for instance.... wtaworld was such a great board about a year ago when we had a few hundred members or so... enough to still get some good tennis info, but not enough for all the sludge that comes with large boards

and non tennis was a lot of fun

fabulous!

er intimate... and without the trolls

Look at me, my depth perception must be off again 'cause this hurts deeper than I thought it did. It has not healed with time, it just shot down my spine. You look so beautiful tonight, reminds me of how you laid us down and gently smiled before you destroyed my life. Would you find it in your heart, to make this go away and let me rest in pieces? Would you find it in your heart, to make this go away and let me rest in pieces? Look at me, my depth perception must be off again. You got much closer than I thought you did..

I think they both have pros and cons.

I do prefer the intimacy of ATPworld, and I can read everything and feel like I'm not missing anything. But, the fact that this board can be dead while there are always people on the other one is a bonus for it.

I do like this one a bit better I think, simply because all my friends are here.

They both have their ups and downs...

For instance, the AOL tennis boards had very few people posting on there (30-40, if that). While it was nice to be one of those "special members," eventually some of those people can get on your nerves...especially if you're constantly at opposing ends of an argument!

Although, the reason I left AOL was because there were some new members who came on, and completely polarized the board. They made whatever fights take place on WTAworld look like tea parties. I got so fed up that I actually started looking for a new tennis message board, and that's how I found WTAworld...

I actually feel like more of a "Senior Member" on ATPworld than on the other board...maybe because I was here when it began.
I just hope that even though I'm one of the "later" members of WTAworld, that I've been adding to it rather than making it sludge-y

We kinda touched upon this yesterday didnt we poe, and yeah i prefer the smaller board - its certainly more of a community than wta - which quite frankly give or take a couple of threads is pissing me off completely did i really say that

Some body told me you'd found new bonhomie
Going places you'd never go with me
I felt myself become a bitter old shrew
Oh id have bitten you in two if you would let me

Somebody told me youd found places to go
new people to know, new ladies and so
I felt myself become a bitter old shrew
Id have bitten her too, if you would let me

I like large boards because if your bored you dont have to wait ages for replies, and it moves a lot faster. You just have to learn to ignore all the crap that comes with it. I'm a member of quite a few small boards, smaller than this one, and they have their fair share of annoying posters too.

I enjoy them both a lot because with wta there are so many threads on non-tennis and so many people about you can never get bored,although you can get a lot of aggro but here I have a great time with my friends in the Ferrero forums and Rogi forums so they both have a lot to offer.

Best of luck to Rogi: Australian Open, Dubai and TMS Indian Wells champ 2004

Best of luck to: Juan Carlos Ferrero, Mark Philippoussis, Carlos Moya and Nico Lapentti. Tommy Haas is finally back! I missed you!

I like ATPWorld better, I feel like I can move around here much easier than I can WTAWorld, and there aren't places I "shouldn't go" or "can't go." It would be nice if we have a few more posters, but WTAWorld is waaaay too busy for my tastes. But, on the other hand, it's a great place to go when you're bored, precisely because it moves so fast

option 3.
wtaworld is more exciting, let's face it. but if you've had enough of all the bullshit, then atpworld is a very nice place to relax.

I like WTAworld a lot cos I prefer WTA than ATP, but I also enjoy posting in the Non tennis section here and also I can support all the argentineans playing out there

I enjoy both equal, but I post a lot more in WTA World than here.

I like both in different ways. But I still am not able to post at WTA boards.
