We can pray and hope, I think it'll work again, but given the efficiency of the people at the WTA... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

A friend of mine called the WTA address site that they have on the Sanex board (I think in FL)and the guy told said something about the Host Company hasn't given them what they need for their (SANEX WTA) website. I don't know much about websites and didn't talk to anyone on phone so I really don't know for sure. I don't think it has anything to do with SANEX just more so the host company. Also he said that they were really going to try to get it up before the Australian Open. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> This is all second hand info so don't take this is the exact truth. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

OMG Dawn, I thought Anne was kidding when she said we should count ourselves lucky if the borad is up by the Austrialian Open. Looks like she wasn't... <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

I felt that it was SANEX'S problem too, but after my friend confirmed what the guy said on the phone I believe now that it is the HOST Company. I was so going to post a topic about this too. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> It's not the WTA's fault but the host company. That is why we can still browse the front page of the Sanex site. The message board (I THINK) is not run by the same host company. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> I hope this helps people.

Why do I get this feeling that the WTA is just finding excuses... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Well I think and I say that because when I was told of the phone conversation I was (half listening)as I was kinda busy.. anyway I think the hold up is because the Host Company won't give them what they need to continue with the message board website. What they need is what is over my head in computer knowledge. I am assuming it is files/data necessary info that they need to start a message board. The WTA has nothing to do with the message board because the Host company was the one running that site. I guess the Sanex just let them use their address. But like I said I am not 100% sure but this does make more sense in why it isn't up. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What Poe said makes sense and is along the same lines as what my friend said the phone call was about. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I still don't understand fully with my poor computer concept but thanks Poe anyway <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> . No, I don't want to re-start again, I want to look at the old threads <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

OMG... lost!!! What about those 1000+ posts threads that we had there... <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> It was so much fun.

But I guess you are right Poe, if they had managed to recover those threads, they would have set the board up sooner. Pffft @ them... <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> How could they do this to us <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Poeglet, you are probably right..it's all a matter of money. The WTA doesn't earn a penny on that board..they have to put lots and lots of money in a messageboard.

The ubb-licence seems to cost lots of money (didn't know that, but Poe did of course), and the server, and hosting will cost lots too I think. Especially because they get so many hits.

On the other hand, they had thousands of members. They can't let them all down..that's not really good for their image isn't?

So I expect it to come back, probably with cheaper software, what means more problems en less user-comfort.

Poe, why don't you apply for the job as the webmaster? This way, we'll have a well run board at the WTA <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> ... hopefully they'll give you decent pay <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

That'll be equally good <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> But you'll have to pay for all the licensing and stuff... <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

Ok now I am baffled again. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

If indeed the Sanex board knows that they will have to start over and that they may not retrieve old files.. then what are they waiting on? It's been 3 months already?? It just seems that something else is up? Can the old host company have info or files necessary for Sanex to hire or set up another web-site? Imho Sanex/tennis is getting HUGE. It seems that if they do another board that it should be the BOMB! and user friendly for the crazy fans. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
