Who is Admin on this website ?

First, I don't know what the initial purpose of this website is, but I confess I have found it useful in tracking tournaments since I signed up some days ago.


I believe everyone enjoys live games compared to having to wait to download huge files from nasty rapidshare-like websites.

Today, I tried to help people to get to the WTA Moscow Finals, and it was just a PAIN having to post links and finding out the word pr0xy is banned...

Aside that, I thought most Admins are always around to help people find their way on forums...

ANYWAYS, for people out to seek live streams for other games, Goto www.myp2p.us and readup on TVANTS/Sopcast/and TVU.

you will do well to bookmark that site as it is the best live-ipTV foccused site in the world at the moment... and it is absolutely free.

Disclaimer, I am just another user trying to help ppl. I have no affliation with the owners/Admin on myp2p.us.

Finally, Congrats to Elena today. She was 100% spot on today.

There is another day for Serena.

Out.

Re: Who is Admin on this website ?

First of all, mods/admins aren't here 24/7 at your service. They do the best they can to help.
Second of all, the word p r o x y is banned, that's nothing to do with the staff, it's a technical thing and the same for all of us.
Third of all, for any questions regarding this board, go and have a look here: http://www.wtaworld.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53.

OK moving this to the question section, just so maybe someone can answer on the question of the word p r o x y.

Great Idea.

There is a way to edit the list of banned words, I am sure.

Thanks anyways.

Re: Who is Admin on this website ?

The question isn't weather there is a way or not. There might be decent reasons for which the technical staff decided to ban the word.

Don't get me wrong...At the risk of sounding immodest, I dare I am an IT person myself, so I have minute ideas of these "technical" things you refer to.

I am yet to come about a decent reason why pr0xy will pose a security threat or otherwise.

Anyways, I'll let them react.

Over

Re: Who is Admin on this website ?

fyi, those of us who are labeled "admins" on this site simply have greater moderating powers - we aren't involved with the technical side of the site. If you have a question about tech issues, you should probably send a pm to Steve, who actually works for the site owners.

This isn't specifically about pixie servers, but I can tell you that we've censored websites that provide or rebroadcast copyrighted material without permission when asked to do so by the copyright holders.

It's an ongoing problem. The webheads are trying to fix it.

If someone is power hungry you'll know they are an admin.

And there are many ways around that, as you and the thread starter both demonstrated. David (Poe) may have been naive enough to think the trolls don't know about hmmm, proxie servers, but I'd guess that Steve realizes how silly this is.
