General messages cleanup (merge Sharapova threads?)

This is just a suggestion to the moderation team. General messages of late has been flooded with threads relating to Sharapova's announcement of doping, reactions by press/other players etc. Perhaps it would be a good idea to merge threads of similar content into one thread "Sharapova doping revelation and related topics - chat" instead of having so many different ones which only talk about the same things.

That said the topic must 'die' on its own sometime.

Re: General messages cleanup (merge Sharapova threads?)

Would be good. There are already 123456.....whatever threads discussing practically the same thing on all parts. Because what's said in a thread, it's said in the other ones too.
GM is getting so boring these days. You can't talk about anything else since Monday.

Re: General messages cleanup (merge Sharapova threads?)

I was just about to make this thread.

There are going to be so many news articles coming out about this. We do not need GM to be spammed with all of them. It is time to get discussion about this centralized in a single topic, with a new topic only created for sufficiently big enough news (like a sentencing).

Please.

Re: General messages cleanup (merge Sharapova threads?)

Maybe I can bring up the idea of making a sticky so the topic will always be at the top of the page. Then people can post articles pertaining to Maria within that single thread ?

I think with IW starting the week and then Miami that GM needs the space to devote its attention to those tournaments. I don't see interest in Maria's "issues" dying down anytime soon over the next month or so.

I guess having all the threads in one big thread probably isn't a bad idea, I personally wouldn't want IW or Miami to be overshadowed on the board because of this.

Good idea, there are way too many now. How about just "Maria doping controversy"?

Let it die by itself.
This news is too big so it's normal for a while GM is flooded with it. I'm also tired of it and I'm moving on but eventually it'll clean itself. Indian Wells MD has just started.

I think at this point, a single thread would be over 5000 posts.


I could see three threads being enough to cover it.
- Maria's Doping Scandal (Live Commentary)
- Maria's Endorsements Fallout From the Doping Scandal.
- Maria's Future as a result of the Doping Scandal

Actually I feel that Maria's Forum should be moved to the Retired Players Section if Maria gets 2 years as a result of the Doping Scandal.

They can of course return once she's returned to tour and she, as well as other randomly chosen (read: all) Siberian Siren members have passed the necessary drug screens.

Right, of course. Yeah, just let it run its course, then, I guess, it won't kill us.

I don't agree with your idea @Matmagix . It's been such a pleasure time for me since this news came out.
