General Messages Best Poster 2008 Nominations (nominations closed)

Basically this is what it said in 2007, and it will be the same criteria again.

Please try to make top 3 rankings of posters, otherwise I won't know what to do when counting up votes.

General Messages Best Poster 2008

Nominate three posters who you think have been the best in General Messages. Your reasons for posting can be anything from liking their posts, agreeing with them, entertainment value or for whatever reasons.

Since this is a thread that is supposed to acknowledge posters, any reasons attached to those choices would be appreciated as would any honourable mentions, although those will not be counted in the voting process.

Order your nominations as follows:

1 - Poster A
2 - Poster B
3 - Poster C

In this scenario Poster A would get 3 points, Poster B, 2 points and Poster C, 1 point.

In approximately a week's time (next Wednesday) I will count up the nominations and there will be 20 posters put into two semi-final polls from which the top 5 of each will come out. Then there will be a final poll to see who is the best GM poster of 2008.

Shouldn't this be posted in Non-Tennis?

No, because a lot of GM posters/readers don't read non-tennis.

Well if that were the case, that would just prove how much the moderation has changed over the years, because no one would have even questioned it earlier.

Re: General Messages Best Poster 2008 Nominations

This forum is so ridiculously overmodded nowadays, this is sure to be moved to the sub forum of some forum no-one ever reads. Looking at the same page of threads day after day is a blast.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's the off-season, and GM is permeated with threads that are quite clearly troll-attempts. I see no reason why a contest that's been held here for the past two years should be moved
