Moderators Please

Can you move the Williams doubles cheering thread back to it's rightful place in the Doubles Forum. Just because one person (who I've rarely seen post in that forum) complains is no reason to move it. I've never seen any of the regular posters of the doubles forum complain about it. I always thought that thread was good to have there, because, instead of creating a new thread for every match they play, their fans celebrated their results in that cheering thread.



Another thing, I didn't want to create this new thread but since the original thread was closed, I had to. Can moderators please stop closing all these threads? It's very annoying to read through a thread and then be unable to reply. If a thread gets out of hand, surely it's better to just delete it than close it?

Re: Moderators Please

Can you please post the link to the thread you're referring to? I moved on but am not sure if it's the one you meant.

Re: Moderators Please

that's it
I also don't see a problem with it, just because the WS BIGGEST hater has to have his daily bitch fit about them, no one else cared, other teams can do it too. And plus the people complaining I have seen post once or twice and that's it.

Re: Moderators Please

OMG. Not another one of these threads. They're not doing you any harm so why not just live and let live?

And as Kart would say, the report button is there for a reason.

Re: Moderators Please

In that case if you find a poster that goes out of line regularly, do report their post so action can be taken on their posts exclusively There are so many threads that go wrong (and that you don't notice because they're removed before you have the chance to read them) that sometimes we do get extra careful and remove them.

So yes REPORT is what you should definitely use.

Re: Moderators Please

About cheering threads, we do tend to leave them either in the tournament forum or the players forums. I'll bring up the issue with fellow mods though.

Re: Moderators Please

Guys, it's not because someone complained about it that it was ultimately moved.

There is a specific Williams sisters forum. We've got nothing like that for any other doubles partnership and are not likely to ever do so.

It was created because Williams sisters fans asked for it - and this is despite the fact that Venus and Serena already have individual forums.

Most of you don't even use that forum but it would have been created partly because Venus and Serena are among the most popular players on this board.

You can't all have it both ways. So either we get rid of the forum and the majority of those type of threads go to USA forum or into either Venus' or Serena's forum and then you can have your cheering thread back in doubles forum like everyone else or things stay as they are.

I'd like to see your thread go back to doubles forum as well because that's where I think it should be. However, you can't all have the luxury of an extra forum as well when no one else has. It's simply not fair.

Deleting threads mean that people can't see what's preceded. Threads get closed once the get answered or they go off topic or they get out of hand (or are expected to.) Sorry if that upsets you but it is unlikely to change. You're supposed to start a new thread for a new query.

Well there's a first (and a last time) for everything.

Now kindly steer clear of this thread as you'll only aggrevate the Williams sisters fans which will cloud the issue.

Re: Moderators Please

I just don't get why its such a big issue and why people care so much about whether a thread is in GM or in their forum. If you don't like it, don't enter it... And thats the same for all the other threads in GM (unless of course they are the ones like SeReNa Is FaT!!11) .

Kart, your memory is really failing you. Williams sisters forum was created first shortly after this board opened, and it was not meant as a doubles forum. Probably about a year later Venus and Serena got their own forums. You can't possibly be that old now, Kart. Oh, and I got nothing to add to the topic itself cause I don't really care one way or the other. I just had to pick on you.

Re: Moderators Please

^ I know that but it was kept open at the request of posters after the individual forums were created.

Though it may not have originally started out as a doubles forum, that's all it could serve as now.

I appreciate Williams sisters are a unique situation which is why the forum exists but the end point is simply use it or lose it.

Ok good point, but that thread was fine being in the doubles forum until one person complained (months after it was created). I just don't really agree with things working like that but I understand why it was moved.
