View Full Version : Pointless removes of threads which belong to GM (into Players Forums)

Nov 12th, 2010, 02:33 PM
Yesterday on WTA official site homepage story of the day (it's still there today) is story about YouTube sensation Joe Penna, known online as MysteryGuitarMan, which is also known as the sixth most subscribed content creator of all time on YouTube. During last week in Bali he created a Sounds Of Tennis video with WTA players Li Na and Ana Ivanovic. TF member Julian opened on GM subforum Bali Sounds of Tennis (ft. Li Na & Ana Ivanovic) (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=423592) thread, which is shortly after moved from unknown reasons to Ana Ivanovic player subforum (after that moment nobody replay of course).

I know You don't have any decent answer on this questions, but still try:
- Why subject which is in off-season worthy homepage story (http://www.wtatour.com/page/OffCourtNews/Read/0,,12781~2216825,00.html) at official WTA website not deserve to have thread on TF's GM subforum???
- Why some TF moderators thinking that some WTA related content which in just first 24 hours have more than 200.000 views on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOupnLwjgQM&feature=player_embedded) is not enough attractive for TF attention (apart of Ana Ivanovic fan base)???
- If this thread really belong to players forums, why its moved to Ana Ivanovic players subforum, not to Na Li players subforum, which is equally involved in this and also has own subforum here???

BTW talking about GM threads connected to Ivanovic which is removed for no reasons here is example of Poll: Can ivanovic come back? (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=414660) Poll thread which opened some poster in July when that question is very interesting and intrigue for all tennis fans (she is out of shape and out of TOP50 in that time). This is not first or last Ana-thread moved for no reasons from GM, but in this case its not moved to Ana Ivanovic players subforum, but to Serbina Sensations general discussions subforum (originally reserved for less-known WTA/ITF players and juniors from Serbia) which make that action even more pointless and ridiculous.

You could try following the rules and PMing one of the GM mods to find out why it was moved.

8. If you have a question regarding one of your posts or threads being removed or deleted, the correct course of action is to contact a General Messages forum moderator via private message.

Do not start threads in the Bugs/Errors Reporting forum as they will be closed. The general messages forum moderators' remit is to manage this forum and they are the most qualified posters to answer your query or to direct you to someone that can.

So do not message every administrator / moderator on this site because you cannot be patient enough to wait for an answer. However, if your query is left unacknowledged (read: unacknowledged, not unanswered) for more than 24 hours, it is reasonable to ask another General Messages moderator to answer it as the person you have contacted may not be around for whatever reason.
