Why?

Ok, I am seriously pissed off right now, I demand to know why the thread of Elena Dementievas magazine cover that was posted in GM got dumped back into her own forum when we have a thread of Sharapova in a bikini shoot thats still left in GM?

Questions...

1/ What the F**k is wrong with posting a thread with pics of a player in?
2/ If it is a crime, then howcome only Elenas gets shifted when Marias and others have not?

I am not the only one annoyed by this and I think that as its the members who keep this site going, especially those of us who paid good money to be here, we deserve to know why theres this double standard going on. Personally I cant see the problem with threads in GM containing players magazine shoots etc, never mind who that player is, but I guess its another thing on the long list of things we can no longer do, next you guys will be telling us that we need both our Grand Parents present to be able to take a crap.

I apreciate there needs to be rules, but right now I want to know whats going on.

Re: Why?

There is no consistency to what is moved. I just looked at GM page 1, and there's a vee and hank thread, and supergrunt has a Serena thread.
There aren't many Dementieva threads in GM, and how often is she on a cover?
Whenever Serena or Venus go out somewhere, there's a GM thread about it.
Whenever something happens to someone else, you're going to move it out of GM?

Re: Why?

The "powers that be" cant even be arsed to answer and explain themselves.

I checked the "rules" at the top of the GM page and NOWHERE does it say you cant post pics of a player etc, what CAN we post in GM? just stats and stuff?

Personally a good few moderators have very little power at all in the real world so when they get a job like this it goes to their heads and if they dont like a player or something they move it.

Just please remember, this is just a tennis discussion board, you are NOT in control of some great corporation or peoples destinies, what you are doing counts for nothing in the real world.

Re: Why?

I just want to understand it a little bit. Dementieva was on a magazine cover. And that's not GM worthy?
There's a thread Venus wins another award. That's about Venus being mentioned in a magazine. That's in GM for over a week now.

So what is the difference? If a tennis player being on a magazine cover isn't tennis news, then what off court happening is?

Re: Why?

We will discuss about making rules clearer to you guys for which threads do belong in GM and which don't.

A bit of patience.

Re: Why?

In the mean-time, can it go back? Dementieva articles and news are RARELY posted in GM, and people weren't saying "wow this thread needs to be moved, what a terrible thread."

Re: Why?

Yes. Three pages on Jankovic getting her nose roto-rootered is fine, speculation about Venus and her boyfriend is fine, but when a tennis player who is very popular gets on the cover of a nontennis magazine and does a two page interview, well, bump it back to her forum.

The only possible excuse I can see is that the article is a little old at this point and had already been featured in the Lena forum.

There are players I don't follow religously like Tati (what a great spread on her a few months ago in GM), Masha, (liked the SI shots), Dani (also had some magazine shots in GM) and a lot of other players. But I still enjoy having articles about some of my second-tier faves called to my attention. The interviews are often interesting and enhance my knowledge and appreciation of the game in GENERAL.

I'm sure that in addition to her hardcore fanbase (which is one of the largest and most active on WTAWorld) there are lots of other general tennis fans or people who follow Lena's career less closely who nonetheless enjoyed the pics and interview link. I know for a fact I saw a lot of sigs that I don't normally see in that thread, so apparently it was interesting to more than just Lena D. fans.

Re: Why?

cmon every one , you're making a big deal , a lot of threads moved to the player forum , I mysef report Maria doodles when they wrote on the GM , not because a thread moved you bash the moderators by this way , calm down and don't write things you'll regret after that ,
may be if you just make the thread by a way that doesn't make it very specific ,
and remember that we're here for fun , it's not so important to make a thread in GM about the player you like ,

Re: Why?

Can you guys be patient for a change? I said it would be discussed and made clearer for everybody.
