Sorry, but I'm kinda impatient. I saw this about 2 months ago... when will it open?

http://www.mariasharapova.com/

I think it'll open around the US Open. What do you guys think?

Maria Croft
Jul 12th, 2006, 08:08 AM
All I think is that it's about time and that it will probably be a boring site anyway, most official sites are.

But at least she finally has one.

As ive said to some ppl already I hope theres no forum on that website and if there is it is strictly run by capable people rather than left to turn to a large pile of crap, that is an embarassment to genuine fans, like some other forums regarding Maria have....especially if Masha might be reading it herself every now and then. :)

I hope there's no forum, the people making the site must know it's going to be vandalised. I hope it's like the Andy Roddick website as it is constantly updated...and I hope she has a blog!

I doubt even if there was a forum, Maria would read it, maybe they'd give her a selection of nice messages to read.

there is a message on mariaworld.net that says it will be shuting down so that the siteowners can help with the running of Maria's official site. the also said the official site will be opening this month!

yeh it will be opening this month hopfully for the us open! :) ill miss mariaworldnet though! :( aww well at least well have an official site! :) also i read in an article that maria will be doing everything on the site picking all the colours and backrounds excta so it certainly sounds promising! and i agree i hope there is no forum cause if there is it will probabaly be hit on a load of rubbish like maria is sxc and all that stuff!

Mariaworld.net is (for me at least) the best Maria site out there, the official site couldn't have found a better site to join forces with, that makes me believe that the official site could actually become something special.

There are too many official sites out there that are just a whole lot of good graphics and little else. They offer less than many well-designed, often-updated fan sites. So what's even the point of them?

Yeah but I expect it to be heavily moderated (in that hateful comments are romoved quickly) because of the haters floating around.

I do hope Maria has a lot of imput, like a weekly blog.

Has mariaworld.net (http://www.mariaworld.net/) shut down already? I get "Cannot find server" when I try to visit that site now (using Internet Explorer).

Yeah I reckon there will loads of interest, I think a lot of her fans would love to see Maria winning again for themselves.

It's not that often that you get to see Kirilenko play, I was surprised they televised her first round match.

My site is launching soon!



Hi everyone! I'm in NYC preparing for the U.S. Open and I wanted to let you know that my official site is launching this coming Monday, August 21st.

The site is going to have a lot of photos and videos you wouldn't be able to get anywhere else. We'll be keeping it up to date on all things going on in my life, both on and off the court. There's going to be a message board for you to connect with each other and lots of cool features like my Top 1O lists, Official Store, Wallpapers, Stats and my personal Doodles (rants & raves).

Make sure you help spread the word about my new site and I look forward to seeing you on-line.

Thanks for your support!

What about it people? Are we all gonna migrate away from the hellhole that is WTAworld with its stupid vCash regulation system, insidious advertising, quasi-pornographic non-tennis section, psychopathic haters and hopelessly inept moderation? Not to mention endless downtime.

I'll join the forum for sure. If its properly moderated, it should be good.

The site will almost certainly have been created by an American company.

And as the USA is many hours behind most of us, we probably won't see it until a later time.

Edward.
Aug 21st, 2006, 09:05 PM
The problem is, I think she will actually visit the forum. She said she was keeping a very close eye on the site and will be adding her own stuff to it. I'm sure she will visit the forum every now and then.

She'll probably be horrified to discover most of the regulars know nothing about tennis, and think a smash is a kung fu move, and a volley is an extravagent football shot.

Well he is a Brit and she did say she thinks their accent is exact, so it adds up... Not a fan of Maria's taste myself! :p

The site had GREAT timing... It opened just after Ana/Martina finished so as soon as I got excited about the result I got to be happy and excited about the site too... Unfortunately it was almost 6am so I didn't have a goooood look around but I saw the essentials and joined...
Site is lookin spunky but it kinda of lacks a sense of "intimacy", for lack of a better way, between Masha and her fans... I think its just coz I am use to Ana's site but Maria's is certainly better then most official sites so she should be proud! ;)

The site had problems in Opera, but displays perfectly for me in Internet Explorer.
the site displays perfectly but since the forum uses hitbox.com to gather information I guess because its on my restricted sites and is refusing to allow cookies it won't let me in,I think I may just skip the forum as I can see the main site ok.
there is a option to opt out of cookies for hitbox and websitestory here I might try.

Cheers All! Donno am I the only, but I can't register, I click to the submit button and nothing happens. I installed some of flash players,but still nothing works. :(,just show a text over the submit button it sounds "ChatAlias already exists"- what's this? Can someone help me? What can I do?

"ChatAlias already exists" means that your username is already used, you have to choose another one :)

Wasn't sure that this was a GM kind of thing to mention but.. I was just curious as to whether she'd also registered www.mariasharapova.ru and, well, it's a porn site. :lol:

(Hope you don't mind a non-Maria fan in here briefly, I'm not a hater, I promise!)

I tried to register for the site, but the white text I typed just greyed out when I clicked "SUBMIT", and nothing happened. Has anyone else had - or better yet, solved - this problem?

I am using Internet Explorer 6 with very conservative security-settings for sites in the Internet zone. I have added *.mariasharapova.com, *.macromedia.com and websidestory.com to Trusted sites - is there anything else I need to trust?

Unfortunately the site needs Flash 7 to make it work! Bad design. :mad:

I access the net from an Education system that doesn't use Flash 7 and probably won't get it for a while.

Can someone post a direct url for the forums, since they may not require add-ons.... :wavey:

(and no, it's not the haters from here lol)I think it's a bit weird posting there knowing that Maria's team and (possibly) Maria is reading the messages. I feel like I have to be careful about what I say. I don't know why, but I do. And I would feel weird criticising Maria.

Does the forum work for everyone or is it just my computer?? Cause every time I click on the link it opens up a new window, but to the same page(the club sharapova page). Happening to anyone else or just me???

for some reasons it won't accept certain emails addys I think,best bet is to do what some of us have done re reg with new email/username and password.

Well tbh, I contribute to the general messages a fair bit (but most of the time the forum doesn't work for me) and my b'day thread is an important thread thank you! :angel:

I must say I have yet to post in any section (except once) that actually relates directly to Maria... For some reason I just don't feel like talking to those guys about Masha coz most are just "in love" with her... Except my darling little Miljana (*Chili*) but I've got her on msn now anyway... So yes my 70 something posts have nothing to do with Maria :o

Most of her fans don't know anything about tennis. But the very few ones that like her for tennis, are worth the world to her.

Like I said before I didn't post in the tennis section of it but the other day I went to see what it was like and its all just crap... I don't bother with the forum now, maybe once a week is good enough!

It seems the ones who do actually like her for the tennis and know about it, don't post there very often... All the ones I know don't at least!
