it says in the bugs and errors thread here that the ATP has forced the whole site to close down. I know pretty much everyone who posts in LLL posts here also, so what's the plan people? Lleytonland I guess and Rebecca offered her Tenniscult board as welll.

This is pretty pathetic. I am really glad Ll sued the ATP. He saw through them pretty quick

:sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: OMG!! I just saw the thread in Bugs & Errors. I can't believe that the ATP would do such a thing. :eek:

Lleyton was right all along, they are a bunch of effing clowns. :fiery: :fiery: :mad:

I had a peek at the Lleytonland boards.... and they confuse me! :o :sad: :sad: :sad:

He was too mild in his assessment.

On Lleytonland you have to type your entire message in the subject line (unless it's an article).

Why would any organisation shut down a site that hosts its fans?

You've gotta be fucking kidding me.

Guys, what're we gonna do?

I vote for taking refuge in the atp section of this board since it's where we were before... granted we won't have the same privacy we had at atpworld but it's better than nothing I guess...

And let me just express my :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: at the ATP and :sad: :sad: for atpworld being shut down... we lost everything we did in there... The Lleyki picture thread is gone, so is the article thread and all the links to lleyton audio/video... I can't believe it's gone :sad: :sad:

None of us know. I was on the board at 2.30am :o and when I logged in the follwing day it was gone. WTA_Amanda (the ATPworld admin) posted in the bugs and queries here that the board had been closed down because the ATP objected to it. Why they demanded this and the exact nature of their objection is a total mystery and the admins/owners of ATPworld won't say.
There have been lots of complaints emailed etc but really we are all in the dark. All we know is that Amanda categorically said the board would not be coming back and that all the threads are lost

Thanx, this sucks and stinks like hell :mad:

The ATP seems to become more like a mob organisation :fiery:

yes, this is a dark day. :sad: Not that I have ever posted on LLL, I'm just a reader. I did find the way it was set up incredibly confusing.
Hey, and I just read your signature right through for the first time. What a legend!

I still can't believe the ATP would do this! :fiery: We've lost everything now. The Lleyki thread, Locker room, articles, pictures, Legolas shrine, the Boggo thread... :sad:

Okay, I admit, I didn't enjoy my stay at ATPworld too much! But the people at ATP are dickheads.

Wow, I never looked at it like that! And I am going to miss all the new Andy fans I met, especially roddyruudy, but I know where I can find her...

:fiery: :fiery: :fiery: what the hell is that all about, closing down such a fansite? :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

& :sad: :sad: :sad: for all my posts there (even had more on atpworld than here)...

I haven't been online during the weekend (went on a little trip, hiking and such), come back online today and geez.... all of this now...

Message to Lleyton: please, keep on fighting the ATP... seems not only players are being screwed up...fans are treated like garbage ...

One piece of advice to all posters in CCL:
if you want to keep something, save the stuff on your harddrive... and don't postpone it like I did re atpworld (it was there anyway, y/s)...who knows one of these days this board might shut down as well...better be safe than sorry...
I still had so many pics and articles I wanted to save from LLL... can kiss that goodbye too... :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

The fact of having atpworld closed is already mindblowing, but on top of that without any previous warning whatsoever... :fiery: & :sad: not even a chance of retrieving some posts or anything :sad: :sad: :sad:

And duck, it's perfectly OK to post this in here; so many CCL'rs were on LLL too.

I stop my rant now :o

We are all holed up the Men's Tennis thread here (it used to be the ATP thread but they had to change it). Marly has set up a new board as a trial but until then, we're on Men's tennis
