic chit-chat if needs be.

All of these changes would be in the best interest of allowing Maria fans to discuss her most important attribute- her tennis ability.

Thank you for reading.

I with you on this Eddy :yeah:
Quite a few long time fans/members now avoid Maria's own forum because of the lack of intelligent conversation and information :(
This shouldnt be the case and it'd be nice to see them back in here much more regularly, I think cleaning the place up and making it a little more orderly will make a big difference.
I think the 1st thread to go will be the forum renaming one, which ill do when I get on tomorrow ;)

Eddy is right. A fair few threads start on tennis topic and turn into absolute cack. I get the feeling a few posters don't really come to talk about tennis.

A few threads i would like to see go are:
Forum renaming
Limerick thread (though i've never been in there)
Dissapointment
Maria Madness
Maria's weight
cheer up masha in different languages
conversation thread :p
Would you like to see Masha together with Mario Ancic?

To name a few from the first page. Just my opinions.

I agree with all of them except Conversation Thread. I never wanted to make it in the first place but me and Frank were made to due to complaints from members of the off topic thread.

hahah, i found this really ironic - You complain about "off topic posts" in, and i quote " first and foremost, a tennis forum, and tennis should be the main focus of conversation here" thus making this, an off topic post.:)

I disagree with you, does it really matter what people talk about? If you dont want to be a part of, or dont agree with it, its simple - dont make posts in reference to it. Let the people talk about things they find interesting in relationship to Maria Sharapova, or whatever topic it may be. You stick to topics you want to be a part of, and people will stick to topics they want to be a part of...it is, after all, a public forum.

no doubt ill get a bad rep for this - seems to happen alot when i express my opinions that people disagree with.

Its a tennis forum. Part of WTAworld. And there is already an Off Topic thread.

If people want to be off topic as a community, they should go to the appropriately titled "Non-Tennis" forum.

Besides, you're a nOOb. You haven't been around for over a year like some some members have. You weren't around when most of the talk in this forum was good, tennis-orientated conversation, not off-topic bullshit.

I plead guilty to being a noob. I hate it when people are referred to as noobs, so I am sorry for, well, being a noob. It's not my fault, I can't help it but I am still a noob. :(

however, I hope you won't mind if I express my opinion:)

This is a thread for discussion of tennis so that should be the most important thing in here. However, if there are no alternatives to the off topic thread, people will log on at different times of the day, meaning there will be too many different conversations going on at once.

I agree with your idea in principle, but
wouldn't it be possible to have two folders for maria fans, though I'm not sure how this would work, someone on wtaworld must be able to do something along these lines.

one folder would be strictly for tennis discussion, wit the agreement that if you post non tennis stuff in here, you get bad repped. by everybody.

one folder for non tennis stuff, where anyone can post anything. this would probably end up like this forum is now.


Is this kind of idea possible, cos i think it would be better than limiting maria fans to use the off topic thread as the only thread for non tennis stuff.

Have you looked in "Non-Tennis" on the main menu? There are plenty of threads there with nothing to do with tennis.

Anything to do with Maria, well not anything, but it doesnt have to be all tennis as such. Her off court going ons like TV shows, i'd still love to see.

Feb 19th, 2005, 08:18 PM
I don't agree with deleting off-topic threads like the music thread. Naturally, this is a tennis forum, but does that mean we can't have off-topic discussions here? Sure, you could say all off-topic discussion should be held in "The Off-Topic Thread", but that's an utopia. New people will join the board and start posting new off-topic threads.

The problem here is not the large amount of off-topic threads I think, but the lack of threads with a topic this messageboard is all about: tennis. The presence of off-topic threads does not mean tennis threads cannot exist. It's easy to ignore off-topic threads, searching for threads about tennis won't take that much time.

So my advice would be, if you think this forum doesn't have enough serious threads, why not create them, and ignore the off-topic threads? Or even better, create serious threads, and still keep posting in off-topic threads, for much needed amusement and fun. :)

there's other people besides yourself who are valid members of WTAworld.....

they also have opinions


yeah, some people have been around longer than others, and I'm sorry if things have changed + you don't like it this way, but this post stinks of arrogance.

In your very first post, you put the 'decline in the standard of posts' down to a 'growing dependance on off topic conversation', what exactly do you mean by a 'growing dependance'?

I would bad rep you, but I just don't have it in my heart to do so.

I'm sure I do not have to reiterate to you what the words "growing" and "dependant" mean. Then, put the words together. If you can't work that out, go and buy a dictionary.

If you call me arrogant, you call several important members of the forum arrogant. They too are pissed off with the endless off topic bullshit that infests this forum like a virus. You seem to have deluded yourself with the belief that this is a one man crusade on my part. Fuck no.

Bad rep me and see if I give a fuck.

I was serious about this thread. But apparently, people enjoy talking about anything and everything, no matter how crappy and worthless it is.

Oh well, we all have our strong points and weak points. This entire board would be quite boring if we would be agreeing with eachother all the time. :p

But seriously...just creating new threads about tennis is much more useful than having endless discussions. You can't stop anyone from creating nonsense threads, so why bother about it? Just ignore the crap and when people who create nonsense threads see nobody posts in them they will soon enough stop with that.

And also...Some of the off-topic crap is just damn enjoyable. :p

Heed this warning. Its very important.
GL is grouchy.
Because she does not have a throne.
She feels she deserves one.
Because she posts 20000 posts of nonsense.
And bad reps people randomly.
Goldenlox is random. And grouchy.

If there was a moderator here, all non-tennis threads could be deleted. And you could put them in non-tennis - which means outside this forum, and RR.

We asked to have a moderator long ago. I know for a fact a moderator would be great for a forum as busy as this.

But, for reasons still unexplained, the admins decided a moderator was unnecessary. "Use the report post button" was their argument. Despite the fact nearly all player forums have a moderator. Some even have two.

So, we have threads like this. All because the admin decided the "report post" button was as effective as having a moderator.

Oh well, we all have our strong points and weak points. This entire board would be quite boring if we would be agreeing with eachother all the time. :p

But seriously...just creating new threads about tennis is much more useful than having endless discussions. You can't stop anyone from creating nonsense threads, so why bother about it? Just ignore the crap and when people who create nonsense threads see nobody posts in them they will soon enough stop with that.

And also...Some of the off-topic crap is just damn enjoyable. :p

I don't bother wading through the nonsense in here.
But this thread is about the nonsense in here.
So I feel I have a valid opinion in this thread.
And if you look at what Eddy posts in this forum, it's crap.
Just like most of the forum.
eddy i already said im not gonna bad rep you, the reason I don't agree with you is the fact that there are others who dissagree with you. I am not directly dissagreeing with you on this idea, I think some kind of happy medium needs to be found.

when you go and moan your head off at people who are merely stating their own opinions on the matter you have brought up, I think you are behaving pretty childishly. I have always respected you prettty highly among all the members in this forum, and I am just sad to see you can't accept that people may have the opposite view.

don't get mad at me for saying this, i'm not mad at you or any1 else!

but maybe you need to consider the fact that while yes, you are representing a large number of people, myself partially included I guess, there are others who may not agree with you, and these are the people most likely to post in this thread.

I think one way of deciding whether all off topic threads (other than the off topic thread should all go, is to have a poll.

What do u say?

I do not moan my head off. I made one post at the start of this thread, respectfully asking for a downsize in the number of unnecessary off topic posts.

yeah ed I'm sorry - I quoted wrong post there - i am just as anti the crap goldenlox came and posted as you are. apart from anything she suggested we get a mod then proceeded to tell us we do not need one, just to be argumentative :eek:

it's just the way you said 'fuck this forum' or something, it just didn't seem an appropriate response to a comment someone posted earlier.

but please lets forget this, I am actually with your side on this one, I would like to see the chat more orientated towards tennis. But we do need more than just the off topic + conversation threads with which to post off topic comments.


Getting a mod: I 100% agree with the person who suggested we all PM the wtaworld admin. If enough people do this, enough times, maybe we can change this.

Back on topic, this forum certainly needs a moderator. Someone who will keep the forum on topic with a certain tolerance towards moderate off topic chat. Someone who will remove trolls. Etc.

"It should be reminded that this forum, first and foremost, is a tennis forum, and tennis should be the main focus of conversation here. For off topic posts, there is already a large off topic thread. Me and others do not feel it is necessary to have more than one off topic thread, and believe it would be in the best interests of the forum readers to delete these excess off topic threads. This ensures tennis is the main form of discussion, while still allowing for off topic chit-chat if needs be."
oooooo the irony, i can feel it running all over my body, ooooo yeah it feels so good, ooo, i like it soooo much!

U sir Edward, are a hypocrite! BOOYEAH. Ah it feels so nice to just shove logic in somones face and watch them crash and burn in self pitty.

And just a note: The way you replied to Goldenlox comments was so belligerent it wasnt funny. AND also Edward, u calling me a "n00b", implying i am lesser, due to my number of quotes is technically discriminatory, thus resulting in you breaking the rules of the forum, and i quote:

"post any content that is hateful, offensive, or discriminatory with regard to race, sexual orientation, gender, age, occupation, religion, physical or mental disability, or any minority"

so go ahead, get a mod in here, see how long u last pretty boy.

I was actually thinking about this.

It would be good if there could be mods from 2 different parts of the world, so there is a mod around when another is sleeping and vice versa.

And it would reduce the workload on one mod if he has another mod to assist him. That was the CP's reasoning behind the second mod.

Greenout
Feb 23rd, 2005, 06:49 AM
I think two mods would be perfect. Good cop, bad cop.
It would help ease the pressure too, if everything was up to
only one moderator. And true, the different timezones make
it impossible for 1 person to be on diplomacy duty all the time.


I like and visit this forum many times. You have a great bunch

btw, I am sorry Eddy, I agree with anderson on this 1 - calling people nOObs is discriminatory, and I think you should really apologise.

Anderson, the way you said this:

It's a very long story actually :lol:
To make things short: we had one mod before, CP majority thought a second mod would help the first mod out cause CP was growing bigger, first mod refuses, arguments, fights, the mod went psycho on the CP, admins came in, poof ex mod was out... a poll was made to decide the new two mods... and it came out to be me and joegerardi :)

and thanks Frank :hug: everyone's been complimenting me on the new look, but it's only an added on heart :lol: :kiss:
Ah, that makes things clear...:confused: :p

Thanks for explaining. But apparently they don't assign new player forum mods anymore. So this all is quite useless. Seems like we'll have to stick to the report post button and nicely asking newbies not to flood too much. I personally don't think there is any problem with a couple of off-topic threads, but it seems like many threads are started nowadays that could have been posted in the off-topic thread as well.

Oh well...:)

And I guess a heart just has a good effect on people :p

U sir Edward, are a hypocrite! BOOYEAH. Ah it feels so nice to just shove logic in somones face and watch them crash and burn in self pitty.

And just a note: The way you replied to Goldenlox comments was so belligerent it wasnt funny. AND also Edward, u calling me a "n00b", implying i am lesser, due to my number of quotes is technically discriminatory, thus resulting in you breaking the rules of the forum, and i quote:

"post any content that is hateful, offensive, or discriminatory with regard to race, sexual orientation, gender, age, occupation, religion, physical or mental disability, or any minority"

so go ahead, get a mod in here, see how long u last pretty boy.Just look at the thread title.

Ignore her.

Trolldenlox is getting her panties in a twist because I will not remove her name from the title of this thread. She is worried Maria fans will visit the forum, and her "almighty" image will be tarnished by the thread title.

So now she is stomping and hissing until I change the thread title. But I will not change it. Its incredibly amusing signposting people to GL's retardedness, and watching her increasingly desperate attempts to make me change my mind. She proves nothing. She's an annoying bug I could swat anytime I wish.

Hopefully, if she continues, she will be eligible for banning, on the basis that stalking members is against the rules. Then, we can all party and celebrate together, as Russian Roulette is freed of her tedium.

But until then, ignore her.

Thats a fair argument. But I don't think having long, complicated discussions constitutes to being a tennis fan. People show their appreciation for tennis in different ways. Some, like yourself, like to talk in length about players and their careers. And thats fine. But some fans just like to tag along, and shout their encouragement to their favourite players. They do not have to give long, concise posts to demonstrate their support. Just a few words makes the difference. But does that make them less of a fan?

Despite your current vendetta against me, I still respect you and your opinions very much. I enjoy reading them, because your passion for tennis is obvious. I respect Leena for the same reason. The girl adores the game very much.

Of course, I would like to be more in depth with my analysis. But I still respect the posters around me for sticking around and shouting encouragement when they can. I believe that shows loyalty, and they should not be scolded upon for their lack of discussion.

I'm sure on this forum there are several posters who have much to talk about, but have never been able to. Myself included. Thats why I asked you on your cheering thread to contribute your views on this forum. As a kick start to other posters to encourage them to express their views more. You declined but I tried my best.

Thats all I want to say. You can continue insulting me if you wish. But please don't insult my fellow posters. They don't deserve it.

Maria has never played Moscow.
She hasn't been home since December.
She was ill twice this year, so badly she withdrew those weeks.

You, the cat and a few others belong to a group who enjoy discussions. You have a reputation for it. As a result, others withdraw a little, and are unwilling to add their own views. Especially as you are often unforgiving with those who express opinions that are not in agreement with your own.

It's possible that someone will keep bumping up a dumb thread.
That happens in GM, it happens in the RR cheering threads. Someone starts 'who's good looking', and they keep it on page 1.

Like I said, this forum is better off being dead, than 99% non-tennis.
If it's dead, you can still find articles and information. Plus pictures.
That's Sveta's forum. Information, without non-tennis chat.

helena just gave me a message that was interesting. She thinks non-tennis talk leads to more discussion, and people will leave if they can only talk tennis.

This thread and the original title has been misleading. Me and others do not want off topic discussion to die completely. I was just referring to obvious things, like not derailing the Australian Open thread with an avalanche of smilies that have absolutely nothing to do with the original thread title.

I came into this thread, because I care about the RR forums. You asked me to post in this forum a little while ago. But I knew there was no tennis talk going on. So I came in this thread, and I think my opinions are valid, to some degree, and you started with me by playing with the title. So ofcourse, I goofed on you. I think there's too much chat in this forum. It would be better to be dead, like some other forums, than be all non-tennis nonsense. That's been my opinion since July.

I started changing the thread title because you started the war commenting, to quote:
But dopes like you don't care about tennis.

I found that offensive, and in no way were you goofing or joking. You were being serious. And that was the reason behind the subsequent fighting and name change.

I started the thread by requesting an end to unneccessary chat. You then called me an idiot for starting a thread requesting an end to unneccesary chat. Now, you yourself comment that:

I think there's too much chat in this forum. It would be better to be dead, like some other forums, than be all non-tennis nonsense

So, now I am confused.

It wasn't exactly that.

I said if ppl see non tennis topic(and i was more talking bout crap ones) they'll continue these talk, if they only see tennis topic they'll talk bout tennis or leave.

*Or at least be more shy to post crap discutions...*

So if you want tennis discution back, delete the crap ones , delete each crap post and tennis will naturaly be the main subject of the masha forum.

I don't understand why you don't want a moderator.

The biggest complain is the excessive amount of unneccesary threads.

"Maria's Nose"
"Maria's Height"
"Maria's Weight"
"Maria's Email Address" (That was one from a long time ago).
And so on...

These threads all have no purpose.

Smaller complaints are the non-tennis posts that often spring up in tournament and other important on-topic threads.

I don't see the problem with too many threads. The regulars know where to go, and probably take a quick look at all of them.

Is that really what this thread is about? Too many threads?

I quote the 1st post of this thread for goldenlox :o


In the last few weeks, myself and a few other regular members of this forum have noticed a rapid decline in the standard of posts on this forum. This has been attributed to a growing dependance on off topic conversation.

It should be reminded that this forum, first and foremost, is a tennis forum, and tennis should be the main focus of conversation here. For off topic posts, there is already a large off topic thread. Me and others do not feel it is necessary to have more than one off topic thread, and believe it would be in the best interests of the forum readers to delete these excess off topic threads. This ensures tennis is the main form of discussion, while still allowing for off topic chit-chat if needs be.

All of these changes would be in the best interest of allowing Maria fans to discuss her most important attribute- her tennis ability.

Thank you for reading.

http://forum.hardware.fr/images/perso/atog.gif It didn't change anything of what I tell you. I was talking to you so I talk 'bout you. I'm not gonna talk 'bout the others in pm.

So...will we have less crap mess? Who's gonna delete them?Goldenlox? Is that her job?

I'm sure I do not have to reiterate to you what the words "growing" and "dependant" mean. Then, put the words together. If you can't work that out, go and buy a dictionary.

If you call me arrogant, you call several important members of the forum arrogant. They too are pissed off with the endless off topic bullshit that infests this forum like a virus. You seem to have deluded yourself with the belief that this is a one man crusade on my part. Fuck no.

Bad rep me and see if I give a fuck.This is the post that really got me into this thread.

The people who came into this thread after Wimbledon, did not want tennis discussions.
Even GM got crazy after Wimbledon.
Doc and others, went crazy talking about how great Maria is.
That was one major. Her total is still at one.

My english vocabulary is too poor , didn't know what word to use....My question is still understable I think. Now ppl are asking for tennis discution... or at least want to discuss 'bout that possibility:p . You're absolutly not doing anything for that. Just saying that nobody wants to talk bout tennis...you don't help.

That's because I've been here when I was the only person posting in here.
And Sprem-fan or cat would join in.
After Wimbledon, it's 8 months without tennis talk.
But Maria has played a lot of tennis.

How many tennis discussion do you actually see on this messageboard?

It's not just a problem here, this entire board lacks tennis discussion. If all non-tennis talk would be prohibited on this board, probably about 90% of the members here would never post here again.

So just learn to live with it, or find a board that actually has serious tennis discussion.

I said, I'm going to discuss every aspect of Maria's tennis in her cheering thread.
And I've been doing that.
Her schedule, what tournaments she skips, her development as a player, her results.
I've been doing that all along.
Sometimes others get angry at my opinions.
But I've been in the cheering thread. I watch what goes on in these forums.
Same with Sveta, Anastasia, Nadia, 2 Lenas, Vera, and Lina.

I don't want to repeat myself in each player's forum.

You don't need so much non-Maria chat. Frank and Edward can do all of that in Non-tennis. So could everyone else.

Before Wimby it seems that there was tennis discutions. If at this moment moderators had deleted crap stuff, this thread wouldn't have been created.
But no. So tennis talkers left...and crap discussion made come more ppl interesting on that... so more crap thread... and now here we are.
Some ppl want tennis talk back...I don't think it's a bad idea :p so I came and just say what in my mind was necessary for that.
Then Goldenlox says that she wanted tennis talk back too but is doing nothing for that...that's what I'm talking with her.

What can I do? It's guys who want to talk about hot chicks.
