SUB-FORUM request



Hey Guys... I would like to request a SUB-FORUM for Michaella Krajicek in the 'Who Let The Dutch Out' forum. If you guys agree on that, the name of the SF should be: "Have A Little Faith In Mies"

Also, could the following threads be moved there:

http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=141648
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=137122

Thanks a bunch! Sorry if I am being difficult!

I only create a player forum for a top ten player. And seeing the dutch only have like one player, ie Krajicek, i wonder why she'd need a subforum in the dutch forum, she already has an entire forum for herself.

Well, the Who let the Dutch out forum is not only about Krajicek and it would be nice if she had her own little space within that forum. Plus, neither Seles, Rubin, Stevenson, Irvin, Harkleroad, Clijsters, Bovina, Kournikova, Krasnoroutskaya, Pierce, Testud, Golovin, Widjaja... (do I need to continue) is top10. Yet they all have subforums in their countries threads!

I asked because Michaella her fanbase is growing quickly. It would be nice is we could have a Sub-Forum for her... I and I know many others would really appreciate it!

Read some of the threads about creating forums and you find a logical answer to all your arguments

right now, there won't be a Krajicek forum. maybe our policy will change when we get the results of our survey - which included questions about player forums.

Most of the players you mentionned got a forum because it was affiliated to a site on our network, which now is not updated anymore, so we don't hand out player forums that easily anymore. Back in the days anyone could volunteer to create & update a player site and we'd gave him or her a forum dedicated to that player to support the site. That feature is no more, so yeah...

So my personal requirements for a player forum is top ten, but as you mentionned Clijsters too, i'll wait to give Krajicek a forum til she has a record comparable to that of Clijsters. If she gets to number one in the world and reaches several GS finals, i'll be TEH FIRST to make a Krajicek forum

Right now i really don't see a reason to give in to you, and not give in to the hundreds of requests i would get tomorrow if today a forum for Krajicek was created - especially since she _has_ a Dutch forum where you can root for her.

But as i said before, i hope we will eventually get the results of our survey, and maybe wtn_amanda will then give us some kind of guidelines on how to cope with requests for new player forums.

But understand that i cannot give in to a forum for Krajicek who isn't even top 100 or so, and then tomorrow decline a request for whoever is ranked above her. That's why i just use my (very) strict rules of only top tenners.
